It’s one of the busiest shopping days of the year and retailers are answering the call by hyping up their Black Friday deals weeks ahead of the traditional holiday shopping kickoff.
Walmart already released its Black Friday circular on its website and mobile apps. They're offering
1-hour guarantees for certain items and starting sales at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving night.
Retailers are further embracing technology to help get consumers be prepared. Macy's is updating its app to offer customers special unadvertised deals while shopping. It will even help you find your way to discounts inside the store.
Many other stores like Toys'R'Us are using Facebook and Twitter to shout out holiday must haves and discounts.
Black Friday Deal Finder, collects the sale items from a slew of stores in one app. The app lets you create lists and compare deals.
The BlackFriday.com website pulls all of the circulars together for you in one place, even ones that aren't officially released.
Another tip to remember when you’re shopping is to keep your receipts. Many stores are going to war over price matching - which means you could get some money back if another store or even in some cases online retailer sells it for a lesser price.
