Kick off the holiday shopping season with the best tips and tricks from Rakuten’s retail experts. We’re telling you all that it takes to get geared up and excited to shop the biggest deals and promos during this shopping extravaganza that we call Black Friday 2020!

How to Get the Best Savings During Black Friday 2020

1. Make a Shopping List

Don’t stress yourself out while Black Friday shopping by not knowing what to buy. Instead of wasting precious time during your online or in-store adventures, create a shopping list before Black Friday and include things to buy for yourself and your gift recipients. This way, you can also ask your loved ones if they have a wish list, making it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for when it’s time to confront the Black Friday madness. Think about gifts for your kids, significant other, parents, in-laws and friends and family. Consider stocking stuffers for the people who make your busy life easier – your dog walker, kids’ teachers, hair stylist and everyone else.

2. Set a Firm Budget

Be a smart shopper and give yourself a budget for all the holiday shopping you’re about to do. Believe it or not, you can have a nice holiday and give thoughtful gifts without going broke! With Rakuten, we’ll make sure you save some big bucks with Cash Back, promo codes and the latest information about Black Friday sales. After all, the best way to save some green is to cap the green!

3. Scope Out Your Favorite Retailers Ahead of Time

The beauty of this shopping event is that you can access Black Friday 2020 ad scans before the big day, helping you find the best discounts, free shipping deals or gift-with-purchase promotions that will be offered. If you have absolutely no idea what to get your friends and family, now is the time to do research – not during the hustle and bustle of Black Friday. Bookmark the products on your browser, so you can quickly add them to your shopping cart when the time comes. Smart Shopper tip: Black Friday 2020 sales will likely start sooner this year – potentially as soon as October – so familiarize yourself with all the pre-Black Friday details to get the best prices plus Cash Back on every purchase from Rakuten.

4. Download the Rakuten Cash Back Button and App

Let’s face it – Black Friday 2020 is going to be big and slightly different, so you need to be prepared. Luckily, Rakuten makes it super easy to activate Cash Back and apply Black Friday coupons and discounts with one click.

5. Shop Early

Black Friday 2020 is going to look a bit different, but that doesn’t mean the sales and deals will be any less impressive, especially online. Retailers are eager to clear their inventory shelves this year, and you get to take advantage with earlier, bigger and better sales that will be starting soon.
