Break out the shoulder pads and helmets…Black Friday is amongst us!

So I have always found it comical that only in America, the day after we celebrate what we are thankful for we stand in long lines and fight one another to get that extra 30 % off. I can’t say that i have ever joined in on the black Friday festivities ( i get anxiety in large crowds) but i definitely partake in the online deals! I don’t know if you guys knew this, ( i just found out and thought i ought to spread the word) but a lot of these “deals” you think your getting aren’t really what they are cracked up to be.


When buying electronics a lot of these manufacturers will make TV’s just for black Friday, in which case the TV’s aren’t up to the standard of the full price ones, such as low resolution, or lack features that the other models have. Sure your getting a TV for half the price, but also with half the parts. Sounds like a scam if you ask me!!

Unfortunately when it comes to black Friday, apparel and accessories are ranked low on the list of good deals, saving you only a whopping 7%. Macy’s having the highest saving ranking at 63%, and offers the same deals online with free shipping with purchase of $50 or more. If you can get the same deals online without the hassle of the lines and crowds, why not? We took the liberty of hunting some of the best online and in store deals for apparel, including some extra discount codes! Happy Shopping!
