If you’re lucky enough to be visiting Puerto Vallarta during Black Friday 2021, it’s a great time to find the lowest price on hot products, with many local retailers offering bargains galore, so let’s take a look at the best Black Friday deals this year.
Some of the mysteries of the brain and the secrets of the heart include the sheer delight of discovering a bargain. We’re talking about items that have been hoped for – for a very long time. Finding ways to purchase something that was previously outside personal budgets is exciting.
Black Friday 2021 falls this year on November 26th and you can have a super day out in Puerto Vallarta, visiting an array of shops. You can even venture into some flea markets and enjoy doing some customary haggling.
Spend and Save Simultaneously
The year Black Friday started has an interesting history. The term “Black Friday” was first used to describe the retail holiday in 1961, in Philadelphia. It was used to describe the heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic on the day after Thanksgiving. The term had gained traction and was being used outside of Philadelphia by 1975.
Retailers now use a different definition for the term. For many businesses, Black Friday represents the point in the calendar year when they go “in the black,” or begin to turn a profit for the year. The profit they make is due to an increase in holiday shoppers looking for bargains.
Enterprises from mom and pop stores to online retailers, hotels and restaurants, independent shops, and all types of businesses take part, giving savings to consumers.
For you, all that’s needed is a credit card, or cash – and some energy!
A wonderful idea is to come to Puerto Vallarta and stay at Garza Blanca Resort to get some Black Friday deals while relaxing in paradise. You can have a luxury vacation, go on a shopping spree, save some money – and even book your next vacation online, in a sale while you’re there!
Cheap flights, hotel deals, and special offers for both are always available through Garza Blanca’s website around Black Friday. If you are flexible with the date, you can end up with huge savings on your next getaway.
Step By Step Shopping Success
At the start of a Black Friday shopping day, it’s easy to balance your time and manage everything by recording what you want using a simple notes App on your phone, or by carrying a handwritten notebook.
Black Friday sales can be fun, but you have to remember, a deal is only a great deal if you really need the purchase. Our hearts are organs of intelligence, with their own profound influence from our emotions, our reasoning, and our choices.
Yet when it comes to shopping, our brains and our hearts don’t always harmonize.
Impulse buying can lead to disaster if you end up buying stuff you don’t need. Therefore, it’s important to get yourself in the right mindset before you start shopping. It’s also imperative you have a plan, and stick with it.
Garza Blanca Puerto Vallarta knows exactly how to get you set up for the day of shopping ahead. A hearty breakfast at the Blanca Blue restaurant creates an environment where you can enjoy a slow and authentic moment of planning your shopping day.
Or why not enjoy some cocooning dreaminess of having a personal chef come to your suite to cook you a pretty amazing breakfast while you get dressed for the day? This service is a perk included with our Residential Retreats program when you book an all-inclusive plan.
You can have a chat with the concierge staff. They will have been spotting the hottest discounts and deal trends in town, and they will relay these to you. It’s like having your own personal deals editor, giving you updates.
The hotel can also organize a private driver to accompany you. Black Friday in Puerto Vallarta can become a tour in itself!
Puerto Vallarta Wow
Your first stop should be La Isla Shopping Village. With its unique fountains and Venetian-style canal, the whole complex gives a fresh touch to Puerto Vallarta.
Stores such as Calvin Klein, Forever 21, Hugo Boss, Bath and Body Works, and Birkenstock, help you explore for high-end bargains. There’s even a MacStore where you can check out sales on Apple watches from the Apple Watch series.
The next stop should be Plaza Caracol or the Galerias Vallarta mall. Both centers will undoubtedly be hosting sale events on Black Friday, encompassing Mexican and International purchases.
A visit to the Old Town is a must. Pick up some ‘pick n’ mix’ at one of the last remaining Woolworths on earth! You can then head just across the street into LANS, where designer and luxury goods are plentiful.
Lastly, any trip to Puerto Vallarta would be incomplete without a visit to some flea markets, artisan stores, and the street traders. Remember to haggle! It’s a fun tradition, and if you’re good at it, you’ll save a lot.
The best Black Friday deals can support a local family, and you won’t have to worry about shipping delays when you pick up the bargains yourself.
In Puerto Vallarta, you’ll get the best deals ever that’ll make you go “Yay!”
But after all that shopping you deserve a rest. After a quick siesta in your luxury accommodation, you’ll still have the whole weekend to indulge in some online shopping.
You don’t want to miss out on any huge discounts online, and some retailers have their best Black Friday deals going on all weekend, even into the following week, with a Cyber Monday sale.
Garza Blanca has high-speed internet in every room, and even at the pools, so you will never miss out on any last-minute online deals.
Once online, you will have to separate the real bargains from the not-so-great discounts. Many of the “deals” available during big sales events are not great. Sometimes this is because the retailer has decided to raise the price ahead of time; other times, the discount turns out to be marginal after hidden shipping fees. Sifting through discounts can be a chore.
We recommend searching for last year’s popular Black Friday bargains, such as Hot Wheels, Lego sets, AirPods, Apple Watches, Amazon Echo devices, robot vacuums, and Samsung TVs.
We expect the best Black Friday 2021 deals to be on Apple’s latest devices, such as Airpods, and iPads. We also expect to see significant discounts on Amazon’s own devices, as well as bargains on toys and kitchen appliances.
Prime Day deals, the annual two-day mega sale when Prime members get exclusive access to some of the year’s best deals on everything, are also worth your time and money. Following its desire to keep the date close to Amazon’s anniversary, Prime Day 2022 is predicted for July. Another great month to save some money, and visit Puerto Vallarta!
Black Friday Without the Burnout
Life is great when you’ve bagged some bargains, and a day downtown in Puerto Vallarta will always make you smile. After you’ve spent some money, you can spend some time on your private balcony. You can relax by grabbing a cold beer or a margarita, while you gently swing in your hammock, gazing at the ocean.
And when you happen to glance over at your shopping bags, you’ll surely be smiling again.
