The Black Friday Cheat Sheet!
Since many stores are open on Thanksgiving for their Black Friday sales and I usually don't post on Thanksgiving (except for my annual Happy Thanksgiving post), I won't be posting as many Black Friday deals. I cannot keep up with the massive deals that will be going on!
Instead, I decided to create a list of the THE BEST Black Friday deal sites that you must check out before you head out to shop. Consider it a cheat sheet, if you will, of places posting the best deals around.
BlackFriday.com - Many ads have already leaked. At last count, I believe there are currently 21 ads available.
The Black Friday - Not as organized as BlackFriday.com, but you could consider it an alternative if you can't get to BlackFriday.com.
Budget Savvy Diva - She posts more deals than you could shake a stick at. She is also known for posting Black Friday sales constantly, making sure everyone gets a chance to grab the deal.
FatWallet - While they don't show as many deals or ad/scans as other Black Friday-themed websites, they do offer a mobile app for iPads and iPhones where you can interact with the ad/scans they currently have while you're out shopping so you don't miss a deal. (Never saw a price for the app so I assume it's free.)
NerdWallet - They have a FULL LIST of ad scans for stores like Fry's Electronics, Shoe Carnival, Dollar General, and even AAFES (Army Air Force Exchange Service). Be sure to check out their roundups at the bottom of the page!
SlickDeals - Not only do they show ad/scans, they even tell you how many great deals are in each ad/scan! Keep in the mind, though, that there are limited ad/scans for the great deals.
Digital Trends - While they don't have any ad/scans, they have a list of the 10 must-have apps for Black Friday shopping. Some of these may or may not be free. Please double check from installing.
Whether you're shopping on Thursday or Friday, it is always wise to have a game plan (and maybe a small first aid kit).
