But are consumers really saving money on Black Friday?

A report from Vancity credit union released Monday said that large retailers actually hike prices on a number of products leading up to U.S. Thanksgiving, only to drop them on Black Friday itself.

Vancity also noted that major retailers advertise "door-crashers" by lowering prices on some highly-advertised products, while raising prices on others.

UPDATE: Nov. 26 — Best Buy and Future Shop told The Huffington Post Canada that they do not engage in these practices.
