Adapting to the holiday season means a lot of shopping in the coming days. So many offers can be made on this year's biggest shopping day, if you are willing to drop the Black Friday crowds after enjoying a gut bust. Thankfully, many retailers offer deals the days before and after the big day, so you can start shopping when planning Thanksgiving dinner.
With daily offers offered by some large box stores, it may be a good idea to sign up for their email alerts so you don't miss out. And depending on where you shop, you can add 5-10% to your savings if you apply for a store credit card, plus discount in some stores available for active military and veterans. It is more shrill in your wallet people.
Don't beam if you'd rather spend a few days melting while the Black Friday chaos begins. There's always Cyber Monday anyway. Anyway, think of your 2020 projects as you look for deep discounts during shopping pleasure. We looked around the internet and searched various websites that have done ad scans to check prices at major retailers. Ad scans show 201
If you are considering an upgrade to your kitchen or laundry, you want to monitor stores such as Lowe's, Home Depot and Best Buy. You can find kitchen packages with name tags with refrigerators, assortment, microwave and dishwashers, sometimes including smart versions of these appliances. Packaged packages like these can come to serious declines sometimes with a total savings of $ 1000 or more. A washing machine can also save big money, especially when you combine available discounts and calculate the extra energy and water savings from more efficient machines.
Here is a look at some of Home Depot's 2016 Black Friday Appliance offers.
Of course, you don't need to take a package deal to save big. Resellers are fighting for your business, so you see discounts on large appliances up to 40% off, with even a single 50% off discovered as a daily deal. With stores that offer price match guarantees, you will definitely find something that fits your budget. Keep in mind that some retailers are happy to follow this policy, but others make it more difficult. Save receipts and be aware of fine style with regard to the store's policy so that you can discover the restrictions that can prevent you from getting your money back. Often retailers only price items of an exact match and will not honor any variation, and just to confuse things even more, some of them will not match an item already offered at a deep discount, e.g. something you bought on approval or as a Black Friday deal. Go figure.
If you miss Black Friday, don't panic. You are not completely closed. Many of the same retailers offer great deals on other weekends like Memorial Day and President's Day, so relax. You will still get that project done.
Maybe the upgrade you are looking for is focused on smart things like coffee maker, robot vacuum, microwave and toaster. Several stores are looking for your business such as Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and Walmart. Take a look at Kohl's as well, as they offer $ 10 for every $ 50 you spend, so it's like getting paid for shopping!
We love robotic vacuum, and this one at Bed Bath & Beyond is just a little (okay, maybe many ) extra. It's not cheap, but they offer a price match promise and free shipping.
But you don't have to go out for a robotic vacuum, especially if you don't have a lot of room to clean. It never hurts to check Amazon for even cheaper vacuum deals so you can save your money and spend them elsewhere.
Fixtures for Kitchen and Bath
Your kitchen or bathroom renovation would not be complete without new fixtures. Choose a water-saving shower head or steam bath. Or for the kitchen, a touchless faucet or traditional two handles. You may want to stick to big box stores, there will probably be more options to help you complete your project.
Update Your Floor
If you want to follow the 2020 floor trends, or just need to update your 1970s orange linoleum, now is the time to check out your options. Home Depot and Lowe's are the usual suspects for flooring, but specialty stores like Lumber Liquidators are a good place to look for savings. As of this writing, LL had sales of wood floors and bamboo floors up to 40% on selected styles and up to 29% off waterproof floors.
Tools and Garden Supplies
In addition to Home Depot and Lowe's, find discounts on these items at Amazon.com and Walmart. Or if you prefer to shop on Small Business Saturday instead of Black Friday, go to your locally owned Ace hardware to give them your business. They offer free shipping on orders over $ 50 (in participating stores), the same brands as the big guys and friendly service.
We found this at Ace for $ 99.99, and this handy dandy set at Wal-Mart for just $ 30.97!
Upgrade to smart devices? Then you are probably looking for a smart assistant to facilitate home automation such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home Hub. These devices respond to voice commands and go far beyond asking them to play music by interacting with your appliances, your thermostat, and even your lights. The devices you want it to interact with will determine what kind of assistant you get.
We found them at Target from a very reasonable $ 49 for the Google Home Mini with Smart Assistant, to $ 149 and above for other devices including Amazon Echo Plus (2nd generation.)
If you look forward to risk your sanity by chasing the door constructions on Thanksgiving tonight, more power to you! The world needs risk takers like you. If you'd rather sit and watch a Twilight Zone marathon after dinner, we'll hear you. No matter what type of shopper you are, you are sure to find a store right for you.
