If someone asks me about the best day of the year for shopping then my answer would definitely be the Black Friday. You can easily find huge sales, special discounts and bundle packages.
If you search carefully you will be overwhelmed by the deals you see in the stores. Because everyone is searching for discounts and there are a lot of bargain hunters so it is overall a challenging day for buyers.
Here are some of the best tips to find the best deals on this huge discounts day.
1. Check out the Ads And the Apps
Do check your Thanksgiving Day newspaper as it will be stuffed with ads, coupons, and circulars. This will be the main source for Black Friday savings while shopping in your local area. Many stores offer time-specific deals so plan the shopping time accordingly. Keep a close eye on early bird sales and doorbusters.
There are many Android and iOS apps out there to make shopping for the best deals on Black Friday even easier.
2. Do Your Research Well Before Friday
Do your research before the Friday especially if you are looking to buy a big-ticket item. If the quality of the product is bad then it doesn’t matter how much discount is being offered on it. So do your product research as well as the place where you will get the best deal.
3. Compare Prices
Different stores offer a different amount of discount. So when you have decided to buy a particular product then compare the prices. See how much discount is being offered by different stores. Also, see the bundle offers and shipping discounts. For electronic devices see if they are offering the accessories or not. Sometimes you get the devices but you have to pay for the accessories.
4. Look for Early-Bird Shopper Discounts
Normally it is assumed the early-bird shoppers get all the best deals from a store but now many stores offer discounts at different times. Like some stores open on Thanksgiving, there are some doorbusters and there are some stores which open at midnight.
So keep an eye on local newspapers and magazines for best deals and their time of happening.
5. Plan Where You Want to Shop
If you want to grab the best deal then you have to properly plan your shopping trip. Once you have done all the research, prioritize the stores according to the best deals. If you have finalized the deals from different stores then see the map, parking information and the timings of the sale. Carefully plan all this and be proactive. Take the fastest route and be early.
6. Bring the Ads
Many stores offer a guaranteed low price but they might ask you for the proof. So if you see an ad on the internet save it by taking a screenshot. If you see a great deal in a newspaper or magazine then take those ads along with you and present them where needed.
