Should I shop early or wait for Black Friday sales?

It depends on the item you’re looking for. For example: gaming consoles will likely be the same price now as on Black Friday. Other big-ticket electronics like TVs, laptops and smartphones might keep dropping in price as the month progresses.

Try searching for the retailer’s previous Black Friday offers on similar items to see if you want to hold out for Black Friday or snap up an amazing deal as soon as you see it.

Should I open a new rewards credit card?

If you were thinking of opening a card, now’s a great time to do it. Black Friday and the weeks leading up to it are a prime opportunity to earn points, miles or cash back on your favorite rewards card. And since you’ll be spending a good deal on good deals, November is a great time to shoot for obtaining a card’s welcome offer.

You’ll want to open your new card account ahead of November to get ready for Black Friday deals. Since a card can take days to weeks to arrive after approval, applying for your card a month or so ahead of time can give you the time you need to plan out your spending strategies.

Compare rewards credit cards to find one that best suits your holiday spending needs and offers you the best returns on your spending.
