Surprise! The largest discounts happen the week following Cyber Monday. Price cuts across women’s and men’s apparel, accessories, shoes, home goods, and electronics went as deep as 40-60 percent off that week, Hukkster data found.

For Bell, the message is clear: “Avoid the crowds,” she says. “The best deals of the season are not just reserved for Black Friday or Cyber Monday anymore.”

Good to know!  Do you shop on Black Friday?  What about Cyber Monday?

I have shopped on Black Friday with my Mom for years now and my SIL has joined us for the last 2. We have a fun time and always come away with great deals on clothes and accessories :)

I have fond memories of shopping the Black Friday sales with my mom as well. We've done it for at least the last 15 years. I'm a bit sad that they are starting things so early this year! What time are you planning to head out this year?

We don't get too crazy - I plan on picking Mom up around 4:30am then head to SIL's :) Are you going again Kristy?

We have about the same plan! I don't want to go out on Thanksgiving so we'll hit the early FRIDAY sales. :) The first one we want to hit opens at 5am so that's where we'll be. Have fun! I hope you get a few great deals!
