According to popular money-saving sights, Krazy Coupon Lady and Rather Be Shopping, the must-have apps before you head out Black Friday shopping are, Savvy Shop and Deal News.

After some experimenting with both apps, we found out that Shop Savvy requires using your location and camera, but lets you scan the item’s bar code to see if there are any cheaper prices nearby.

Deal News breaks down the 300 hottest buys of the day.

For veteran shopper Karen Lamendola, the key to successfully completing your shopping on Black Friday is preparation.

She writes out the list of items she wants, the times the stores open, then she says she drives her route the was she imagines Santa would.

For less conventional tips, the Krazy Coupon Lady recommends you bring a reusable bag, so you don’t have to push past crowds with a cart.

Don’t wear red at Target because you will be confused for an employee and be stopped.

Another is you could always just sit in the comfort of your couch and ask Alexa for the best deals online.

Shopping online was by far the number one way viewers said they plan to shop.

If that is what you prefer, download Package X-Ray. It will let you scan the bar code on the package, and it will tell you what is inside so you make sure you received all your gifts but can keep them in the box hidden.
