10 Strategic Black Friday Tips

In your rush to find those bargains, and this year promises to be the Black Friday of all Black Fridays. Most deals are legitimate bargains, and the best way to ensure a deal is a deal is to know the prices of the items you wish to purchase.

This way you know when a sale sticker has just been added to an ordinary priced item. Also, specials known as Doorbusters are few and far between. A doorbuster is essentially a deeply discounted product and in reality is only a small percentage to the rest of the store inventory advertised on sale. Doing your homework means you can recognize a real deal.

Discounts are often inflated and may be misleading, judge the value of a product based on the sale price and how it compares with the item’s price at other stores.

Read the fine print, know the stores return policy, it will save you a lot of frustration should you wish to return any purchases.

Always keep your till slip, with the rise of counterfeit product available, retailers are inundated with chancers wishing to return or change size of product, your till slip proves your purchase from an authentic retailer – they will assist you.
