We reached out to retail experts for their advice. Here’s what they recommend:

  1. Shop early for better deals. 
    Beverly Harzog, consumer finance analyst at U.S. News & World Report, says that “If you’re willing to go out on Thanksgiving night or at midnight, you’ll get first crack at unadvertised items as well as popular items with deep discounts.”
  2. Compare deals across stores and historically.
    In our deals research, we noticed items like KitchenAid mixers that are on sale at many different stores. Harzog recommends using shopping apps that have built-in price comparison tools. It’s also worth checking sites like CamelCamelCamel to make sure the deal you’re getting is actually a deal compared to the historic price of the item in question.
  3. Shop for out of season goods.
    Jared Smith, a digital marketing and retail expert at January Digital, recommends checking clearance sections for out of season clothes. You’ll look great once spring rolls around, and your wallet will thank you.
  4. Follow your favorite stores online.
    If you’re getting email newsletters and/or social media updates, you’ll be among the first to know about promotions. Meghan Fox of Raise, an online gift card platform, points out that some stores send out exclusive deals through these channels.
  5. Only buy things you really want or need.
    It can be tempting to buy something just because it’s heavily discounted, but resist the temptation. Smith says to stick to items you’ve researched and really want and essential consumable goods that you know you’ll need. Buying on Black Friday and Cyber Monday can save you money and future trips to the store.
  6. Make sure the reviews you’re reading are legitimate.
    Customer reviews of a product can be a valuable source of unbiased information. They can also be hijacked by the less than scrupulous to make something seem more or less popular than it really is. Fakespot is a website (and browser extension and smartphone app) that will tell you if the Amazon reviews you’re reading are trustworthy. It’s a great tool, especially for big purchases.
