Black Friday Shopping Survival Tips

If you’re planning to brave the evening or early morning crowds to score some Black Friday deals, there are a few things you can to do to prepare. Here are six Black Friday shopping tips to help you make the most of the big day:

Click here for a sneak peek at Art Van Furniture’s Black Friday specials.
Review the flyers

With crowds at all-time highs, Black Friday isn’t the time to be a browser. Instead, peruse the flyers and websites and know what you want before your alarm goes off that morning. Skipping this step can mean missing out on the best deals.

Consider your budget

It can be easy to get caught up in the frenzy and overspend. Decide how much you want to spend and stick to it. Also do a quick Google search to see if coupons or promotions are available above and beyond the sale prices.

Make a plan

Timing is everything on Black Friday. Create a plan based on the hours of the stores you want to hit and their geographical location. If you want one of the best deals, you’ll have to be there when they open. If you shop with friends, make a plan to divide and conquer.

Get there early

The early bird gets the worm. The best deals go quickly, and you don’t want to miss out on your chance to bring them home.

Pack some refreshments

Black Friday shopping requires stamina and energy. Pack healthy snacks and drinks that keep you filled up and hydrated. Good choices are nuts, fruit, hard-boiled eggs, water and juice. Bringing your own food means you’ll avoid the temporary spike and big crash that high-fat, high-sugar fast foods can bring.

Don’t wait

If you love it, buy it. If you decide to think about it, you risk that it will be gone when you return.

12 Tips for Shopping ALL the Labor Day Sales

Who knew? Labor Day is THE BIGGEST retail savings holiday of the year! 

So how can you make sure you’re squeezing the most out of every $$$ during the crazy awesome Labor Day Sales? These tips from savvy furniture shopper Jocelyn Wolf – whose family has been in the furniture business for 116+ YEARS (!!!) – should help. 

ONE: A Labor Day Sale means GREAT BIG DEAL$  

Stores are putting the latest fall merchandise on their showroom floors so they need to clear EVERYTHING out to make room. (Help them out – buy some stuff!) You’ll get serious bargains -with greatly reduced prices on floor models, closeouts and discontinued items.   

$AVVY $HOPPER TIP: Inspect your floor sample finds closely before buying. There’s typically a “no return” policy on this stuff.

TWO: It’s the PERF Time to Shop for Back to School

Moving into the dorms or your first college apartment? Treat yourself with BIG savings on bedding sets, wall art, futons and anything else you need to make your new space awesome.

THREE: Shop for better sleepzzzzzzzz

Labor Day Sales are THE BEST for shopping mattresses. Stores and manufacturers are handing out HUGE discounts and the promotions are HOT. Buy now and you’ll sleep better – long after Labor Day.

FOUR: Don’t cry – Shop outdoor

As much as we hate to see summer end – seriously, we’re crying big tears over here – retailers are putting greatly reduced price tags on outdoor merchandise. Now’s the time to get that new patio set you’ve been drooling over – for a steal. Retail therapy, anyone? 

FIVE: Prep to cozy up indoors

Again, we hate to do this but FALL IS ALMOST HERE. That means pumpkin spice, cooler weather, more time spent indoors and maybe more pumpkin spice. It’ll be less depressing if you plan now and make your living room a family sanctuary. That old sofa? It’s not getting any comfier or any cuter. Replace it with a gorgeous sectional and you’ll have room for the whole fam to cozy up for Netflix binge time. 

SIX: Sign up for special offers 

We all need more email, right? Ummmm … no. But in this case, signing up for your favorite store’s emails is a GOOD IDEA. Before Labor Day, sign up for promotional emails from your favorite stores and brands and follow them on social. You’ll want to know who’s offering special sales or amazing savings on pieces you’ve got your eye on. 

$AVVY $HOPPER TIP: Sign up to become an Art Van VIP and you’ll get notified of our special events and promotions. 

SEVEN: Get a price guarantee

Make sure the store you’re shopping has a price guarantee or a price adjustment policy. Then you can shop with confidence, knowing you’re getting the best possible deal. And if you find it for less somewhere else or see the price drop, you won’t miss out – you’ll save even more.  

EIGHT: Don’t be blinded by a good deal

Furniture is a commitment! Buy what you love and only what you love. If you don’t love it or don’t need it, don’t bother.  And definitely NEVER sacrifice your style for a great price. On the flip side, if you see something you love, don’t wait to buy! During Labor Day Sales, many items – like outdoor sets at super low prices – are limited inventory and won’t be restocked. If you wait, it may disappear. Poof! 

Outdoor furniture sets are going for super low prices during Labor Day Sales.

NINE: Shop in-person and online

Are you a hands-on shopper? Or a shop-from-the-sofa pro? Either way, we have you covered with amazing deals and special promotions at all of our stores and online. Go ahead and shop how you want, when you want and where you want. You’re good. 

$AVVY $HOPPER TIP: Art Van has sales teams ready to assist in-store or online with  questions you may have about products and special financing offers.

TEN: Look ahead to the holidays

Were last year’s holidays overcrowded? Did ALL the cousins show up? Make sure you have enough seating for this year’s holiday parties now. Take advantage of Labor Day Sale prices to update your dining situation so you can invite everybody and still have room for unexpected guests.

$AVVY $HOPPER TIP: Furniture delivery schedules fill up quickly before the holidays. Avoid the stress and plan ahead this year. You’ll be glad you did, come November!
Need more room for far flung family members who visit during the holidays? Shop dining during Labor Day Sales for the best prices.

ELEVEN: Save now, pay later

Check to see if the retailer you’re shopping offers financing options. If so, take advantage of 0% APR offers to get the furniture, mattress or flooring you want at the price you can afford – with flexible payment options.  

$AVVY $HOPPER TIP: Art Van has flooring! Plan ahead for holiday entertaining by putting in new floors or wall tile

TWELVE: Try a style that’s new to you

Great deals are just the excuse you need to try something totally new with your decor. Think accent pillows, artwork, area rugs and more. Add color, texture or maybe even a faux fur throw to glam things up.
