Black Friday ads require analyzing and careful reading as many deals come with a catch. If you miss the catch, you probably are going to spend your money for something that is not really worth it.
In this article, we are going to show you how to read the ads properly and get the most out of them.
Black Friday is just around the corner, meaning stores will soon release their Black Friday ads over the next few days. In order to be properly prepared for November 24 and take advantage of the best deals and promotions, here is what you need to do:
➔ Read carefully
As we already said, the Black Friday deals usually come with a certain catch. In order to notice the catch, you need to read the Black Friday advertisements as carefully as possible. For example, if you are looking for some special deals and huge discounts, look for the specifics of that deal or promotion such as how long the promotion will last, when does the sale begin, is the product available online, in-store or both, is the product available in limited quantities, and etc. By reading carefully and checking the specifics you will be able to get an idea of how early you need to wake up on November 24 and how close you need to be in front of the line to purchase the product you want.
➔ Look through all the pages
Even though retailers and merchants love to hype their best deals on the first few pages of their Black Friday ads, we highly recommend you to look through all the pages. In order to get a sense of the entire selection of promotions and deals, you need to go through the entire ad. By doing so, you will ensure you don’t miss out on a coupon or a special deal. Usually, the back pages include information about the deals, for example, how long the promotion will last and other information.
➔ Shop smart
Keep in mind that some Black Friday deals are not as straightforward or valuable as they might seem. For example, sometimes stores or retailers offer gift cards with a purchase, instead of discounted products. Sometimes, the discounted prices can only be used after your mail in a rebate form, meaning you will be paying more and get your money back later. There are stores who use this trend such as Kohl’s and others.
➔ Bring the ad with you
All experienced shoppers know that you can’t shop for Black Friday unprepared. So, if you want to shop as a pro, don’t forget to bring the ads with you. If the Black Friday ad contains coupons, you will have the coupons with you as well. There are many retailers who offer coupons that you can use to get additional discounts on top of what is already on a sale.
➔ Collect several Black Friday ads
Collect as many Black Friday ads as possible so you can compare prices before deciding which brand or store you are going to visit. We highly recommend you to follow the social media pages of your favorite brands in case an information about a certain deal pops up. You can also sign up for a mailing list and get a notification with the newest Black Friday deals.
