PcComponentes has started Black Friday 2020 offering good discounts on 3,000 products in your catalog. Under the slogan “United for Technology”, the Spanish retailer will extend the promotional campaign for two weeks until November 29 at 11:59 p.m.
Black Friday has become a required appointment of the business calendar. Although it has little to do with its origins as “Black Friday” in the 1960s in Philadelphia, when it was celebrated for a single day and in a physical store (always the Friday after the American holiday of Thanksgiving) its great objective still in force: promote a mass purchase day offering great discounts on all kinds of products.
Certainly, both Black Friday and its online equivalent Cyber Monday have lost their essence and now you will be able to see offers in the most unsuspected places and for a period of time that continues to grow. Do you buy the Christmas lottery in August? Do you eat nougat in September? This the same.

Tips for Black Friday 2020
Buying is an art and more in a period where you are going to be bombarded with all kinds of offers and the most unexpected commercial. As we do every year in each great shopping promotion, we remind you of those general tips that you must take into account to take advantage of the discounts.
Beware of Black … Fraud
If in the United States we see year after year price reductions as real as they are spectacular, in Spain and Latin America they are not even close. In addition, in the country that invented the picaresque, unscrupulous retailers even manage to raise prices during the campaign and in the most crude way: they raise prices in previous weeks and then lower them in Black as if they were “bargains.” It is essential to know the official price set by the manufacturer, the historical price of the products and make a thorough comparison between retailers. You may be surprised at the differences.
Prepare the shopping cart
Although you always have to be open to the arrival of an offer that you cannot refuse, do not get horny, think about your needs and make a prior budget. If you are clear about the product you want to buy and you expect (or have already seen it advertised) that it will be offered with a discount on Black Friday, you can prepare the shopping cart with those items in advance. You can also bookmark or activate “wish lists” as the basis for your purchase intentions.
Update your online purchase accounts
In some e-commerce platforms (such as Amazon, which also has early Black Friday deals enabled), speed when pressing the buy buttons is key to accessing great deals. The best ones last minutes or seconds. Spend some time reviewing your online accounts, personal details, shipping and billing addresses, and payment methods. If the online retailer supports it, activate the one-click purchase.
Credit Card – Security
Data breaches are the order of the day and attacks on large retailers such as Target, Home Depot or eBay have been notorious in previous years. Cybercriminals are waiting for these days of massive purchase to act. As a security measure, it is important to use a single credit card to minimize risks and ensure that it has protection against fraud. The same with any other payment method, PayPal or passwords for online banking, as well as reinforcing the general security measures against malware.
Tracking and Location
Some retailers use browser data to determine their geographic location, and depending on this, they show different offers and different prices to users in different areas. It does not happen in all markets or with all sellers, but if you want to avoid it, you can disable location tracking in your web browser. Other possibilities are to use incognito mode or VPNs for purchases in third regions. If you buy outside your country of origin, be very careful with shipping prices and fees.
As in periods of “sales”, the guarantee of products purchased on Black Friday 2020 is the same as at any other time. Demand your rights as a consumer. In Spain, two years minimum for any electronic product. The same for shipments and returns (14 days from receipt of the product) or maximum delivery time (30 days for Internet purchases if a shorter time is not specified).
Don’t forget about Cyber Monday
Black Friday is the most popular discount shopping day, but Cyber Monday – held just three days later – is even more relevant to online tech shoppers because it is entirely dedicated to e-commerce. Discounts are usually even more important even if the number of products on offer is lower. If you did not buy anything during the Black weeks, you can review the shopping list calmly during the weekend, hunting for that item in the “Cyber Monday” that this year will be held on November 30.
Finally, insist: go prepared to end up empty-handed. As a responsible consumer, make a prior budget of what you can spend, think about your needs and avoid compulsive purchases. Shopping, sales, and the world in general don’t end with Black Friday. During these two weeks we will offer you selections with the best offers that we find.
