I segment and more people are coming on Black Friday and I guess I'd never done the Black Friday -- so this is kind of -- new to me Skype games here right now founder of help save my dollars dot com.
-- you always you generally talk about what like you're you know the cons crowd is doing but your tips I think if everybody -- You -- shot this year.
They are and you know The National Retail Federation saying that sales are gonna be up two point 8% last year they were up 2.3 percent.
Two years ago they're up about a half a percent so we're certainly seeing that upward trend as the economy gets a little better.
Okay but so your generation in particular strapped many even still unemployed but so you -- -- -- really awesome tips my favorite is this discounted gift card thing.
Tell us about this yeah it's it's incredible so you can go to plastic jungle dot com and -- for example are 130 dollar gift card to JC penny you can buy it for a 110 dollars.
That 15% savings and we'll send you to get cardinal shipping -- Richard or not only -- that.
All the way it works is if you'll get a gift card as a gift that you don't like -- you'd rather have the cash you can go to those web sites.
And sell it for up to 90% of its cash value.
The website will then take active -- sold for profit.
-- regular consumers but the consumers will still save money on our cards hi everyone went plastic jungle dot com exactly.
Now you say never Paper shipping and that is the one thing that I do I do -- I mean I don't know whatever.
I never -- receiving anywhere I can tell you to do is put in free shipping in the store and you get some code somewhere right.
Well you know 90% -- retailers are gonna offer free shipping so there's no reason to pay you can go to free shipping dot -- If you do come across -- that doesn't offer free shipping but.
There's a great I'd point out that just launched this week it's called slice and attracts -- shipments so nice yet it links to your email and it will actually grabbed the data from those digital receipts that you could receive from Amazon apple yeah -- -- you know -- all your packages.
And you -- to go to FedEx UPS to our common internal tracking number the -- doesn't work for you yeah just launched this week.
Okay so the other weird thing about -- black Friday's it's not really Black Friday think.
Thursday -- -- -- in Turkey you're shopping.
Exactly I think that fifteen here is that -- -- are desperate move and this is unlike anything we've seen in previous years so we have.
You know Toys 'R' Us and Wal-Mart opening up at nine -- ten at night on Thanksgiving Day.
And just a few hours later at midnight on Black Friday.
You have the Best Buy target and Macy's opening up at midnight so people are gonna be you know heading from their Thanksgiving dinners to the -- -- it's really incredible what we're seeing.
And meeker Morgan trampled remember and lastly on Lamar opened early as I think it's a looney tunes.
Right so what I know we mean we went on a lot about this -- lay ways back.
Energy LA when I was a kid but -- -- you -- actually really good point about not to why you should not to lay away.
Yeah we saw that and I he's a little bit but they're coming back so major it's and I think in the seventies and so instead of these we did and we -- irony and it we own good storage applicable -- come back.
And they come back but there's so many do you see a five dollar service seen in a five dollar ten dollar cancellation fee and there can even be more fees that are are.
Percentage of the item you buy but the real main point -- -- You could be locking in a price now that's gonna get further discounted as the season goes on that's a great point -- write about it the only problem is at issue is the inventory -- being there for you.
That's the only thing but with so many retailers -- so much competition they have obviously Amazon -- obviously the brick and mortar stores.
I don't think that consumers will be shut out inventory that's a good point actually it -- they're desperate right they're desperate that's that's the mean.
Idea here is that we can't know that this is the last -- get shoppers into the store and make those -- before that the year's -- You know shot this year.
I don't know how many do Black Friday because I kind of feel like every day -- Black Friday up until Christmas but.
And I you're probably -- that so I think abundantly I think advantage of some of the -- and an on online is -- another act he suggested.
Yeah for Black Friday it's called the TGI Black Friday -- And it it'll aggregate all of the ads for Black Friday before they hit the newspaper so unity of all these different products that they're putting on -- coverages loonie -- Perhaps takes everything in one convenient location and and has -- -- where there.
That is why Scott PM -- grade founder help save my dollars dot com check out the -- say.
You know Leon Black Friday -- and come back I'd be great Agassi and.
