Black Friday

Black Friday is a great time to make a dent in your Christmas shopping and save some money. 

With so many sales and stores offering extra incentives to get you shopping, it can be a little daunting trying to find the best deal. 

Knowing what you want to buy and how much your willing to spend is half the battle.  

The other part is doing your homework before you leave home.  

Check the flyers, work out the numbers and have a game plan.  

I wanted to give you a few examples of how I approach sales like Black Friday.

I'm comparing Walmart, Target, London Drugs and Canadian Tire flyers.

IPAD MINI 16 GB 

Target deal -  $279 with $60 Target Gift Card

Walmart - $228 with $20 Walmart Gift Card

Looking at these sales it seems that Walmart is cheaper at $208. But if you have a Target Red Card then you would get $13.95 off, plus the $60 gift card, which makes the Target total price $205.05.

FITBIT FLEX 

Target - $79.99

Walmart - $79.95

London Drugs - $79.99

This is a great price for the FitBit which rarely drops below $99,  but the best deal again is Target with the extra 5% Red Card, making the final price $76.

2.0 K300 BREWER KEURIG

Walmart - $88.88

London Drugs - $99.99 with 8 pk Pods (worth $12.99) 

Target - $99.99 with $5 Gift card 

Canadian Tire - $94.99 with $10 gift card

Canadian Tire is the best deal at $84.99 including gift card.

SODASTREAM

Canadian Tire - $67.49

London Drugs - $79.99

Looks like Canadian Tire has the best deal here as well.

Check your local flyers to find all the Black Friday sales. I use the Reebee app to find all the flyers for my area. 

Keep in mind that some of these stores are opening early and rain checks may not be available on all items.  

Happy Shopping!
