Black Friday may or may not be the best day for holiday shopping deals, either online or in-store
But if you are a hard-core Black Friday shopper, you should add these apps to your smartphone to stay on top of the deals, comparison shop, make lists and more.
Here are our recommendations for the top three for information on best buys.
The Black Friday Ad Alerts app is a must-have resource to keep at your shopping fingertips because it updates in real time as new deals are added, changed or dropped.
The app/site boasts more than 200 retailers and is updated in real time.
If you’re already an online coupon and app lover, you’ve likely heard of Deal News.
The site’s Black Friday App allows you to create a shopping list and save your favorite ads.
Plus, you can share deals with friends, which helps if you have a strategic splitting-up plan.
If you’d rather not go searching the ads and prefer instant notifications when new ads are posted, this app from DealCatcher is a good pick.
You can also shop items from the ads online, and compare prices by store and category.
