If you are a smart shopper, you should ignore those 40% discounts. Here is why

The 2016 elections were supposedly so engrossing that they stopped Americans from getting a head start on their holiday shopping. Even so, it’s been impossible for most shoppers not to notice that retailers have rolled out loads of early season deals.

Amazon launched the first of its pre-Black Friday sales on Nov. 1, while stores like Best Buy and Target have already promised free no-minimum shipping on all purchases throughout the season, in addition to a range of early discounts and promotions. Many of Walmart’s Black Friday deals are live in stores and online right now as well.

Don’t buy anything. Save your money. Stay at home and eat carrots.
