Which stores offer real Black Friday deals?

I am hoping to buy some household appliances this Friday for my kitchen and bedroom. So I would like to know which stores offer real discounts as opposed to putting fake prices differences to make them seem like there was a discount. I have seen this many times and I don't know which stores to trust

Walmart is always pretty good.

Re: Which stores offer real Black Friday deals?

If you want to know which deals are real you have to follow the market for some time. You can do it yourself or use the help of Toppreise which tracks prices over time: https://www.toppreise.ch/en

Stores in the US.

There is no Black Friday here, as there is no Thanksgiving.

You should get out of your hut and join civilization more often. There is still no Thanksgiving, but:

Thanks, will check it out.

Also, to the other posters, Black Friday is not exclusively a US thing. Many other countries provide sales on the same day. Salt has a Black Friday sale now https://www.salt.ch/de/blackfriday/

In the same vein as Halloween and Fourth of July.

And Christmas. Relatively new in the grand scheme of things.


The feast to celebrate the shortest day of the year is a lot older than Christianity.

I've walked past a few shops here in Zurich advertising "Black Days" as a new off-shoot of "Black Friday". So they've taken the idea of Black Friday and turned it into a whole new pre-Christmas sales drive.

Unless "Black Days" are indicative of all the crappy foggy murk blocking out the sun the last couple of weeks...

Re: Which stores offer real Black Friday deals?

For household and electronics, as others have already posted, there are plenty of deals to be had on Black Friday.

In previous years, the best deals I have come across were all online, particularly from melectronics, fust, mediamarkt. I'd recommend signing up to their newsletters, as you receive an early-bird link to their black Friday deals. Last year I got a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 from melectronics for 650 CHF (reduced from I think 900 down to 749 + some money off vouchers I had with them from migros shopping). It sold out within 2 hours, so the email heads-up is worth it.

Re: Which stores offer real Black Friday deals?

Amazon.de etc have some great Black Friday deals. Unfortunately all the ones I want don't ship to Switzerland.

Is there anyway (a service) to get them shipped to Switzerland rather then to a pickup place on the German border as the drive is a bit tedious from where I live?

Thanks.

Re: Which stores offer real Black Friday deals?

worth browsing the online sites early...

Nabbed some good deals, including a PS4 pro on media markt for 280 CHF from 420.

Celtic origins rather than specifically Irish. Welsh and Scots also have a decent claim.

Re: Which stores offer real Black Friday deals?

If social media is anything to go by, Black Friday is the new veganism/Greta phenomenon: I've heard more about it from people getting uptight about it than from the people who actually support it.

Me? I just don't care. I don't like shopping on any day of the year, unless it's a bookshop or Muji.
