Deal Diva: How to shop for Black Friday

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - You probably won't make it to your second helping of pumpkin pie before the stores start opening on Thanksgiving Day, but before you spend, Deal Diva, Christel Bell offers to advice to help keep your Black Friday savings in check. 
   
Start Early. 

These days Black Friday shopping doesn't consist of just checking the Sunday circulars. Many retailers have already put their sales and doorbusters deals online. Also, it's not a bad idea to check out the retail stores that you really want shop during Black Friday, before the holiday. Customers might find some of the sales and deals are already in effect.

Find many Black Friday ads for large retailers here.

For example, according to some consumer sites, Sears loyal customers can take advantage of all deal features in Sears' Black Friday ad, four days before the holiday. The store is hosting an exclusive event for its Shop Your Way Members. The "Members Private Night" is on Sunday, November 20 from 6 p.m to 10 p.m. at all Sears stores. 

Do Your Homework. 

Compare prices, and study the ads in print and online, the weekend before Black Friday. Online retailers are constantly changing deals up until the event so you can check them regularly and use sites like Fat Wallet, Pricegrabber.com, and Pricewatch.com to make sure you are getting the best savings. 

Shop Small.

Don't limit yourself to the ads and online deals of big retail store. Be sure to check out the smaller stores for the deals and offer. Lexi Havinga, Manager at the popular clothing store, Windsor, says they are waiting for their customers to come in and take advantage of the savings. 

"Our whole store will be 20% off all day, and then we have the first 50 customers prior to open, will receive a free $20 gift card," said Havinga. 

Create a budget and stick to it. 

This is really important. Create a budget and stick to it. It sounds easy but sometimes, when you see a deal, that's really a steal, it maybe hard to resist. Consumer experts say keep in mind, the specials and doorbusters, are limited quantities, and for the retailers it's all about getting you in the store. Make sure you decide ahead of time how much you want to spend, and try to resist the impulse buying.
