The biggest shopping holidays - Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner. Are you excited like us?
If you haven't already marked your calendar, this year Cyber Monday falls on December 2nd, three days after Black Friday.
With that in mind, are you ready to make the most out of these shopping events? Lucky we have some smart shopping tips that will help you find the best deals under your budget! (Plus, we have a hidden treat for you! Read on to find it).
Follow Deals Prior Black Friday
If you want to score great deals, start by checking out sites before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Do your research so when the sales start, you are well prepared and won't be overwhelmed by irrelevant offers. You can follow deals by the name of the brand or type of product you’re looking for. Some websites offer Black Friday deals in advance around Thanksgiving.
If you have a lot of shopping to do on the holidays, spend some time on Google to search for the best possible deals the week before Cyber Monday.
Make a List Before the Sale Starts
Online shopping on Black Friday can be great if you know what you’re looking for. Make a shopping list well before the sales start. This will help you with easy research of the products from different online sites, so you can get a good deal from advertising hype. This will also help you to stay on a budget, if you have one.

Compare the Deals on Different Sites
Many online stores are claiming to offer the best Black Friday deals around. Many times, brands boast “80 percent off,” but 80 percent off what? So, to be clear about the offer, do some research about where you can get the best deals on your favorite items.
