Retailers already have been giving us sneak peaks of their Black Friday deals. You can start making your list and checking it twice for the best buys, or download one of these free mobile apps that track prices and help you comparison shop, including for doorbuster deals.
Some Black Friday deals are not as good as they sound.
Here’s a list of what not to buy on Black Friday.
BlackFriday.com: The Black Friday 2015 Ad Alerts app is our top choice, since updates in real time as new deals are added. The app and the website include more than 200 retailers.
Deal News: Another year-round destination for deals, with a special Black Friday App that lets you allows you to create a shopping list and save your favorite ads. Plus, you can share deals with friends, to help plan strategic splitting-up bargain hunting.
TGI Black Friday: Instead of searching the ads, this app give you instant notifications when new ads are posted, and also lets you shop items from the ads online, and compare prices by store or category.
BlackFriday by BradsDeals: Another year-round deal site with a Black Friday-specific app, which keeps tabs on deep discounts at 100 top retailers. This app transforms mobile-unfriendly circulars into an itemized list of products, so if you want to see the actual store circular with all the details, this app is not for you.
RedLaser: Another must-have app for shopping, this is a barcode scanner and QR reader that lets you see the price of an item that is not marked. Click here for the Android version. Click here for the Apple version.
