With only four days until Black Friday you should probably begin planning your strategies now. I've researched and gathered a few apps that will help guide you as you save money, shop for deals, and fight the crowds on the shopping holiday! Or, like many people, stay indoors and relax Friday, knowing that there will be plenty of deals available for those shoppers that prefer to shop online on Cyber Monday.
TGI Black Friday
This app organizes deals by products and stores in a well designed, simple layout. Create your shopping list by selecting the items you may be interested in so you're prepared for your shopping excursion. The app has categories listed by what's popular, the newest ads released and coupons that may help you save even more money.
Slickdeals is an app that allows deal-savvy members to find then share deals with other shoppers. Appropriately so, there's a Black Friday edition of the app (you can download both apps for even more deals!) The app works across a wide variety of products and by showing ad scans of big retailers. You can search for deals by category or stores, or view the discussion panel to see what the community has to say and what offers they're recommending.
Another option for deal seeking allows users to search for deals, scan released ads for items of interest, and view products by category. Each app I've looked at has different ways of displaying the details of the offers, and I value the look of this app's design. Take a look through some of the screen shots below to compare.
I'm not sure who Brad is, but I like this app! This app will prepare you for Black Friday, but also, they have a News tab that announces rumors of deals starting as early as tonight! SN: I'm checking on Express' deals as soon as I wrap up this post! As with the other above mentioned apps, you can view ads, search deals by store or category, and save your favorite product sales to remind you what to head out for while you're shopping.
