Should you shop online or in stores for Black Friday?
Traditionally, the best Black Friday deals have been part of an in-store event that happens on or after Thanksgiving. But in recent years, and with the success of Cyber Monday, all of the best discounts have been moving to become online deals. That being said, many a retailer will have sales going on both online and at their stores. And if you’re looking for clothing sales or Black Friday sneaker deals, you may not want to shop online.
Major retailers like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart are offering contact-free curbside pickup as well. So if you don’t want to worry about shipping and don’t want to go into the store, there will be a third option for you.
Black Friday vs Cyber Monday: Which has the best deals?
Cyber Monday sales have been just as good — if not better — than the best Black Friday deals. However, considering the potential shipping delays and problems we saw arrive from Prime Day, you may not want to wait until after Black Friday ends to do your holiday shopping.
The main concern with Cyber Monday deals this year is that anything ordered after a certain point may not arrive before Christmas. So the earlier you get your shopping done, the less chance of that happening. With stores like Walmart and Target offering free curbside pickup on the majority of their discounts, however, Cyber Monday might be the best time to find deals on items you can just pick up yourself. Otherwise, a gift card is always a safe choice.
Tips for shopping Black Friday deals in 2020
Although retailers still promote doorbuster deals and in-store-only discounts, most Black Friday deals are also available online. This is a dangerous time for your bank account, so here are some of the best tips and tricks to remember while you browse. If you want to make the most out of your Black Friday 2020 shopping, here are the things to keep in mind.
Check for Black Friday ads: Deal after deal is rolling in from Walmart, Best Buy, and Target. Each retailer will likely be offering up a weekly Black Friday ad with the best Black Friday deals for next week.
Not every deal is a good deal: It is a fairly common tactic for retailers to promote “reduced prices” during an event like this, but savings aren’t always what they seem. Often than those products you’re looking at have been on sale for months already, and today’s deals have nothing to do with the price cut you see.
Beware of phishing scams: With the growing dependence on online shipping, it’s easier than ever to have your information stolen online.
Don’t forget your budget: Shopping online can be addictive. If you aren’t careful with your purchases, you can end up overspending without any real plan in place to pay everything off. Even if you’re planning on buying a lot of smaller items, make sure to have a budget and stick to it.
Check shipping dates: Almost every online retailer is expecting to have shipping delays during the holiday season. Make sure to check whether or not the items you’re trying to buy will be able to get to you in time.
