Time magazine put together a must-read compilation of what you need to know this Black Friday!
1. Paying full price for add-ons. Don’t undermine your savings by buying accessories like cables and batteries at list price, says Dan de Grandpre, CEO of DealNews.com. Stores display these items prominently and conveniently for a reason. Especially with electronics, the accessories you need to get are strictly commodities; one store’s isn’t going to be measurably different from another’s in quality. Yes, it’s a little more effort, but these are the kinds of items online shopping was invented for.
2. Not bothering to comparison shop. “One mistake is assuming that something in a store, simply because it’s on sale on Black Friday, is a good deal,” says Jim Wang, founder of the blog Bargaineering.com. “It might be a decent deal, but you could do better going online.” In fact, it’s gotten easier to do the Black Friday sale experience without having to leave your house — or even wait until Friday. Many online retailers, along with some brick-and-mortar chains, are rolling out their holiday specials throughout this week. If you do hit the mall on Friday, though, most of our experts strongly suggest taking a tablet or smart phone with a price-comparison app or two so you can make sure you’re getting the real-deal best deal.
