Transcript for How to Differentiate Deals From Duds on Black Friday
We are back now with that Black Friday rush. It is a famous time of the year for great bargains but are some of those deals really just studs? Becky Worley has the answer for us. Reporter: Black Friday, TV ads and deal sites tout the best prices of the year but gadget review site the wirecutter says hold on. Deals on quality products aren't as plentiful as you'd think. We found that somewhere under 1% of the deals were actually worthwhile. Reporter: They say the top rated items aren't as likely to be discounted. They also point to price inflation that can take place around the holidays to make discounts look bigger. Take this Dyson vacuum. Its Black Friday price $299 but if you look back it was being sold for $80 less last August. TVs, though, are a different story. In terms of products that give people some of the greatest discounts on Black Friday and someone's always looking out for it's TVs. You can get good discountses on great TVs and great discounts on good TVs. Reporter: Also apple products. They rarely go on sale but can be discounted on Black Friday by 10% to 15%. So how do you weed out the good dials from the bad? First, research. Read reviews in advance. Then use a deal aggregator site like bfads.net and let you search for the lowest price and use this site, camelcamelcamel.com, crazy name to track price over time. If you find a lower price in the past hold on. Odds on it'll go back down in price sometime after black Friday. One last point. I talk to my contacts at Amazon. They say their holiday lightning deal, flash sales that come and go will be the lowest price on that item in the last 365 days guaranteed. But if you want alerts on them, you need to use the Amazon app. Add an item to the shopping list T has to be on your list and if it gets a price cut, robin, you get a notification in realtime. Becky, you are in the know sharing your contact information with us and our viewers. I'm shopping for you. You have a great weekend. Thanks, beck.
