As one of its early Black Friday special deals, Macy's offers a selection of women's boots for $19.99. Pad your order with a beauty item (they start at $3) to bag free shipping; otherwise, shipping adds $10.95. (In-store pickup may also be available.) That's a savings of $40 to $50 off list price. Deal ends November 25.
These tips and tools can help you recoup thousands of dollars if the unthinkable happens.
