Follow Social Media

In the days leading up to Black Friday in Las Vegas, keep an eye on your favorite stores and brands on social media. Some stores won’t even advertise their sales online. If a Black Friday sale isn’t announced yet, don’t lose hope. They may announce holiday savings the day before, or even the morning of. Turn on post notifications, sign up for email newsletters, and stay in the loop with any of their Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals.

Make a Plan

The night before you get ready to wear out your wallet, make sure you have a plan in place. Many stores have special, early Black Friday hours, which means you should be ready to set that alarm – even if you’ve had a late night out. Plan out where your favorite stores are located, what time they open, and factor in some extra time for waiting in line. It doesn’t hurt to put together a priority list to make sure you hit your must-haves before someone snatches the last one.


Brave the Outlet Malls

Sometimes, avoiding the crowds means avoiding all the fun. If you enjoy the hustle and bustle of frenzied holiday shoppers, make your way over to the Premium Las Vegas outlet malls on the South and North ends of Vegas. With stores ranging from Dolce & Gabbana to the Disney Store, there’s a store for everyone to find those perfect Black Friday Deals. While all stores may not have Black Friday sales going on, the outlets in general offer generous discounts year-round.

The holidays in Las Vegas are a special and unique experience. Whether you’re hitting the shops or are booking awesome Las Vegas Black Friday and Cyber Monday hotel deals for future stays, you are sure to find some great deals. Use that extra money at the casino, on some fun experiences, or just to buy more things!
