So it was black Friday and after almost 4+ years of stay in Monterrey, Mexico, I decided to check out Black Friday deals at McAllen US, which is around 3 hours drive from here. The decision was sudden and after a lot of thoughts, we finalized to leave on Friday morning.
Started our trip around 3:30 AM and reached the border around 6:30 AM. I used the toll roads and it was under repair in almost 3 areas which delayed the trip. The border was empty, partly because of Trump and partly because of “Buen Fin”, which is a similar promotion as black Friday in Mexico, one week before Black Friday.
Below are the timeline and route I took on the day.
The deals were pretty good if you compare prices in Monterrey.
