6 Essential Shopping Tips for Black Friday

Black Friday Shopping Tips

Black Friday brings out the shopping adrenaline in die hard shoppers like no other day! A little preparation can make that very busy day more fun, more productive, and less stressful.

1) Scope Out the Sales

Check out the various retailers’ ads to find out what the deals are. You’ll find many online sites that will give you a heads up beforehand so you know where the best deals will be. Check online store sites as well as newspaper inserts.

2) Make a Schedule

Find out what time the stores you want to visit will be open. Map out a strategy to hit the stores based on those times and their locations so that you aren’t doing unnecessary driving.

3) Be Comfortable

Few things ruin a shopping trip faster than being hungry, thirsty, tired or having sore feet. Get some sleep the night before, eat before you go, pack snacks and water, and wear comfortable shoes. It’s going to be a long day and you can expect stores to be crowded and lines to be long.

4) Charge Your Cell Phone

This is especially important if you are shopping with a group. Be considerate of other shoppers—things will be noisy enough without you chatting on your cell phone—but it sure comes in handy if you’re having trouble locating a group member in the crowds.

5) Be Safe

Don’t make your wallet accessible to others. Keep it close to your body—use a fanny pack or a bag with a strap that crosses your body to hold your wallet. Don’t carry large amounts of cash. Don’t leave your purchases in plain view in your vehicle. Put them in the trunk, or at the very least, cover them with a blanket. If at all possible, stop at home throughout the day drop off big ticket items.

6) Enjoy the Day

Remember that today will not be a day to plan on doing things quickly. Be patient with store employees and with other shoppers and drivers. Enjoy the hustle and bustle AND the deals you are finding!

Win a Lalaloopsy Doll or Lego Set From RetailMeNot!

Have you heard of RetailMeNot?  I’m a huge fan because they always help me to save lots of money!  Anytime I’m shopping online for anything, I always go to RetailMeNot first and check to see if there are any coupons available.  For example, there are some hot deals going on at Kohl’s right now, so I’d head over to RetailMeNot first and look to see what coupons there are that I could use – like the promo code SMS9507 that’s good for 10% off of anything at Kohl’s through 11/26!  You can find coupon codes for 130,000 stores, and they’ll even give you links to printables where available that you can take into the store with you.

I’m even more in love with RetailMeNot now that they want to help one lucky reader to mark something off their holiday gift list!  In honor of Black Friday shopping they are sponsoring a giveaway for the winner’s choice of a Lalaloopsy doll or this Lego Creator set.  Each has a retail value of approximately $50 and I’m sure any child would be excited to receive one of them!  My personal favorite is the Lego set – can you see the satellite dish on the roof?  They just didn’t have this cool stuff when I was a kid!

Entering is super easy because there are NO mandatory entries!  Just do any or all of the things listed in the entry form below and then click “I did this”.  The winner will be selected at midnight on Monday the 28th and announced the next morning.  It may take a few seconds for the entry widget to load so please be patient.  Good luck!

Getting Geared Up For Black Friday

Are you planning to join in the deal hunting fun on Black Friday?  I personally plan to spend the day in my jammies recovering from Thanksgiving dinner, but I will also be on the computer bringing you the hot deals 🙂  There have been so many deals online and between my Swagbucks earnings and gift stockpiling we’re pretty much ready for Christmas.  I still need to get a gift or two for my husband, and he’ll probably leave his shopping for me until the last minute (despite my increasingly urgent hints), but the kids, parents, siblings and in-laws are already taken care of.  I’m actually a little jealous of those of you who will be out in the fray so pick up some hot deals for me would ya?  In the meanwhile, check out all the Black Friday ads and deals at AFullCup so you can plan your day, and watch for a post here tomorrow on Black Friday shopping strategies.
