Spending years building e-commerce stores has provided great insight into how to “game the system” of Black Friday. Here’s how to approach hunting for the best deals.
First, check your prices early. A lot of retailers like to hike their prices before they discount. Don’t get fooled.
Next, shop around with a few retailers. Just because you found a great deal on one site doesn’t mean they’re getting beat out by another, smaller retailer. Search and search!
Last, make sure to visit deal aggregator sites like SlickDeals on the big day. These sites make finding hidden gems much easier.
