Best Buy Black Friday advice
A lot of people shop Black Friday, so there will be heavy competition for all of the best deals. Prioritize the items you want most and the ones with the largest amount of savings, so you can get to them before they sell out and maximize your savings on Black Friday.
Pay close attention to the dates listed on deals. Black Friday has grown into something of a weeklong affair in recent years, so see if any deals start earlier, and be sure to go for the ones you want as soon as you can
If you pay attention to product reviews, and you know exactly the product you want, make sure to check model numbers when you’re in the store. Black Friday can come with some special models made just for the shopping day, and a 55-inch Sony 4K TV you find on the shelf this Black Friday might not be the same as the one you read all the glowing reviews about.
If you find a Best Buy Black Friday deal you want, try to determine if it will also be online. Competition in stores can make it hard to get in the door and snag the product you want before it sells out, so having the internet as a backup (or even primary) method of getting the product may help you land the deals you’re most excited about.
Check out TechRadar’s Chrome extension to compare the prices you see online with those offers by other retailers. Always make sure you’re getting the best deal, or find back-up retailers in case Best Buy sells out of the product you wanted.
If you plan to shop mostly online, a may help you avoid internet congestion. Too many people going to the same website to get the same deals can result in next to no one actually reaching the page. With a VPN, you can route your traffic to a different region that may not have servers so busy, allowing you to essentially beat the line.
Finally, if you’ve found a deal that you absolutely have to have, don’t sit around. Popular products sell out quickly on Black Friday, so buy what you want before it’s gone.
