shopping? it's a popular day to get deals on all sorts of things, especially electronics. but contact 6's jenna sachs explains why it might not be the best time to shop for a tv. consumer reports says black friday bargains have changed in recent years. "probably the biggest trend with black friday that weve seen is just that its no longer about black
4:41 am
see deals, creeping up earlier and earlier every year." unfortunately, this shift in black friday shopping hasnt been all good. "one of the downsides to black friday shopping is that for a lot of consumers, its a lot more work than it used to be. you used to just look in a circular on sunday and go out and pick the store you want to get to. because of all the online activity now, you really have to monitor all the different websites." and dont think that just because something is advertised as a the lowest price you can find. for example, consumer reports says there are sometimes better deals on tvs, like shopping closer to christmas, or waiting a few weeks for super bowl sales. "a lot of it is based on inventory levels. so if retailers and manufacturers dont sell a lot of tvs during the year they may have the buildup in inventory." but to really find the lowest prices on tvs, plan to buy at the end of february or the beginning of march. thats when stores clear out last years models at
