Are you ready for Black Friday? I’m sharing all of my tips for Black Friday shopping in order to help you get the best deals this year.

Many stores offer price matching on their products. They would rather that you purchase a product in their store instead of somewhere else. because of this, they will often offer to give you a discounted price on an item, when someone else is advertising that product for less. You’ll have to prove the sale price to the store employee by bringing in the ad. This saves you a lot of time, energy and legwork, since you can shop for practically everything at your favorite store instead of running all over town.

You can score some great deals this way on Black Friday. if a store doesn’t have a particular product on a Black Friday sale, then they are more likely to have that product in stock. You can get some great secret deals this way. While everyone is flooding the other store that advertised a deal, you can quietly get the same deal somewhere else with little hassle.

One drawback, is that many stores have special rules on Black Friday, and the normal price matching policy may be affected. If that happens, you won’t be able to price match using a competitor’s ad during any Black Friday events. For example, last year, Toys R Us stated that it would not be price matching on Black Friday.

The best way to approach a price matching strategy on Black Friday is to find out the store policy ahead of time. Usually this will be printed somewhere on the Black Friday ad, but you may just have to call your local store ahead of time to find out. If your store does allow price matching on Black Friday, then the next step will be to gather up all of your Black Friday store ads.

Keep in mind that most stores won’t honor Internet deals in their retail stores, even if the online deal is on their own website.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
