How to be Successful on Black Friday 2017

1. Get familiar with the Black Friday ads.

It's not too early to search online now for some of the 2017 Black Friday ads. Get ahead of the game check out the best deals out there. This will allow for you to plan the stores you want to go to on Black Friday and not waste time going to a store that doesn't have a deal you want.

2. Start shopping the day of Thanksgiving.

Black Friday has become it's very own season and spans to more than just 1 day now. You can find some of the best deals during the week of Black Friday, but pay attention to Thanksgiving day. It has become a trend that stores are opening their doors on Turkey Day, so be sure to check out the deals listed on Thanksgiving too.

3. Know when its best to shop in a store or online

Make no mistake, Black Friday can bring large crowds to stores, especially stores in higher congested areas. They will most likely draw larger crowds that are seeking deals that are just too good to pass up. If the busy crowds aren't for you, you may consider opting out and shopping online on Cyber Monday. 

4. Draft your "in the store" game plan

Create a list of items you are shopping for and which stores will have these items. Also, know the hours that these particular stores will be open because most likely the hours will be different due to the holiday. Pay attention to the specifics of the deals you are interested in, some deals only last during certain times of the day.
