Black Friday means lots of shopping deals, but the sales have stretched from a single day of bargains into a month-long marathon, so it can be hard to keep up with all the offers out there. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks that help do some of the behind-the-scenes work for you, so you can score the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals around.
- Find and keep track of the deals you want - Set up a Google Alert help you get all the deals on products you want. Just head here and in the “create an alert about” bar, type in a company name or something specific like “Black Friday iPad sale.” Then from the “show options” drop down you can make selections about the results you get.
- Compare store prices - It can be overwhelming trying to compare prices on Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals because so many stores offer them, so the free browser extension PriceBlink can help. It scans more than 4,000 retailers for the best deals on the product you want, and it shows you comparisons, along with shipping costs, so you can make an informed purchase.
