How to find Deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

How to Find Deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Tomorrow, we enjoy turkey, stuffing and the company of friends and family. And then... the race is on to find amazing deals and start checking off your holiday shopping list! At BeFrugal, we have everything you need to make this season easy, stress-free and light on your wallet.

  • Not sure where to start? We always recommend starting your holiday shopping with a list and a budget. This will keep you on track and help you avoid overspending. If you need gift ideas, check out the many helpful gift guides online, including BeFrugal's gift guide for everyone on your list.
  • Where are the best deals? Well, that depends on what you're looking for... and when you're shopping. Here's a quick list:
    • Electronics: Black Friday is your best bet. The big doorbusters (think TV's, drones, and iPads) can be found at stores like Walmart, Target and Best Buy starting Thanksgiving night. You can also check online if you'd rather not head out into the cold - there will be great deals there, too.
    • Toys: If you have a hot item like Hatchimals on your list, it's best to start looking now! You can even find deal alert sites that will tell you when popular items are back in stock. For other toys, the best prices can actually be found in early to mid-December, as stores try and clear the shelves.
    • Tools: Check stores and the web this weekend on Saturday and Sunday for great deals.
    • Video Games: Cyber Monday will have excellent prices on bundles with consoles and games.
    • Clothing and apparel: Tons of stores will offer excellent prices on clothing, but shopping online on Cyber Monday is likely to get you the best deals. Check Macy's, Kohl's and other stores early that day.
    • Something one-of-kind: Want to find a gift that's a little different? Head out to your local mom-and-pop shops on Small Business Saturday for deals, or check out Etsy on Cyber Monday for some handcrafted gifts.
  • So are coupons and deals the only way to save? That's only the beginning! No matter what day you shop online, always make sure to click through a cash back website like BeFrugal first. You can earn money back on your purchase - even on top of a 50% off deal with free shipping. During the holidays, BeFrugal will have even higher cash back rates at a ton of popular stores - find our Bonus Cash Back offers now.

Happy Shopping!
