Black Friday Survival Guide

Yes, luxury is synonymous with Casa Naranja but no one loves a bargain more than us. Granted we prefer to experience the madness of Black Friday from the comfort of our chaise lounges but sacrifices will be made. Getting up at unheard of hours in order to beat the virtual crowds being one of them. Well..last BF I thought I was really clever and set my alarm up for 5am, laptop plugged, list on desk and want to hit the ground running - well the twenty steps to the laptop anyway. To make a long story short my plan backfired. Apparently I wasn't the only clever person with this "original"idea and the systems were down. Well this year we come armed with a new set of arsenals. We bring you the real deal on BF deals, the ultimate shopping guides (for this week anyway) and tons of ways to avoid mistakes of years ago. Last tip- before purchasing anything online check for discounts and promotions!
