Black Friday is swiftly approaching, meaning that many are suiting up for the battle in the sales aisles of many popular stores. If you would prefer to avoid long lines and vicious crowds, then you may want to consider staying home and shopping online, reports CNN.
In light of the slowly recovering economy, retailers are adding even more sales than in previous holiday seasons. However, in addition to offering specials in their stores, many merchants are reaching out to their online followers to provide them with fantastic web-based deals.
"This Black Friday, I would like to stay in the comfort of my bedroom possibly online bargain shopping for maybe a table and some things to decorate my new apartment," Kaitlynn Blyth, who in previous years has waited outside stores for hours on the shopping holiday, told the news source.
Among the stores that are offering deals on the web are Sears and Kmart, who will be offering a discount of 30 to 40 percent off on Thanksgiving, and an additional 50 to 60 percent off on Black Friday.
There are many ways consumers can save online, on top of these savings. According to the CBS, shoppers can look to chat live with a customer representative when browsing online to see if they can find any hidden deals.
