Black Friday 2018: When to Shop

First things first- let’s answer the most important question; when is the best time to shop for the best deals? Many people believe Black Friday, or the week of, is when you get the lowest prices. 

That may be true but according to ABC News, that is risky because there are so many pre- Black Friday deals that by the time Black Friday rolls around the item you want may be out of stock or there may be limited quantities.

Truth is if you see what you want at a great price grab it now; it’s better to have what you need at a good price than miss out and have nothing at all. Besides, some stores will even honor the cheaper price and refund you the difference.
