6 Tips to Make Your Black Friday a Shopping Success
Posted on Friday, November 17, 2017
Black Friday is one of the most exciting shopping days of the year. With only 31 days till Christmas and incredible deals, it’s no wonder this day can create a shopping frenzy! Follow these 6 tips to get what you want and truly feel successful this Black Friday.
Tip #1 Do your homework
Research Black Friday deals before you hit the road. Check out ads online or in the paper to find what places offer the best deals and what time those deals are offered. Download apps or clip coupons that may offer additional discounts.
Tip #2 Plan your attack
Each store has a slightly different approach to Black Friday deals. Map out the stores you plan to visit by opening time, specific times they offer the best price for what you are looking for and location. Cutting down on travel time will keep you in the stores and checking off that list!
Tip #3 Lists and Budgets
Decide ahead of time what you plan to purchase and how much you plan to spend on this shopping trip. With so many deals popping up throughout the day it might be easy to get carried away and come home with more than you planned. Even worse come home with bags full of nothing you had planned but too good of a deal to pass up.
Tip #4 Start Early
The early bird gets the worm especially during Black Friday. There is only so much stock a store can hold and doorbuster sales start early so make sure you’re there when the doors open or even before. The best deals fly off the shelf first so grab a latte and get in line!
Tip #5 Play it Safe
It was mentioned earlier that Black Friday creates quite a frenzy. Hundreds of sleep deprived shoppers ready to fill their carts and run you over with them if you get in the way. Stay calm, smile and be courteous. No deal is worth compromising good principles.
Tip #6 Stay Inside
Sometimes the best deals are just a website away. You may save yourself time and money if the deal your looking for can be purchased with just a click of a button. There’s nothing like shopping Black Friday specials while sitting on the beach outside your 30a vacation rental with your iPad in one hand and drink in the other.
