Crazy as the long lines seem, Black Friday is almost a sacred holiday for some dedicated shoppers. Who doesn’t love a good deal? That’s why we created a guide on how to take advantage of all the one-day sales!

If long lines aren’t for you, slip some theatre tickets in a stocking for someone special this Christmas. It only takes 30 seconds to buy the memorable gift of live theatre! TodayTix Toronto will be having a Black Friday 24-Hour Flash Sale starting at midnight on the 24th! You will find deals on shows like A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, Avenue QSunday Night Live, by using code FRIDAY15 for an additional 15% off tickets.

We’ve also got some great offers coming your way this Monday. Sign up here to be alerted when the Cyber Monday deals become available.


If you want to stock pile gifts like a true Daddy Warbucks…

…follow our guide for how to make the most out of Black Friday!


Familiarize yourself with deals a few days before.

One can never be too prepared or specific in terms of what they want.


Decide how much you want to spend in advance.

Don’t go overboard just because good deals are abundant.


Find which items are discounted online and which items will be in stores.

Knowing what’s where is key to strategy as you don’t want to wait in line at the wrong place. You also may want to wait for Cyber Monday for some items.


If you found a golden item (or 20), pick the store where you will wait in line.

You don’t want to brave the lines and the stampedes unless there are items you absolutely must acquire in person.


Get caffeine ready for the Big Day.

Or do whatever you need to do to be alert and prepared.


Remember to respect your fellow shoppers!

Breathe and take your time. Nothing will ruin the magic like getting into trouble!


And of course, remember why you’re there!

There’s nothing wrong with getting some things for yourself! But it is the season for giving, so have fun finding presents for all the loved ones in your life.

Get ready for the holiday season early this year. Don’t sleep on all the deals available Friday and Monday at TodayTix and beyond!
