Black Friday Previews

Black Friday continues to arrive earlier and earlier each year, and this year is no exception. Not only do Black Friday “specials” come earlier, but the “previews” (aka “leaks”) of deals, doorbusters, and specials that stores will be offering on Black Friday come earlier and earlier too.

While I personally am not a Black Friday Shopping Fanatic, I know there are thousands of you who will brave the jammed parking lots, crowds, long lines, and limited stock on doorbuster deals to take advantage of bargains that can be found on that discount shopping day. And, being well prepared in advance is one of the best ways for you to get the most out of those deals.

So for those who are determined to take part in the Black Friday Shopping ritual, we bring you some of our favorite sites and articles for finding Black Friday deal previews, tips and tricks:

A Super Simple Way to Save Money When Shopping

If something doesn’t seem right…

Shopping sales, using coupons and codes, waiting for ultra clearance deals all are great ways to save money.  But there’s one thing that could cost you money, even with those discounts and clearance prices: not double checking. I noticed a tweet from mentioning a Columbia sportswear clearance sale with prices up to 70% off. I clicked on the link, browsed over the items in the clearance section, and noticed two sweaters that appeared to be identical to each other, but priced differently. One was $54 and the other $45. I opened each page, compared the features listed, sku numbers, close-up pictures, and other than a variation in the color selection, there was no difference. One was listed at 40% off, the other at 50% off. We would receive an easy 10% savings just for taking a quick 5 minutes to do a little simple double check. If something doesn’t seem right… double check.
