For many families, it has long been a tradition to pick up the newspaper on Thanksgiving and check all the local retail outlet Black Friday ads.
That tradition may soon be a thing of the past, as retailers move their ads online and sites like Amazon beat them all in price reduction.

What to avoid buying on Black Friday
Just about everything is on sale during Black Friday. However, you should approach every sale with a bit of caution.
Historically, we’ve found that “in-store-only” deals are typically available online.
In some instances, they might even debut online before in-store.
Stay home, let that turkey digest, and shop from the comfort of your living room instead of a crowded store.
