Amazon just got glorious coverage in Wired for Black Friday.
The Amazon Black Friday 2015 is eight days long and will start tomorrow. Today a story on Wired is titled: "Amazon's Ingenious Scheme to Undermine Black Friday." That is quite the headline. I am big fan of Wired. I just don't have enough time anymore to read the print magazine, kids, job, you know.

This story is though over the top. Amazon is not undermining Black Friday this year more than before. Each year the number of deals in the Amazon Black Friday sale are more. Every year Amazon is matching or besting more doorbuster deals advertised by competitors. What also happens though is that getting the best deals is as difficult as visiting a Walmart Store on Thanksgiving Day.
Don't get me wrong. I'd rather try and get the deal on Amazon than visiting a store, but I understand why shoppers still go. It is an experience. It is a different kind of complexity to score Black Friday deals than online. It is a matter of preference with which troubled consumers want to deal with on Black Friday.
Amazon is also not alone driving Black Friday online. Walmart said that the majority of deals will be online for the first time. Black Friday is establishing itself as I wrote earlier this week as Cyber Black Friday on Thanksgiving Day challenging Cyber Monday is sales and deals.
Don't get me wrong. The Amazon Black Friday 2015 will be massive, the biggest yet in history, but it is not undermining Black Friday.
