It’s 100 Days until Black Friday! Here Are 7 Things You Need to Know TODAY.

Tuesday, Aug 19, 2014 at 7:00 AM

It’s just 100 short days until Black Friday 2014! Do you realize how short that really is? It may be back-to-school season now, but that will quickly segue into Halloween and Thanksgiving and, you know, Black Friday. And of course, Black Friday predictions and rumors are just around the corner, too.

Black Friday 2014 Early Tips

We’ve been at this whole Black Friday thing awhile now, and there are a few things we’ve learned over the years.

The first ads usually start leaking in mid-October.

“When will we start seeing Black Friday ads?” is one of the most common questions we get. To answer, we took an accounting of the first ads we’ve gotten over the last few years:

The Sprint leak in 2012 was actually unprecedented in how early it was, and also was not a typical ad in that it only revealed one product. The next ad we found in 2012 was Harbor Freight again, this time on October 12. So we’re comfortable calling the 2012 Sprint leak a fluke, but it just proves the point that there’s no way to predict when an ad will be released unless the retailer announces it. And even then, someone might swipe a copy off the boss’s desk and sent it out to the interwebs ahead of schedule.

The Summer Secret to Getting Early Black Friday Doorbusters in November

Wednesday, Jul 30, 2014 at 9:14 AM

Last November, we let our readers in on one of our favorite dirty little secrets about Black Friday: Anyone can get almost anything at its Black Friday price well before Black Friday.

Why wait in this line when you can get your doorbuster sooner for the same price?

In our post Get Those Black Friday Deals – Before Black Friday, we pointed out how savvy shoppers can use credit card price matching programs to avoid the crowds and score doorbusters early without leaving the comfort and warmth of their own homes. The gist is that if you know what the Black Friday price will be, and can offer proof of that price, select credit cards will refund you the difference.

If this sounds like an appealing strategy to you, then the best time to make sure at least one of those credit cards is in your wallet come November is right now.

Trust me, you didn’t want to learn about this time and money saving strategy the week before Black Friday, when it would be too late to get approved and for your card to arrive in the mail. Summer is the perfect time to apply. Plus, if the card you choose requires a minimum spend over three months, as so many of the better rewards cards do, your points will hit your account just in time to use them for holiday travel, saving you even more money.

Best Buy officially launches their Black Friday in July sale tomorrow, but you can get early access if you’re a My Best Buy member. (Registration is free and you’ll be granted immediate access.)

Best Buy Black Friday in July 2014While there are some good buys in here – our tech editors pointed out the Asus Laptop and Jawbone Activity Tracker in particular – these are nowhere close to the prices we’ve seen at Best Buy on previous Black Fridays. It’s hard to forget that last year the iPad mini was bundled with a $100 Best Buy gift card for $200. This is also not the best season for buying televisions, though the models we mention in our list below are still good buys at this price for this time of year.

These some of our top picks from the sale:
