Black Friday is once again upon us and everyone likes to get a good deal. Many people will hold off on a big purchase until Black Friday to get the “best” deal. At Kosher Casual, we are on board for the action as well, but from the other side of the checkout counter, the seller’s side!
We wanted to share some tips we have learned over the years to help you get the best deals and walk away happy.
#1 Take advantage of retailers with online stores
This tip is fairly obvious because the biggest benefit is the ability to avoid the chaos of waiting in line, digging through racks or shelves. Getting to the store after finally finding a parking spot, just to learn the product you came for is out of stock! Some retailers even offer Black Friday discounts online a few days before Black Friday. This leads us to our next tip…
#2 When you have an item at discount in your shopping cart, buy it!
Do not hesitate or wait until Friday if you are already seeing a discount in your cart, there is a strong likelihood that the item you want could sell out. So do not wait days to buy, if the site says Black Friday discount, it’s likely that the prices won’t go down much more.
#3 Plan accordingly using a retailers website
This tip is for items that are only available at in-store sales. In order to make the most out of Black Friday, it is best to prioritize the items you plan to buy on Black Friday. Use a retailer website to organize by store hours and locations. Choose the items that you absolutely need and get those first, Black Friday is not the day to roam or browse your favorite stores.
#4 Shop with a friend
By bringing a friend along, you can help each other accomplish more. Perhaps there is a long line in one store, one person can stand in line while the other checks out items that were lower on the priority list. More importantly than that, Black Friday shopping can be exhausting and frustrating, bringing a friend can help you both laugh off the quirky situations that come with big sales.
#5 Don’t go to Walmart 😉
This one does not need so much explanation so I’ll just leave you with this…
