OKLAHOMA CITY – With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many shoppers will be hitting the stores to find the best deals on Christmas presents.
However, not all sales are created equal.
This year, the National Retail Federation expects total retail sales to reach $630.5 billion.
To help consumers maximize their savings, WalletHub surveyed 8,000 deals from 30 of the biggest U.S. retailers’ ads for Black Friday.
According to WalletHub, JCPenney will give you the most bang for your buck on Black Friday with an average discount of about 68 percent.
WalletHub’s list of the best retailers for Black Friday is as follows:
