USA Today – The biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, is only weeks away (3 weeks, 4 days to be exact), but that doesn’t mean the deals are going away too. According to USA Today, Black Friday is not the only day to receive the best deals and cheapest prices, here is what you can look for while shopping for the Holidays:
Upgrade your football-watching.
Big-screen HDTVs are a bargain now, but look for the cheaper brands to offer bigger savings to attract pre-holiday business. (Top-of-the-line brands typically save their deepest discounts for December.) Go to BestBuy.com to sign up for daily e-mail alerts to find out which HDTVs will be on sale on Black Friday.
Replace your laptop.
If you’re tired of lugging around a 10-pound computer, now is the time to splurge on a lightweight version. Deals include Apple’s Black Friday sale (not huge — typically up to 10% off, but savings nonetheless), and you’ll find even bigger savings at electronics stores as retailers look to clear inventory before January’s new shipments arrive.
Stock up on stocking stuffers.
Do you have an Angry Birds fan in your house? Is your spouse addicted to ’80s movies? Here’s an opportunity to put a smile on their faces come Christmas morning without spending a lot. Retailers often sell Blu-ray discs, video games and similar “doorbuster” items at a loss just to get people in the door. You can find equally good deals online, where sites such as Amazon have offered Blu-rays at a discount of up to 55% in past years.
Sand in line for hours or wait for Cyber-Monday to go shopping, either way the deals will be there for you to save this Holiday season.
