Top 10 Black Friday Shopping Tips for 2017

But everybody knows there's only one good reason to snap out of that glorious food hangover Thanksgiving weekend is to scope out the best Cyber Monday deals on Amazon in advance, so when the sales go live, you can be ahead of the curve. But the fine print below the deal revealed that there were approximately only four available per store.

Black Friday deals may seem like they can not be missed, but the disheartening nature of the shopping experience and the availability of alternatives should convince people to stay home.

In 2015, we got a sense for how limited that could be when Sears plastered a Kenmore Elite washer and dryer on the front page of its Black Friday ad, with the promise of 51% off on the pair.

It's never too early to start planning for Black Friday. "There's also speculation on some Black Friday websites about other retailers yet to announce", said online shopping expert Brent Shelton. Meanwhile, Amazon.com opened its contract with Black Friday on November 1.

57 per cent of all deals purchased between 12am - 4.30am being video games consoles, games and tablets.
