How to Make the Most Out of Black Friday Sales
Posted on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018 at 7:00 am
What once was a somewhat limited, three-day sale that began the day after Thanksgiving has grown! Today, there are Thanksgiving Day sales, Black Friday weekend sales, Cyber Monday sales, and a bunch of other sales spread out over that week. Here is how to make the most of the Black Friday Sales.
Do Your Research
Start by figuring out what you need to purchase. Make a list of the things you want to buy family members as holiday gifts.
Do you need to replace appliances, upgrade computers, or do home repairs? Add that to your list as well.
Next, visit the websites of the stores you think will have what you want to buy. Compare prices. Make notes on your existing list that clearly states which store to get what item from. Doing so will help streamline your shopping during the busiest sales of the year.
There will very likely be people who decide to camp outside the stores the night before the sales begin. They do this because the first people to enter the store have the best chance of getting to the things they want to buy.
Not everyone feels the need to be that extreme about Black Friday shopping, though. Instead, people will arrive at the stores as early in the day as possible. The doorbuster items will sell quickly. Those who start shopping in the afternoon risk missing out.
Bring a Friend
It simply isn’t possible for you to cover the entire store all by yourself. The best way to handle this is to bring a friend with you. Take the time to divide up the shopping list before you go. That way, one of you can hit the toy aisles, while another heads to electronics.
This same strategy can be used for online Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. A team can visit more store’s websites, in a shorter amount of time, than one person can.
