Save the date and a bulk of your next paycheque! Black Friday is happening on November 29, and Cyber Monday is December 2 this year.
Even if you don’t celebrate American Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday can be something we can all be thankful for.
Check our tips below to get the most out of the discounts, stay financially solvent, and stress-free!
Do your research
Got the shopping bug? Now’s the time to make a wish list: all the stuff you'd like to try, buy, or stock up on. And of course, gifts for others!
Check against your wish list to see if the brands or products you like are having a Black Friday sale. We are two weeks out from holiday shopping, so take this time to scour the Internet for possible retailers.

Assess your budget
With its steep discounts, Black Friday is the harbinger of holiday spending. And the holidays are pricey.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or your loved ones, make sure that you don't overspend because the deep discounts are practically saving you money. Buy what you feel comfortable with since debt hangovers are the worst!
Look into cashback to save more money. If you're online shopping, check sites like Rakuten for cashback on your items!
Stay hydrated and have a game plan!
Whether you're going out and having to elbow people at the malls or you're staying in and getting your credit card at the ready, be ready.
Especially for online sales, things can sell out quickly. Have a game plan on what you want to buy, what is nice to have, and what can fall away with no regrets.
If you're braving the crowds, keep your cool and patience. Especially with harried retail staff and while you vie for a parking spot! And bring lots of water to stay hydrated!
