We look at our Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, as well as some fun facts about why we all love bargain hunting!

Let’s face it, most of us enjoy a bit of retail therapy. After all, a new pair of shoes or half-dozen bottles of wine can make any bad week seem a little better. And if you’re in the mood for the ultimate retail therapy session, welcome to Black Friday week!

But what exactly is it about finding these timely specials we find so exhilarating? Is it as simple as saving a few dollars for the next shopping fix? Or is there something more primal about stumbling on that too-good-to-be-true deal?

We take a quick peek into the psychology of why we love a bargain and look at our exciting Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales!

Bargain and again

Of course, we all love saving a dollar a two. But it turns out that for many of us there’s more to bargain hunting than just conserving those pennies while still landing the items of our dreams.

It’s related to evolution and our roots as hunters and gatherers. According to the BBC, it’s the modern equivalent of “the excitable tension our ancestors felt when on the tail of prey they were hunting for dinner.” Because we don’t have as much foraging for food or territory to do anymore, other pursuits have filled the void.

And as indicated by Nielson, the search to find those elusive must-have items in the best form possible (in other words, ‘cheaper’) comes back to the simple idea of “the thrill of the chase.”

Indeed, keen-eyed spear throwers of the past have been replaced by precise and purposeful mouse-clickers.
