According to Nerdwallet.com a new study has found that this Black Friday, consumers should expect to pay the same or even a little more than last year. NerdWallet, reportedly an unbiased personal finance website, recently analyzed 22 Black Friday ad scans and found 20 of those ads listed at least one item at the same exact price as in the retailer's 2011 Black Friday ad. This means what consumers might think are great deals are in fact nothing special.
But don't despair. Just when you think you're going to be taken to the cleaners this Black Friday, Iconosys Inc., a Californian mobile app safety company has come up with something to save the day, the Black Flyday 3.0 mobile app.
According to a press release fro Iconosys, Black Flyday 3.0 tracks and notifies friends through your smartphone or other smart device of killer "door buster" and other daily deals normally meant for impulse shoppers on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. This latest version is a Facebook-integrated smartphone app reported to "empower today's die-hard bargain hunter shoppers to take full advantage of the stream of tantalizing purchasing opportunities created by the booming Daily Deal industry." It reportedly does this in real time, as the deals are being announced. In addition, it allows users, through Facebook, to communicate with Facebook friends and fellow bargain shoppers and even provides a map and directions.
So don't miss out on the "door buster" daily deals this Black Friday. Go armed with your Black Flyday app and, if you hurry, even the app won't cost you a penny. It is free until Black Friday 2012.
