Specials, but beware of the discounts presented as exceptional
Warning: it is not uncommon that discounts announced during these periods of “Black Friday” are out of step with the tariffs on these items in recent weeks. And that still seems to be true for this 2018 edition: we find barred prices on a whole bunch of articles that do not really exist elsewhere, with promotions of the order of -10% presented as much higher. During Black Friday, merchants are not forced to follow the same rules as during sales. It is imperative for traders, during sales, to prove the effectiveness of discounts, the crossed-out prices must correspond to prices actually posted the previous weeks. This is not the case for Black Friday, which is not yet well framed by the law. Compare offers on the web before buying!
