Snagging those Black Friday deals can be sweet, but navigating the crowds and the mad rush for super-hot items at rock-bottom prices can be daunting. However, here are a few tips we recommend to help you get through Black Friday unscathed and with a load of bargains.
Start Shopping Early
There are many retailers that offer Black Friday deals a few days ahead of the official post-Thanksgiving day release. Check your ads or go online to explore which stores are willing to offer those bargains a bit earlier, which can help you snag the best items without having to hurdle over other shoppers. Some stores even offer deals as early as the Monday prior to Black Friday.
Let Technology Lead You to Deals
There are apps and websites that can help you save time by finding the best deals for you. dealnews.com, for example, broadcasts highlights of top deals as the big day approaches. You can also allow apps to send you notifications as hot items you are looking for such as tablets, TVs and home appliances become available.
Commit to High-End Purchases
Certain items such as jewelry, winter apparel and most children’s toys are often better purchases after Black Friday. Trends in big box retail stores tend to lean towards offering big savings on electronic gadgets, gaming consoles, and high dollar appliances. Remember, Black Friday is not the end-all shopping experience, and other deals will surface before the holidays.
Maximize on Coupons
Quite a few retailers that place those splashy advertisements in the paper or in your mailbox often add some very generous coupons that can help you maximize your savings. They will also advertise special doorbuster deals that can help you save as much as 50 percent off of certain items even days before Black Friday. However, be sure to read the fine print on your promotions to be sure you’re getting the best deals.
