This is the best time of the year for shoppers. With all of those amazing deals offered by pretty much every retailer out there, it can be very hard to stay on track with buying only what you initially had on your to-buy list and instead get the urge to make some impulse black Friday buys. If you are someone that gets easily distracted and even having a list doesn’t help, then in this article we will help you harrow down which types of items deserve your attention, and which you should definitely skip on.
You should buy Apple products
Black Friday is a great time for you to get your hands on some Apple products since they have been known to be on some great deals over the past years. Retailers like Target, Walmart and Best buy have had discounts on these products every year for the past few years and some of the previous-generation models seem to be the ones on which you can get the best deals. Some of these offers include price cuts, while others free girt cards with purchase or even a combination of both. This year you should definitely look for black Friday deals on iPhones, iMacs, Apple watches and TV’s and so on, and if Target’s entire add page on Apple products last year is any indication, then it is a pretty good place to start.
Try skipping out on buying Christmas decorations
If you are really in need of new Christmas decorations this year, then we’d suggest that you hold off buying them on black Friday and instead wait for the deals that come up closer to Christmas, since for obvious reasons that’s when their prices are the lowest. For example, in 2016 in the last few days leading up to Christmas Big Lots took off an entire 50% off a selection of different kinds of ornaments and decorations. And since black Friday is the best time of the year to look for amazing deals on electronic devices, why waste your time on decorations.
See if you can find those CD’s, DVD’s or Video games
Sticking with the electronic theme, if you plan on getting a new PS station or X-Box then black Friday is the perfect time for you to look for some deals on DVD’s, CD’s and video games. Just go to any major retailer that carries these items and look for the CD, DVD, video game and Bly-Ray departments and you’ll be sure to find some great offers. For example, in 2016 Best Buy had a great offer for select Blu-ray+DVD+digital titles for only $7.99 each. If you are short on stocking-stuffers, then these are a great thing to use.
Even though a deal seems great it doesn’t mean that you necessarily need it, or that black Friday is the best time for you to get that deal. Some items simply are not worth the hustle on a day as hectic as this, so definitely try to keep this article in mind when going through your shopping list this year.
