It’s no secret Black Friday and Cyber Monday are coming with their unbelievable deals. Many people can’t even wait and stay in front of their laptops all night ready to buy right when the offers are brought out.
Anyhow, even though deals are great, there are some techniques you could use to make the most out of the busiest shopping days of the holiday season.
- MAKE A LIST
Make a list for what you REALLY need and stick to it! Master self-control. Just because something is on sale, doesn’t mean that you need it. A deal is only a deal if you are truly going to use the product.
- START EARLY
You don’t have to wait all night for the offers to go online, but you can definitely start your shopping early in the morning to have time to compare prices and search for extra cupons.
- SHOP EVERYTHING AT ONCE
If you know you need several items that you can acquire at the same store, have your list ready. This will save you some money on multiple shipping charges and might even net you free shipping if you spend enough or make you be entitled to additional discounts.
- DON’T FORGET SHIPPING COSTS
When you sum up all your items don’t forget to account shippings costs. They can start adding up fast resulting in hundreds of extra dollars. Many stores have a minimum purchase requirement of $50-$100 or more to be eligible for free shipping.
- PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS
Be careful getting caught up in the flurry of sales. Luckily, you can do some quick online research comparing prices and searching up for coupons. Some sites allow to use coupon codes and save money on top of the sale price. Also, you may want to read customer reviews on the product. Sometimes “cheap results expensive”. You won’t save money on an item if it ends up breaking or being something you didn’t expect.
