Black Friday – Getting The Best Shopping Deals

14 November 2006

For those of you who enjoy getting a jump on the Christmas shopping season, you may have heard of “Black Friday” – the day after Thanksgiving, and the first day of the Christmas shopping season. It’s also a day where stores offer huge discounts on a few items to draw customers in – and often don’t have enough in stock for everyone who wants one. Those who prepare get the best rewards – and over at Personal Finance Advice, the tricks of the trade are revealed. You’ll have to check the fine print, but using a couple of technicalities you can run rings around the other shoppers you’re competing with. And it turns out there are a lot of web sites keeping track of the deals so you don’t have to. Rather than look in the newspaper, you can get your information a lot faster and more efficiently online. Try Black Friday Ads, a site that collects all the different promotions in one place. There’s a set of forums dedicated to tipping each other off to the deals in advance here. And there’s another site with about 2500 different sales that you can see here. Do your homework and you should be able to be the one who goes out of the store with the best bargain. And remember that if you’re spending money on something you weren’t going to buy anyway – you haven’t saved money, you’ve wasted it.
