Each year Black Friday sales start sooner. This year it was more like Black Wednesday sales! I got asked a couple of times when to shop. Shop now, or hold out until the day after Thanksgiving in hopes of a better sale?! I was wondering that myself, so I looked back on my Black Friday post last year. To be honest, there is not too much of a difference. I don’t see sales changing too much. Maybe a retailer will bump a sale from 20% to 25% off. But then you risk what you want selling out, and stressing over that! I say shop and buy now when you see what you want. Sales will pretty much stay the same all the way through Cyber Monday.
And if a retailer does for some reason have a huge massive different Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, call or chat their customer service and get a price adjustment. I have never ever had an issue with doing that before.
A couple of Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales Tips:
Shop Online – I know, I know. So not what you picture when you hear Black Friday shopping. However, times are changing! Stores are offering the exact same deals online as in store. Which is a total win, because we can stay home, avoid the crazy/angry mobs, stay in our pajama’s, and online shop while eating all the leftover pie.
Add to cart, and CHECK OUT – don’t over think it. Buy it, and buy it quick. If you leave it in your cart it will go out of stock and you will miss out on the discounted price. You can always-always return items, but missing out on that sale price of a must have, will forever haunt you.
