Sometimes with Black Friday Shopping we get so wrapped up in the hype we forget that there may be better deals on items.  Here is a great list of what to NOT buy this Black Friday!

Home and Patio Furniture: Most retailers do not discount these items until the summer month so wait!

Chocolates and Flowers: It is rare to find discounts on these items and when we do it is closer to the holiday (think perishable). Wait for Valentine's for this gift idea.

Exercise Equipment: Wait until December or early January for the best deals on Sports and Exercise Equipment. The quality offered in these deals improves too.

Airfare and Vacation Packages: Despite the fact that hotel sites offer superior discounts on Black Friday, this just isn't the time to book a flight or plan a vacation. Wait till January for better deals.

Brand-Name Smart TVs: Black Friday made its name on killer TV prices, but that doesn't mean every TV sees super deals during the shopping holiday. Premium smart TVs usually hang out at the top of the price spectrum anyway, and these in-demand sets are less likely to see doorbuster discounts during Black Friday. So when should you look for one of these sets? Brand-name TVs tend to see better prices in January.

Gift Cards: Wait on gift cards!! We will start seeing gift card deals in December (iTunes, Kroger and much more).

Tools: Black Friday does offer some decent tool sales. However over the years we have seen better sale in December. When shopping these deals be sure to look at all of what is included. Sometimes deal sets appear to be the best price but you are paying more for things you don't want/need.

High-End Laptops: Black Friday is a great time to get low end electronics and laptops. However, high-performance machines that boast a powerful CPU like Intel's Core i7 models actually see better prices during the summer back-to-school sales.

Latest Fire Tablets: Amazon recently refreshed its whole Fire tablet lineup, which means we'll certainly see sales on the old Kindles. However, history has proven that it's all but impossible to find a deal on recently-released Amazon tablets during Black Friday. We saw a couple discounts (yep, two deals total) on the then-new Kindle Fire HDX during Cyber Week last year, but we're not holding our breath for any earth-shaking offers in 2014.

Designer Clothing: Don't expect to see big discounts on name brand fashions. Shop outlets and other retailers for savings.

Winter Gear: You will see Black Friday deals in this category but wait! November is a winter month, so winter clothing is obviously in-stock everywhere at this time. You'll see the best deals on these items during winter clearance sales in January through March.

Thanks Deal News!
