Not only is Thanksgiving a big eating week. It’s also a big shopping week. Joe Shelerud and Erik Swenson from AdAdvance stopped by The Lift to share tips for finding the best deals while shopping on Amazon. “The holiday shopping season keeps expanding. Even before this weekend you may have seen a lot of sales coming up,” Joe tells us. “Deals are really moving the needle this year.”

Tip No. 1: Create a wish list Most websites will allow you to create a Wishlist or simply add items to your cart. You’ll use this as a tool to monitor how prices fluctuate. “As time goes on deals can start today. They can start tomorrow… Deals aren’t just happening on Black Friday or Cyber Monday,” Eric tells us.

Tip No. 2: Explore all categories “It’s not just giftable items that are going to have deals.” Joe tells us to check out Slick Deals where people are able to post about things like household goods or cleaning products.

Tip No. 3: Find big deals under Black Friday banner Eric tells us that we won’t have to dig very deep to find the deals, “Right when you go Amazon or even the other big e-commerce stores are going to call that out right on the front page.”
