Back-to-school shopping is over and it’s time to move on to the other biggest sales of the year— Black Friday and Cyber Monday! Don’t take time away from your family and friends this holiday season. Ending your Thanksgiving dinner early to wait in lines or waking up at the crack of dawn to get the best deals is in the past. Use this guide to have a stress-free shopping experience!
What better way to relieve the anxiety of Black Friday and Cyber Monday than by shopping on your couch? A lot of companies have expanded their Black Friday sales to also being online, so you don’t need to wait for Cyber Monday. Now, you can access the same, if not better, deals online that you can in stores!
If you want to find the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, you need to do your research. Don’t focus solely on the discount, look at the original prices too. One store may have a bigger sale to entice you, but their original price is higher. Take both into consideration to discover the better deal. Look for places that post what their discounts are going to be beforehand so you can prepare before the big day.
Figuring out where and what you want to buy on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the day of the sale, is not ideal. There’s nothing worse than finding exactly what you’re looking for and seeing that it’s already out of stock. Start your search a day or so early and add the products to your cart. This way, you’ll be able to go in the morning of the sale and check out right away. No need for last-minute scrambling and scrolling!
