What to avoid buying on Black Friday

Just about everything is on sale during Black Friday. However, you should approach every sale with a bit of caution. 

For instance, we'd recommend bypassing any vague "doorbuster" or "early bird" specials you see on Black Friday. Sales that require you to get in line at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day are most likely available in very limited quantities. 

Historically, we've found that "in-store-only" deals are typically available online. In some instances, they might even debut online before in-store. Our advice? Stay home, let that turkey digest, and shop from the comfort of your living room instead of a crowded store.
