There are some American trends that are so awesome that the rest of us just HAD to bring them to our countries. The Black Friday Sale is one of them!
It took a while to take off in Switzerland properly but is now one of the most-awaited shopping events in the country – helped along by the massive (sometimes up to 80%) discounts offered by brands across the country. This year Black Friday falls on November 29th, and with just a few days left to go, promotions are on full swing!
Now, the actual offers are revealed only closer to the D-day, so we can only offer some predictions based on last year trends and latest announcements made by brands. In 2019, tech lovers can look forward to –
Smartphones and subscriptions
Salt, Yallo, and Teleboy, along with Apple, Huawei, and Samsung, are expected to take part in the Black Friday 2019. With so many premium brands vying for attention, the discounts are going to be STEEP, which makes this the BEST time to buy your new phone.
Looking to upgrade your TV? Then just wait for a few more days and get more for your budget on the 29th. Samsung leads the pack and if the last few years are anything to go by, then you can expect a significant discount on a wide range of TVs, projectors and home cinema devices from them. For other brands such as Sony, Phillips, and LG, distributors like Media Markt is a right place to find Black Friday deals.
From an iron to the next-gen smart kitchen robot, Black Friday deals have a lot to offer for the Kitchen and the rest of the home. We recommend you use this opportunity to invest in big-ticket items such as smart home technology, refrigerators, and similar items. As always, Samsung will be a big player on 29th but do keep an eye on Dyson.
Apple has been a significant presence in the Black Friday Sales (they are the ones who started it in Switzerland back in 2006), so expect to see some attractive discounts on Apple tabs and laptops. Then there is the ever-present Samsung giving out enticing offers on computers and accessories.
How to get the best of Black Friday sales?
Deals are announced almost at the last minute, so subscribe for newsletters from the big brands and keep tabs on their websites (especially Apple and Samsung). Media Markt is a best place to get all tech items under one roof, so becoming a club member is a good idea as members get access to deals a day before the rest of the country.
And don’t rush into a decision. The Black Friday sales is actually a 3-day affair and extends into Cyber Monday! So take your time and spend your money wisely!
