Here are some handy tips to help you navigate around the chaos that is Black Friday.

  1. Sign up for emails to your favorite stores to know what deals they will be offering.
  2. Make a shopping list, putting the things you need the most at the top.
  3. Have backup items that you want to get in case the store is out of what you originally planned on purchasing.
  4. Shop with a friend so you have company, plus extra help.
  5. Price check your items as you get them to see if they are cheaper anywhere else. You can do this by using the Amazon app and scanning the barcode with your phone.
  6. Plan your shopping trip. Think about what area you want to go to shop as well as the stores.
  7. Check the prices of the item you want before Black Friday to see if the deals will be better that day.
  8. Shop for other events while Black Friday shopping, like getting a gift for somebody’s birthday.
  9. Do not wear the colors of the workers’ shirts to where you are going. For example, do not wear red to Target.
  10. Start shopping early to ensure you get what you want.
  11. Have a budget, so you do not overspend.
  12. Remember that not everything is really a deal, so do your research.
  13. Know the return policy for your items, just in case.
  14. Talk to people in line to get more information on deals, plus you get to make new friends.
  15. When buying electronic goods/electronic-related goods, compare it to low-priced stores first, like Walmart.
  16. Do not settle for anything less than 40% off.
