Here’s how to capitalize on Black Friday deals: 

Use discounted gift cards.

Along with all the deals you'll score this Black Friday, you can save even further by using discounted gift cards when you shop. Before you hit the stores, visit Gift Card Granny to find gift cards at a reduced price. This one-stop shop will help you locate the best-discounted gift cards available on multiple sites so that you'll save the most money possible. If you're already planning on spending a significant amount of money on Black Friday, you could end up saving a lot of money by using discounted gift cards for your purchases.

Create a plan.

Don't just show up at your favorite store hoping to find the best Black Friday deals. If you really want to get the most for your money, create a plan so that you know what you need to purchase, which stores offer the best discounts and doorbusters and in what order you'll shop.

Leave the kids at home.

Let's face it, bringing your kids along can really turn a well-planned shopping trip into an exhausting excursion. Long lines, chaotic crowds and late hours can wreak havoc on anyone's patience but are especially tough on young children. Though they might want to come along on Black Friday, do everyone a favor and hire a sitter.

Ditch the cart.

It's hard enough to weave a shopping cart through the aisles of a store on a normal day, but during Black Friday it's simply maddening. Not only that, but you'll lose precious time in the process. This year, bring along reusable shopping bags instead of using a cart whenever possible.
