On November 27th, Don’t Get Too Caught Up in All the Hoopla!

Black Friday has become such a huge part of the American culture that some people get more excited about the sweet deals that they consider are well worth spending their money on than about Thanksgiving dinner. If you’re one of those eager shoppers who are happily chomping at the bit to get the best products for cheap, know that not all flashy price tags are as awesome as they appear.

Although Black Friday can be extremely overwhelming, those who aren’t careful can find themselves throwing their money into useless items or deals that aren’t worth their while. To avoid this, it’s best to step back, think things over, and not get too caught up in all the hoopla.


What Are the Top 5 Things that You Shouldn’t Buy on Black Friday?

The last thing you want is to empty your bank account for stuff that you don’t even want or need. If you find it difficult to tell the difference between an amazing deal and a dud, check out these items that you shouldn’t buy on Black Friday.

1. Jewelry

You might want to think twice before purchasing those diamond studs on a Black Friday sale. Bear in mind that the biggest discounts aren’t offered during this time of the year. While you may see tempting ads that feature big discounts, you’ll be disappointed to find out that they only apply to limited selections that aren’t as stylish as you hoped they would be. A savvy shopper would shop for jewelry in March or when the jewelry business is slow.

2. Watches

A watch is another luxury item that you shouldn’t be buying on Black Friday. The steep discounts may seem to be enticing, but you’d be better off waiting for December. The closer it gets to Christmas, the better the deals will be.

3. Exercise equipment

Hold your horses before you swipe your plastic for a treadmill or an elliptical! You could get those big-ticket items for more than a 15% discount during Black Friday. However, if you wait until December rolls in, you can get those items at much lower prices! You’ll be glad to see bigger discounts for a wider selection of fitness gear.

4. Gift cards

Don’t even think about getting one of those gift cards that are right by the store register during a Black Friday sale. If you want to purchase your favorite gift cards for a fraction of the price, it’s best to wait until December. As we creep closer to Christmas, that $100 iTunes gift card you’ve been planning to get could only cost you $70.

5. Winter apparel

If you’re interested in significant savings, don’t buy winter clothing or accessories on Black Friday. Decide to hold off on making this purchase unless it’s an absolute must. It pays to wait until the last week of December to get yourself some wool hats, slippers, flannel pajamas, sweaters, and other holiday apparel.
