Getting Ready for Black Friday

As we approach the busiest shopping weekend of the year, there are some familiar tools that we can all turn to for help in getting organized and finding the best deals – our smartphones! Not only are there some great apps for everyday shopping but there are also an increasing number of apps specifically dedicated to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here are some of our favorites.

TGI Black Friday

Along with its companion app TGI Cyber Monday, TGI Black Friday tracks the latest ads from all your favorite stores, including Best Buy, Target, Sears, Walmart, and many more. Notifications alert you when new bargains become available and a search feature allows you to find specific deals for dozens of different categories. Compare prices to make sure you are getting the best deal, and share Black Friday deals and personal shopping lists via Facebook and Twitter.
