It was one of Amazon’s best deals, ever:
A shiny brand-new 4k TV… $700 off.
This upcoming Black Friday, there will be even more deals like this. And if you know what you’re doing, you can save thousands on very nice products. Honestly, this Black Friday, you could upgrade your entire life.
So, let’s break down how to do it.
All The Best Deals Are Limited
The truth is, if you don’t plan for Black Friday, you won’t get the best deals. The best deals are highly limited in stock and are first come, first serve. You’ll find if you take Black Friday seriously, and follow the steps in this article, you’ll be able to save far more than you ever imagined possible.
Figure Out What You Want
Can you think of 5 items you’d really like to be on sale this Black Friday? Write down the first five items that come to mind.
Now, all throughout this upcoming week, I want you to keep your eye open. Whenever you find something you’d love to save money on, write it down. It’s eye opening to see how many new ideas you get in one week.
By starting now, you’re able to really relax into the idea of saving big. And you can figure out what you really want. It’s a lot better than going out and “looking” for deals day of. (Because you will almost never find the best deals in broad daylight.)
Explore The Best Products In Each Category
Once you know what you want, here’s where it gets fun. Now you’re going to do some shopping. But you’re not going to buy anything.
So, let’s say you want a brand-new TV. Well, some TVs are better than others. And like the TV that was $700 off, on Black Friday, sometimes you really can get the best for cheap. So go online and browse around.
If you’re up to it, go to the store and test a few TVs out. Get the details and specifications. Decide on one you like. Then write down the brand name. Do this with all the items you really want.
Figure Out The Black Friday Policy Of The Brand
Once you have your brand names, go to Google. Type in the brand name and item name (if you know it) and “black Friday”. For example, “LG 4k tv black Friday”.
If there are a lot of articles and videos about past deals, there’s a good chance it will be on sale again this year.
We recommend you choose 4-5 brands for each of the products you want. So if you want a tv, do LG, Samsung, Philips, Vizeo, etc.
Save Each Website
As you’re doing your brand research, try and find the product on more than one retailer. For example, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Goodegg, Google Shopping, Best Buy. Find the item wherever you can.
Then, keep a bookmark folder called “Black Friday deals”. Bookmark each page you visit with the item. That way, when Black Friday comes, you can quickly check each website, and buy the one that has the best deal.
Check In The Weeks Leading Up
Many of the items you want will go on sale before Black Friday. We recommend checking your bookmarks regularly, especially as it gets closer. Also, Google the brands and “Black Friday” again. Usually news will come out leading up to Black Friday if that particular item will see a major reduction.
Take It To The Next Level With Smartphone Apps
With the right apps, you can compare even more retailers together at the same time. With some apps, you can even get Black Friday “leaks”, which actually show you deals before they happen.
Here are the top two we recommend:
