How long do Black Friday tech deals last?
Even though it’s called “Black Friday”, make no mistake. The whole month of November, including one week after the event, can be considered a contract holiday.
Several sales will continue after Black Friday, but the stock is likely to run out of particularly good deals soon – so it’s still important to trade fast. If you miss a Black Friday sale, you can probably still get similarly good deals for Cyber Monday.
Which is better for technical appointments, Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
Both Black Friday and Cyber Monday offer excellent deals, but you may find more technical variation on Cyber Monday. Black Friday tends to focus on technical deals for your home that you can find both online and in stores, sometimes with exclusives for the latter. Cyber Monday often brings game and PC deals to smart home and entertainment deals – but you can only shop them online.
In short, the best vacation depends on what you are looking for and how you shop. If you need to get something fast, Black Friday may be better as you can shop in the store.
