Top 10 Black Friday Shopping Tips for 2017

When it comes to holiday shopping the Connecticut Better Business Bureau said consumers need to comparison shop — and not get swept up in the deluge of Black Friday “sales” — to make sure they aren’t getting a raw deal

Samsung 50-inch 4K TV is $549.99 (35% off) TV manufacturers always try to outdo one another with deals over the holiday shopping season, but this screen from Samsung is already an eye-catching bargain as it's 35% off its regular retail price.

Some retailers like Amazon.co.uk will most likely release Black Friday deals to their VIP members first, so it's worth signing up to receive their emails.

This year, retailers have been extra aggressive launching their Black Friday sales at the start of the month.

As mentioned, in tandem now, are massive advertising engines and networks touting Black Friday and Christmas sales online. For more details on specific retailers participating in the special offer, visit Ebates.com.

Good 4K TV and Gaming Deals - This is the year where 4K TV prices are expected to shine during Black Friday.

Black Friday is a day that many shoppers live for, and the Better Business Bureau's past experience tells us that all deals are not created equal. Prior to around 2013, most of the top Black Friday doorbusters were in-store only and not available until Friday morning.

Still, by some estimates the number of shoppers who went online to make purchases a year ago was larger than the number who went to stores and bought items in person. However, beware about some of these products, as companies produce bulk products, which are meant to be sold only on Black Friday, and aren't always of the same quality (even if it is a brand name). Blurring occurs when traders have attracted the attention of consumers earlier, hoping to earn more sales during the key season of the year.

Special Deals: Best Buy will offer free shipping on all orders with no minimum from until December 25.

Although 40% of shoppers procrastinate and shop on Christmas Eve, December 24 is the least popular of the big shopping days, Offers.com noted.

Unfortunately for thrill-seeking shoppers, not only is Black Friday losing its zest statistic-wise, it is also losing popularity because of how insane it has become.

They also conform that if you see the offer on their website, they will honour it in their stores too. You may even want to ask yourself if you really need the item. Make sure that the discount is not 20 percent off the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, which is rarely the price merchants charge. Then be sure to check out Target on Cyber Monday because you can bet there will be lots of toys on sale. Before you pick your favorite site, the BBB recommends that consumers find a reputable site and check them out at BBB.org. Online deals reach their peak on Cyber Monday, which falls on 27 November.

If you change your mind about something you buy, it's important that you know where you stand in the eyes of the law.
