Black Friday Shopping Tips

To get the most out of Black Friday shoe sales, tech sales, apparel sales, and more, here are a few tips as you check off your shopping list.

  • Tip #1: Make a plan—and a budget. Given that Black Friday delivers some of the biggest sales of the year, there’s a lot to take advantage of! We recommend narrowing down your top items and creating a budget, so you can get what you need while staying within your means.
  • Tip #2:Start early & follow your favorite brands in advance. Companies are increasingly starting their Black Friday sales earlier—sometimes days or even weeks before the big day. Be the first to get exclusive deals and VIP access to your favorite brands by signing up for text or email alerts to help you take advantage of their best deals.
  • Tip #3: Buy those big-ticket items. Black Friday is a fantastic time to invest in more expensive items—like a mattress, TV, gaming consoles, or other tools or electronics. If there is a big-ticket item you need, Black Friday or Cyber Monday might be the perfect time to pull the plug.
  • Tip #4: Use the “price match method.” Did you know that many of your favorite Black Friday stops will price match their items with other stores? Take the printed or digital ad with you, and if it is the exact same item on sale at the same time, stores will often price match on the spot, so you don’t have to make as many stops.
  • Tip #5: Shop online for doorbusters. Black Friday deals happen online more and more, so you can skip the lines and shop from the comfort of your home. Many of these Black Friday shoe deals or apparel deals or tech deals are still time-sensitive, and many other shoppers will be on the website with you, so we recommend logging on early.

No matter which activity you want to do in your life, KURU has a shoe for you that will give you the support, comfort and style that your feet need to get through the holiday season.
