SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) Black Friday is the rush one day a year to get all the best bargains... right?
“I shopped at Target for three hours last night and then I went home and went to bed and then I came here this morning and shopped for another two,” said Keena Harris while shopping at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain.
Retailers offer steep discounts, but you have limited time to get them. But is everything on sale Black Friday really the lowest price of the year? Not always. According to DealNews.com, toys see the deepest discounts right before Christmas. Brand name HDTVs are lowest between December and February. Winter apparels are cheapest right after Christmas.
The exception may be at the Apple store where the only day sales offered all year is the day after thanksgiving.
Another myth, you need to camp out to get the best bargain. DealNews.com finds you only need to camp out to get a door buster. The site found 70 percent of the deals found in stores on Black Friday are also on the retailers' website.
If you go overboard, think you can return all your purchases? Not so fast. DealNews.com finds stores tighten their return policies during the holidays-- some only give store credit.
