While American consumers eagerly await Black Friday 2012, Mexican consumers are basically already done with "El Buen Fin" reports ABC News. The Mexican government backed a heavily promoted Mexican version of Black Friday that started last Thursday and lasts until Monday.
As in the U.S. the sales weekend in Mexico is supposed to offer the best deals of the year. The ABC reports says people lined up in the hundreds for deals. But have these deals been good? It turns out that the discounts in the Mexican Black Friday pretty much suck. We talk about around 10% discounts. The big draw is though that products are sold on credit. It means consumers pay them off in small monthly payments.
I prefer the US version of Black Friday. It is unique. Every attempt to bring this sales pop culture phenomenon to other countries failed.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
