Black Friday & Co .: Helpful or just annoying? Tell us your opinion

Black Friday is actually an American phenomenon.

Black Friday is now improperly known all over the world and stands for one thing above all: discounts.

In Germany, too, many companies advertise a whole week before Black Friday with a lot of offers. Everyone wants to have their own event. No matter if Cyberweek, Pre-Black-Friday or any weekend special offers: everyone wants a part of the big shopping cake for themselves.
