Just when you thought you had enough to worry about this Thanksgiving weekend, the black friday sales start before you’ve even had time to digest. But let’s say you’re more in the market for car parts, accessories or upgrades instead of TVs and electronics or the other more conventional Christmas gifts.
So where to start? First off, there are a couple things to do to set yourself up for success when you’re stocking up — whether you’re a mechanic or consumer who’s looking to make the most of their next vehicle maintenance item, or even if you’re looking to drop in a new speaker system, vehicle performance upgrade or even if you’re getting ready to start investing in new tires.
A good first step is to create a list — which you can do for pretty much every online retailer if you’re trying to snag your car repair goods without having to go in personally. A great price monitoring tool is CamelCamelCamel, which notifies you of real-time price drops based on the historical price of an item so that you know you’re getting a good deal, and can connect directly to your Amazon account.
Another great tool is a browser plugin called Honey, which scans the web for discounts on an item when you have it in your cart — great for those last-second coupon or promo codes.
And don’t be afraid to go old-fashioned and check out print ads and flyers! Consumer spending is expected to be up 16.5% this Black Friday/Cyber Monday in 2017, according to Bloomberg.
Retailers of all kinds, including automotive part retailers are going to be trying to cash in on this influx of shopping. Whether you need new tires, oil for a DIY change, any myriad number of auto part vendors are likely to have a sale.
From brick and mortar stores to local Phoenix, AZ auto repair businesses, there’s likely going to be an opportunity to get out ahead of the next thing your vehicle might need on the cheap.
Meanwhile, when you come to The Auto Shop you can depend on high quality and affordable auto repair service and repair, all located in the heart of Phoenix, AZ. Our flexible financing options mean you can keep some money in the bank during the holidays if there’s a big unexpected fix needed on your vehicle, and you’ll always have a ride to and from dropping your car off!
And have a great Thanksgiving!
