Black Friday 2021 is here. Originally, Black Friday was a colloquial term that was generated in the United States to refer to the Friday that follows the celebration of Thanksgiving in that country, being that a date in which many stores offer special offers and discounts, taking advantage of the holiday spirit of the families, as well as being an ideal prelude to Christmas shopping.
However, with globalization, now that day is not only known in the United States but in other parts of the world including Mexico, where – although the El Buen Fin was created, a season of discounts inspired by Black Friday – Mexicoalso “honors” Black Friday with some websites offering special discounts.

Alerts for Black Friday 2021
Some reports indicate that Black Friday prices in recent years have not been considerable discounts and that products are worth the same as what they are worth months before the discount seasons arrive. So it is important to compare prices and check if the offers really reduce the original price of the product.
Online there are some tools such as price history, in which you can review the price history of some products (in dollars), which can give you an idea if you are really facing an offer that is difficult to reject or facing a scam. Use this site or another similar app to review the history of a product.
Of course, we also recommend staying with reliable stores that you know, as there are some sites that take advantage of the date to carry out other types of scams. Avoid buying from unfamiliar Facebook ads and always take care of your personal information.
