Save Money in Mexico by Shopping During Buen Fin

As a thrifty retiree, I’m always looking for opportunities to save money — especially on big ticket items like electronics and appliances. One of those opportunities begins Friday and it’s called Buen Fin.

Buen Fin is Mexico’s version of Black Friday, but unlike Black Friday which only lasts one day, Buen Fin offers four days of discounted merchandise. These savings extend to online shopping as well, so there’s no need to even leave your house.

This Year, Buen Fin is November 15-18

Some local government agencies will also participate in Buen Fin and offer discounts of up to 50% on past due fines and/or taxes. Now that’s a deal!

  1. Hey Paul!
    Does Buen Fin include vacation discounts or just goods?

    Nice article. Do you have a link to your blog on Huatulco? We are looking at going next January and I can’t seem to find that info. Thanks!

  3. Hey Paul?? We won’t be there until February. Can you furnish our condo for us? We’ll pay you back when we get there:)

    Paul and Linda, a thought for a post…shopping on U.S. retail sites like Amazon and the procedure for getting those goods to Mexico? I find your blog to be so helpful! Many thanks.

  5. We furnished our apartment last year at Buen Fin: 40% off furniture, 25% off appliances, and more. Many retailers have deals the entire week. It’s worth getting out for!

  6. I really loved this article! It gave me some new insights I never really thought about before.
