If you’re anything like me, Black Friday is my favorite shopping day of the year. It ’s when I start looking for deals on items that have been on my wishlist all year and when I get most of my Christmas shopping done.
What is Black Friday
Black Friday is the day after the US Thanksgiving holiday. It marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season in the US. It is said that it’s when shop owners started to turn a profit and in their accounting books, went from marking thier profits in red ink to black ink to show they were now in the positive.
And for us, it holds the promise of an amazing deal all the while scratching things off our Christmas list.
How to Find the Best Black Friday Deals
- Plan! Make a list and check it twice. I started using an excel spreadsheet to track who I have to get gifts for. I have one tab for immediate family members, one tab for friends and each of my son’s get one tab dedicated to their teachers and caregivers at their schools.
- Download the Flipp app on your phone. Many retailers will release their flyers with their Black Friday sales earlier in the week and you’ll have time to scope them out and see if you want to visit their store or order online.
- Sign up for Amazon Prime. I honestly could not live without Amazon Prime. I initially got it as a free trial and never ended up canceling it. It actually saves me so much in shipping, it’s worth the annual fee. With two toddlers around, I don’t get a lot of time to shop at the mall or in retail stores the way I used to. The free 1-2 day shipping has gotten me out of a bind on more than one occasion.
- Check to see if you’re getting the best deal on Amazon with camelcamelcamel. Just because it’s Black Friday, you want to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible. Camelcamelcamel will let you know the history of a product’s price so your if you should grab it or wait.
