2 min read

Getting caught up in the spirit Black Friday—the busy shopping day after Thanksgiving— is easy. You’re in a mental mindset to spend—and retailers count on that to lure you in with doorbuster prices and hope you buy a lot more while you’re there. Sometimes, though, the deals aren’t as good as they seem.

Certain categories of merchandise are best avoided on Black Friday. And the team at DealNews has advice on what you should avoid (and for how long). Here are things you’re better off bypassing.

Power tools

Mom or Dad might want a drill, but the holidays aren’t the time for peak savings. Prices tend to be lower closer to Father’s Day. There are some end-of-year savings, but if it’s a gift that can wait,…
