Featured Author: Contra Costa Living Blog Team

Black Friday is one of the major shopping events of the year, and it marks the beginning of holiday shopping! Do not let Black Friday turn your holiday smiles into frowns. Be safe and plan ahead with these simple tips for shopping safely on Black Friday.

  • Do your research: If you are planning on purchasing a large item during the Black Friday sales, read reviews on the item before you commit to the purchase. Just because you are getting it cheap, does not mean it is a good deal. Make sure it is a quality product worth the Black Friday hassle.
  • Browse the deals ahead of time. Most stores advertise their Black Friday deals ahead of time, which can help you get a good idea of what deals are available and where the best deals are. This can help you to decide where you want to go as well as budget for what you are shopping for. Making a list of the products you want, the prices, and locations can go a long way to making Black Friday easier for you.
  • Bring ads with you. If a store has a lowest price guarantee, bring in any ads from competing stores for the product you want, it may help you to get even better deals on your Black Friday items.
  • Use store credit cards. An easy way to practice savvy shopping can be by using your store cards instead of your personal ones. Many stores offer extra discounts or lower interest rates if you put your purchases on their store’s rewards card.
  • Do not forget the gift receipts. Most stores will print you a gift receipt that you can include with your gift in case you need to return or exchange the item. Make sure to get one, just in case!
