As one of the most talked about shopping days of the year, it’s no wonder thousands and thousands of people wake up early and make the trek to their favorite department store in search of great deals. But, will it really save you a lot of money?
In a word, yes. But only if you’re properly prepared. Just as you can find great deals on Black Friday, you can also get sucked into deals that aren’t as great — and probably not worth the stress you’ll go through fighting the crowds.
Below, we’ve put together some of the top myths about saving money on Black Friday — and why you shouldn’t believe them.

Check your local paper and it’s likely you’ll find some great deals that are happening later in the day.
