Shopping for Deals During the Holidays


Landon Young, Staff Writer

Black Friday is, by most, conceived as a hectic or chaotic day of the year. This year however, many consumers will want to stay home due to social distancing. There are still many ways to get those good Black Friday deals from the comfort of your home.

Lesser known, Cyber Monday, is the Monday following Thanksgiving promoted by online retailers for good deals. This is a very good way to save money, and some companies, this year in particular, are offering online bargains on Black Friday.

Large companies such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Target all partake in Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They can often offer anywhere from 30-50% off from usual retail prices, although stock can be very limited.

When shopping online, other great things to take advantage of are browser extensions. Many trusted extensions such as Eno from Capital One, formerly known as Wikibuy, and Honey will search for coupons that you can use to save money. Happy shopping!
