Black Friday is here and many are bargain hunting.
But there is not always something to get.
Because some providers make questionable offers.
Munich – Since Black Friday has also existed in Germany, presumably introduced by Apple in 2006, people here have gone completely crazy.
With Christmas just around the corner, many want to grab a bargain and fulfill their long-cherished dreams without breaking the bank.
And almost all companies are participating, from the large electronics retailer such as MediaMarkt, which has numerous offers, to the local bakery on the corner.
Online providers outdo each other with discounts anyway.
Black Friday Deals: Companies often cheat on offers - customers get angry
But the customer cannot always save, because many companies play with our feelings and give discounts that are not correct at all.
Like these headphones, which were offered on Amazon during Black Week, with a supposed 50 percent discount, but they had cost the same price two weeks ago.
The day before Black Friday 2022, on November 24, a user posted a photo of a similar case on Twitter.
As can be seen in the picture, it was taken in a Saturn.
On it you can see an offer sign for a tablet from Lenovo.
The suggested retail price (RRP) is EUR 149.00 and is crossed out.
Then a discount of 0 euros is listed.
The current price: 149.00 euros.
The user commented: "Black Friday is dangerous this year."
Whether the offer sign is actually in a Saturn cannot be checked, but it looks real, and similarly absurd discount campaigns happen again and again.
In response to a request from our editors, a spokeswoman for Saturn commented on the tweet.
Since the market cannot be seen from the photo, it is not possible to understand the case.
However: “The Lenovo tablet shown in the photo is not a promotional product during Saturn Black Friday Week.
It has a regular retail price of 149 euros.”
