Every year, people who enjoy spending time mark Black Friday in red in their calendars. Because on this day, retailers such as Amazon *, Media Markt * or Saturn * attract with incredibly good deals. And in 2020 there will again be a whole host of offers for Black Friday.
When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday happens every year after the fourth Thursday in November. That’s because Black Friday originally came from the United States, where it kicks off the Christmas shopping season the day after Thanksgiving. This year Black Friday falls on November 27, 2020.
Black Friday in Germany
In recent years Black Friday, which was originally a purely American consumer event, has spilled over to Germany. Apple was the first company to introduce Black Friday in Germany in 2006. There are now deals and generous discounts on goods such as televisions, smartphones and clothing almost everywhere on this day. This not only pleases consumers, but also boosts sales in retail. According to the payment provider Klarna, online purchases on Black Friday alone increase by 64 percent compared to a normal Friday.

But the shops promise more than they usually deliver. An analysis by the consumer forum Mydealz showed that discounts of this magnitude are rather rare.

Shopping tips for Black Friday 2020
In addition to the sometimes rather meager discounts on Black Friday, there is the accusation that the offers are often counted towards astronomically high recommended retail prices, which minimizes savings for the consumer. Nevertheless, you can find bargains on Black Friday. Above all, it helps to subscribe to the shops’ newsletters in advance so that no sale is missed. Loyalty programs such as Payback or the Media Markt Club also often offer exclusive deals for members. There are also discounts, especially on Amazon, before Black Friday during Cyber Week. And after that, almost all online retailers organize further campaigns on Cyber Monday.
