Some practical Black Friday adviceDon't let Black Friday drive you crazy. Here's some advice for the pragmatic shopper in all of us.
This is CNET and here's what you need to know for Black Friday. If you're still under the impression that Black Friday deals can only be had in store and in person, you may wanna turn off that 3 AM alarm clock. The vast majority of sales are also available online, too, due to the sheer volume of traffic online retailers receive. Last year roughly 70% of the in store deals also made their way online at some point, so you may want to avoid the crowds this year and stay indoors. Historically electronics have the best sales on Black Friday so if you're in the market for items in other departments you're wiser to wait. TVs, video games and other gadgets get the most significant discounts so be sure to prioritize. But if you must go out and brave the elements and other shoppers. The best advice is still be earlier, the better. Stores that offer specialty sales in person are likely limited to just a handful of purchases. Find the one big ticket item and be sure to be one of the first in line. But before warn, plenty of shoppers are willing to arrive and line up at stores before the sunrises. So you'll need to be also. [MUSIC] You can stay up do date with the latest by downloading the CNET Tech Today app, in the Apple App Store. [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO]
