Black Friday Shopping Strategy with Shoptagr

We are just one week away from arguably the biggest shopping day of the year, though apparently statistics state that December 23rd (go procrastinators!) is the actual biggest. However the best sales to be had are on Black Friday, only my strategy does not include waking up early, standing in the cold, and fighting crowds. I much prefer to do my shopping from the comfort of my living room, and with help from one of my favorite sites Shoptagr, I'll be sure to get the best sales the moment they happen.


Shoptagr is a site I've been using for the past two years to keep tabs on items I like, but don't want to buy until they go on sale. The simple to use browser button notes the size, color, and desired sale price of an item and as soon as there is a sale, I get an email. I can't tell you how many mornings a Shoptagr email has fed my shopping addiction. As a bonus, if an item goes out of stock, but then there is a pop back, Shoptagr sends an email too. They offer a mobile app so you can be tagging and shopping on the go, and it's easy to see which items are in stock, on sale, or have been purchased.

Easy to use browser button.

To help me get all my holiday shopping done and save as much money as possible, I've created a private list where I'm tagging all the gifts I want to buy for my family and friends. When the Black Friday sales start I'll be ready, and if an item goes on sale before Black Friday, I'll get a notification, including when a new coupon code becomes available!

Organized lists are easy to shop and share.
I'll also be creating a separate list for myself, which I can share with friends and family - they always appreciate the help when it comes to getting their own shopping done. Shoptagr is partnered with hundreds of retailers such as J.Crew, ASOS, Banana Republic, Nordstrom and Shopbop, so pretty much all the sites I do most of my shopping at.

If you are as dedicated to never paying full price as I am, then you should definitely be using Shoptagr, sign up and install the browser button now, it only takes a second!

  1. This is such a great idea! Loving all the plaid options. I don't think I'll be heading to the stores on Black Friday.

  2. I'm not really a sale shopper, as you know, but I must admit that the concept behind this site is absolutely brilliant - while I love instant gratification, getting a deal once in a while would be nice, too! Black Friday isn't nearly as crazy in Canada as in the US but it is starting to catch on, so I'll be avoiding stores in favour of doing a bit of shopping online ;)

  3. Ooh so fancy!! That would be a little too dangerous for me though, haha. But I agree, I do NOT go shopping on Black Friday, except for a Christmas tree :D

  4. Oh wow... i certainly have to stay away from this. I only shop on Black Friday when I am in the US and to be honest I have yet to recall a real good deal. I got most of my Christmas gifts in August, so there is little to shop for. Thankfully!

  5. Oh this would lead to me spending waaay too much money, haha! IT would be so nice for things you really want but need to wait for a sale on - often things sell out too quickly if you don't get to it right when its on sale! :)

    Hope you're having an awesome week :)
