Disclaimer: This is a post sponsored by Find&Save in order to spread the word about their site for this upcoming Black Friday. I shared this information because I feel it is beneficial to my readers.
Find&Save did a Black Friday Shopping survey to show how, when and why people shop Black Friday.
Have you ever shopped Black Friday? I’ve actually done Black Friday two years in a row, or maybe it’s three. I don’t even remember! But I know for sure the last two I was part of Black Friday.
I was actually one of the first 20 in line at Walmart last year for a TV deal that Max wanted to nab, at the same time he was standing in line for the iPad he wanted. The line took forever (it opened at a certain time, closed at a certain time, and then they started rolling out the TVs!), I think I waited a good 2 1/2 hours just to get him that TV.
I’m the type of Black Friday shopper that will look here at there at deals, and go to whatever store will have what I want. Usually I don’t stand in massive lines, and if something I had ‘wanted’ is no longer available.. I’m not going to go ballistic on any store employees or other costumers. I’ve seen some stressed out people on Black Friday, and for someone who suffers pretty bad anxiety I do my absolute best not to get all worked up over the day!
Based on the info-graphic above I am mostly a Night Owl shopper, as I leave before 5AM, but I tend to not get even half of my Holiday Shopping done on Black Friday.
- While both sets of shoppers are primarily interested in finding a great deal, 40 percent of the Night Owls said they enjoy the competition, vs. 24 percent of the Early Bird shoppers.
I would have to say I don’t really like the competition part, so I’m in the 60% of Night Owls! 😉
This year though, I have Find&Save to help me plan what Black Friday shopping, if any, I do this year that is outside of the house. Find&Save is a great destination for finding and browsing Black Friday sales. You can look at the local circulars, and see everything in one spot! You also are able to go ahead and get all of the local Black Friday circulars send to your email instead of having to attempt to hunt them down on website after website.
You’re also able to get notified of new sales at the stores in your area, and create and save shopping lists for those stores. Browsing through Find&Save I’ve already found two things I’d really like to get for Black Friday if I’m able to!
