Walmart Black Friday

Walmart Black Friday 2014 had a big year with massive discounts on TVs, and as predicted, we are seeing larger TVs at even lower prices this year. The Samsung 55” Smart HDTV is going for $498 while the Roku 55” HDTV is going for $348, to name just a few of the TVs. Plus, they have big discounts on your favorite gaming consoles; both the XBox One Gears of War bundle and the PS4 Uncharted bundle are on sale for $299. This will definitely be the year to shop for your entertainment needs, and in-store and online doorbusters will be the way to go.

Target Black Friday

You may be asking yourself, “Does Apple have Black Friday Deals”? Well, they really don't but the leaked Target Black Friday ad shows even more impressive prices on Apple products this year than in 2014! The iPad Air 2 is starting at $499 with a $150 gift card, the iPad Mini 4 is starting at $399 with a $100 gift card, and the iPad mini 2 is starting at $269 with an $80 gift card, which is even less than 2014! Target giving away high-value gift cards with any purchase makes the decision easy for shoppers. And to top it off, they will be offering free shipping all holiday season, with guaranteed Christmas delivery on orders made on or before December 21st.

Amazon Black Friday

Step up your online shopping this holiday season and get done early with the Amazon Countdown to Black Friday! Every day leading up to Black Friday you can snag early deals; we’ve already seen items like Phantom Pain for $39.99 and 45%-69% off the Cuisinart White and Stainless Collection. With great shipping options, massive inventory, and already low prices, they will definitely be giving the brick and mortar store a run for their money this year. The deals are only available for one day, so check back regularly so you don’t miss out!

 

Overstock Black Friday

Home goods might not be the first thing that come to mind when you think Black Friday sale, but they are definitely not something that should be overlooked. From furniture to jewelry to clothing, Overstock shows savings that could be up to 70% off. Plus they already have pre-Black Friday deals posted, like up to 55% off mattresses and memory foam and up to 64% off area rugs. With sales this good now, you can expect even bigger ones the day of and even more amazing doorbusters!

Best Shopping Tips for Black Friday

  1. Always ask for price matching if the store offers it. Even though it takes extra work, you should take advantage of the incentive. This is where prep will really come in handy and knowing who is carrying what and for how much.
  2. Do not shop without a list, whether in store or online. The quickest way to overspend is not having a list of what you need or want to buy. Go the extra mile and set a firm budget and break down how much you are willing to spend on each item. You will be glad at the end of the day that you did so.
  3. Comparison shop. Whether you are flipping through paper ads or shopping online, make sure you are getting the best deals when you are holiday shopping. Not every store has the price matching luxury, so you may have to go to multiple stores to finish your shopping if the is discount significant enough!
  4. Follow on social media! Often times, retailers will give exclusive deals for their fans to use first. Following them will give you immediate access to savings right when they are released; plus you could get sneak peeks to special holiday giveaways and more.
