Ebates Holiday Survey: Most Americans Plan to Shop on Black Friday

Research from the National Retail Federation estimates that close to $700 billion was spent during the holiday shopping season in 2016.

If you have a particular retailer that you like, watch for the release date of their Black Friday ad.

However, deals are likely to improve in quality and quantity as Black Friday approaches. In recent years e-commerce has made up an ever greater share of Black Friday sales.

A survey conducted by BestBlackFriday.com found that of roughly 500 Americans in 2017, 57 percent of respondents didn't like the idea of stores opening on Thanksgiving.

The shopping chaos of a few years ago seems to have subsided as more of us buy online but there are still a few essential tips to help you find the best deals and shop safely.

Despite the controversy about stores remaining open on Thanksgiving, 49% of American adults will shop that day, but more will be shopping online or via a mobile device, at 33%, than will be shopping in store, at 30%.

The Thanksgiving holiday is normally a time for comfort with the family but Black Friday has quickly become more of a black hole, sucking in everyone's gratitude and spitting out corporate greed. Many shops see the biggest profits of the year on Black Friday. Some department stores that include Macy's, Belk, JC Penny, and Kohl's will be open on Thanksgiving Day this year.

Ebates.com rewards members with cash back on purchases while also providing access to thousands of coupons, discounts, promotions and special deals, including free shipping. Check out what's on offer during the Argos Black Friday.

Target and Menards have not released their exact deals yet but expect big savings store-wide. Only rookies head out on Black Friday unprepared. Free membership allows consumers to shop online at over 2,000 of their favorite top-name retailers while earning a percentage of every purchase they make. In some cases, comparison shopping isn't even possible. Bottom line: Don't spend too much time or effort trying to snag a store's doorbuster deal, because, unless you're first in line or up at 5am, you're not going to get that deal. Here are some of the facts you must know before visiting any of the stores this year. Make sure that the discount is not 20 percent off the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, which is rarely the price merchants charge.

If you're shopping online use a credit card or use PayPal. On November 14, H&M will start dropping special deals at select stores and online. If you have concerns about the type of gift or the right fit, make sure you understand the return policy and its details.
