Majority of Drone Deals Aren’t Deals Actually
A lot of companies would deceive consumers and make them believe that the original price was far higher than the current prices of drones. In a lot of cases, the price difference isn’t that high and majority of people would make their purchases on Black Friday, thinking they have made a bargain when in reality they have not. However, the popularity of drones is soaring and better deals on drones could be upcoming.
Customers Won’t Make Good Decisions
A lot of customers would be forced to make fast decisions, ultimately leading to making a wrong choice. A lot of people weren’t thinking of buying drones actually, but seeing the various “deals” around, they would want to take advantage of these and rush into buying these drones.
It is very tempting to grab a deal as fast as possible, but drones are quite expensive gadgets and it is advisable to take one’s time when making a choice. A big mistake most people make is that they see a model of a drone on sale and they rush to buy it, not knowing that there are various models of drones that are far better choices than that particular model.
Customers Might Be Buying an Old Model
Most model of drones that are available for sale during Black Friday are usually models that have been on the market for very long. In a bid to quickly have all these models sold, they are offered for sale during Black Friday, making them attractive to customers who might have not even taken a look at them during normal periods. Most of the models available for sale have upgraded versions that are out already or would be out soon.
A prime example of this is the DJI Phantom 2. There might be very good sales available on the Phantom 2, but the Phantom 3 is far better than the Phantom 2. And the capabilities of the Phantom 3 blow away that of the Phantom 2.
