Retailers Found to Inflate Prices in Run up to Black Friday to Overstate Discounts and Mislead Consumers, Watch Out!

Basically, retailers have LINK REMOVED to make either totally fake discounts - where products are reduced back down to their original RRP - or to overstate the size of the discounts. The Razer Blade gaming laptop is the perfect example, increased by $250 a few days before Black Friday in 2017, then 'discounted' $250 back down to the normal RRP!

The take home message here is to always check price history before making purchases on Black Friday. Use CamelCamelCamel for Amazon or the popular shopping App Honey to compare multiple sites. Stay safe out there folks!
