Arturo Barrantes, a finance expert who hates seeing bad offers online, built a Black Friday Calculator using Omni Calculator’s platform. His tool looks at the 9 most common discounts to sort genuine deals from bad ones.
The Black Friday Calculator is a free tool that is intuitive to use. The user simply chooses the deal type, the item's original price, and the tax and shipping cost (if needed). Then, it shows the costs and savings and suggests whether a deal is worth considering. The tool includes nine different types of deals: from the popular % off, through 2 for 1 or 3 for 2 offers, to common double and triple discounts, to cover every possible scenario.
Some deals are just math traps designed by shops. Nobody wants to do the calculations when a super-mega-limited offer appears. That’s why I built this tool to help you make better decisions under pressure.
