And on November 27 Kmart will open at 6 am and sale will last until midnight of November 28. It means that customers will have 42 hours for amazing shopping! Take an advantage of it and read here to find full working schedule of major retailers.

Don’t Forget to Stay Frugal and Avoid Unnecessary Spending

As we know, some people are real shopaholics and the word “sale” is magical for them. Financial experts advise to plan your expenses ahead and to make a list of must have items. Make up a budget intended especially for Black Friday sales and create conditions which will not allow exceeding it.

Another important point is to be careful with credit cards and loans. If you don’t have enough funds to shop you can always apply for online loans or pay with a credit card. But try to borrow money and use credit products only if it’s necessary. Making a debt is easy but paying it down sometimes is hard.

Use money borrowing options only if you are sure that it is not a problem to repay the loan and make sure that your credit score is high enough to get a good interest rate. Shop wisely because shopping should bring positive emotions. Try to do your best to avoid disappointment concerning making a wrong choice or decision.

Compare Prices and Shop the Deals Only

Use websites which allow prices comparing. Don’t think that if something is on sale then it’s already worth buying. Also, shop the deals only. Choose the best ones and take advantage of them. Some people do a mistake when they try to buy all the Christmas gifts and decorations on Black Friday.

Remember, that your goal is to buy items you really need by record low prices. Follow your shopping list and avoid impulse buy. And of course check return policies. Black Friday is something you should get prepared for. That’s why take your time, check all the necessary information and enjoy the great shopping day.

P.S.: Use only legitimate ways to make money to buy more on Black Friday.
