Black Friday provides consumers with a fantastic opportunity to get a head start on their holiday shopping while enjoying some of the best prices of the year.  To be sure consumers shop smart and stay safe, we have put together a Black Friday Shopper’s Guide.

The guide includes a simple breakdown of shopping terms, such as “sale,” “rain check” and “warranty,” that are generally known but may not be completely understood.  We lay out our Top 10 shopping tips that will help to avoid any complications, reminding consumers to comparison shop, bring advertisements with you, and know store policies for refunds and returns.  There is also a list of important resources for you to call or check out online if you do have trouble with your shopping experience.  The guide even has a convenient space for you to write your shopping list, including the price of the item and the store you’ll get it from.

So before you hit the store to shop the season’s amazing deals, be sure to read our tips so you can stay safe.  We encourage you to print the Black Friday Shopper’s Guide off our website and take it along with you to make the most of the biggest sale day of the year.

This post is part of our “Shopping 101” series, bringing you timely information as you shop this holiday season.  For more information on your shopping rights, click here.
