Black Friday 2012: The Essential Black Friday Survival Guide Helps You Come Out On Top
 
 

If you’re a bargain hunter, you know that Black Friday is one of the best times of the year to find great deals and discounts on everything from toys to TVs. If you plan things right, you can get your family’s entire shopping list crossed off in one night and save hundreds on your final bill at the same time.

Getting the most out of Black Friday takes careful preparation. Lines can be long and crowds can be large—before you go, you need to know where to go, what to bring, and what you’re going to buy. With that in mind, here are a few tips for surviving the Black Friday frenzy and snagging that great deal:

  • Come prepared with what you need – Black Friday shopping can be long and tiring. Be sure that you have everything you need to power through the night and take advantage of the best prices:
    • Smartphone – Be sure to bring your smartphone with you so you can whip it out to do some quick comparison shopping, if needed. It’s also an essential tool for keeping in contact with other members of your group and for keeping entertained while standing in line.
    • Caffeine – With many stores opening their doors at midnight or before, you likely won’t get much sleep this night. Be sure to bring caffeine in the form of energy drinks or coffee, along with snacks for when your stomach growls.
    • Fanny pack – Yes, this accessory is as unstylish as they come, but it allows for maximum grabbing power (you won’t have your hands full with a purse), easy access to all your supplies, and added security against pickpockets in large crowds. Just deal with the gaucheness for one day.
    • Sneakers – The right footwear is essential. Wear something that’s low, comfortable, and made for sprinting (just in case).

    • Know what you’re getting – Check out the ads and leaked deals and make a game plan for what you’re going to purchase. Prioritize that list so you know which items are essential to your holiday shopping and which ones can wait until later. Once you’re in the store, don’t get distracted by anything—head straight for whatever it is that you hope to pick up.

    • Be there at opening time – If you can be there when the doors open for Black Friday shoppers, you’ll usually get the best prices and the best selection. With some stores set to open Thanksgiving evening, others at midnight, and still others in the early a.m., it’s possible to get to multiple store opening events in one night.

    • Have a backup – Sometimes Black Friday shopping just doesn’t go your way. If the item you were hoping to purchase is no longer in stock when you get to the store, be sure to have a backup plan. Can you buy it online? Is there another model that will work?

      • Decide whether or not to bring the kids – If your kids are under the age of 10, it’s best to leave them at home, but if your kids are old enough to shop by themselves, they may actually be a big help on Black Friday. Consider dividing and conquering to cover more area and grab more deals. Just be sure that everyone knows what the plan is and where to meet after the shopping is done.
