Social Networking sites have significantly changed the way millions of people interact and keep in touch, and now sites like Facebook are offering new ways to save. With Black Friday quickly approaching, retailers like Lowe's are using the site to get the word out, build excitement and bring extra savings to its most loyal customers.
On Nov. 5, Lowe's home improvement stores will begin airing videos on its Facebook page, giving viewers a sneak peak of its Black Friday deals. In each video will be coupon codes, offering 90% off some items. The videos go live just after midnight (12:01 a.m. Nov. 5) and there are a limited number of codes, a Lowe's spokesman informed WalletPop via telephone. He wouldn't, or couldn't divulge how many or what the sales items might be, but the underlying message is, look alive and check Facebook in the early hours.
The coupon codes can be applied immediately to items purchased on Lowes.com, and Black Friday will actually start on Thanksgiving day with online-only deals. Lowe's Black Friday ad will be posted on the retailer's website, but the videos containing coupon codes can only be accessed on Facebook.
As we head into the holiday season, savvy shoppers should be on the lookout for more deals like these.
