Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year. On Wednesday many stores will release their sales fliers in local newspapers and in e-mails to millions of anxious holiday shoppers. According to About.com the average person will spend roughly $350 on Black Friday and the average holiday budget is around $690. Although Black Friday is not the biggest day of the year at the promotional products company, 4AllPromos, the product specialists have a helpful list of do’s and don’ts to abide by this Black Friday.
Just like Santa Claus it’s important to make a list and maybe check it over once or twice after reviewing the sales fliers. The list should include names of recipients and possible gifts. It’s always good to have an idea or two in case some of the ideas for presents don’t come to fruition. Composing a list will also help stick to a budget. Sometimes all the ‘savings’ advertised this time of year can lead to overspending. Stick to a list to avoid unnecessary purchases.
On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving many of the big stores release their sales filers in local newspapers and some may even send out e-mails. Pre-shop in the fliers to determine which stores should be visited first. Many stores offer early morning door buster savings to those early birds willing to wait in line. Other stores may boast large inventories of certain items or special savings later in the day to help busy shoppers. Do search for coupons and special savings codes. Many stores will give additional discounts to ambitious shoppers who clip coupons or order online with special promo codes. Also, remember to check social media such as Facebook and Twitter for exclusive deals. Finally, remember to shop on Cyber Monday. The Monday after Thanksgiving is when many online retailers offer discounts, free shipping and special gifts to those looking to avoid the crowds and shop in their pajamas.
The biggest don’t of holiday shopping is to not wait until the last minute. Don’t risk barren inventories and the last minute rushing around. It’s also a good idea to go out early on Black Friday as some of the best savings tend to be in the early hours. Get the shopping over early and go home and eat some leftovers. Don’t assume Black Friday prices are the best around. Some retailers may actually lower their prices up to a week after the big Black Friday rush. Don’t buy more than you need. The steep discounts can be tempting but sticking to a list and being mindful of quality over quantity is a much better plan. Finally, don’t be a Grinch. The holidays are about being thankful for what we all have. Be kind to strangers in line, don’t cut, don’t yell at sales people and remember to smile. Everyone will appreciate the kind gestures during the stressful and busy holiday season.
