So far, shoppers spent over $3 billion on 19 days throughout this holiday season. Last year around this time, Adobe only counted five days where spending exceeded $3 billion.
So at the very end of your piece, you acknowledge this – people are spending so much more than ever before, just not on one stupidly specific day.
While early sales might’ve been the main factor behind the dip
global supply chain issues could’ve been another contributor.
They were not.
Stop drumming up supply chain and inflation scares when that is obviously not the case here. Every retailer has been running ‘Black Friday’ sales all week, if not all month.
My only ‘Black Friday’ spending happened on Tuesday and Thursday thanks to such early sales. Those purchases satisfied any needs/wants/impulses and I didn’t spend a single penny on Friday. Countless people are in the same position – and none of our purchases counted for Black Friday sales since they weren’t on Friday.
I’ve been a huge Best Buy proponent for years. It’s better for everyone to have more shopping options rather than just everyone using Amazon or Walmart. Also they had a very friendly price matching policy.
Best Buy paywalling online Nintendo Switch OLED drops solely to their $200/year members made me end my relationship with them. Instead of pre-ordering the new Pokemon Shining Pearl for in-person pickup at my local Best Buy like usual, I walked in to a Walmart to use their $10-off new release deal.
