I have been ardent shopper all my life and with my birthday coming up I decided to go clothes shopping! and the moment I look up Google for “discounts”, I come across strange terms like “black friday” and “Cyber Monday”, curiosity got better of me and I set to find out what really are these days anyway.

According to Wikipedia, “Black Friday” is…

“the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, which is the beginning of the traditional Christmas shopping season…According to Reuters, in 2007 135 million people participated in the Black Friday shopping rush.In many cities it is not uncommon to see shoppers lined up for hours before stores with big sales open. Once inside the stores, shoppers often rush and grab, as many stores have only a few of the big-draw items.”

and “Cyber Monday” refers to

“to the Monday immediately following Black Friday being the busiest day of the year for retail electronic commerce.”

These are two of the most prominent days during the US holiday season (towards the year end) when consumers can grab coveted items for dirt cheap prices and striking off those from their wishlists faster than they every could in the rest of the year. Heavy discounts off branded electronic goods, Coupon redemption and Freebie giveaways take place.

Such kind of practices are rarely seen outside the US, they have their disadvantages. Reports say that deaths have occurred due to human stampeded when long queues of shoppers who started waiting early on in the day rushed to get into the store. Here comes the benefit of shopping online, no more hectic lines to wait, no more coupons to hunt, no more logging in to a ton of different stores only to check upon the offers you have missed! (Aww) Best part, we have SavingsMela.com - your one stop guide in scouring the Internets for some great deals, enough said on get on the website already!
