The Blackest Friday By Henry Xie

Black Friday has a lot of markdowns, so people tend to wait in lines and shop carelessly. Here are some safety tips when shopping during Black Friday:

1.Make a plan of what stores to go to.

2.Shopping with ONLY one card will be easier because if it gets stolen, you can cancel one card instead of canceling multiple.

3.Hold your purse tightly or put your wallets in your pockets.

Save all receipts.

4.Lock away all BOUGHT items in the trunk.

5.Suspend credit/debit cards immediately if it gets STOLEN.

6.Use ATMs in a populated area.

7.Avoid walking alone when done buying items or in general because there will be a higher chance of getting robbed.

8.Don’t buy a lot of items so it won’t be difficult to carry items to the car or defend yourself.

9.Carry keys, money, and credit cards separate from each other.
