Black Friday is less than 1 week away and the excitement in the offices is starting to build. We have a long list of things we want to buy and we wanted to provide you with our best tips on getting the most with the least amount of effort and moneyTIP #1: Do Plan AheadThis is so you can allocate your budget accordingly. It also means you need to get your hands on the Black Friday Ads before they’re published. You can go to sites online for that, but be forewarned ads for one store alone can be 40 pages long.TIP #2: Don’t Wait in Early Morning Friday Store Lines.Contrary to popular belief, almost of the Black Friday items are available online. The reason everyone thinks they need to go into stores is because that’s what the mainstream media likes to show because it’s dramatic and newsworthy. Save the drama for other parts of your life and stay in the comfort of your home while others wait for hours in the cold.TIP #3: Do Be Online at Midnight Eastern Time on Thanksgiving DayYes we do mean Thursday and not Friday. Don’t let the name fool you. Contrary to popular belief most Black Friday Sales begin on Thursday at midnight.TIP #4: Do Keep in Mind Great Deals can Last Beyond Black FridayIf you miss some of the Black Friday deals, don’t be disheartened. While Black Friday gets all the attention, its younger sibling Cyber Monday may actually be the bigger overall shopping day.
