NEW HAVEN Conn. (WTNH) — Black Friday is just days away and what better way to get in the shopping spirit than by preparing before you head out the door.

Danielle Reiss, with the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford stopped by our station to talk about all the deals this year and how we can take advantage of all of them.

When everyone starts to head to bed from all the turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie feasts, thousands are expected to be headed out to start their 2016 holiday shopping season.

  1. Do Your Research
    • Browse the Deals Before You Go
  2. Make a plan
  3. Get comfortable
  4. Use store credit cards
