Taking the first deal you see
The beauty of Black Friday is that every store is competing to get you through their doors, so don’t make your final purchase at the first store you visit. If there are other stores nearby that have similar products, head there before making any purchases, or use a price comparison app to make sure you’ve ID’d the source of the best value. Watch out for these 13 things deal sites won’t tell you.
Not downloading price comparison apps
Sure, you could shlep from store to store or mall to mall—or you could look at your smartphone for two minutes. Price comparison apps offer the easiest way to price-check items on the spot. Download one or two and refer to them before you make any purchase. Remember: Just because something is less expensive doesn’t mean you should buy it. If you have to go well out of our way or pay expensive shipping online, a slightly higher price may be a better value.
