Best Black Friday Tips and Tricks



Thanksgiving is approaching. This also means everyone’s favorite sales day of the year is approaching as well. Black Friday is celebrated the Friday after Thanksgiving and is a day when everyone is trying to score the best deals to get their holiday shopping started. Stores tend to have their best deals and people begin flooding the stores at midnight. Be prepared and get prepped with our tips and tricks to help you survive the Black Friday madness.

Not Everything is a Deal!
One thing that throws most people off is the misinformation that everything seen sold on Black Friday is a deal. That is not true and, unfortunately, not everything is a steal. Make sure to check the original price tag before purchasing anything. You might think you are getting a deal but in reality, you can get that “deal” on a normal day. If you’re questioning the price and the sale, try searching for the item online with a data-enabled smart phone.

Know the Return Policy
Another important thing to keep in mind when Black Friday shopping is knowing the return policy. This is so important to know because if you are buying for the holidays you want to make sure the person has enough time to return it if they don’t like the gift or if it doesn’t fit. As an example, Forever 21 (a popular clothing retail store), has a 21 day return policy, making it very difficult, if not impossible, to return after the holidays.  

Go with Family or Friends and Have a Plan
Black Friday shopping tends to get crazy and messy. Going with a group of people will ensure that you not only safe but having a great time. Grab your friends and go! Black Friday is not the day to just walk aimlessly throughout the mall or store. Have a plan and prioritize where you are going. Map out where you need/ want to go and follow it to a tee to ensure safe and smarty shopping.

Make a Budget
Many people go into Black Friday thinking they are getting all the deals and do not plan out how much they are spending. That is only how you will end up spending more in the long run. Make a budget and stick to it. This will ensure you do not overspend and prioritize what you should buy now or what can wait.

Online Shop
Lastly, if the idea of crowds and malls scare you, you can always online shop. A lot of the stores run the same deals online. So, cuddle up on the couch and shop away in the comfort of your own sunroom.
