Black Friday. The hype is finally here and it will come and go just like it does every year on the Friday after Thanksgiving. My advice on Black Friday shopping is basically the same year after year. Go to the companies websites that you love and go to their clearance section! The issue with a lot of Black Friday 'deals' is that companies just take their regular priced items and offer a percentage off of those items. So ultimately, the deal isn't as good as if you just went to their clearance section. Most companies offer additional savings on the clearance items on Black Friday, so you won't be able to beat that price during the year!
There are a couple of exceptions to this rule, so I'm outlining my favorite brands below and my thoughts on their sales. I'm also providing the link directly to where to shop. Just click the 12 links below and you'll have everything you need!
Banana Republic - it's worth just going straight to the clearance section for BR. Their deal is just 50% off MSRP. Click here for Banana Republic's clearance section.
Nordstrom Rack - again, straight to the clearance section, you'll find what you want there! Click here for the Nordstrom Rack clearance section.
Saks Off Fifth - are you picking up on the pattern here with the major retailers? If you're too lazy to buy the custom Indochino suit, you can find some good off the rack deals here. Click here for the Saks Off Fifth clearance section.
Alright now that you know what's happening out there, let the shopping continue!
