If you ventured out at 3 a.m. for Target's Black Friday shopping, it's likely you lost some valuable sleep hours for not much gain. Over the weekend, TikTok detective DJ Downey Girl embarked on a shopping spree and found out that some of the Black Friday deals promoted by Target were, in fact, the same as their regular prices prior to the sales event.
Consider the example of the 75" Samsung CU7000 UHD 4K Smart TVs prominently displayed in the store, attracting shoppers eager for Black Friday bargains. A placard at Target announced these as "Black Friday Deals."
But then, DJ Downey Girl revealed another placard hidden behind the Black Friday sign, showing that the TV's price was the same as what Target offered before the major shopping event. Now, let's take a look at the video evidence:
In the video, Downey Girl uncovers more TVs with placards displaying prices identical to those before Black Friday.
Additionally, a swift Google Search reveals that the same TV model is available at Best Buy for the same price. Remember when "Black Friday" deals actually meant something? Now Target is just pretending to have Black Friday offers in order to lure in customers.
This serves as a cautionary tale for those who get swept up in the excitement of Black Friday, longing for that thrill of old-school shopping sprees. Instead of rushing out, it's wiser to stay cozy in bed, use your phone to set price alerts, and simplify your holiday season shopping.
