The holiday tradition of door-buster deals and long lines at retailers on the Friday after Thanksgiving goes back decades, but like many aspects of society, the Internet has brought about a lot of change. Black Friday has morphed into a whole month of deals and savings, and online retailers also regularly update prices throughout the event. With prices this good it'll be hard to resist. Be alert to bait-and-switch ads that are created to bring you in but push you toward more expensive items, final sales or deals that end before the day is done. Foot traffic is expected to drop for the second straight year on Thanksgiving as people switch to online shopping, wait until Black Friday to shop in-store - or maybe even enjoy traditional Thanksgiving dinners with their families. "Consumers will benefit from competitive promotions both in stores and online lasting the course of the weekend, allowing them to find the best gifts at the lowest prices". Meanwhile, Amazon.com opened its contract with Black Friday on November 1. To protect you on Black Friday, the BBB advises consumers to not believe all they see or hear without doing their own research.
