If a deal is too good to be true, then it probably is! You’ll see advertisements for massive televisions at unbelievable prices. It’s best to resist the temptation for these TVs; they tend to be made specifically for Black Friday, and are poor in quality.
Expect your typical Black Friday door buster to fall short of your expectations with fewer features, such as a less-than-adequate amount of HDMI slots.
Everyone should have a quality winter coat that will last for several years. Use common sense when it comes to buying winter apparel: Would the best sales happen at the end of November, when there are months of cold yet to come?
Or would coats be flying off the racks in February, when retailers are trying to usher in their spring line? Bargain hunters are better off waiting until early in the new year.
A new phone might be on your loved one's Christmas list, but you probably won't find any amazing deals this time around on Black Friday. In the past, retailers like Target and Best Buy were known for selling smartphones for $0 with a two-year contract. Now that service providers have nearly phased out the traditional two-year contract, those “free” phones are gone. You may get a store gift card with your purchase of a new phone plan, but that’s the only benefit you can expect.
You're better off paying attention to the release date of the phone you want. Non-Apple phones typically grow more affordable in the months following a release. New iPhones are typically cheapest immediately after they have been released. If you're fine with a slightly older model smartphone, buy immediately after a new model has been released.
