Black Friday is here for another year and at Isostopy we do not want you to miss the best offers on virtual reality devices, that’s why we have developed this guide with the best tips for you to get great deals without subsequent surprises, so that your purchase be safe and effective.
Whether in their physical spaces or online, during this weekend the big brands will offer succulent discounts. But be careful, not all are real. First of all, check if the product you are going to buy has VAT included in the price. The final price could be much higher so this is an important aspect to consider. Also remember to look at the shipping costs, something that can raise the final price of the product we want to buy, since this cost can be double or even triple if we buy from one or the other store.
En segundo lugar, ten en cuenta la garantía del producto, especialmente si estás comprando a un vendedor extracomunitario. Recuerda que la Ley General para la Defensa de los Consumidores contempla que el plazo para reclamar la reparación o sustitución de un producto es de dos años, aunque a partir de los seis meses desde la compra del producto, es responsabilidad del consumidor demostrar que el defecto del producto es de origen.
When you buy something online you have 14 days to regret it. They have to pay you back what you paid and you don’t owe them any explanation.
Also don’t forget to check the return terms; It is very important to know how much time you have to return the product in case it does not convince you when you start using it. If you buy online, remember the golden rule that the OCU gives us: “When you buy something online you have 14 days to repent. They have to pay you back what you paid and you don’t owe them any explanation. ”
Finally, it is important to keep the transaction receipt, details of the web page, copies of the e-mails sent and received from the provider, or screenshots of the page where the transaction is confirmed. This ensures that we can safely claim in the event of a scam.
When to buy
The great competition unleashed by Black Friday has made large companies go beyond Friday, November 24 when launching their aggressive sales campaign, extending it in most cases for several days, but when will we find the best offers in the different stores?
Most stores will start presenting specific offers on some of their products from Monday, November 20. But it will be at 00:01 on Friday the 24th when the madness breaks out. From that moment and until midnight on the following Monday, or Cybermonday, we can find great discounts and flash offers in the electronics sections of online stores such as Amazon, Ebay, Aliexpress, PC Components and of course in physical stores such as Media Markt, Apple or El Corte Inglés, so we recommend that you wait until that moment because the products that these days you see already on sale may be purchased at an even better price.
VR offer star on this Black Friday
Before talking about the most interesting offers in VR glasses and 360 cameras, we have to highlight the great deal of this Black Friday. And is that from November 17 to 27 you can buy a pack that includes PlayStation VR with PlayStation Camera, the PS VR Worlds game and an additional title to choose between Gran Turismo Sport and Skyrim VR, for 299 euros, that is, € 100 cheaper from its original price. If you had in mind to buy the most powerful VR console on the market, do not hesitate: this is the time.
