Shopping trends

I was always inclined towards online shopping because of the obvious reasons: it takes less effort, it's easier to search, newsletters with offers come to you and the gadgets are delivered at home, and last yeas stats prove that everyone is 'driving' in the same direction.

Online shopping dillemas

Things are easier but that doesn't mean that everybody knows what to do when it comes to online shopping, and things are not better when it comes to get the best deals during Black Friday online shopping. In this hub I'll try an explain what's the best strategy to ensure you won't but an expensive product that's being offered at a better price by another shop.

Where to check for deals

First you have to be a little bit aggressive, as passive actions strategies are not going to work here. You have to subscribe first to big shops like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg then do the same at Dell, HP, Sony and wherever you've seen good deals in the past years. Make sure you subscribe to their newsletters as they'll announce you when crazy deals are on. All you have to do after that is wait for good stuff to come to you.

Next step is search for digital coupons. Do so by searching google for "coupons website", "coupons aggregator" or "coupon X", where X is the name of the brand you're targetting. Check the validity of those coupons.

The third and last thing to do is subscribe to sites like Gizmodo, Engadget, Cnet, CrunchGear that post special offers on their website once in that periods (not only Black Friday) where special events affect prices.

That's it. Success in your shopping endeavors and hope you get the best of this Black Friday.
