Are you planning on Black Friday Shopping this year? Well, you may want to check out some of the previews available in order to plot out your adventure. Head on over to Black Friday and check out what they have scouted out so far. As it gets closer to the actual day, there will be more and more information available.
My thoughts, I braved the early morning last year at Walmart and ToysRus. It was my first year participating in an early morning Black Friday run, and I will tell you it was my last! It was complete craziness! I did score some good deals but I also did not get half of the items I set out to get. If you are looking for big ticket items and electronics, obviously those are the most popular items and the hardest to get. Also, there are many retailers that will be offering exceptional deals online. In fact, last year I found that Walmart had several of their door-buster deals also online (this was after I got up at 4am, trekked into town, braved the crowds and headed home at 7am!).
It turns out that Walmart will be taking a different approach this year to Black Friday to try to calm the crowds. Walmart will open at 6am on Thanksgiving day and stay open until late Friday night. The hope is that the 24 hour approach will make for less of a rush. Also, for the big ticket items, a line will be formed and the items will be distributed starting at 5am Friday until the stock runs out. Thanks to Coupons, Deals and More for finding this information!
What is your experience with Black Friday? Will you be heading out this year?
