By edhat staff
A new report lists the best and worst items to buy on the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday.
Approximately 27% of American shoppers are planning to spend less during the 2021 holiday season compared to 2020, according to the personal-finance website WalletHub. Their report, 2021's Best Things to Buy on Black Friday, determines that 23% of items offer no savings compared with their pre-Black Friday prices.
To find out whether shoppers are really getting the best deals, WalletHub compared the “Pre-Black Friday Price” against the actual Black Friday price of a broad selection of items. In doing so, WalletHub identified the offers that are truly worth the hassle of partaking in the year’s biggest shopping craze.
