So on Friday everyone will be hitting up stores in search of the best deals around, some even going out on Thanksgiving night. Take these tips from retail experts on the biggest mistakes shoppers make on Black Friday:
1 – Don’t pay full price for add-ons – stores give you a deal on big ticket items like TVs and then try to make up for it on accessories you can get cheaper online.
2 – Don’t forget to comparison shop – just because something is on sale for Black Friday doesn’t mean that’s the best price you can find.
3 – Don’t buy toys – they are NEVER cheapest during Black Friday and you can get better deals during the first two weeks of December.
4 – Thinking of getting a Black Friday TV? Don’t forget to look at the specifics of the set on sale – the features might not be ideal for your needs.
5 – If you’ve got specific products in mind, be sure you’re hitting your Black Friday stores at the right time. Don’t let your item go out of stock because you went late.
6 – If your product is sold out, don’t buy something more expensive just to justify the fact that you waited outside in the freezing cold.
7 – Signing up for store credit cards is a Black Friday weakness – even if they offer you a better spot in line, don’t take the bait.
8 – If the store claims to match pricing, don’t forget to check the fine print.
Good luck shopping this weekend and have a great Thanksgiving!
