Some crazies holiday shoppers treat Black Friday like Navy SEAL operatives, poring over sales ads at their kitchen table as they plan their mode of attack.
The good news for the rest of you out there is that you don’t have do much work at all to figure out where to find the best deals this year.
Sites like FatWallet.com already have their digital hands in advance copies of sales ads from big retailers like Macy’s, CVS and BJ’s Wholesalers, and they’ve thrown them up on their site for easy access.
FatWallet’s Black Friday Deal Finder is only in its second year and already has more than 20,000 ads from retailers up on the site with three weeks still to go before Thanksgiving.
The site is super easy to browse and, of course, there’s a handy smartphone app so you can keep all your favourite sales ads at the ready.
I’ve already got my eye on the KitchenAid standing mixer sale at Macy’s ($20 off!).
Once you’ve got your deals “favorited” you can share your list with friends or family via the site or app and coordinate your shopping plans.
“With a single tool, users will be able to search for the best deals by store, product, brand, or price,” says FatWallet COO Ryan Washatka. “There’s no better way to plan your holiday shopping on a budget.”
Well said, Washatka. Well said.
