Black Friday has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the sales are over! There are still incredible deals to be found online and in-store if you know where to look. Whether you want to stay home and shop online or get out of the house with your family and buy some of your Christmas presents in person, we’ve got you covered with our Black Friday shopping tips and tricks guide.
Shopping online is a great way to avoid crowds of people waiting in long lines, getting pushed around by other shoppers, and dealing with aggressive salespeople. It’s also more likely that you will find the best deals on items like electronics and toys.
Check Store Policies
One of the best ways to find out what time stores open on Black Fridays is by checking their store policies. Many retailers have already shared when they will be opening, so make sure you check before you head out! You don’t want to end up spending hours in line outside a store only to find that it’s closed or doesn’t even sell the items you wanted.
Use Cashback Sites
Cashback sites are a great way to make your Black Friday shopping experience more enjoyable. Instead of spending hours searching for the best deals, you can simply visit these sites, do a little comparison shopping, and then wait for cash back in your account. What’s even better is that many of these sites will pay you to shop at your favorite stores. There’s really no reason not to use them!
Sign up for newsletters from stores you like or that are having a sale. Some stores offer exclusive promotions only to newsletter subscribers. You can also sign up for store alerts on your phone which will text you when something is on sale or when something new is available. This way you’ll never miss a good deal!
Follow Social Media Accounts
Follow Black Friday accounts on social media to get up-to-date information on deals, discounts, and how long certain items will be discounted. You can also follow Twitter handles like @blackfridaydeals or stores like Walmart @Walmart. You can even follow us on Twitter so you always know when we’re having great deals!
Set a Budget
To make sure you stick to your budget, set a limit on how much you are willing to spend. Calculate how much you have spent so far this month and divide it by the number of days in November. That will give you a rough estimate of how much you can spend each day. For example, if you’ve already spent $800 so far this month and there are 28 days left until Black Friday, then you could spend around $28 per day. Remember that Thanksgiving is a big holiday and may eat up some of your budgets; maybe don’t plan on spending any money until Black Friday.
Plan Your Route
In order to get the best deals, you’ll need to plan your route. Start by looking at store hours and make a list of stores you want to visit. Be sure to check store hours before heading out because some stores will open early while others will close early.
Next, figure out what time you want to start shopping. If you’re an early bird, head over first thing in the morning or at night when most people are home on Thanksgiving day. If you don’t mind waiting in line, it might be worth it to go mid-day after lunch. But if lines scare you, we recommend getting there right when the mall opens because lines are usually shorter then.
Don’t forget to grab food and coffee! And don’t forget cash too. Keep these tips in mind as Black Friday approaches!
