Coupon Katie Black Friday Shopping Tips-Fox 43 Morning Show

Here are the tips I shared on the Fox 43 Morning show for a successful Black Friday trip .


1. Set your budget, write down gift ideas. This will help you avoid buying things just because they are a good deal.

2. Do your research– Look through all the Black Friday Ads to find the best prices on the gifts you want this year-noting what time they will be on sale. Make sure you know what time stores open, their price matching policies and return policies. Know how stores will allocate doorbuster deals-by ticket number, by random or just by opening the doors, and if there is a per person limit.

3. Make a plan-Plan your trip around the items you want the most (remember quantities are often limited on Black Friday).  Get any coupons you are going to used organized.

4.Be prepared. Carry ads with you (especially if you’re going to a store that price-matches). Dress comfortably and  in layers. Bring some snacks, you will avoid wasting time and money in food lines. Have a plan to organize your receipts as you go. Be prepared to wait in long lines.

5. Bring a Friend. Once in the store you can head to different departments to help each other get all the deals on your lists.

6.  After Black Friday & Cyber Monday-take the week off. As far as shopping goes anyway! You will see more deals the first two weeks of December then sales tend to quiet down. Last minute shoppers will not find as many deals.

 

Cyber Monday

1. Set your budget, write down gift ideas. This will help you avoid buying things just because they are a good deal.

2.Purchase only through trusted/familiar sites.  If a deal looks to good to be true it probably is.

3.Make sure you have signed up for money back sites like Ebates or ShopAtHome.com. These will give you money back for purchases made online!

4. Check  for coupon codes. There are several sites, like retailmenot.com, that aggregate online coupon codes. Do a quick search there before checking out.
