Tip#9: Use price comparison tools
Speaking of the lowest prices, one way to make sure you track them down among the multitude of deals and offers, is to use price comparison tools. There are various apps and browsers like Honey and Capital One Shopping that could help you compare prices across different retailers. More than that, you could use up-to-date discount and coupon codes to get a better price every time you come across an item that you want.
If you’re shopping online on Black Friday, sites like PriceGrabber can also help you compare prices and get the best deals. If you’re shopping in stores, PromotionCode.org owner, Mike Catania, recommends apps such as RedLaser to scan bar codes and confirm that the price of an item is without a doubt the best available.
Tip#10: Use cash-back and rebates apps
Rewards, coupons and cash-back credit might do the trick when it comes to getting the best Black Friday deals and saving money. But if you don’t have any of those, worry not! You can still enjoy interesting discounts and cash-back by using apps such as Rakuten, Dosh and the like. These popular apps can help you score an average of 10 percent and a maximum of 40 percent rebates on selected items, said Pina.

Tip#11: Keep an eye out for good bundles
Sure, you might not need all the items that retailers throw at you with their Black Friday bundles, but this doesn’t mean you cannot find good bundles that come with extra gifts in one purchase. Therefore, many retail and consumer experts recommend being on the lookout for Black Friday bundles.

It’s a win-win, so why not take advantage of this opportunity?
