Black Friday will soon be upon us. Are you prepared?

Sorry Mom, but Black Friday may have some of the best single deals of the year for certain products, but for others, you’re better off shopping on Cyber Monday or any other day of the year for that matter. Many businesses use Black Friday sale concepts as a means for getting you in the door, where you’re more likely to actually spend your hard-earned money. Don’t believe all the hype!
