Black Friday is almost here! Every year, many shoppers anxiously wait for the day after the American Thanksgiving to discover what deals will be included in the Black Friday sales. Some sales will be just on that day, while others will extend throughout the weekend. Exclusive electronic and tech deals may be offered on the following Monday. Cyber Monday often offers its own exclusive deals. In recent years, many organizations are also offering Early Black Friday sales or Pre-Black Friday deals. Start watching for discounts and be sure to take note of the expiry dates. For many, Black Friday shopping has become a holiday tradition.
So, what does this have to do with genealogy? Black Friday sales are being offered by many genealogy and family history organizations right now. Be sure to check your favourite websites and their social media posts for exclusive offers. These discounts are frequently the lowest prices to be offered for the year. From DNA testing kits to memberships and subscriptions to software to various genealogy-related products, this is a great time to take advantage of Black Friday savings.
What are your genealogical goals for 2023? Thinking about them now, while the sales and discounts are on, will give you the opportunity to save on your 2033 budget. Which memberships or subscriptions will you need? Do you know the supplies needed for your educational goals? Do you need to upgrade your technology equipment?
