Shop carefully for best 'Black Friday' deals

Black Friday falls on November 24 in Australia. Some stores including department giants Kogan and Ebay have already kicked off their sales

But UK retailers have jumped on the bandwagon in recent years thanks to the likes of Amazon and Wal-Mart-owned Asda, so bargain-hunters over here get the chance at some festive deals.

"For some retailers such as Kohl's or Amazon, Black Friday starts the Monday of Thanksgiving week, so it's really just creeping earlier and earlier", Vincent said.

According to a new survey from Washington State University's Carson College of Business, almost 65 percent of Pacific Northwest residents are planning to skip Black Friday this year.

It's estimated that 90 per cent of consumers will purchase online at some point, during Black Friday/Cyber Monday and at other times. Black Friday hours will vary by location.

Check the ads, check the competition, and check the flyers, both online and what shows up at the door.

Black Friday shopping enthusiasts are scoping out ads and prepping to grab the best deals, but the first step is figuring out which of your favorite stores will be open when. Additionally, nearly half (44 percent) revealed that they plan to camp out to get the best deals on laptops (22 percent), TVs (21 percent) and housewares (20 percent). If you're shopping in-store during the sales event be patient with staff who will be dealing with an increased number of shoppers. Keep all your purchases in your trunk, or covered with a blanket (you could invite Thieves otherwise). Maybe you are doing finger exercises for all the nimble cursor work necessary for online shopping.

Some savings will be for lesser-known retailers who may not be Google approved, so always check that you're purchasing from a safe site. (To create a secret board, just flip the "Secret" toggle while creating a normal Pinterest board.) You can even invite others to pin items to your secret board. Find the best deal on the specific product you're looking for.

With careful planning and a smart strategy, you can save tons of money on things like fashion, electronics (a new smartphone, anybody?), and even household items such as furniture, sheets and more.

On Black Friday and December 23, the retailers saw an average of 182 percent and 146 percent of normal daily revenue, respectively. These days, however, it's a season that starts as early as Halloween.

Cabela's - 8 a.m.to 6 p.m. Jesus Christ Penney said he would begin his online sale of Black Friday the day before his Thanksgiving.

John Lewis will be joining the Black Friday discounts bonanza this year by offering cheap deals across their range. While these head-turning deals were created to get your attention, many of them require that you read the fine print.

Check advertisements' terms and conditions - Some sale items may only be available in limited quantities or during certain hours of the day.
