With Black Friday is only a couple weekends away. Which means you are this close to having that new iPhone, Computer, big screen TV, or fridge to store all those leftovers (turkey sandwich anyone?). With so many deals available, you want to make sure you maximize your dollar. Here are the 5 things you can do now to win Black Friday. [Before its too late]

1. Get 2 free stocks worth up to $1000

WeBull is a free app that lets you trade stocks with no transaction costs.  You have to be at least 18 years of age with a valid social security number.  And if you meet these requirements, you can get 2 free stocks worth up to $1000.  This is a limited time offer (ending this month).  And it happens to come at the best time of the year (right before Christmas shopping).  It’s also fairly easy to get your free stock bonus.  Here’s how it works:

  • Sign up for Webull for Free
  • Activate your account within 24 hours (also, for free).
  • You receive your first free stock worth between $2.50 – $250
  • Optional:  Get another free stock worth between $8-1000 by funding your account with $100

I know, simple, right?  Check it out before the offer expires this month.


Some of the best Black Friday Deals come with free financing, and credit checks.  So it is important to make sure there are no errors on your credit report. WIth Credit Sesame, you can get your credit score in less than a minute (it actually took me 73 seconds but I am a slow typer). Better yet, it’s 100% free so you don’t enter your credit card number and it has no impact on your credit score. Most importantly, if you have an error on your credit report, they can dispute it for you. It’s worth checking out so no one gets between you and that new Smart TV you’re eying on Black Friday.

3.  Turn loose change into stock market gains

This is an easy way to take small spending habits and turn them into investment gains. This is all done with a smart app called Acorns. Here’s how it works. Let’s say you buy a venti latte for $4.20. Acorns would round up that transaction to $5 and take the $0.80 and invest it in the stock market for you. So every time you spend during the holiday season you can be sure that small amounts of money are being tucked away and wisely invested on your behalf. It’s like having a financial advisor and assistant, for a mere $1 a month (the cost of a pump of pumpkin spice in your latte). All you have to do is download the app to get started.
