You may have your eye on the latest John Deere lawn mower – or other farming supplies thanks to those Black Friday deals.  But one expert says shoppers may very well profit by waiting until after today to do their main gift buying.  Rutgers University Extension Financial Management Expert Barbara O’Neill says especially with big ticket items it will definitely pay to…

“compare at least 3 product providers. Take the time to either go online or visit stores and compare them side by side the features make sure you’re comparing like products.”

O’Neill says despite the hubbub of black Friday and all, it may also pay just to wait a bit. Take the time to shop around a bit because… according to retailer surveys,

“the deals are only going to get better as we get closer to the actual holiday.”

And indeed Matt Shay, President of the National Retail Association, says that according to their consumer surveys it looks like people are going to follow Barbara’s advice.

“they will spend when they’re presented with the right product at the right price with the right level of convenience and the right kind of experience.”

So you may have to wait a little bit longer – but not much – since Christmas is just about a month away.
