Halloween came and went and now Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The holidays are creeping up fast. It’s time to get started on holiday shopping! Here are tips from expert bargain hunters at TechBargains.com and PlanetBargains.com on how to maximize your savings this Black Friday.
4 Ways to Score the Best Deals this Black Friday
- Make it Social: Retailers will be shouting their sales from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. In recent years stores like Radio Shack and Toys R Us have offered exclusive savings to shoppers who checked-in on Four Square. To get the scoop on the best deals be sure you are following your favorite brands.
- Start Shopping Before Friday: Each year so-called Black Friday deals start popping up earlier and earlier. Gone are the days of waking up at 6 a.m. on Friday to start shopping. Many of the best sales actually become live at midnight, just hours after you finish turkey dinner. If you want to get the best shot at the deals start shopping before midnight.
- Skip The Stores By Shopping Online: While others burn gas driving store to store, why not stay in your pajamas, save time and shop from home? You can find most in-store deals available online. Comparison shop and find the lowest prices by visiting deal sites. TechBargains.com highlights the best deals and coupon codes on all consumer electronics including televisions, e-readers, tablets, cameras and more. Their international team of bargain hunters update the website around the clock to make sure you never miss a deal. Not looking for tech? PlanetBargains.com features the best deals on toys, home décor and clothing from your favorite stores like Gap, Macy’s, Eddie Bauer, North Face and many more. You can expect retailers to offer free shipping so the package is delivered right to your front door.
- Make a List & Check It Twice: You know exactly what you want, but retailers are banking on you filling up a cart with products you never intended on buying. You never knew you needed the scarf with matching socks until it was marked ‘buy one, get one half off.’ Before you know it you are at check out paying well over what you budgeted. Your best bet is to make a list and stick to it. Your wallet will thank you.
