If you like to save money, but don’t enjoy the Black Friday in-store crowds, don’t worry there are Black Friday online sales. In fact, most times you can save MORE online than you can in the store. 🙂 Here are some tips to help you get the most out of shopping online.

Love a good Black Friday deal, but not the crowds? Check out these tips to maximize your savings while avoiding the crowded stores!

5 Tips to Save More Money on Black Friday Online Sales:

1. Stack coupon codes.

Oftentimes, there are A LOT of coupon codes you can stack with each other to save the most money and get free shipping. For example, you can stack up to three coupon codes together at Kohl’s, two coupon codes plus your RedCard at Target, and many other stores do the same thing!

When you stack coupon codes, you can save more and not have to deal with the crowds {introverts secretly got excited right there! 😉 }. Search our database to find coupon codes to your favorite stores. 

2. Sign up for rewards programs.

You need to sign up with rewards programs like Shop Your Way, Amazon Prime, Ebates, and Top Cashback BEFORE the big shopping days. These will give you cash back, free points towards purchases, free shipping, and more! You can combine these with coupon codes to save more!

3. Shop early.

You can save MORE money if you shop the deals early. For example, Kohl’s always has pre-Black Friday Deals that start on Sunday night/Monday morning during the week of Thanksgiving. Once Kohl’s starts their pre-Black Friday deals, the rest of the stores follow and soon there are HUGE savings before Black Friday even starts! These are where I find the BEST deals!

In fact, Kohl’s is notorious for having FREE small appliances (after rebates and Kohl’s cash) four days before Black Friday, and Kmart and Sears end up having freebies (after Shop Your Way Reward Points)! It pays to shop early.

4. Look at shipping costs.

Most of the time you can snag FREE shipping; however, if you’re scoring an item for $10 rather than $50 and have to pay $5 for shipping, it’s still a HUGE savings and is great! You have to think of the shipping charges as gas money you didn’t have to pay, crowds you didn’t have to deal with, etc. Additionally, you can consider going in with a friend to get your order to the minimum $50, so neither one of you has to pay shipping.

Don’t forget, these stores offer FREE shipping:

You can also choose FREE in-store pick up for many stores! I have done this before and have had my husband pick up the order on the way home. It saves me time and gas from having to go to the store, and it saves my sanity from not having to stand in the long lines. Here is a list of stores that offer free in store pick up. 

5. Follow me on social media.

I post A LOT of deals. You can follow me on Twitter here, Pinterest here, and Facebook here. You can also join this Facebook group here where you can ask questions, get help finding the lowest price on a gift, and more!
