Black Friday is a period of crazy promotions that takes place every year, historically on the last Friday of November. This year, Black Friday falls on November 29, 2019. In France, most major retailers sell off their prices, with special offers up to 70% off on some items - and this during the entire weekend or even all week for some brands.
2. Where does the Black Friday ?
Black Friday is a tradition that takes its source in the United States. Traditionally, Black Friday follows the Thanksgiving holiday, for which reason it was held in November. The expression, popularized in the 70's, may be the fact that the streets are "black world" during this period. Some also argue that the sales made on Black Friday allowed the retailer of "out of the red" and write in black the profits to be made, in their books of accounting.
3. Black Friday in the Black Friday week
If the United States, Black Friday refers to the last Friday of November and precedes the Cyber Monday the following Monday, in France, the promotions often begin a little before. This year, the pre-Black Friday starts on Monday, 25 November, and the promotions will end for some brands the following week, either on 2 December.

Today, Black Friday has become essential for the larger signs in French, in e-commerce and in-store. Thus, we can expect huge promotions, even more important than that during the balances.
5. When the first offers will be available ?
The pre-Black Friday will start as of Monday 25 November, maybe even before for some brands. Some will run to the top starting on Tuesday, Wednesday, other on Thursday, and still others will not make the pre-Black Friday and reserve for Friday.

Big promotions are also expected on the radius appliances, including small appliances. Finally, there will be some very attractive discounts on furniture, particularly on sites selling online.
8. Black Friday : the best time to do their Christmas shopping
there are several reasons to do their Christmas shopping during the Black Friday. First of all, the promotions of Black Friday are often much better than the promotions of Christmas. Even if you want to buy an article that comes out just before Christmas, it is sometimes possible to get a pre-order with a discount during the Black Friday.
You will also advance on other consumers. During the frenzy of Christmas shopping, it happens that your article is out of stock. If this happens to you on Black Friday, you've still got time to wait until there's new stock or to look for a plan B.
If you order on the Internet and you take it late, you take the risk of not receiving your gifts on time. Even if most of the merchant sites to display a date from which they no longer guarantee the delivery of your parcel before Christmas, it is better to have the peace of mind and receive them in early December.
9. What are the pitfalls to avoid on Black Friday ?
When Black Friday, the promotions are so tempting that it is possible to fall into a number of traps.
Beware of the crossed price, some online sites may inflate prices before Black Friday to see a reduction very interesting, which really is not that much. Do you have a list of shopping in advance, and write down the prices in order to be certain of getting a good deal.
If you order online before validating your cart too fast, be sure to verify that the amount of the basket corresponds to what you will actually pay : the amount must be inclusive of VAT, and verify the provenance of the product. If your item is shipped outside the European Union make sure that you do not pay for the shipping costs exorbitant or customs fees.
