The Friday after Thanksgiving is still considered the biggest single shopping day of the year.

The average per-person spending on Black Friday last year was $313.29.

So, what do you need to know before you start shopping?

While the experience has changed in recent years, the deals still remain.

Some do’s for Black Friday: do buy electronics, appliances, apparel, sneakers and designer bags. These items are most likely to be discounted.

And do use your mobile device. Free Black Friday apps -- such as TGIBlackFriday -- can help you find the best offers.

It’s also a good idea to compare in-store and online deals, as they can be quite different.
