Avoid Hassle on Black Friday

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and commonly thought of as the busiest day of the year for shopping and the start of the traditional holiday shopping season in the United States. This year, Black Friday falls on 28th November, 2008. Black Friday is considered the first day of the holiday shopping season. Black Friday has been considered the first day of the year retailers are "black" (profitable). Black Friday is so named because it was historically when stores turned a profit.

It has been anticipated that consumers will be up at the crack of dawn again this Black Friday in search of shopping bargains as they become savvier about their annual holiday purchases. For the casual shopper, you can use our search feature to search for the cheapest price for an item throughout all stores, create a shopping list and generally plan your entire Black Friday shopping experience a good week or two in advance. Forget all those big store lines seen the other day for Black Friday. The way to shop wiser these days is visit to browse through the offers and deals. This way, you can stroll into the store an hour or so before the Black Friday sale ends, make your way to the refrigerators or washing machines and walk out with some of the big name Black Friday items such as CompUSA, Amazon, Walmart and others with (hopefully) little hassle.

Black Friday is great for a person with a budget. The increased volume of shoppers buying non-discounted items makes Black Friday profitable for retailers even though they do not make much profit on deeply discounted merchandise. Marketing studies have shown that many Black Friday shoppers will buy other merchandise from stores in which they planned to visit to purchase advertised items.
