How To Get The Best Deals On Black Friday


After all the turkey is enjoyed, the rush for the Christmas season starts. One of the biggest kick-offs to the season is Black Friday shopping. Before you head out into the cold to stand in line for your desired purchases, make sure you are prepared on how to get the best out of the big day with these tips:

1. Research. Know exactly what you are wanting to buy and the store hours or online shopping when the deals go live. This way, you can go in with a plan and make sure you get what you want. Many stores are now open before Black Friday. As you remember last year a lot of retailers also offered early sales online.

SEARCH FOR BLACK FRIDAY DEALS – Just type in the item your looking for a deal on in the box below!

2. Add me as your Personal Shopper here and I can help you for FREE! That’s what I do 🙂 I can send you exclusive offers, coupons and more! Be prepared for a “Plan B”. It would be highly lucky and unlikely for you to get everything you want, so make sure you have other gifts in mind if the ones your wrote down do not work out. This will help you avoid super disappointment. I do most of my Black Friday shopping online. Not only can I avoid the crowds but you can often score better deals online then in the stores.3. Use social media. Join our Personal Shopper here. This is another tool we offer to you to check out the deals you can score. “Like” your favorite brands, products and stores way before Black Friday so you can be in the know as the day approaches. Social media is a powerful tool and many companies know this. They will drop hints of even full ads well before Black Friday to their fans.4. Bring your ads and store policy with you. This way, if there is a discrepancy between you and the store, you will have the ad and policy to back you up. Keep in mind the quantity limits and price matching policy is another great way to save but not always possible during Black Friday sales. You will also notice that some of the “better” deals are prior to Black Friday.5. Don’t fall for stores pushing you to sign up for their credit cards to save and extra percentage off. These will leave you paying for your gifts until Easter and will encourage you to spend outside your budget. Planning ahead and making a shopping list will help you stay with in your budget.

6. Bring cash. This way, you will be able to set a limit for yourself in total and on certain items like I mentioned above. Leave the cards at home for Cyber Monday. It is too easy to get caught up in the excitement and just spend, spend, spend. Well, that defeats all your hard work of saving.

7. Make sure you really want the early bird deals. Don’t just go for the thrill. Many times, some of the best deals are the mid-morning deals. These are the ones you will find after 9 am. If your a hard core Black Friday Shopper and plan to spend your nights outside at Best Buy dress warm and take some snacks, yo will probably be there for a while 🙂

8. Be sure to hang “like” Simplee Thrifty’s Facebook Page and you will get notified of all the deals in-store and online.

9. Amazon is one of my favorite places to score deals for the holidays!

    • I love Black Friday–so many great deals to be had! You definitely do have to do it right though. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Black Friday shopping was always a tradition I had with my mom growing up. Now I’ve gotten lazy and do most of my Black Friday shopping online. But online shopping also prevents me from adding more items to my cart just because they’re a great deal!
