Your Guide to Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping

It’s officially the time of the year where you withdraw all the money you’ve been saving for these unofficial holidays — Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Amazon Echo will be $30 cheaper? Now is the perfect time to get it. However, it’s important to do your homework and strategize a plan early in order to get the best deals. After all, you want to spend your hard earned money wisely.


Here are 5 ways to help you save money:


1.) Catalogs

Each year, companies such as Target, Best Buy, and Walmart provide an in-store or online shopping catalog for Black Friday. The catalogs are usually 20-30 pages in length, which gives you an overview of what major products in each category will be on sale. With all these catalogs available 2-3 weeks before Black Friday, do your homework and plan early! Mark down the products you want and strategize when and where to get the best deals.



2.) Apps

With our every changing technology, there are applications from the Apple Store or Google Play to help you successfully do Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping. Apps such as Black Friday 2017 Ads Shopping, Cyber Monday 2017 Deals, Flipp and BFAds can help shoppers search for the best deals among different categories. Cyber Monday 2017 Deals, for example, provides online catalogs from different companies so shoppers can easily see what will be on sale.



3.) Emails

Yes, we know you despise those spam emails that give you “friendly reminders” about their deals and promotions. But during the holiday seasons, you may want to take a look a look at those emails sent from your favorite brands. You may be able to find extra deals and promo codes through the promotional emails.



4.) Honey

No, not the edible honey. Honey is a popular online shopping tool that automatically gives you coupons, promo codes, discounts and/or deals right before you complete a purchase. This is useful for consumers who want to purchase an item in its cheapest way possible. The way it works is simple. By adding Honey to Chrome from the website (yes, it’s free!), you will see a tiny icon on top of your browsing pages. All you have to do is click on the icon before you make a purchase and Honey will be there to look for useful promo codes or coupons. Give this tool a try when you do Cyber Monday shopping this year!



5.) Ebates

To further maximize your chance to save the most money on Cyber Monday, give Ebates a try! Ebates is a cashback site that gives you exactly what it says — cashback.
