how to find the best black friday dealsBlack Friday is less than a day away!  Get ready to find the best black Friday deals, possibly the best this Christmas season!!  Retailers have been planning on this week all year because this is when the bulk of Christmas shopping will happen this year.  Peak Week starts the Monday before Thanksgiving and goes through the following Monday, referred to as Cyber Monday.  * Black Friday is a term almost used to describe this entire time period for many retailers.* I like to think of getting this task complete (or close)- Christmas shopping- so we can all enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas together a little more.

Back to Black Friday shopping, get your lists ready!  I do believe you will find some great deals this week if you are ready to make a purchase.  If you have any questions about securely shopping online, read this post to shop smart online this Christmas season.  We want to help you find the best Black Friday deals online and in stores so check Mom’s Priority daily for updates.

Best Black Friday Deals

We will be updating our list of deals daily as we receive them from retailers here on the Black Friday Deals page, accessible from the main page.  You may want to bookmark this page.

Here are a few tips to save money this Christmas season:

  • You need to remember to check prices before you buy.  Even though a retailer claims to be offering a great price on an item, that doesn’t mean it is the BEST price.  One great website resource to check Amazon prices is https://camelcamelcamel.com .  This is a legit site that does behind the scenes work for you.  You can even sign up for price drop alerts if you are shopping Amazon and need to find a particular item.
  • You should review the Black Friday Ads for major retailers below, which are linked below for your convenience.




Department Store Black Friday Ads

Black Friday 2018 is coming November 23!  Retailer giants like Amazon and Walmart have already begun their deals of the day and door busters, with more coming each day.  Here is a list of the bigger department store Black Friday ads we have so far.

Sam’s Club Black Friday Ad

Kohls Black Friday Ad

Macy’s Black Friday Ad

More Black Friday Tips

  • Use promo and coupon codes whenever possible.
  • Note retailers that price match, and ask for a price match if you find an identical item at another store.
  • Consider a free trial of Amazon prime just for the holidays for the free shipping benefits. Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial.
  • Always keep your budget in mind and think about creating a Three Gift Rule to keep the focus off all of the gifts.  See our post about the Three Gift Rule here.

These are just a few of the ways you can find the best black Friday deals this week.  Good luck!!

Macys Customer Service

My experience with Macy’s has been amazing.  I’ve ordered multiple times and had items shipped to my house, and the time it takes for me to click order and then have the package arrive at my door is amazing.  Less than 2 days in my experience, which is much faster than the time it would take me to plan a trip to go to the mall.  Not to mention, finding what I need in stock.  These Black Friday deals from Macys.com are deep discounts that hopefully will help you in your Christmas shopping this year!  But, don’t miss out.  Shop while products are still available!

Shop Smart Online This Christmas Season

shop safe onlineThis is a post that someone needs to read; it may be you!  With online shopping surpassing in-store retail shopping this Christmas (source: Deloitte), more than likely, you are planning to shop online. Online Christmas shopping is wonderful and convenient (usually) and can save you time and money.  And at Mom’s Priority, we want to help make it easier for you!!  But, you need to know how to protect yourself and how to spot dishonest merchants and criminals.  As a fellow mom, I feel I need to make you aware of warning signs and help keep you all safe online!  Shop smart online this Christmas season with these tips.

12 Tips for Smart Shopping Online:

  • Shop through reputable companies

Who are your buying from?  Ensure websites are legit by googling them if they are not a large, well-known company.  See who they keep company with.  Just like we tell our kids, who they relate with says much about them!  While this isn’t 100% proof, this little bit of research may end up protecting your personal information.

  • Only enter your personal information, credit card number, or otherwise on secure websites

Recently, Google made the announcement that they are going to penalize websites that are not secure in Google search.  One way you can tell the “real” sites from the others is that green padlock and the “s” on https:// preceding their website name.  Always, always, only give your credit card info on sites that have that AND ALSO meet the other criteria listed here!  That green padlock says the site is secure and uses encryption so your credit card information cannot be easily stolen as data is transferred over the web.

  • Shop Online with a Credit Card

For online shopping, using a credit card (vs a debit card) is a must.  If someone were to get your debit card information, they could wipe out your savings and you have little recourse.  Most credit cards have protections included in case your card is lost or stolen.  Remember, the credit card number, expiration date, and security code are just as good as having the card in most cases.  So, protect that information!  Credit cards are much safer for shopping online.  You can dispute unauthorized charges and let their fraud protection team investigate.  Debit cards are not good for online shopping.


    • Shop on Secure Internet Connections

    Public wi-fi is not appropriate for buying online or checking your bank account.  You can SHOP all day long on public wi-fi, but don’t put your personal information in to buy until you are using a secure internet connection.

    • Beware of Phishing Scams

    Never reply to emails requesting that you enter your credit card information on their site.  Instead, go directly to the site when in doubt.  This season already, reports indicate a scam where the sender claims to be Amazon.  The email says your order cannot be processed because your credit card information is incorrect.  They tell you to click on the link to take you to “Amazon’s site” and reenter your info so your order can be processed.  Do not go to their site that even looks like authentic Amazon!  Because, they are stealing your credit card info as you enter it for them.  Instead, go directly to Amazon’s site and look at your orders to verify their claim.

    • If it’s Sounds too Good to be True, it Probably Is!

    • Read the Fine Print

    It’s not fun and takes the buzz away from shopping (haha!), but it is important that before you click “purchase” you read the fine print!  Know the policies of different retailers (which, you learn after shopping a couple of times!).  For example, Amazon orders can be returned at Kohl’s now.  Most online stores that also have brick and mortar stores allow you to return the items with no penalty at their physical store.  However, some returns incur restocking fees or shipping fees at your expense.  Know how long you have to make a return.  It’s your job to know what you are getting into when you make the purchase.

    • Privacy Concerns

    Along the same lines, check out websites’ privacy policies in order to protect your personal information.  Websites should have an easy to find privacy policy (usually at the bottom of the website) that addresses how your information will be used.

    • Clear Your Cache/ Cookies Often

    If you’re not familiar with these terms, basically, go to Internet Options, then Clear Browsing History frequently.  What merchants do is store your info and preferences to keep page load time down and get to know you in a sense.  Pages are tailored with you in mind.  While that is generally not a problem, it is beneficial for you to clear it on occasion.

    • Keep Your Computer/Phone Software Up to Date

    New viruses and malware come out every day.  The only way to protect yourself and your machines is to keep the software up to date.  You need firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware software installed and running.  When they update, you need to update if it’s not done automatically behind the scenes to make sure you are protected.  Run virus scans regularly and make sure you install the latest updates.

    • Delivery

    Keep an eye on packages arriving to your door.  At Christmastime, there is an increased risk of theft anyways.  This also includes delivered packages.

    • Proof of Purchase

    You can either print a receipt or make sure you received the email that tells what was purchased and when delivery is expected.  That way, if you have any discrepancies or need to return, you have documentation.

    Shopping online is convenient and quick, as long as you’re dealing with honest merchants and secure websites.  You can save a ton of money by shopping online this Christmas, and Mom’s Priority has a variety of ways to help you do that.  Please stay vigilant as you shop online to protect your identity this season, and if you have any questions, please email me at momspriority@gmail.com.  Happy shopping!!

    7 Ways to Save at Amazon Prime Day

    Amazon Prime Day is Here

    Amazon Prime Day’s 30 hours of deals officially starts now!  This event has led other retailers to have “Black Friday in July,” and the Amazon deals are said to rival Black Friday prices.  According to Amazon, last year 2 million toys, 1 million pairs of shoes, and 90,000 TVs were purchased on Amazon Prime Day alone!  Those numbers are insane, and the company promises good deals again this year.

    So, if you are in the market for something in particular, read on to find out how to track down the best prices and save money!  (Psst…Rumor has it there will be great deals on TV’s and they will quickly sell out. Don’t rush though; It definitely pays to shop around.  See #4)

    Mom’s Priority’s Ways to Save

    1. Join Amazon Prime  –  The best deals are reserved for Amazon Prime members, so start a 30 day free trial today.  Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial  It is completely possible to join it today and cancel today, just to take advantage of all of the Prime Day sales.  But, I recommend keeping Amazon Prime for many reasons, including 2 day FREE shipping, streaming video and music, and deals!
    2. Install the Amazon Shopping Assistant- You can receive product and price comparisons as you shop online with this program from Amazon.  I am wary of it, just because I don’t want Amazon looking at everything I buy online from other sites, but it could be a useful tool to help save money long term.
    3. Download the Amazon app and get a $10 credit – Once you download the app, you can set alerts and view deals 24 hours before they are live.
    4. Check camelcamelcamel.com – Know that you’re getting a good deal by checking this website that tracks and compares Amazon prices.  It’s so helpful and prevents buyer’s remorse!
    5. Check Today’s Deals – On Amazon’s homepage, find out today’s deals and set alerts to “watch this deal” so you don’t miss anything!
    6. Compare Amazon Credit Cards – The Amazon Prime Store Card give 5% back to Prime members, and for a few deals, up to 15% additional off on Amazon Prime Day!  The Amazon Visa card gives you 3% back on all Amazon purchases, and 5% back for Amazon Prime members.
    7. Choose the No-Rush Shipping Discount – Amazon, as well as Walmart, are testing out an instant discount if you are willing to wait a few extra days.  For example, the other day I ordered items from Walmart I didn’t need urgently.  I just needed it in the next week or so.  I was able to choose to delay my shipment, and save an additional 3%!  The great news is that the majority of the Walmart items came anyways on the 2nd day; I still saved 3%.  That may not always be possible, but when I can wait, I can save!

    With these 7 simple ways to save with Amazon Prime Day, I hope you can save money and live your priorities!  Please comment, email, or send a message on facebook if you have any questions!

    How to Find the Best Black Friday Deals

    Finding the very best Black Friday deals is a challenging task, but the savings are so rewarding!  For all of the passionate savers out there like me, read on to see how you can save a ton this Christmas season.

    1. Get organized. Make a list, and check it twice.  Definitely plan out your shopping based on your budget and who you would like to buy for.  This step saves money and time.
    2. Buy discounted gift cards.  When and if you decide definitively where to shop, purchase gift cards in the appropriate amounts from Raise.com.  You will receive a discount on the gift card of up to 30%!
    3. Look beyond Black Friday.  Keep the whole season in mind when you plan out your shopping.  Walmart and Amazon both are kicking off their deals now, more than a week before Black Friday.  This year, Walmart wants to win out on Black Friday, so expect to find good deals and inventory available when you shop online as they are  increasing their online inventory levels by 50%.  According to Dealnews.com, many deals will be found on Thanksgiving Day, especially for appliances, TVs, tablets, and cameras.  Tools are expected to be hot on Black Friday, and Cyber Monday is a day for deep discounts on laptops and clothing.
    4. Shop from your home.  Based on what I have seen from the leaked ads, most sales are also available online!!  Shopping from home is great for introverts like me who do not enjoy the crowds and craziness on Black Friday.
    5. Study the ads and plan you shopping.  From what I have seen, Kohl’s is a good place to find toys 50% off on Black Friday.  Walmart and Best Buy have good prices on laptops and tablets.  Amazon offers good prices on cameras, like the Canon Rebel T5 bundle with 2 lenses for $459!  (The best gift I have ever received was my camera, a Canon Rebel for Mother’s Day- see my post here)  Macy’s has good black Friday deals on small appliances and clothing.
    6. Do your research to know if you are getting a good deal.  For Black Friday, when and if you are in the stores, and for the whole season!  Compare among the ads below and on our deals page.  Download the Shop Savvy app and use it in the stores by scanning the barcodes.  It will tell you the different prices available for that product at online and retail stores, so you know if you are getting a good deal. Compare to Amazon by going to their Shopping App.  If you are buying from Amazon, check Camelcamelcamel.com to look at historical Amazon price data.
    7. Use coupons, promo codes, and loyalty cards to maximize savings.  Mom’s Priority deals page is a great place to start.
    8. Look for Free Shipping or Free Ship to Store.  You can easily go to the store at a later date to pick up your purchases.
    9. Don’t procrastinate!  By waiting until the week of Christmas, you can end up spending a premium on the same gifts.
    10. Set a goal to finish shopping.  My goal this year is to finish shopping by December 5, so we can devote our time and thoughts to the real meaning of Christmas.
    11. Never miss out on the true meaning of the holidays, family and celebrating the birth of Christ.  (See my post about 3 Gifts here) Enjoy the moments more than letting the details get to you.  A kid will be happy playing with a box, and you have these memories with you forever.  Keep it in perspective (note to self).
