Black Friday is rapidly approaching and millions of Americans are shuffling through store ads, surfing the web, and flipping through TV channels for one purpose – finding the best deals to buy this Black Friday.Black Friday is the official kick-start to the holiday season and is the busiest shopping day in America. Thousands of people will get up in the early morning hours just to stand in line with other “half awake but caffeine infused” customers hoping to snag the best deal for the cheapest price.I, on the other hand, will be sitting in my underwear in front of my laptop adding items to my shopping cart, then with one simple click, will purchase the items I need and go back to bed. You have a MUCH better chance of buying something online verse waiting in line for it at the store. Most stores have a maximum number of “Black Friday” items in stock and once they are gone – they are gone forever. The product quantities online are much higher and result in giving you better odds of getting them. I have been buying products online for more than 5 years and usually make anywhere from $500 to a few thousand dollars of profit in 1 day. It all depends on what deals are being offered. If you want to make money, then stay home. There is nothing more frustrating and irritating than waking up at 3 AM, standing in line for hours, then finally getting inside the store only to find out that the items you badly wanted were taken by someone who is two times your size. Not fun.To successfully prepare for Black Friday, you first need to do extensive homework. If you want to make money, you need to find out what to buy. Start as soon as you can. There are many sites online that list each store along with their deals. Look at the stores that carry items that will become wanted such as electronics, video games, gadgets, toys, etc. These items always skyrocket during the holidays and will give you the best profit.My favorite places to buy from are: Best Buy, Amazon, and Toys R Us. These stores tend to have the best products for the cheapest prices. I HIGHLY recommend leaving Amazon’s homepage open on Black Friday. They always have the best items to buy.Next, make sure to be a member of the site, such as Amazon, and have all your information filled in, such as your credit card info. This allows you to check out quickly and secure your item. The last thing you want is to lose an item because you took to long to add your credit card info.Finally, set realistic expectation. Don’t think that you will make millions from 1 day. Also don’t buy 100 of the same exact items. By setting realistic expectations you will not only have a great time on Black Friday but you might also make some money from it!
