This year, 54% of shoppers plan to spend more than $500 on Black Friday. But this number is no surprise, because less than half (42%) create a budget for their Black Friday shopping excursions.

Although shoppers are shelling out big bucks while not sticking to a budget, they are hungry for deals. So much so that 80% would be willing to give up their Thanksgiving dinner for the right deal. Furthermore, finding a great deal or discount is the number one thing Black Friday shoppers look forward to (89%) - even more so than finding the perfect gift (52%).

“Black Friday shopping doesn’t have to mean skipping family time to forge through a sea of people, all to end up overspending,” says Lauren Greutman, Flipp Savings Expert. “Many retailers release their deals weeks ahead of the holiday - some of which are hourly doorbusters, so you know exactly what time the hottest items are on sale - which means you can prepare in advance for what you want and where to shop. With the Flipp app, all the best deals from your favorite brands are in the palm of your hand, making it simple to keep track of all the sales and purchase the gifts you want without blowing your budget.”

To navigate the overwhelming amount of sales and combat racking up a pile of expenses, Flipp is the must-have resource to survive and thrive this Black Friday. Flipp brings circulars and coupons from top retailers straight to your phone, making it easy to plan and save on everything you’ll need for the holiday season.
