Story 1:  These Types of Products Will Have the Deepest Deals on Black Friday

What type of stuff should you be looking to buy on Black Friday?  Well, hopefully stuff you actually NEED.  But here’s a little guidance.

An annual study looks at advertised Black Friday prices at a bunch of stores, and compares them to how much you’d normally pay if you bought the same product on Amazon.  Here are nine categories, and the types of discounts you might see . . .

  1. Consumer packaged goods. That’s stuff you use up and rebuy a lot, like food, drinks, and household products.  Up to 43% cheaper than Amazon.
  2. Books, movies, and music. Also up to 43% cheaper on Black Friday.
  3. Clothing and accessories, 36%.
  4. Toys, 36%.
  5. Video games, 34%. Only the games, not the newest consoles that just came out.
  6. Furniture, 31%.
  7. Appliances, 28%.
  8. Random gadgets and electronics, 25%.
  9. Computers and phones, 24%.

Story 2:  Oxford English Dictionary Couldn’t Pick Just One Single “Word of the Year”

How can one word sum up THE craziest year in our lifetime?  The people at Oxford English Dictionary say . . . it can’t.

The editors at the Oxford English Dictionary say that when they were deciding on their annual pick for Word of the Year, quote, “It quickly became apparent that 2020 is not a year that could neatly be accommodated in one single word of the year.”

So instead, they picked dozens of words that sum up, quote, “the phenomenal breadth of language change and development over the year.”

Those words include:  COVID-19 . . . work-from-home . . . lockdown . . . support bubbles . . . essential workers . . . furlough . . . Black Lives Matter . . . mail-in . . . superspreader . . . social distancing . . . QAnon . . . and impeachment.
