Top 10 Black Friday Shopping Tips for 2017

Black Friday shoppers

Best Buy has offered more than a dozen Black Friday jobs earlier this year, but this year also contributed to the quick access to hundreds of black Friday promotions from iPad Mini to 4K TV and Beats Studio 2 Wireless Headphones.

Fifty-eight percent of young adults said they prefer shopping on Black Friday, the traditionally in-store shopping holiday, while 42 percent said they favor Cyber Monday, which is usually tied to online shopping for the holidays. 2017 will be no exception. Last year, a NerdWallet study found that some stores inflated the amount of certain Black Friday discounts to make deals appear better than they actually were.

All the big retailers will be getting in on the act, but expect massive discounts from the biggest players including Amazon, Currys, John Lewis, Argos, Tesco and Very to name but a few. CR has already weighed in on the Black Friday deals at Best Buy, Costco, Dell, BJ's, Target, and Walmart. For a third year in a row, it will be closing its 151 stores on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Black Friday deals may seem like they can not be missed, but the disheartening nature of the shopping experience and the availability of alternatives should convince people to stay home.

Online sales comprised 9.4 percent of total retail sales in the fourth quarter of 2016, up from 8.7 percent during the same three-month period the previous year, according to government figures. Customers made a staggering 18 transactions a second at peak times during the day and 75 per cent of all visits were from mobile and tablet devices.

The consumer co-op says it will process no online orders on Friday, but will pay all 12,000 employees (even hourly workers) for their time, and encourage everyone to delay their holiday shopping frenzy an extra day and instead spend it outside.

The shopping bonanza will last all weekend, and is followed by Black Friday's online equivalent Cyber Monday on November 27.

Thanksgiving/Black Friday hours: Stores open from 5 p.m. Thanksgiving Day through 11 p.m.
