‘Tis the season to shop our best Black Friday Deals & Steals! * And, if we can amaze Santa, we’re pretty sure you will be amazed, too! Before we unwrap our featured deals, take a minute to read our top three shopping tips to help you make the most of your Black Friday and holiday shopping.
Tip #1: Stick to your list
First, make a list and check it twice! It is easy to get caught up in the festive gift-giving frenzy! Making a list and sticking to it will help you focus on the gifts you need and avoid compulsive buying. Overspending on unplanned gifts and last-minute purchases can be a serious problem for many shoppers. By planning ahead and setting spending limits, you’ll be able to enjoy the holiday season without the dreaded holiday budget hangover and credit card debt.
Tip #2: Do your homework
Second, be a smart Santa and do your homework! Compare current prices with Black Friday sale prices to see if the advertised discount is legitimate. According to the Kiplinger Report, many large retailers use a variety of tricky sales tactics to lure shoppers into paying more and buying cheaper quality products on Black Friday. These include marking discounts off the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) instead of the regular store price to make the discounts appear deeper and selling last year’s models as new. Also, Business Insider reported that some big-box retailers manufacture electronics and televisions specifically for Black Friday and are of lower quality. So, do your homework and stay away from deals that sound too good to be true.
Tip #3: Skip the crowds and shop online
And third, Black Friday is no longer an in-store only event! Now you can shop Black Friday Deals & Steals at Uncle Dan’s Pawn and Uncle Dan’s Outlet online and on our multi-purpose app, MobilePawn! With MobilePawn, you can shop securely in-app, request a new loan, pay on a layaway, and more! Download MobilePawn on the app store and then call your favorite store for your unique activation code.
