Spending my Fuel Rewards Savings
Now that I have been saving for a while with Fuel Rewards®, I would love to share a few things that we are doing with our money to make our week a little more...
When Black Friday rolls around your credit cards are ready to get a workout. It is very important, however, to know which items to buy. There are some things that you definitely want to take advantage of on the biggest shopping day of the year. These items tend to come with great deals that you will not get at any other time of the year. Here is a quick look at the best of the best:
1. Video Games
You can often find the newest games discounted quite a bit, but the games that are slightly older are where the bargains are. Look at the games that have been out for a couple of months. You can find prices that are as much as $20 to $25 less than the norm. This is true for all game consoles. Now, the consoles themselves are often not discounted that much, so keep your focus on the games.
2. Kitchen Items
Cookware, small appliances, utensils and dish sets can usually be found at great prices. You will want the check the boxes to ensure that all of the pieces and parts are in there, but in most cases you can get a steal. Whether you need a gift for a friend or family member or just need some new things yourself, this is the time to buy these items.
The main reason people get out of bed on Black Friday morning is for major deals on toys. You can find just about every toy on the market for a lower price. For example, the season's hottest toys can be found for significantly less than normal. You can also find classic toys like Legos at an impressive discount. Shop around and if you expect to get your hands on the hottest toys of the season, you will need to get out to the stores immediately when they open.
4. Limited Edition Clothes
Many winter clothing items will not be at a great price on Black Friday, but limited edition lines and items usually will be. For example, you may find a new line of cashmere sweaters for 50 percent off or more. It is all about knowing where to look. Stores like Target that offer limited lines will usually have a major sale on at least one of them. You can also check various big name online retailers to see what they are offering in terms of sale clothing.
