Is Black Friday the best day of the year to snag a bargain?
In most instances, probably not, says the Wall Street Journal.
In an Oct. 8 story, the Journal concluded that the so-called "Door Buster" deals may truly be a deal -- if you are among the first few to snag them. But for most items, the lowest prices were not found on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
The Journal study tracked prices on all sorts of items -- from Barbie dolls to Citizen watches. Most often, the best deals do not occur on Black Friday at all, but throughout the year.
So unless you're among those who get an adrenaline rush from the Black Friday experience, you might be better off sleeping in.
