How I Saved $400 On The Black Friday Sale Christmas Shopping


Before Christmas, I strategically shopped at the Black Friday sale to save a small fortune for festive gifts.

One of the perks of working with a talented bunch of writers and editors at Finder is the steady stream of articles coming my way.

As our team keeps track of Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday sales this year, I’ve used our latest updates to plan my holiday spending smartly – and I’ve saved over $400 in the process.

Here’s what I bought and where I saved:

Apple AirPods Pro
