I have never ventured out to stores on Black Friday morning, but I will browse the hundreds of deals online.
These deals started weeks ago and will go all the way through Christmas…but I personally stick to Amazon.
Besides for the obvious charitable reasons (Hello Amazon Smile), I make sure to use my Chase Freedom card.
Besides for the standard 1% cash back on all purchases, this time of year Amazon gets an added 5% cash back.
Tie that together with good deals, you get things you need at great prices.
But notice I said there “Get things you need” which is a very important part of Black Friday and Cyber Monday that people forget.
If you buy something that you don’t really need, just because it was on sale, then you are wasting your money!!! (Regardless how good a deal you got.)
Not to say that I don’t buy them anyways…this is as much a reminder to me as it is to my readers 🙂
