I know many of you will be gearing up to find the most amazing deals you have all year on the upcoming Black Friday sales. BUT, if you are a hard-core black Friday shopper, you may want to be aware of the items that won’t be hot deals to add to your wish list.
Here they are:
3. Holiday Decorations – always get these after the holidays when they are on clearance!
4. Chocolates & Flowers (Their debut is still a few months away in February)
5. Newly-Developed, High-End Tech
6. Vacation Packages
7. Second-Hand Gaming Consoles
8. Major appliances – the deals won’t be as good in 2019 as they were in 2018 because of some new tariffs
9. Fitness Equipment & Gym Memberships
10. Winter Gear and Clothing – wait until later in the season when stores what to start adding Spring items to their floors and they discount winter clothing prices.
11. Jewelry – Sales get better in December and then again in February. Although December sales are typically better than Febrauary sales, so you may want to shop for Valentine’s Day in December.
12. Be wary of deals that say “Black Friday Exclusive models” as they may just be sub-par models and stores are trying to sell them with a “Black Friday” deal attached to them when they may not be such a great product.
You can read all of the details why these are no-no’s over here.
As for me and Black Friday – I will be home, cuddled in my jammies, avoiding the crowds like the plague, and searching online for great deals. The idea of waking up at the crack of dawn, to wait in the cold, for a good deal that I’m used to getting all year round – is NOT my idea of a good time. 😉 Those of you who are with me, come and join my HOT Online Deals Facebook group where I’ll be sharing what I find!
