Black Friday Shopping Tips! #BlackFridayCA

Black Friday. Either you are a BlackFriday Shopper or you are NOT.

I am a Black Friday Shopper. I used to be a boxing day shopper but have converted to BlackFriday because it is in November and I don’t want to wait until December.

This is a long standing family tradition. We save our money. We make our lists. We Shop.

Target asked us to help them put together a list of  Black Friday Shopping Tips. We hope that you find out tips helpful.

Tip 1 – Deal Discoverer

Visit Target.ca to find your local Target Store and check flyers to stay ahead of the rest. Make a plan and be a Black Friday Deal Ninja. Shop like you mean it. Black Friday is on!

BF tip 1

Tip 2 – Wish Lists

Start circling your fave products and create a budget to keep everyone on track and shopping happy.

BF tip 2

Tip 3 – You are Here

Make a shopping plan and pick a place to meet if anyone gets separated from the heard.

BF tip 3

Tip 4 – Shopping Fuel

Stay hydrated and bring some snacks if you can. Starbucks in Target Stores are a great way to take a pit stop. Fuel up and keep going strong.

BF tip 4

Tip 5 – Shop Like a Pro

Comfortable shoes are the difference between a successful shop and becoming a Grinch. Wearing layers can help regulate your body temperature and keep you from overheating.

BF tip 5

Tip 6 – Share the Day

Shop with friends so you can have some extra hands and laughs along the way.

BF tip 6

Tip 7 – Store Hours 101

Know your Canadian BlackFriday deal details. On November 29, 2014 all stores across Canada, with the exception of Quebec, will be open from 6am-11pm.  Quebec Stores will be open from 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.

BF tip 7

Tip 8 – Store Map 101

Want to plot out your shopping trip? you can download a map of your local Target Store so you know where to find all of the great deals. Look for it on Black Friday Central.

BF tip 8

Tip 9 – Bring Your Own Bag

Bring compactable shopping bags with you. Great for the environment and more durable than plastic bags

BF tip 9

Tip 10 – Rock the REDcard

Using a Target REDcard is the easiest way to save an additional 5% on top of the crazy Black Friday Deals. ‘T’is the season to save.

Target & TOMS Are One For One, For All! #TOMSforTarget

one-for-one-for-allWe all love TOMS, the shoe company that is also a philanthropic force helping those in need around the world. This season, Target is teaming up with this socially responsible company for the One for One, For All promotion.

 

Starting November 16th, for every Target+Tom’s Limited Edition gift you buy, these two companies will donate a pair of shoes, a cozy blanket or warm meals to those in need! 

And Target has more than just TOMS shoes! TOMS has beautifully crafted .021natural clothing collections for men, women and children as well rich and earthy home accessories. You can view their entire Target collection here.

So how are shoes changing the world one pair at a time?

In 2006, company founder, Blake Mycoskie was traveling in Argentina and found that the children in a local village had no shoes. Wanting to help, he created TOMS and promised that they would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair fo new shoes given to a child in need. One for One.

.025Blake believes that we are all responsible for each other: “I was so overwhelmed by the spirit of the South American people, especially those who had so little, and I was instantly struck with the desire — the responsibility — to do more.” With that ethos as its mission statement, TOMS Shoes has given 10 million pairs of shoes to children in need. Along with this extraordinary feat, this company with a heart has provided prescription glasses and sight-saving surgery in 10 countries around the world.

Remember, for each TOMS product you purchase at a Canadian Target store .026from November 16, 2014 through March 12, 2015, TOMS and Target will donate the monetary equivalent of a blanket, a pair of shoes or a week’s worth of meals to Canadian giving partners including the Canadian Red Cross and Food Banks Canada. These vital charities will oversee the efforts to get your donations to those in need.

So with the season of sharing, caring and family soon upon us, partner with Target and Toms to bring a small but significant change to someone less fortunate.

Just in case you didn’t know. If you purchase the products in Canada they will help families right in Canada.
