Benefits of Shopping Online This Black Friday
Thanksgiving is here! And that means Black Friday is tomorrow. If you want the deals without the stress, there are a number of great reasons to shop online. Click the Read More button below to find out what these are.
No crowds in the comfort of home
While everyone loves a great deal, very few people enjoy waking up before the sun to wait outside a store and then battle with hundreds of other shoppers. At home, you can enjoy shopping in the comfort of your pajamas. There are no carts to push or to get in the way when you are trying to reach something, no people to swerve around, and, best of all, no long lines to wait in.
It is easy to compare prices
We have all been there—standing in front of a product at a store while looking it up online to see if we can get it cheaper somewhere else, either in a store or on a website. On a day like Black Friday, that luxury goes out the window if you are trying to grab something before someone else does or your 4G just isn’t working at full speed. At home, however, it is easy just to pull up multiple sites to compare prices, while keeping an item in your shopping cart while you look around.
Shopping from home is faster
When you do Black Friday from home, you cut out the time it takes to get up, get ready, and get to the store, plus all the time you spend waiting to get inside before the store opens. Not to mention, once inside, you do not have to wait in the crazy long lines just to check out.
Even better, most online stores make it easy to search for items or narrow down your search by category. This makes finding exactly what you want quick and easy, and you will not have to wander every aisle.
You don’t have to carry big, bulky items
Depending on what you are shopping for on Black Friday, it can get tricky carrying all your bags and boxes and fitting everything into your car. You may even have to recruit some reinforcements to come shopping with you if you are planning on buying big ticket items like furniture or a big TV. Shopping at home online eliminates the struggle. You just find what you want and wait for it to show up on your doorstep—just make sure someone is home to receive it.
Even better, free shipping is a growing trend, as if fast shipping. For many online retailers, on Black Friday and throughout the holiday season they offer free shipping with no minimum order.
Online deals are offered earlier than in-store
Black Friday customers shopping from their computer usually get a leg up on shoppers who go in-store because deals will start earlier online than they do in the brick-and-mortar shops. Some stores even let customers start shopping the deals on Thanksgiving day, rather than waiting until the next morning (or later Thanksgiving night).
You can enjoy Thanksgiving
Maybe the most important reason to shop Black Friday deals online instead of in-store is the fact that you can enjoy Thanksgiving with your family. You won’t feel like you need to get to bed earlier, or cut dinner short because you want to rush out to get the best deal. You can enjoy the holiday with friends and family, and either hop on your laptop when everyone heads home or get up at your convenience.
Online coupon codes can lead to bigger savings
Some retailers offer discounts exclusive to online shoppers. However even if you don’t see one on the website, you can compare prices from other sites, some of which offer price matching. You can also scour the internet for coupon codes on a number of coupon sites, which will score you even bigger savings.
Special deals come up throughout the day
Unlike brick-and-mortar stores, online retailers will offer special, limited deals throughout Black Friday that may only last for an hour or two. If you are shopping from home, not only will you be able to compare prices easily, you can compare deals and act on the best ones as they turn up.
Web-only retailers are becoming increasingly common, with giants like Amazon and Overstock offering some of the best deals on the season last year. Even if you are planning to head to some brick-and-mortar stores, it is worth checking out online retailers to see if they offer the same product at a better price or exclusives you won’t be able to get in-store.
