Every year reports appear ahead of Black Friday declaring its death. The most hyped shopping event is though far from dead and still one of the best opportunities to score deals if you know how.

Black Friday has very long history that we have captured earlier this year in this extensive Black Friday History report. It has changed though quite a bit in recent years not only because of the advances in online shopping. If you know how Black Friday works, you can score the best deals of the year. There are of course plenty of bad deals because of the tremendous hype that surrounds Black Friday. Each year ahead of Black Friday reports appear that either say Black Friday is dead or like in this new report of ABC's Channel 9 (WCPO) Black Friday is so yesterday. The Report in the series "Don't Waste Your Money" hosted by John Matarese cites results from a Wall Street Journal analysis of 6 years of pricing data.

The analysis comes to the conclusion that the overall prices are not on Black Friday. Items like blenders, sweaters, toys, holiday items are cheaper in mid-December. Name Brand TVs are deemed to be cheaper before Black Friday. According to the report video game consoles and tablets are cheapest on Thanksgiving Day.

The results of the price analysis are not wrong in general. What is though important here is that Black Friday sales already starts early November. The whole month is Black Friday. The actual Black Friday is almost an afterthought as the Black Friday creep has moved the sale to Thanksgiving Day. Especially the online Black Friday sale has basically ended when the actual Black Friday begins as deals are sold out.

Our Black Friday 2014 coverage will kick off in high gear once the first Black Friday deals are offered online after Halloween. We will analyze Black Friday ads and deals again for you as in the past years to point you to the best Black Friday deals of the season. Black Friday is so not yesterday, if you know how to play it.
