Get the Best Black Friday Deals at Home

As the holidays descend upon us and gift buying gears up, every merchant on the planet is doing whatever they can to get you to spend your money at THEIR store.  Years ago, stores starting luring you in the day after Thanksgiving with famous door buster Black Friday deals.  And in 2005 Cyber Monday launched as Black Friday’s online equivalent.

But today, most Black Friday deals are just as strong online as they are in stores!  And with online shopping at an all time high, you may never have to fight the crowds again.  So brace yourself for some bargain shopping strategies from WantNot.net’s online shopping expert Mir Kamin & the deal makers at 6pm– and let’s kick off this holiday shopping season by staying at home and reaping some serious savings!

Why Not to Shop in Stores on Black Friday

Mir would rather die than make her way through the Black Friday crowds.  She swears that unless you have it in you to wait in line for hours hoping to get the hottest electronic or toy of the month, don’t waste your time! It’s not worth the stress.  There are very few items on sale in the stores that are not also on sale online.

Make a List

Fab & Fru and 6pm want to remind you, before you start your holiday gift buying – MAKE A LIST!  You will save a lot of time and energy if you write down exactly whom you are buying for and what they like. Simply jot down the names and personalities of your potential gift recipients and leave it next to your computer so you’re ready to go!

The Sales have Already Started!

Good news for all of us!  Start checking your favorite sites and online stores RIGHT NOW for amazing deals.  In hopes of moving more inventory, stores have already started running their Black Friday deals – and expect them to last well into the season!

Establish an Account Before Shopping!

Good one 6pm! Don’t spend 3o minutes filling your cart with fantastic deals only to find out you can’t check out before you set up you account.  Setting up your account after you shop could cause you to lose your sale items to a more organized shopper! Protect your finds by making sure you have an account established and login before you start to add things to your cart!
