Is it really a deal? First and foremost, any educated Black Friday shopper will have a barcode scanner app on their iPhone to ensure they’re not getting bamboozled with a fake deal. And, any good iPhone owner knows the convenience of skipping the shops and hitting the apps to grab their Christmas haul. I prefer to shop year-round and avoid the one special day that makes folks more crazy than usual in public fighting for bargains. But if the siren song of shopping does call the day after Thanskgiving, here are some apps to make the day easier.

The Online Black Friday Shopper

Rue La La

Stay cozy in bed with a glass of hot chocolate and grab serious deals with the free Rue La La app’s lovely designer sales. For women who know good fashion and accessories, this chic app is a must-have. With new, virtual boutiques opening every day, this app will help you stock your closet year-round, not just on Black Friday. It’s simple to use and you can grab a discounted pair of your favorite designer jeans from anywhere, including your in-law’s sofa-bed.

Toys R Us

Tis the season of giving, so don’t forget to shop around on Black Friday for the children in your life as well. I remember circling and dog earring all the toys I wanted in the Toys R Us catalog as a child. Now, you can download the free Toys R Us Toy app for kids to make a Christmas app wish list. This is a very interactive app that is fun for children so feel free to engage them in the creation process, or not. The app links you directly to the Toys R Us website to buy today so you don’t ever have to step foot in a crazy toy store hunting for singing Elmo again.

Zappos Mobile

Shoes are my candy. I can’t let Black Friday go by without adding a new pair to my carefully curated selection using the free Zappos Mobile app. But did you know that Zappos has more than just shoes? Oh yes, they have couture too. They have designer clothes, handbags, housewares and more all with free shipping and returns. The Zappos Mobile app even has its own dedicated customer service team. So seriously, why are you getting up to shop at the break of dawn? Stay in bed and hit the apps.

The Frugal Black Friday Shopper

Black Friday by BradsDeals

Before your alarm goes off at 3 a.m. on Black Friday, peruse the sales in pre-released shopping advertisements with the help of the free Black Friday by BradsDeals app. Serious shoppers will want to identify the best deals to run to first when the doors open at your beloved stores. There is even a section with some “Top Deals” to make it even easier for you, the fabulous bargain hunter.

Target

There is nothing scarier to me than a Target full of bargain shoppers on Black Friday. I’ll stay safely at Starbucks while I peruse the free Target app to shop. It;s great for use in the actual Target store though, too. First, if you are out-of-town visiting relatives, you can use the iPhone app to locate the closest Target. You can check to see if items are in stock before you drive all the way there. You can use the app to make your shopping list, view the weekly ad, check out product reviews and even scan items to check availability. Get this app and you will be one organized shopper this holiday season!
