Black Friday Planning with Find & Save

Do you have a plan for Black Friday yet? With many stores opening on Thanksgiving, it isn't too surprising that we are having to get our plan together even earlier than usual this year. In previous years, I would be up looking at online deals, not being brave enough to fight the crowd. This year, however, things seem as if they will be different. I may very well have to fight the Black Friday crowd to finish some of my Christmas shopping. Since I know my husband won't have the patience to do too much with me, I know will have to have to get a plan together. For that, there is only one site I know and trust – Find & Save.

So, why do I prefer Find & Save over the Sunday circular? Well, for starters, I can pull up all my local ads right on my iPHone, allowing me to plan for my shopping excursion during breaks or even while my husband is driving. Best of all, I can even make a shopping list and map out the stores I want to visit, allowing me to figure out the best route for getting the best deals fast. As someone who is not used to deal hunting, having something that makes shopping fast and easy seems like a great idea! As well, I can continue to get updates on the best sales throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday!


I also found it fascinating that Find & does such a great job preparing things for Black Friday shoppers. Through their recent infographic, I learned that I'm a night owl. I prefer to be out before 5 am and if need be, I will camp out for something. Granted, it has to be something amazing for me to decide to camp out in the Kentucky cold, but if it is worth our time, my husband I will be both do it!

To learn more about the typical Black Friday shopper and see where you fall, make sure to check out the infographic below. As well, don't forget that Black Friday will be here in a few days, so get planning if you want to get the best deals on Friday morning. Also, don't forget to download Find & Save on your iPhone or iPad so you can browse the current sales and offers in your area for Black Friday. Once you see these deals, you will see why everyone is using Find & Save this holiday season!

    Love the infographic! I definitely fall into the night owl shopper category lol. Avoid the crowds(at least, moreso than morning shopping)!

    last year I used a few apps for my Black Friday strategy. I thank you for this post because Find & Save seems well balanced, organized, and much more user friendly.

    I never go shopping on Black Friday but my daughter goes every year. I am going to share this post with her so she can take advantage of the ease of planning her shopping.

    i've started doing the online shopping recently. too unsteady on my feet now to risk getting pushed in a crowd.

    I did some shopping online a lot easier than the crowds in the shop and will probably hit up Cyber Monday as well.

    I only ever went shopping on Black Friday a few times . It was so so. Now that Im older I let my daughter in law do all the shopping then . She loves it and I dont have to deal with all the hassle . She plans the whole thing out with the store circulars .
