Ok, so how do you roll on Black Friday? Are you up hours before the sun in order to get those awesome deals? Or do you kick back at home and do your shopping online? 56% of consumers believe that Black Friday is the day to get the most savings out of all the major winter holiday sale days (source), so the odds are good that you are going to be buying something that day, and for a good price! And whether you are in the stores or just in cyberspace, I’ve got some information that is going to save you even MORE money this November 29th! Here’s how to get instant access to over 500,000 coupons at over 60,000 stores!
For the Brick and Mortar Shoppers
You simply MUST download the RetailMeNot Mobile Coupons App. It is free (see? saving money already!) and it will send automatic alerts to your phone when deals are at nearby malls. It gives you the ability to save coupons and to receive notifications about when they are about to expire. I think this feature is fantastic all year long, as I have thrown away countless great coupons simply because I forgot to use them before they were expired. Additionally, since in-store shoppers need to have a very smart strategy to maximize their time on Black Friday, you may want to save some of those sales that last more than one day for later that weekend and focus your energies on the one day only blowouts.
To use the coupons that you have on your phones in the stores, you just show your phone at checkout and the person ringing you up can either scan the barcode or enter the code provided into their register and BOOM! Savings for you! Nothing to print and remember to fish out of your purse!
For the Online Shoppers
If the “in your jammies” shopping is more your style, I’m right there with you! But you don’t have to wait for Cyber Monday to scoop up some FANTASTIC deals. And you also don’t have to scour the papers and plot your strategy for an hour before shopping. Just do what I do, and head to RetailMeNot to scoop up your coupons. Want a sneak peek of those amazing deals? Check out their constantly updated Black Friday Deals page! I’m dying over here at some of the bargains!
And since great deals are happening every single day online, and not just on Black Friday, can I suggestion that you sign up for RetailMeNot Deal Alerts and their Best of RetailMeNot newsletters, which show you the very best deals across the site each week? RetailMeNot is making it SO easy to save as much money as possible, and for that, I truly love them! 🙂
