This year some retailers were releasing their Black Friday deals before Halloween!  It certainly feels like everything is on sale all the time these days. But not all sales are created equal and are more of a math trick to make it appear you are getting a good deal. But this year, there's the Black Friday Calculator that can help you decide if the deal is truly a bargain. The online calculator is easy to use too!  Select the type of deal, such as a percentage off or a BOGO. Then enter the normal price and if tax is included.  The calculator will let you know if it is a deal or not. What makes this calculator great is that it has options for two-for-one, three-for-two and four for three. Double or triple discounts (save an extra 20% when you spend $100, etc.) as well as discount on multiple products; all of which retailers use to get you excited to buy.  While many of these discounts are indeed good, not all are great, especially during busy shopping times such as Black Friday.  Remember to also check the price history as some retailers will raise the price of items prior to a big shopping event so give the appearance that they have cut prices. CLICK HERE to use the calculator!
