Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year, when many stores offer rock bottom prices and deals to get shoppers in their doors. Over the years I’ve been able to score some really great deals at store sales on Black Friday. The best deal I’ve ever scored in a store was on a Hoover Vacuum Cleaner, at Kohls. It was an older model of the WindTunnel, several years ago, normally priced at just under $200. It was on sale for 60% off ($80), I had a coupon to save 30%, ($64), and a “Doorbuster” deal coupon for $20 off any $20+ purchase ($44), and then I had $30 in Kohls cash from a sale a couple of weeks prior to use. When it was all said and done, I got the $200 vacuum for $14! The best deal I ever scored online was a computer, with the specs that I needed for $500 (it was normally $1400+)!
My shopping strategy has always been to plan ahead. I make a list of each recipient, a general idea of what I want to gift them, and then browse the circulars to see if any of those items are on sale, or perhaps come across something they’d enjoy more. Once I have a list of what items I want from each store, I’d check for opening times and specific times that each item would be on sale, so I could plan my trip. I like to know that I need to be at Store A at 5am, Store B at 6am, etc. I go in, go directly to the products I need, get in line to pay, and move on to the next store. If I plan things right, and the crowds aren’t too bad, I could get everything on my list and be home by 9 or 10 in the morning with my shopping for the season complete!
As I get older, I prefer to do more of my shopping online from home in my PJ’s with no crowds to fight, and being able to apply coupon codes for discounts and free shipping to my door is a bonus. I really, really want a Kitchen Aid Mixer this year, and have been browsing the ads for the best price on one, so I can determine if it’s at all possible with our holiday budget this season. I am matching sales prices with coupon codes for discounts and free shipping from Coupons.com, and hope I can find the one I want at a price I can afford
