Day 139: Black Friday Sales, Puyallup, WA

Black Friday…you either love it or hate it, but no matter how you feel, you cant deny that there are some great deals out there.

For some of you, you will avoid it like the plague (I completely understand) but for others, this is your one chance to get all your shopping done early and save a small fortune while your at it.

Here are 3 helpful tips to get the best bargins:

1. Do Your Research Before Friday!
Some of you may be thinking, well duh, but I’m amazed how many people are waiting in line at the Best Buy and have no clue what specials or sales are even available. They just know there will be good things. If you want to see the ads ahead of time, click here: www.BlackFriday.info

2. Beat The Crowds, Shop Your Deals Online.
Internet shoppers can beat the early birds by shopping online in the pre-dawn hours of Black Friday. Many retailers will be posting their Black Friday specials, which can be ordered online and picked-up at your local store. Special “Web only” deals will also be available starting as early as Thanksgiving eve.

3. Bring All The Ads With You.
Many stores offer a “lowest-price” guarantee; however you may be required to produce a copy of the exact product being advertised for less. Most local retailers will not meet Internet prices even when the product is advertised on the same company’s website, but it cannot hurt to try. Print the Web page that details the product and shows the advertised price.

Be safe out there…especially you Wal-Mart early bird shoppers (you are definitely brave). I will be camping out at the Best Buy…with my ads in hand! 🙂
