4 Tips To Save Money On Black Friday Online Sales

by - 11/14/2018 12:00:00 AM



Up until a couple of years ago. I would complete all of my Black Friday shopping in-store. I remember my first Black Friday experience as if it was yesterday. My aunt would go Black Friday shopping every year. She extended the offer to my sister and I. This took place back in 2004. I remember not getting any sleep, due to being super excited and leaving out of the house around 3 or 4 am. This was back prior to stores opening on Thanksgiving Day, and offering sales online as well. Fast forward to now. I do most of my Black Friday shopping for the comfort of my bed. This has come from trial and error, and I've learned something new each year. To improve my shopping experience. Below I'm sharing my four favorite tips to save money on Black Friday sales online.

Emails
I always try to stress the importance of signing up for your favorite store Newsletter. A lot of times stores will send exclusive offers and VIP access to email subscribers. This is perfect, especially around Black Friday. I received a ton of emails last year for early bird access.

Sale Starts
Many stores sale starts online before the actual in-store sale. It’s so important to actually know when the sale starts with the store you plan on shopping at. Create a list of all of the stores you plan on shopping at and do some research to when the sale starts online.

Reminders
Since each sale starts at different times/days. Create a reminder on your phone to make sure you don’t miss out on the sale, also this ensures that the items in which you're looking for don't sell out.

Price Comparison
So many stores are offering great sales. However, not all sale prices are the same. It’s so important to really sit down and price compare. Find out which items you, want, and price compares with several stores. Make sure it's the same exact item. To ensure that you're actually getting the best deal. For instance, if you're looking to purchase an Apple watch, you find the same exact watch at Target and Best Buy for the same exact price. (so you think) However, the watch at Target is a little more expensive, has more "GB" you're also going to get a $50 discount, and 5% off for using your red card. You have to really break down "what's a good price".

Coupon Codes
If you’re signed up for your favorite store's email and mailing list. You should be receiving coupon code offers. If you haven’t received these offers yet. No worries. Some stores will send the codes the same day as the sale. You can always do a quick google search to see if you come across any valid coupon codes. I've saved a ton by just doing a quick Google search and signing up for my favorite store email list.

  18. I admire those that have mastered the art of couponing and Black Friday sales. I tried for a Black Friday item once and they sold the last one to the person in front of me. I was pretty discouraged after spending all the time in line.
