Greetings deal seekers! Thanks for watching me this morning on Good Day Alabama’s Savvy Shopper segment. Here are the Black Friday tips and deals I mentioned:


Amazon is planning more than 30 Deals of the Day, as well as thousands of lightning deals across 30 product categories starting today. 

Also if you shop with Amazon’s voice command system Alexa, you will have access to early deals starting Nov. 22.


Black Friday & Pre BF Deals on women’s boots 

Belk & Macy’s both have great deals on quality boots as part of their Black Friday sales. 

Right now you can score $19.99 boots in select styles from Macy’s + add a beauty item to your cart (prices start around $2) and the items will ship free. This will save you around $10. 

Belk is the same way with their Rampage boots. The prices will be available through next week – watch for sale extensions or coupons to be stacked with them as well. 

Macy’s scroll through this page for the boots –,Sortby/Black%20Friday%20Special,PRICE_LOW_TO_HIGH?id=56

Don’t buy list:

Quick list of things not to buy on Black Friday unless you are absolutely sure it’s dirt cheap: 

1. Bedding and bath towels 

2. Exercise equipment 

3. Winter clothing

All of these items are deeply discounted after the first of the year.  Clothing especially will drop after January 1, and let’s face it, it doesn’t get really cold here in Alabama until February. 

Cyber Security reminders:

Be prepared for hackers to attack this season. Both in-store or online purchases – so the best way to guard against this is to perhaps set up a secondary account that’s only used for your shopping budget. 

Monitor your accounts religiously. 

Shopping online or via mobile app – make sure you’re operating on a secure network
