Don’t Miss Mexico’s Biggest Sales Event of the Year
Kickoff your holiday shopping with El Buen Fin, Mexico’s biggest sales event of the year!
Every November, an estimated 70% of Mexicans shop during El Buen Fin, making it the country’s biggest annual retail event.
Like Black Friday sales in the U.S. and Boxing Day sales in Canada and the U.K., El Buen Fin is a nationwide event in Mexico, with sales happening all over the country.
With discounts on thousands of products and services, including housewares, appliances, clothing, jewelry, and electronics, El Buen Fin is the perfect time to send money to family and friends in Mexico.
El Buen Fin 2021 runs November 10 – 16, 2021.
Literally translated as “The Good Weekend,” El Buen Fin was launched in 2011 by the Mexican government as a way to stimulate Mexico’s economy, to kickoff Mexico’s holiday shopping season and to compete with the U.S.’s famous Black Friday sales (the sales period following U.S. Thanksgiving, at the end of November).
El Buen Fin takes place in mid-November, often ending on Revolution Day, November 20, a national holiday in Mexico celebrating the start of the Mexican Revolution in 1910.
