How has technology changed Black Friday?  I remember when Black Friday shoppers relied on newspaper, radio and television advertising to find the best deals.

With endless sources of information available for Black Friday shoppers now, Black Friday shoppers know where the best deal are long before Black Friday, and no longer have to deal with the long lines and crowded stores.

I do my Black Friday shopping online. I don’t like dealing with crowds, taking a chance on the items I want being sold out. In most instances I don’t have to pay taxes.  That’s an additional saving.  What I enjoy most is comparing prices from as many stores as I want in less time than takes to check out at a store on Black Friday.

If you start your watch list now you will have a great shopping experience.
