In-store shopping

What is a doorbuster?

Doorbusters are deep deals and low-priced products available for a tight window of time, such as when doors are flung open first thing in the morning. However, according to Mark LoCastro of DealNews, the majority of doorbuster deals can be found online at a similar (or even cheaper!) price.

Top 3 tips to stay alive when shopping at a Black Friday Doorbuster

1. Be aware of who and what is around you.

You’re likely to encounter some aggressive shoppers. And they’re easy to spot: red-faced, loud, even antagonistic with other shoppers. Put distance between you and them.

2. Avoid getting stuck in the middle of a pack.

If a store hasn’t committed to orderly lines before a doorbuster, chances are higher for a large crowd stampede. Stay calm — and stay on your feet — to avoid being pushed or shoved.

3. Shop comfortably online.

Stay far away from the crush of manic shoppers in your bathrobe while cupping your tea. Many retailers offer the same deals online as they do in stores.

Other shopping safety tips:

  • Use credit over cash so that your money is safe from pickpockets in a crowded store.
  • Make sure your phone is fully charged so that you can phone your coordinates.
  • Be cautious in parking lots, watching for other cars and pedestrians.
  • Store shopping and gift bags out of sight in your trunk.
  • Keep your purse zipped and close to your body.
  • Designate a meeting spot if you’re shopping with others.

What time does Black Friday start?

Most stores unfold Black Friday in the early morning. But it’s increasingly common for stores to launch even earlier — as you’re still taking in Turkey on Thursday. If you’re looking to purchase from an international retailer, you might have to wait until opening hours in that store’s home country.

When do Black Friday sales end?

Black Friday sales typically extend beyond the big day and into the weekend that follows. And yet more stores slide their sales online well beyond the weekend. If you’re worried you’ve missed out on something, it’s always good to double check which stores are extending their sales in the list above.

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday is the online cousin of Black Friday, created to persuade people to shop online — back when that wasn’t such a thang. Last year shoppers spent a record $3.07 billion. This year’s sales are expected to blow that amount out of the water.

Which stores are closed on Thanksgiving day?

I know: it’s crazy. But many stores opt out of Black Friday altogether, including this mix of top and not-so-known brands.

Top tips for getting the most out of Black Friday

  • Research early and often. Some stores post deals as early as Halloween, so sign up for notifications from your favorites. And keep an eye out for early-bird deals.
  • Make sure your retailer ships to your address. Always a good one to check before you get excited over a deal.
  • Shop around. You might find a better deal elsewhere. For example, Apple notoriously offers mediocre Black Friday deals, while competitors sell new or refurbished Apple products at bigger discounts.
  • Don’t get too caught up in “bargains.” Some of the best deals involve new TVs. But even if you buy one at a delicious discount, it could come with higher shipping costs that eat into any savings, depending on where you buy it.
  • Avoid shipping charges. Don’t lose your savings by paying too much to send it your way. Shopping in stores is one way to avoid paying postage. But if you prefer to shop online, some merchants waive shipping fees over a specified total.
  • Make a budget — and stick to it. Don’t blow your budget on items you don’t need simply because they’re on sale. Consider using your debit card or cash to stay within your means.
