Retailers know that the start of the big holiday shopping season happens to be on Black Friday or the day after thanksgiving. Because of this they send out dozens of flyers advertising all of their so called special deals. But did you know that those who do their shopping on this particular day end up spending about Forty percent more than they would if they waited until after black Friday. There are some very popular stores that have great sales after black Friday right online.
Take walmart.com for example, which will be having some amazing deals on the Monday following Black Friday. However many of the best deals are online. You may feel that once you calculate the shipping cost into the price then it comes out to about the same amount that you would spend in the store. But this is not true; most of the online stores offers free shipping if you spend a certain amount of money. So it really does pay to do your bulk shopping online. Not only will you be saving money, but you will not have to be bothered will the long lines and of course the nasty crowds that come along with this time of year.
You should also check for those online coupons. A lot of retailers come out with special coupons that can only be used after black Friday, so make sure that you check the date. Don’t forget about the clearance section on your favorite website. Just about all of the top websites like Target.com, walmart.com, and even toysrus.com have some great clearance sections, in addition to the coupons that you can also find online. Make sure you read the fine print on any coupons that you find online. Sometimes there are coupons that are fake or have already expired. Remember if the price and the product seem too good to be true than it probably is.
Even your food can be ordered online, just make sure that it is from a very reputable company. This means that you may have to do your homework before you place your order. You should take some time to visit epinions.com and check out their reviews on some of the companies that you are interested in ordering from. You may find out some helpful information that will save you a lot of headache in the long run from these types of opinion sites. The bottom line is that black Friday is not really the best day for getting deals, although in some areas you can find some bargains. But why bother when you can just wait until the following week and do some shopping from the comfort of your own home. Why not give it a try and see how much money you actually end up saving.
