Tip #65: Don’t Impulse Buy on Black Friday!

There are 65 days until Black Friday 2011 and we’re counting them down with money saving and holiday shopping tips.

Today’s Tip:

Don’t Impulse Buy!

It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment on Black Friday, and buy things you wouldn’t buy normally, because they seem like a good deal. Just because the store flyer says it is a great deal, doesn’t mean it is.

Today’s tip is to help you avoid those impulse buys!

Research any item over $50 before you head to the store. Read product reviews online, seek out coupon codes, discounts, and free shipping offers! Compare offers and know what you’re getting for your money. Check out what various stores include with your purchase such as cables, accessories, installation, etc.

If you find something for a great price, don’t buy one for everyone on your list. Buy it only if you’re confident the recipient is going to love it, use it, and be happy to receive it.

There will be plenty of other deals out there, so if you’re questioning the item or feeling uneasy about it, it’s best to let the deal pass.
