How to maneuver through the madness to get the best deals!
It seems like every year the infamous Black Friday sales start earlier and earlier and 2012 is no exception! In fact, many companies have begun to not only advertise their fabulous sales to entice our wallets, but some have already put some of those sales in motion! Whether you’re going to be a trooper on the ground scooping sales or an online shopping wizard, there are great deals to be had. If you’re a product junkie like me, you’re in luck because there are bargains everywhere! Here are a few tips to make the most out of the Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday shopping bonanza.
Use the Right Tools
Nowadays, checking out social media sources has become the best way to stay in the loop with all the upcoming sales and promotions. In fact, most companies post their sales or links to ads right on their Facebook and Twitter pages, and many even offer special codes and discounts to their loyal fans. There’s no better way to broadcast to millions of people at once. If you have a favorite brand or product, make sure you’re signed up for their newsletters, "Like" their Facebook pages and follow them on Twitter and Instagram to stay on top of the sales first.
My favorite resource for the scoop on Black Friday product shopping is Derby City Naturals blog. Every year they feature the sales and discounts from some of the top natural hair brands on the market. You can check back frequently to stay updated!
