How to Find the Best Black Friday 2018 Deals

Check Social Media

Start your Black Friday shopping as early in the day as possible by going to social-media sites like Twitter and Facebook to see which stores are offering deals on the items on your list. Searching for hashtags like #blackfriday or #blackfridaydeals will bring up merchants and products, as well as individual shoppers who are checking in to show off the big scores they’ve snagged either online or in-store.

Shop In-Store If You Must

Although shopping online on Black Friday is optimal because you won’t have to fight crowds or drive endlessly around the mall trying to find a parking space, you may still want to see an item in person before buying it. Don’t worry: You can still get Cash Back! Simply visit the Rakuten In-Store Cash Back page, find the offers you like and link them to the credit card on your account before you venture out. You can also use the Rakuten app on your mobile device to link offers while you’re in the store. If possible, link the offers to every merchant you’re considering buying from that offers In-Store Cash Back so you’re covered in case you go to several stores. And the best part? You don’t need to present anything to the salesperson. Just use the credit card linked to your account at the time of purchase!

Scope Out Backup Gifts

Whether you’re doing your Black Friday shopping online or in-store, look for extra gifts to keep on hand for the holidays. If you’re shopping online, you may see a BOGO (buy one, get one free) item or other specially priced add-on items for purchase, such as jewelry, accessories, cosmetics and other gift-worthy possibilities. If you’re doing your Black Friday shopping in-store, investigate the discount bins near the checkout lanes for recently released DVDs, boxed chocolates and other small gifts that are suitable for everyone.

Know the Return Policies

During all the excitement of Black Friday, you still have to consider that you or your gift recipients may need to return an item. It behooves you to check each store’s return policy — which is usually on its FAQ page — before you buy.
