Shopping Tricks

Savvy shoppers will have a shorthand list of to-dos whenever the biggest Black Friday Deals come every year. Want to get the best deals for the goodies you want? Follow these shopping tricks and tips to score big.

Plan days, weeks if possible for the items you want instead of waiting on the actual day to decide what to buy. It’s tempting to just buy everything in sight, but you can get useful information when you know which items were the best selling ones during last year’s deals.

Check Your Email

Large shops and retail companies will start sending out Black Friday coupons and deals on their email list. Some of these can give you a cool 10% discount just for being on their mailing list. You wouldn’t want to get too much clutter though, so set up a filter that sends promotional emails to a specific folder.

This is a subtle mind trick that lets the retailers know what you want. Log in, add your desired items to the shopping cart, then don’t do anything. These companies will have a way to know and you’ll usually get an offer or a discount for the products you left behind.

The More Coupons, The Better

Who doesn’t love coupons? Everyone does. If you want more, check out the best coupon sites such as CouponBirds for exclusive codes and additional percentage off for the hottest commodities.

Online Pricing Could Be Cheaper

More often than not, online prices are lower than their in-store counterparts. If you’re looking to buy new sneakers for instance, do a quick comparison first. You may even be able to use Vans coupons to bring down the online price tag. You can easily check out any brand or shop on your trusty smart phone. Have doubts about the in-store price? Use the same device to place a call to your local retailer to gather invaluable information.
