What Black Friday Means
When we talk about Black Friday sales, we refer to the special time of saving money. This usually takes places on the day after the U.S Thanksgiving holiday.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s just limited to the U.S. With the increasing popularity of Black Friday, many countries have adopted this special sale.
The Must-Knows of Black Friday
1) Black Friday isn’t The Only Sale Date, So Don’t Worry!
Saving money on your purchases sounds really good, but sometimes in the moment, people might get carried away. So, before you make your purchase, review your shopping cart.
If you are even more frugal and love saving money, make a list of items that you specifically want to buy and ensure it fits your budget.
2) Sign Up for Newsletters
When you sign up for newsletters, you usually will receive discount codes from retailers. This incentive is not just limited to Black Friday, but you may be able to stack it on your order giving you the ultimate way of saving money.
Oh, just a little heads up, some companies tend to send out emails regularly. It might be a good idea to make a separate email account to avoid spam.
3) Be the Early Bird
You know how that saying goes, “The early bird gets the worm?”, well it also applies to shopping on Black Friday. Many retailers roll out sales a couple days in advance so keep your tabs on the stores you want to buy stuff from
Retailers to Shop From:
Before I list a couple retailers worth checking out, I want to say that this list is not exhaustive! These are some of the stores I think have good deals.
Looking for electronics? Well, you might be interested in taking a quick glance at Best Buy on Black Friday sales. They offer wide deals on different brands, such as Apple, Beats, Samsung, and more.
They also roll out some pre-Black Friday deals as well. So, it’s definitely a smart way on saving money
Amazon is a major retailer that you can access online. They have almost everything you can think of and also allow people to access some early deals on Black Friday sales.
Other than saving money, Amazon also offers really good customer service. In other words, you don’t have to worry about your purchases because Amazon has your back!
Macy is well known for its sales, whatever time it is. However, on Black Friday, they drop their prices even more. With multiple stores across the States, you can pop in and take a look at the different kinds of stuff they have.
Walmart is pretty huge; it has a lot of stuff similar to Amazon. However, take this one with caution as there are many horrors stories from people that shop on this day.
Some people may be surprised to find Zara on this list. They don’t have a lot of sales, but when they do, it’s definitely worth buying stuff. For the price and quality, you can’t go wrong from shopping here on Black Friday.
Online or In-Person?
When it comes to Black Friday, some people may wonder whether they should go in person to shop or just surf the web and go that route.
Personally, I think it’s worth buying whatever you need online. You’ll be saving money the same way as you do in person, but it’ll be more convenient and stress free!
