The Black Friday shopping season is here, and as you may have heard, Black Friday is no longer a one-day event, but a season of savings. I’m Nafisa, Flipp’s Chief Deals Officer, and if you’re as excited to save as I am, get ready because I’m giving you the inside scoop so you can be a Black Friday Insider with Flipp. I’ll be going over what you can expect this Black Friday season, plus a couple of tips and tricks to help you plan ahead and most importantly, SAVE!
Black Friday Is Happening Now
“But, Nafisa, it’s only October!” I know, I know, but that’s what makes you an Insider. I’m here to tell you that deals have already started to pop up. I know what you’re thinking, it’s too early, but trust me, if you want to get ahead in your shopping and saving, you won’t want to skip these Pre-Black Friday deals. Walmart’s Black Friday ad has already dropped in the U.S, so we expect other retailers across the country to follow suit very, very soon. Most people don’t even know these deals have dropped, and that gives you, the Insider, an early advantage. More deals will start popping up in the coming weeks leading up to November 26th, so make sure you have the Flipp app within arm’s reach to be the first to know.
Black Friday Is an In-Store and Online Holiday
Last year retailers saw a huge success with a combination of in-store and online deals, and this year is no different. Whether you prefer to shop in-store or online, there will be something for everyone. Be sure to use the Flipp app to see which stores have deals in-store and online.
What Shoppers Are Looking For
Black Friday is traditionally known for deals on big-ticket items, but this year it’s all about utility and convenience. Most shoppers are looking to save on casual clothing, shoes, and day-to-day electronics like laptops and tablets. Retailers are well aware that our needs have changed, so we can expect huge savings on fashion, beauty, electronics, big and small kitchen appliances, and items for the home. Of course, you’ll still see those big-ticket deals you’re used to, but now there will be more options for all kinds of shoppers.
How to Get Ahead of the Game
You don’t have to do any intense research or planning to get ahead. All you have to do is download the free Flipp app and take advantage of all its handy features. We’ll have a dedicated Black Friday section on the app soon where we’ll highlight and showcase all the Black Friday-related flyers/ads, so be on the lookout for that. Another thing that will help you get a head-start is to create your wish list, or as we like to call it, Watch List on the app. This feature lets you set up deal alerts for specific items, and you will get notified as soon as a deal drops. I’ll go into more detail about Watch List in a later post, so stay tuned!
The main takeaway? Black Friday is here, there are more deals to choose from and if you want to stay on top of those deals and be a Black Friday Insider, download Flipp this holiday season to help keep you informed, stay up-to-date on deals, and save money.
