Black Friday might be No Tech Deals Friday this year, thanks to the global tech shortage
If you were hoping to snag some deals on coveted tech such as a PS5 or a new MacBook for Christmas in this year’s Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales, then it might be time for a harsh reality check.
There are a few reasons this will affect retailers over the coming monts. Firstly, that price inflation is a result of high demand meeting low availability, which we were already aware of given how hard it is to buy certain products like some of the best graphics cards right now.
And, of course, if production is getting more expensive for manufacturers, it’s understandable that they would be less inclined to slap a nice discount on their top-performing products in the run up to Christmas. As they say, these things will sell themselves.
