Kick off the holiday shopping season with the best tips and tricks from Rakuten’s retail experts. We’re telling you everything it takes to get geared up for the biggest deals and promos during this multi-day extravaganza that we call Black Friday 2019!

How to Get the Best Savings During Black Friday 2019

1. Make a List of Your Gift Recipients

There’s no easier way to stress yourself out while Black Friday shopping than by not knowing what to buy. Instead of wasting precious time during your online or in-store adventures, curate your list of gift recipients before Black Friday. Once you’ve made your list, you can ask your loved ones if they have a wish list, making it easier for you to compile your shopping list. Think about gifts for your kids, significant other, parents, in-laws and close 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 create 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, you’ll save 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 Gifts Ahead of Time

The beauty of this shopping event is that you can access Black Friday 2019 ad scans before the big day, which will help 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 so you can quickly add them to your shopping cart when the time comes. Your kids have probably already told you what they want and your significant other has probably made it obvious what they’re hoping to receive, so familiarize yourself with all the pre-Black Friday details to get the best prices and Cash Back on every purchase from Rakuten.

4. Download the Rakuten Cash Back Button and App

Let’s face it: Black Friday 2019 is going to be big, and 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. You’ll never miss out on Cash Back when you install the Rakuten Cash Back Button on your browser. We’ll remind you to activate Cash Back and coupon codes on every participating merchant’s site.

5. Consider Your Payment Method

To avoid scrambling at the register or on the checkout page with a ticking timer telling you the remaining minutes before your products are removed from your cart, decide ahead of time how you will pay for your Black Friday purchases. Get the most out of your credit cards by choosing the ones that offer rebates, frequent-flier miles and other perks.
