Black Friday, awaited with great enthusiasm by both shoppers and sellers, is considered the event that opens the Christmas shopping season. It takes place every year on the first Friday that follows the Thanksgiving Day. Even though Black Friday 2014 is set on November 28, if you are a bargain hunter you should start writing your wishlist. Most retailers have already begun to make figures and prepare the lists with toys, clothes, kitchen appliances, accessories, jewelries, and electronics at discounted prices so that no member of the family is forgotten. Everyone can find something to best suit his taste and needs.
If you prefer to skip the long queues, noisy crowds and full parking lots, then go for online shopping and sit comfortable in the front of your computer while browsing the Black Friday hot deals. What should online shoppers expect for this year? Here are several tips.
Online stores with eye-popping deals
Amazon reached the top of sales constantly in the last four years so, keeping an eye on them is mandatory. Remember that best deals are selling out quickly. Newegg is chased by tech lovers and savvy consumers due to their online rebates for a long list of electronics. It is said that last year the price for one of the Samsung HDTV model was cut down even more than on the manufacturer’s website. As usually, the hottest deals from Best buy are related to cheap Android tablets and laptops, along with high rated brands of large scale HDTVs. Last Black Friday, Walmart beat Amazon’s offer for Blu-ray disc movies, and no doubt they will come again with a new and large selection of titles sold at affordable prices. Also, keep in mind to visit eBay website, which remains one of the most popular and loved online store.
Ads and apps
Many retailers start to publish the offers for Black Day early in November on their websites (some of them begin by the end of October). Watch over the online ads and use iOS apps to better organize and maximize your savings. Do not forget to update your mailing and billing addresses and sign up for alerts, newsletters, and loyalty programs.
The wishlist and Internet research
Make a list with the desired items in advance. Although big ticket items bring much more dollar savings compared to a pair of shoes for example, you have to decide what you really need to avoid unnecessary shopping and spending all your money.
A bit of internet research before Black Friday is any shopper’s best bet. You can compare prices, learn about the features of the goods listed for sale, collect details about the shipping costs and look over the store’s return policy carefully. Follow the retailers on Twitter or give “like” on their Facebook page to source special discounts and incentives. Be aware that you just cannot hit all the early bird specials however, since there is so much information at one click distance, it is worth trying.
