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 tomorrow and it’s called Buen Fin.
Buen Fin — which is short for El Buen Fin de Semana “the good weekend” — is Mexico’s version of Black Friday. You can find sales on goods and services throughout the country. You’ll also find deals online, so there’s no reason to go out if you don’t want to.
As the name would imply, Buen Fin traditionally only lasts for a weekend (plus a day or two), but as everyone on the planet is already fully aware, 2020 is a year of unprecedented events. This year Buen Fin is scheduled to last for 12 days!
I wish weekends lasted that long back when I was a member of the working class.
Buen Fin 2020: November 9 – 20
This is a great time to save on everything from electronics to vacations.
If you live in Mexico, you might also want to check your local government’s website or social media accounts. Many government agencies offer Buen Fin discounts on things like driver’s license renewals and past due fines and taxes.
Well, that’s it for now. It’s a beautiful Sunday morning here in the Riviera Maya and the beach is calling my name. Hasta luego.
