The Black Friday sale event is officially celebrated on November 24, but as usual, electronics retailers have announced their offers well in advance. Here are the hottest phone offers so far.
Black Friday has traditionally been the busiest shopping day of the year. Nowadays, the event has stretched from both ends into a two-week-long consumption party.
Among the electronics retailers operating in Finland, Gigantti and Veikon Kone opened the game already on Monday morning by announcing their own offers. Tuesday night was Power’s turn, and on Thursday morning Verkkokauppa.com also revealed its own sale products.
Telecom operators have also joined the phone offer frenzy either with official Black Friday or Black Week campaigns or otherwise just by lowering the price of certain models.
Don’t fall into the trap
In any case, bargain hunters should keep a cool head when shopping and check the price of the product in a competing store as well. A certain retailer’s discount price may well be another retailer’s normal price, so a little background work pays off.
In this article, we collected the best smartphone offers so far in three different price categories. Some of the products have had an almost equally good offer in the last 30 days.
Traditionally, retailers have introduced new offers closer to the main day of the sale event. This year, Black Friday is celebrated on November 24.
