    Price hikes and fake sales have risen in Black Friday offerings

    Price hikes and fake sales have risen in Black Friday offerings

    28 November 2021
    Pricing and comparison service PriceSpy says nearly 1 in 5 products it listed saw a price hike on Black Friday, an increase of 7 per cent compared to last year.

    More than 1 in 10 products offered a fake sale, where the price is hiked ahead of sale day.

    PriceSpy tech expert Jordan Tini says this makes items look like they're a great deal.

    Mr Tini says the Amazon Echo went to 180-dollars the week preceding Black Friday, and then went back to 100-dollars.
