5 Ways To Make The Most Out Of Black Friday Sales

Amidst the retail madness that is Black Friday, we have some great tips for you, plus ways you can pick up bargains all month long!

For those readers who are a little unsure as to what Black Friday is, and how it came to be, let us elaborate:

What Is Black Friday?

Black Friday originated in the U.S. where it has always marked the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, although the name predates the shopping spectacular we know it to be. The term was initially used in Philadelphia to describe the disruptive vehicular and pedestrian traffic that took place upon the day following Thanksgiving. As usage of the moniker spread so too did the popular explanation that this day defined the period when retailers made enough profit to go from being "in the red", to being "in the black".

Black Friday falls on the Friday following Thanksgiving (which is always the fourth Thursday of November and happens to be November 24th this year) and historically this is when some of the best deals offering the most saving for consumers can be found.

Top Tips For Making The Most Of Black Friday:

1. Social Media

Sign up for emails subscriptions. Follow retailers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. A good number of retailers will release details of their offers on these platforms before they appear to the general public so you may just be getting a leg up by doing this.

2. Online Shopping

If you aren't already set up with an account online for the retailers you want to buy from, get your account set up now before the rush of Black Friday. Don't take any chances that your items will be sold out by the time you're ready to do your online checkout. Be prepared!

3. Pre-Black Friday Offers!

4. Be Specific

Make a list of what you want to accomplish in order of importance. Make your plan of attack from there. Stick with a plan, it's better than "winging it" and coming home empty-handed.
If shopping online is your go-to, remember to target your "must have" items first. The reason we suggest this is that sites may crash on the day due to the quantity of consumers. If this happens, move on to the next item on your list, and come back if you must.

5. Do Your Homework

If you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail. The most valuable tip we can offer is to do your homework. Check the current, pre-sale prices of the items you want to purchase. Do it now so that you will be sure you are getting the best deal you can by waiting to buy on Black Friday. Be sure you are buying the item that most closely serves your needs, not just the one that gives you the biggest saving. Check online reviews and all specifications prior to your purchase. Also, research the opening and closing times of stores you wish to visit so you can plan your day accordingly.

Happy bargain hunting!
