Buy Hoverboards Christmas Shopping: Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
When it comes to the Christmas season, people are not only looking forward to celebrating the holidays with family and friends. This is also the season for on-going sales. Whether you are shopping for new hoverboards for sale or the latest iPhone model, now is the time to take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Yes, Virginia, this is the time of the year where you can get DVD players for as low as $30 and get $30 to $40 discount on your purchase from these two shopping events. But where will you spend your Christmas shopping money? Would you take advantage of buying online or would you rather get hold of the best hoverboard with in-store shopping?
Black Friday has been in existence since 1932 and starts the day after Thanksgiving in the US. Despite having to compete with other shoppers to get the best deals, over 60%of consumers prefer to go to stores when shopping, according to a conducted survey.
In the case of Black Friday deals offered by participating establishments, you can get a big slash on prices for electronics, computers and other products such as self-balancing scooters. It also gives you the chance to see and check the item being bought first-hand as well as try on clothes you intend to buy before making the purchase. When it comes to products being out-of-stock, so long as it is there on the shelf and you place it in your cart and pay for it, you can go home with it right away and need not wait and pay for shipping. As for getting better deals, say, on the Lambo hoverboard you want, there are items that cost less when bought in stores than online.
On the other hand, if you do not want to drive up to the store and prefer to shop in the convenience of your home or from your mobile device, Cyber Monday is the better option for you. No need to wake up early and queue to get in with other shoppers. Also, shopping is faster since you just have to search for the item, place an order, check out and wait for the delivery date. As for discounts, some retailers who have stocks left from Black Friday often offer bigger discounts for these items on Cyber Monday. Shopping online is also more convenient since you can do it from the convenience of your home or basically anywhere so long as you have internet connection.
Both options have drawbacks, too. With Black Friday, you need to wake up so early and if you are not a morning person, this can be a challenge. You also have to deal with long lines, crowds and yes, chaos as what had happened in the past. Conversely, with Cyber Monday, great deals are already offered in stores and on Black Friday so if you wait for Cyber Monday, some of the items you want to buy might already have been sold out. You also get to miss the chance to check the smart self-balancing scooter you are purchasing and sometimes, what you see in pictures are not what they are in reality.
Now that you know the pros and cons of shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can now have an idea on what works for you.
