Black Friday Shopping Tips
10. BEWARE OF REBATES in order to get your “low price.” Kohl’s frequently does this, they advertise a low price but you must pay the higher price at checkout & send in your rebate in order to have your savings rebate mailed to you.
11. Home Depot has amazing deals on appliances & they have larger quantities they are willing to sell at the low prices so you don’t have to be there at the store opening to get your appliance deals the way you do at Sears (who only has a very small limited quantity of their Black Friday advertised appliances.
12. Team up with family & friends because you can’t be in 2 places at the same time. Team work!
