Best and Worst Things to Buy on Black Friday
It's the Monday of Thanksgiving week which means you need to have your Black Friday plan ready to go. And to help you with your Black Friday plan, Wallet Hub did a study to find out what stores have the best deals and what items will have the biggest discounts.
In all honesty, it looks like for the most part, it's best to just stay at home and shop with Amazon. And not just to avoid the insane mobs of crowds. Amazon will in general have the best prices over Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The best items to buy on Black Friday are books, movies and music. They'll have the biggest discounts. Next on the list would be video games and toys. Looking to buy jewelry or clothes? You can't wait on those items because the deal isn't that good on Black Friday.
Which stores have the best deals? The biggest markdowns are at Kohl's and JC Penney at 66%. Sears is next at 50% and Macy's has 46%. Amazon's markdowns are at just 37%, but that's off their prices that are usually lower than brick and mortar stores anyway. Plus you don't have to worry about the crowds. So yeah, just stay at home and shop from the crapper.
