Early Preparation Tips for Black Friday

I know this post might be a little bit early but if you’re like me Black Friday comes and goes so quickly that I wasn’t able to get any savings.

Either I wasn’t prepared and didn’t have the money to spend or I don’t know which site has what sales and if I actually was getting the best deal.

This year I wanted to be prepared and have a plan ahead of time so I can get the best deals!
While searching for tips, I found Slickdeals and found this post had great tips!

How Slickdeals Works:

Members find and share deals and coupons.

Every item on Slickdeals is rated and reviewed by the community before being posted.

The community consists of members as well as their team of Deal editors who once were members that showed an ability for finding exceptional deals.
Deal editors have knowledge in their category to research the price and price history from different merchants, selecting only the best deals to post on the website.
The website features deals from retailers who have earned a positive reputation based on user feedback from previous deals posted on Slickdeals.

The list of merchants is endless – Amazon, Macy’s, Ulta Beauty, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Kohl’s.
There is a variety of items that can be purchased on this site anything from grocery items, cameras, health and Beauty, computers, movies, video games and they also have sales, discounts, coupons and coupon codes!

Now, back to preparations…
This post is super helpful because it answers questions like “What Stores Have the Best Sales?” And “How much can you Really Save?”

Along with an idea of when Black Friday ads are released by retailers, the best times to shop and when sales begin online.

Here is a snippet of some tips included in the post:
  1. Hold off on certain purchases. Wait for Cyber Monday deals to buy toys or apparel at Amazon. The retailer is known to drop its prices in these categories even further after the weekend.
  2. Avoid shipping fees. Many stores waive or lower their free-shipping thresholds on Friday, while others hold off until Cyber Monday. If the deal won’t wait, opt for in-store pickup to dodge the charge altogether.
  3. Join the clubs. Most retailers have loyalty programs or welcome offers for new email subscribers, so be sure to opt in prior to shopping to take advantage of any rewards or perks. (For instance, a My Lowe’s membership includes free shipping, and it’s free to enroll.)
  4. Do your homework. Use our forums to browse current offers on items of interest to make sure you’re getting the best price available.
  5. Try a promo code. Always double-check a store’s Slickdeals coupon page to look for any additional ways to save. For example, you can usually stack a Sephora promo code with the retailer’s current promotion to snag a free deluxe sample or an exclusive holiday set. 

Slickdeals isn’t just helpful during Black Friday. There are savings throughout the entire year.

I hope this helps you prepare for Black Friday!!
