Mobs of people, hours waiting in a line, frantic searching through the store for that one item you wanted. Sound appealing? Of course not. But, if you don’t plan your Black Friday ahead, this will be you! Since I’m a deals fanatic, I’ve compiled a list over the last three years which I use every year to track the Black Friday deals. This cuts down the time I spend in store by roughly 70%, as I know exactly what deals are active and what I want to pursue.
Here, then, are three websites that will allow you to be incredibly efficient on Black Friday.
Dealnews – The Black Friday section of one of my favorite deal sites is up and running. Sort by stores, categories, and hottest deals. Dealnews already has a bunch of leaked sales ads, including for Best Buy, CVS, Macy’s, and Walmart.
Black Friday Ads – The “official” site of Black Friday, bfads.net has the most in-depth coverage of Black Friday. Complete with a wish list that allows you to track what you want (similar in functionality to Amazon’s wishlist)
If you use these websites to plan your attack on Black Friday you should see a decrease in time spent at the stores bteween 30 and 80%.
