Black Friday/Cyber Monday Strategy: Get the Deals That Count
Hey there! The holiday season is coming up, and you're likely seeing Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals pop up everywhere. At Guadalupe Credit Union, we get it—scoring a deal is awesome, but making choices that fit your life and budget? That's even better.
Real Deal or Just Noise?
You've seen the flashy ads and countdown timers, but are these deals actually saving you money? Take a sec to compare prices from different places. Keep your budget in mind and don't get swayed by the hype.
Hidden Costs, Anyone?
A 50% off tag looks cool, but did you consider other costs like shipping or warranties? Sometimes what looks like a deal isn’t so great when you add in the extras. Do the math, it's worth it.
Tech to the Rescue:
You're already on your phone, so why not use it to help you shop? Make a list of what you need and set a budget. There are apps that can help you compare prices in real-time.
While you're on the lookout for today's deals, why not also think about tomorrow? Could be tech gear, could be something for school or work. Consider things that'll pay off in the long run.
Your Financial Wingman:
Not sure about a big purchase? That's what we're here for. Guadalupe Credit Union offers free financial coaching. We can help you figure out if that "can't-miss" offer is actually worth it.
This holiday season, let’s be smart shoppers. Keep an eye on your short-term wants but also think about your long-term financial goals. And remember, we’re here to help guide you, every step of the way.Go to main navigation
