When does Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday fall out in 2017? What should you consider buying?

This year, the black-market sale of Black Friday falls on November 24, traditionally on Friday after the American Thanksgiving. The marketers are already getting “amazing promotions” and “big discounts”, and we advise on what to consider in this consumer madness so as not to end up with an empty wallet and a heap of unnecessary things bought at a “promotional” price.

Is “Black Friday”which falls on November 24 , and the following Monday, November 27, “Cyber ​​Monday” about online shops is a good day to make big purchases? Marketers and sales professionals want to convince us that this is the reason for this media noise, colorful banners with percentages, battles for big TVs and designer handbags in the news, and a sense of consumerism. But how is it in reality? Is 24 and 27 November profitable to go deeper into the pockets?

So what to look out for while planning your shopping for “Black Friday” and “Cyber ​​Monday”? First, do not be fooled by the “magic” that day. It is often the case that we are tempted by the height of the discount we do not even consider whether a given purchase makes any sense. Would not discount a percentage of that blended smoothie would have us even if we did not drink a smoothie? Before any purchase you should ask yourself if we would buy a given product, if not a discount or a discount. If the answer to this question is “yes”, then it is worthwhile to put money on the counter.

It is also important to check that the price is indeed a discount. The normal practice of shopping is to short-term raise prices to lower them later. “Which?” In the year 2015, he analyzed the prices of 178 products that had been discounted as part of the Black Friday sale. It turned out that as much as 49 percent. Articles were cheaper at some time before or after the “Black Friday”, and real discounts this day only concerned … 8 percent. Products! Let’s not be fooled.

What’s more, purchased in consumer amusement can not usually be returned. In addition, they often have some damage or hidden defects. Sellers know perfectly well that customers who pull them off their hands will not pay attention to them, and evident conscience will only appear at home when the “fever” is already falling. And then it may be too late …

In conclusion, the “Black Friday” or “Cyber ​​Monday” can buy something at an extremely attractive price, but you have to be very careful and reasonable. Keep track of prices of our products in popular price comparisons available on the internet. These sites have a history of the price of thousands of articles, so you can easily see if Black Friday discounts are real or just a marketing tick.

Pope calls for peace in Holy Land in meeting with Greek Orthodox patriarch

Pope Benedict on Monday called for a multiplicity of efforts to achieve a “stable peace” and allow coexistence in the Holy Land during his audience with Greek Orthodox Patriarch Teofilo III.


“This meeting offers me the opportunity to once again convey my closeness to all those who suffer from the conflicts that have plagued the Holy Land for decades,” the Pontiff said before the patriarch and his entourage, who will remain in Rome until Wednesday.

Francisco stressed that “the uncertainty of the situation and incomprehension between the parties continue to cause insecurity, limitation of fundamental rights and abandonment of the land itself for many.”

“That is why I invoke the help of God and I ask all the people involved to multiply their efforts so that the conditions for a stable peace based on justice and the recognition of the rights of all can be given,” he added.

For this, the pope said, “we must firmly reject the use of any type of violence, discrimination and intolerance for people or places of Jewish, Christian or Muslim worship.”

“The Holy City, whose status quo should be defended and preserved, should be a place where all can live peacefully, otherwise the spiral of suffering will continue for all,” he argued.

In this regard, he especially addressed the situation of the Christian community so that “it is always recognized as an integral part of society” and that, as citizens, “they never tire of their own contribution to peace”.

On the other hand, Francis expressed his desire to progress “on the path of full unity” between the Catholic Church and the Greco-Orthodox, separated since the “Great Schism” of the eleventh century.

“I am well aware that some of the wounds of the past continue to leave a mark on the memory of many. We can not change the history, but without forgetting the serious lack of charity for centuries, let us turn side by side to a future of full reconciliation and fraternal communion “the Pope concluded.
