Why are Black Friday deals starting so early?
I am sure you have noticed that brands are already filling up your inbox with Black Friday deals. It is not because they want to get your money faster (well we all know they love that) but this year it is because of Supply Chain delays!
What is the deal with the Supply Chain?
Well, we can chalk this one up to the Delta Variant. We have all seen the pictures of container ships lined up in Bays across the world and this is the main reason for early shopping. With pandemic-related material shortages, the lack of labor, and delivery delays that have been going on for the last year and a half it is evident that this year it won’t necessarily be the price that will determine the deals but supply.
So, in order to avoid those depressing “sold out” notices that inevitably be popping up sooner than later we wanted to help you identify the best Black Friday deals for travelers before you have to go for second best.
Here is what you need to know about Black Friday 2021.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday takes place the Friday after the American Thanksgiving each year. This year it will fall on November 26, 2021. As we stated above, many retailers have already started rolling out deals early. Cyber Monday starts on November 29 so be ready for a weekend of sales on Black Friday weekend.
What is Black Friday?
Black Friday is an annual retail sale in North America that takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving. The name itself comes from the time in the calendar year that a company goes “into the black” or begins to turn a profit for the year. This usually happens because of the surge of customers looking for those holiday deals.
