The holiday season is upon us what with only six weeks until Christmas and the so-called Black Friday shopping frenzy coming right up.

Many consumers are giving up Black Friday to spend time with family and get outdoors (62 and 25 percent, respectively).

Free membership allows consumers to shop online at over 2,000 of their favorite top-name retailers while earning a percentage of every purchase they make. Here are some of the facts you must know before visiting any of the stores this year.

Search for these codes on deal sharing communities and forums to see if you can use them in conjunction with the original Black Friday discount to save even more money.

Black Friday used to be a one-day event. Then be sure to check out Target on Cyber Monday because you can bet there will be lots of toys on sale.

Planned price cuts includes the Apple Watch Series 3 for $325, which usually starts at $329, and a five-quart KitchenAid Stand Mixer for $249.99, similar models at KitchenAid.com retail between $429.99 for $459.99. Check forums where people discuss retailers and customer experiences to ensure you don't get caught out. If you're not a fan of marketing emails set up an email account specifically for these sorts of things.

Some savings will be for lesser-known retailers who may not be Google approved, so always check that you're purchasing from a safe site.

Young people have been particularly appreciative of Cyber Monday, during which many online retailers offer discounts on everything one could possibly need. Make sure that you double-check shipping policy before you finalize any deal.
