How To Make Black Friday Work For You!
There are some amazing Black Friday Deals to be had, but with so many sales going on, it can get a little confusing. We often hear questions like: How can I know I’m getting the best deal? Where is the best place to shop? and When do the sales start? We’ve done all the research for you and put it in our Black Friday Database which you can check out HERE.
Did you know we have an app? We have a Black Friday database (a much easier way to navigate this Black Friday price comparison spreadsheet) and price comparisons for top products AND you can sign up for Black Friday deal alerts! Signing up for alerts will give you the best chance of scoring the most sought after deals.
Here are a few more tips to make your Black Friday go as smoothly as possible
Don’t wait to shop until the day after Thanksgiving
Most stores start their Black Friday sales several days before Thanksgiving, with several of them starting the weekend before. Additionally, some retailers will have Pre-Black Friday sales starting in early November. These sales don’t usually have the huge deals that are seen Thanksgiving week, but can be a good way to get your shopping out of the way early. Remember to check our Black Friday Database to see when stores are starting their sales.
Make a Black Friday Plan
It’s easy to get caught up in all the great deals and end up overspending. Check out our Ad Scans as well as our preview posts for Kohl’s, Walmart, Target, JCpenney, and Macy’s well before the sales start. Make a list of what items you are looking to buy, and where the best price is. When a sale goes live, be ready to add the items to your cart and check out.
Don’t assume that you’re getting a deal just because it’s in the Black Friday Ad
Some retailers will include items in their ads that are not actually on sale. Walmart and Target are notorious for doing this. If you’re looking for a deal, make sure to check to see what the regular price is before purchasing an item.
Check out online deals
When we think of Black Friday, we often think about the traditional long lines in the cold waiting to get into a store. Fortunately most stores offer the exact same deals online. Even better, those items usually go on sale on the store’s website several hours, or even days before you can score them in the store. Your days of waiting in long, freezing lines are over!
Remember to use those credits and send in rebates
Stores like Kohl’s will offer Kohl’s Cash as a reward for shopping with them, usually $15 for every $50 you spend. Other stores have their rewards programs also. Forgetting to use those is like throwing away cash. Also don’t forget to send in your mail-in rebates. Retailers will combine deep discounts with manufacture’s rebates to help you save big. Make sure to send those in asap.
