Holiday shopping used to be centered around Black Friday, but Black Friday has turned into much more than just a day! Black Friday, the official kickoff for holiday shopping, originated over three decades ago and has grown into a massive shopping extravaganza. However, great deals no longer exist only on Black Friday! Follow these tips to save the most money while shopping this weekend.

  1. Shop on Thanksgiving to save on electronics such as TV’s, cameras, and smartphones.
  2. Keep an eye out for local promotions on “Small Business Saturday”. You’ll still be able to support your local mom and pop shop while saving money.
  3. Shop on Cyber Monday for soft goods such as clothes, shoes, and beauty items. Skip the chaos and shop from the comfort of home (or your office)!
  4. Do NOT buy gift cards, decorations, or winter gear. Wait until mid-December or even January.
