I applaud all of you who go out Black Friday shopping. I've only gone once and promised myself to never go again. However, there's nothing wrong with wanting to get good deals. Here are some tips for the brave citizens who will be setting foot in the stores this year: 1. Plan ahead Look at deals online (or newspaper ads if you still read them) before even heading out. Also, knowing what you want is important, that way if a flash deal happens you can take it asap. Perhaps even take notes on Google Keep to stay organized! (https://keep.google.com/) 2. Compare Prices Sometimes stores advertise prices that are not worth it. Is waiting in line for 4 hours worth a $25 or $50 discount on an electronic? Your call, but at least it's good to prepare. Take advantage of websites like http://www.pricewatch.com/ where you can check prices for items. Make sure you check for the lowest prices! 3. Use store mobile apps Several stores now have mobile apps where they have deals. Take advantage of this! I'll try to share some store apps here on Vingle in this Black Friday collection for you to use! 4. Follow your favorite brands and stores online If you don't have a twitter, then think about getting one. You can find out about great details more quickly when you follow your favorite brands online. For example, I not only follow Tech blogs, but also Samsung, Apple, LG, and more. Also like pages on Facebook if that is where you spend most of your social media time. 5. Wait till Cyber Monday You could also just skip the whole thing and wait for Cyber Monday deals. Online shopping is huge now, so you can shop for great deals from the comfort of your home. As long as you stay up to date and do some research.
