Did you know that we get an extra week of shopping this year? But that won’t stop our super shoppers from heading out for all those doorbusters on Black Friday! Here are some black Friday shopping tips to help you maximize your savings!

  • Create a Shopping List (focus on the items you really want)
  • Set a budget and carry cash
  • Compare prices before you head out and products
    • Start now online- compare Black Friday ads and also retailers’ regular websites. 
    • If the product is bad, just cause you got it cheap deal doesn’t make it a good deal. 
    • Focus on bottom-line prices, not discounts. 
  • Price Match when you can 
    • Many retailers offer price matching to online and in store pricing, but make sure to consider that the item almost always has to be an exact match and secondly, the product has to be in stock.
  • Check the original price tag, not the discounted price.
  • Advanced Social Media Deals
    • sign up for email
    • like your favorite store on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest
  • Take Advantage of  Special Offers (early bird/night owl specials)
    • Buy online/pickup in store
    • Free Shipping on out of stock merchandise
    • faster delivery of online orders
  • Know store policy (always get gift receipt)
    • Some stores are starting to charge a restocking fee and closing the return window. 
  • Get appy
    • download your favorite apps to compare prices while shopping. 
    • Download Flipp App – This will allow you to carry all the ads on your smartphone and compare the best prices. 
  • Check the online price (retailers are offering same deals online)
    • I add in the Amazon links to many of my Top Black Friday Deals because first off I love Amazon.com shopping. It’s so easy to just shop in my pajamas on Black Friday instead of heading out in the freezing cold to fight people for deals. Plus Amazon loves to drop their prices as low as Black Friday prices some of the time!  I get FREE SHIPPING as well with most orders over $25 with super saver shipping OR free 2-day shipping with Amazon prime (you can get a FREE 30 day trial here and score free shipping all through the holidays.)
    • The second reason I added in the Amazon links is so you can read the reviews of each item.
    • The third reason is that I have found that many of the current Amazon prices will BEAT Black Friday prices even now! So you can grab them at rock bottom low prices right now.
