Mexico got a Head Start on Black Friday 2012

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.
