Black Friday Savings Tip: Get a Deal-Friendly Credit Card
Posted on August 6th @ 9:16 am ET in Guides & Tips

One of the best ways to maximize your savings during Black Friday week is to make sure you have a good cash-back credit card. Use these credit cards for your purchases and you will earn additional cash back beyond the usual big Black Friday savings found each year. But the clock is ticking - if you want to get any of these cards to use during the upcoming sales, you need to apply soon.

Many of these cards have big signup bonuses if you spend a certain amount in the first 3 months with the card, so sign up for any of these cards today and you can use your holiday shopping to meet these bonus goals easily. Check out GottaCreditCard.com for an list of our favorites.

Several years ago we compiled a list of best practices that stores can follow for a successful day - Black Friday 101 for retailers. We think these ideas still are valid and should be considered.

Now that Black Friday & Cyber Week are over, you may be thinking that the best deals are over as well. But as we've mentioned many times, GottaDEAL is open all year, 365/24/7.

We post hundreds of deals each week on our GottaDEAL home page, and we have thousands of coupons and discounts for your favorite retailers. Sign up for our popular Instant Deal Alerts to get e-mails when we find Black Friday-level deals during rest of the year.

Keep following us on Twitter and make sure you've liked our Facebook page to keep in touch during the rest of the year and learn about new deals. You can also sign up for our Black Friday mailing list and we'll send you an e-mail when we get going again.

In closing, thank you for making our 15th year covering Black Friday here on GottaDEAL another big success. Black Friday is covered everywhere these days, but as the largest and oldest independent Black Friday site, we hope we've provided something that the other sites just can't match.

We hope you found the site useful and we also hope you'll stick around all year long. We'll be posting any relevant news updates and rumors over the next 9 months or so, and we'll see everyone again in September as we resume our Black Friday coverage for our 16th year.
