Lots of people were out when I went to the mall where the Black Friday item I was looking for – a Moderna booster – wasn’t available. When I went to check the clinic out on Tuesday, the receptionist didn’t tell me that only a certain number of slots are available a day. When I got to the clinic about 3 p.m., all the appointment times were gone even though the clinic is open until 8 p.m.
I’ll see if I can make an appointment for Monday, the next time Moderna is offered.
For Black Friday sales, lots of websites are doing research and offering suggestions. Here are a few:
Consumer Reports. This is one of the best ones because it actually tests products so you know the items it features are among the best for sale. See “The 101+ Best Black Friday Deals in 2021.”
Wirecutter. Go to “The Best Black Friday Deals 2021.”
WalletHub. Visit “2021’s Best Things to Buy on Black Friday.”
Business Insider. Go to “The 65+ Best Black Friday 2021 Deals You Can Still Grab.”
Money Crashers. Check out “Black Friday Shopping Guide 2021 – Best Deals & Sales.”
Happy shopping. Keep researching and don’t let a possible midnight deadline lure you into buying something you really don’t need and would be a waste of money.
And remember, that Black Friday deal may be a bust not a bargain.
