Even for the most veteran shoppers, Black Friday can be overwhelming. The savviest have learned that going without a game plan can be disastrous. Those with no list, no plan and no reinforcements are bound to fail. Those are the people who are tired, frustrated and sitting on a bench at the end of the day. If you dont want to be one of them, follow these tips for a successful Black Friday.
In recent years, it has become easier to plan your Black Friday shopping because of the Internet. It is now fairly common for some retailers’ Black Friday ads to be leaked online long before Black Friday.
Check websites like BFADS.NET and BLACKFRIDAY.INFO to view actual scans of the ads and find out what will be on sale. Remember that many of the super hot “doorbuster” deals come in limited quantities, and you may have to line up well in advance to score the bargain.
In recent years, many retailers like Best Buy have started a ticket system on Black Friday, handing out tickets to those waiting in line for the hottest deals before the store opens.
Once you figure out which stores you want to hit, be sure you sign up for those companies e-mail newsletter lists online. Many of them will send additional coupons or savings passes to subscribers in the days leading up to the weekend.
Or check wow-coupons.com (click on retail) to look for printable coupons that might be available.
Good luck, be safe and happy hunting!!
