Black Friday or Fake Friday? Don’t be fooled

Black Friday is definitely less spectacular in Poland than in the United States. The reason is the special measures taken by stores, which often artificially increase prices, and then lower them on Black Friday. However, there are ways to check that prices are actually lower. It is worth knowing them in order not to fall for fake Black Friday promotions.

The Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK) reminds you of the most common types of abuse related to Black Friday or Cyber ​​Monday sales. This is e.g. juggling prices, i.e. creating the appearance that the promotion is attractive by raising prices a few days earlier to lower them just before the famous shopping holiday. Another type is promotional “baits”, i.e. encouraging the purchase of various products with an allegedly high discount, while in fact the promotion applies only to selected products. The customer sees the information: “second product for -50 percent”, and then it turns out that it is only about the goods of a specific brand, and not the entire range of the store.
