DealDash’s Black Friday Tips: Find the Best Deals

Another Black Friday is almost here, and I’m ready to shop! Here are some tips that I have picked up over the years I would like to share.

As the holiday season approaches, shoppers gear up for two of the biggest sale events of the year: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. While both of these fun days promise great deals, they each have distinct advantages. This depends on what you’re shopping for, of course! Understanding the nuances of these shopping holidays can help you snag the best deals. Read on for some super shopping tips and tricks from DealDash.

Black Friday: The Traditional Shopping Extravaganza

Black Friday, falling on the day after Thanksgiving, is a time-honored tradition of retail frenzy. Originally an in-store event, it has expanded to include online deals. However, the best bargains are often still found physically in stores. And oftentimes, there are very limited numbers of the best items.

  • Electronics and Big-Ticket Items: Black Friday is renowned for substantial discounts on electronics like TVs, laptops, gaming consoles, and smartphones. It’s also the day to look for significant savings on appliances and other big-ticket items.
  • In-Store Doorbusters: Many retailers offer doorbuster deals with dramatic discounts on specific items. These are typically available in limited quantities and are designed to draw shoppers into the store.
  • Clothing and Beauty Products: Clothing retailers often offer store-wide discounts, making it a great time to refresh your wardrobe. Beauty products, from high-end brands to drugstore lines, see significant markdowns.
  • Toys and Games: Big box stores always have tons of deals on toys for kids of all ages, from baby to teen. No matter what your kid, grandkid, or nibling is hoping for this year, you are sure to find a great deal on toys on Black Friday.

Cyber Monday: The Online Shopping Haven

Cyber Monday takes place on the Monday following Black Friday and is exclusively an online event. It’s ideal for those who prefer to avoid the crowds and shop from the comfort of their home.

  • Tech Deals Continue: While Black Friday is king for tech deals, Cyber Monday often features similar discounts, especially for smaller electronics like tablets, smartphones, and smart home devices.
  • Online-Only Retailers and Niche Products: Online giants like Amazon and niche e-commerce sites often save their best deals for Cyber Monday. This day is also great for finding deals on subscription services, digital goods, and online courses.
  • Travel and Experiential Deals: Cyber Monday is an excellent time for discounts on travel bookings, including flights, hotels, and vacation packages. Cyber Monday is an excellent day to book a cruise – you can sometimes find discounts of up to 50%, in addition to getting extra perks such as on-board credits, free wi-fi packages, drink packages, and even specialty dining.
