5 Tips To Survive Black Friday

1. Make a list and check it twice
Heading into Black Friday with no plan is a disaster waiting to happen. You’ll end up leaving with a flat screen TV you don’t need (but hey, it was on sale!) and no actual gifts for your loved ones. Having a list will help keep you on track and prevent you from descending into a spiral of shopping hysteria.
Make sure you have all your shortlists ready to make shopping on Rent the Runway on Black Friday a breeze!

2. Do your homework
Knowing which stores you want to hit before you head out into the crowds is always helpful. It will keep you from frantically hopping from store to store feeling overwhelmed. And you’ll know which stores have the best deals ahead of time!
 
3. Technology is your friend
Your phone can be your best friend when trying to discover the best deals and avoid having to track down sales associates amidst the throngs of customers. Apps like Red Laser let you scan barcodes for price checks, coupons, deals and price comparisons from nearby stores! Renting from your phone is a breeze with our shiny new app – be sure to tune in later in the week for BF deals exclusively available through our mobile site!

4. Bring a friend (or three)
Or 3 -it’s always better to have backup when braving the BF crowds. Your best friend’s opinion will keep you from impulse buying or over-spending! Share your shortlists with your friends to get their opinion on which styles you should jump on during our Black Friday sales!

5. Shop online
If you have trouble with crowds, stress management or confrontation in general, Black Friday is a dangerous time for you to leave your apartment or home. There are always plenty of sales online (like on Rent the Runway!) with equally great deals so you can shop from the comfort of your home. Those Thanksgiving leftovers aren’t going to eat themselves…
