Black Friday Shopping Tips

Posted: Updated:

With Black Friday a week away, Lifestyle Expert Jamie Krell stopped by to give her tips and tricks for navigating the best deals while shopping and had the best ways to navigate our local outlet malls,  Desert Hills and Camarillo Premium Outlets.

You  save 25-65% every day at Premium Outlets and by shopping during the After Thanksgiving Weekend Sale (Nov. 29-Dec. 1), you can save even more. Between 20-50% more.

The sale kick off on Black Friday but deals continue all weekend long. Many stores will open as early as 6pm on Thanksgiving and Desert Hills Premium Outlets will have stores open Thanksgiving Day.

Black Friday Shopping Tips:

  • Shop early or shop late
  • Determine if you are in the market for anything featured as an early bird special or doorbuster deal and come out early (before stores open) to ensure you get those before they're gone.
  • If you can wait-consider coming out toward the end of Black Friday when the crowds have died down but the deals are still available.
  • Plan your trip. Maps and store lists are available online ( Outlet centers are large and it's best to pre-plan your route so you make sure you hit all the stores on your list as efficiently as possible.
  • Buy what you love now.  Don't wait - it will be gone tomorrow.  Merchandise in the outlets sells fast and once they're gone, the item may never be sold again.
  • Check the return policy before making a purchase. Most stores have traditional return policies but it's best to check.

How can I find out about deals early?

  • Sales and special deals are being added constantly to the Premium Outlets Deal of the Day calendar ( Check back frequently to view the latest sale information.
