Black Friday & Cyber Week Shopping Tips!

November 19, 2017

Okay Dolls, you know the best sales are just around the corner!  Are you ready?!  Do you brave the mall or shop online? I’m an online shopper through and through.  You won’t catch me at a mall on Black Friday, unless it’s to sip a latte and people watch (which IS always fun!).  Here are a few tips and tricks to help you navigate your way through the online sales!

 

(That’s my serious shopping face!)

 

Black Friday/Cyber Week Tips and Tricks

Cyber Week

  First of all, did you know it’s no longer Cyber Monday, it’s Cyber Week?!  This year that means special deals the 20th through the 27th.  Online retailers wants to take advantage of the sale excitement and know that a lot of people have extra days off and more time to shop.  As a matter of fact, Thanksgiving Day is getting to be one of the biggest sales days!  People are full of yummy food, on the couch, and checking out the online sales.  From the retailers point of view, why not offer the best deal right then and close the sale, right? That means better deals earlier for us.

The List

  Make a list, check it twice. Hey, Santa knew what he was doing.  Holiday shopping can be like going down a rabbit hole … and every twist and turn seems to take me to something I want for myself!  Anyone else guilty?  Make a list of people you want to buy gifts for and some ideas for each.  And I always buy myself one present too, because … well, do I need a reason?!  And hey, remember this is the perfect time to buy yourself your holiday party clothes.  (Here are my picks for best holiday dresses for my 40 plus babes!)

Your Best Resource

  Check in with your favorite bloggers this week.  Often bloggers get the inside scoop on sales and discount codes and can be your one-stop resource for everything Cyber Week related.  I will be rolling out sales alerts all week long and even created a special tab at the top of the blog just for sale info.  Also, my newsletter subscribers always get the latest sales information the fastest via newsletter, so if you’re not already signed up, sign up here!

What to Buy When

Historically these are the best categories to shop each day:  

Thanksgiving Day – shoes, beauty, kitchen appliances, tools, TVs, cameras 

Black Friday – clothing, toys, Ipads/tablets 

Cyber Monday – laptops, travel
