As you can see, there are tons of great deals for Black Friday that you can take advantage of this entire week. I’m personally not a fan of skipping out on family time on Thanksgiving to shop Black Friday deals so I love that many retailers are extending their sales dates throughout the entire week and offering lots of great deals online as well.
That definitely makes shoppers feel less pressured to rush out to the store to take advantage of some of these sales. If you are going out during Black Friday this year, be sure to compare promotions first to make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck.
I also recommend making a list so you can stay on track and bringing along a prepaid Visa card if you don’t want to risk overspending with a credit card. Just because something is on sale doesn’t mean you have to buy it when you probably don’t even need it.
Avoid stores that make you wait in long lines in the cold if you can (some deals are just not worth freezing over) and remember to stay safe.
What are you looking to buy this year? Anything in particular you are looking for a good deal on?
