In the United States, the day after Thanksgiving has become known as Black Friday and is considered the official kick-off for holiday shopping. Retailers across the country slash prices, offer doorbuster deals on popular big-ticket items and often open in the wee hours of the morning to extend early bird specials. Dedicated and thrifty shoppers line up outside the stores to be the first to grab that special deal or this season’s popular and hard-to-find gift.
Here are several ways to maximize your Black Friday shopping success:
- Plan ahead. Scour the ads both online and in newspapers.
- Prioritize the wish list. Which item will you save the most if you can nab it?
- Check to see if any of the deals are available online. Why stand in line when you can order from the comfort of your home?
- Compare lists with friends and family. We can’t be in two places at once, and not all the deals on your lists will be at the same store.
- Coordinate with your group to divide and conquer. Work as a team to maximize successful shopping.
- Make sure there isn’t a purchase limit. If there is, make sure the team for that store is big enough to obtain the required number of bounty.
- Set the alarm clock. Some of the best Black Friday deals start soon after midnight.
- Dress warm if you are located in the colder regions of the country.
- Pack a snack, a thermos of tea or coffee and maybe even a lawn chair. Those lines and the wait get long.
- Work in pairs. You don’t want to lose your place in line if nature calls.
