Outlast the Busiest Shopping Day of the Year

The day after Thanksgiving is the highly anticipated Black Friday, when retailers offer up a slew of great deals for savvy holiday shoppers. Stores open extra early, and deals are heralded as the lowest prices offered all year. Here are a few tips and suggestions for those shoppers who want to get a great deal—without losing their sanity.

A few major retailers are starting earlier than usual this year, opening their doors late Thanksgiving night. Many offer door-buster specials that give extra savings to early bird shoppers. The hot-ticket items (especially electronics) will sell out quickly, so shop early to give yourself a better shot at what you want. Focused on overall savings instead of specific items? Hit the snooze button! The deals will run all day, with some continuing through the weekend.

It’s important to know what you want before going out to get it. Keep your eye on the prize. A lot of shops will offer up great-looking deals, but don’t get sidetracked. To avoid overspending, go in with a list of items and stick to it.

Do your research. Occasionally, there are price matches offered for items on sale during Black Friday. It’s also possible to find items on sale for less than Black Friday prices. Less stress and the ability to shop anytime are well worth a few hours of investigation.

Cyber Monday is another great way to score some amazing deals. Retailers will offer up coupons, discounts, free shipping, and other savings on their most popular items. Know the deals before they happen, and shop accordingly. Though Cyber Monday lacks the instant gratification of leaving a store with coveted item in hand, it does offer a significantly lower stress quotient.

Use these tips to get incredible deals with minimal annoyance on Black Friday.

I've done Black Friday shopping in the past, and although it was a great way to jump start the holiday season, I just don't feel like it's just worth it these days. I typically find deals that are just as good online, so I choose sleep in and avoid the crowds. This comment has been removed.

I went early this year (not 12am but 7am), and the traffic wasn't too bad. I just got the essentials that had amazing deals like boots, a watch, a few presents here and there :) And yes @colormered I wore my comfy shoes! That I will agree with you on 100%! This comment has been removed.

Sorry this wasn't in my earlier comment... Getting a bunch of stuff we probably don't need is not really being thankful for what you already have. I would rather be with my family and do things that matter more to me than shopping. This comment has been removed.

I am in no way dissing Black Friday, but I don't do it. I think it's rediculous and so unworth it. If you are really a savvy shopper, you will find just as good ways to save your money. :) This comment has been removed.
