The Black Friday is a fixed appointment for all classes of customers. There are many fixed and on-line stores that create the most attractive deals in this post-thanksgiving weekend, dragged by the global competition. Therefore, runners can find good deals in this period, if they know where to look… and if they resist to compulsive shopping!
Let’s see some of the best deals that some of the global E-commerce are putting together.
Jeff Bezos’ Amazon giant is leading the way as usual, with its Black Friday’s week. On the website good deals on Garmin watches. The discount for the Forerunner models 935 and 945 is about 20%.
Speaking of GPS trackers, I recommend to look into the deals of many electronic stores, like Mediaworld (somewhere called Mediamarkt), and similar. But they are also well promoted in sport stores, like Sportmaster: the danish webpage offers the Garmin Forerunner 735XT with a 52% discount. In this case, good deals for trainers, trousers and running equipment can be found.
Decathlon is also providing a week of special deals. I visited the Italian shop, providing a terrific offer for the Garmin Forerunner 235, and good deals especially for winter training gear.
In conclusion, Black Friday for runners can be a good opportunity to buy something you need, at affordable price. In particular, high budget items as running shoes or GPS trackers. For the last ones in particular, the Cyber Monday (i.e., the Monday after, targeting electronic products) gives a second chance for good deals. But be careful and don’t overdo, buying something you don’t need 🙂
