Black Friday Survival Guide

Black Friday Survival Guide

Black Friday is just around the corner but this season is different. Paychecks are seeing BILLIONS of items out of stock… And the cost of everyday goods are going up, way up, as inflation hits a 30-year high!

As a matter of fact, prices are expected to increase at least through the end of the year. So, there’s a good chance that better prices are not headed our way soon. So, now could be the time to  strike while the iron is hot! 🔥🔨

Here’s the Five Fast Facts you need to know about some of the hottest Black Friday gifts of 2021:

📺📡New TV season is now! - It's true, the average cost of a new TV is higher now than anytime in the last nine years, but the best TVs are still getting deep discounts! Here's a list of some of the best on the market. So, if you see the TV that you need.. go for it!!!

🎮📀Video Games are not playing around this year - If you plan on buying the Xbox Series X or the PlayStation 5 then get one ASAP (if you can find one). For the PS5, Sony has started a registration portal to buy direct and to combat the price scavengers. You’re probably more likely to get your hands on the Nintendo Switch.

💻📱Chromebook time! - The ongoing chip shortage means fewer computers and smartphones on the market. But not the good ol’ Chromebook! They were overproduced for the surge of remote school learning and work-from-home folks. Look out for big discounts on Chromebook laptops.

🚳🚲I want to ride my bicycle!!! Unfortunately, increased demand, part shortages, and other issues have jacked up prices and thinned the ranks of quality options for new bikes. Don’t expect discounts on bicycles but do keep your eyes peeled for biking accessories that may be discounted.

🏠🧹Household Appliances - Certain kitchen equipment, like stand mixers, are probably going to be out of stock but items like cordless stick vacuums, robot vacuums, and appliances are always hot items on Black Friday.

🔥Bottom line: The Black Friday sales you’ve come to expect are still happening, but you’ll need to look a little harder to find real bargains on items that are actually worth the money. So, take all the current discount ads with a grain of salt. 🧂
