MSN reports scoring great "Black Friday" deals doesn't require stress, getting up before dawn or waiting in lines that rival those at Disneyland.
You can get even better deals on this busy shopping day by shopping online.
Just in case you like the real shopping experience here are a few tips according to MSN that will ensure you get deals on Black Friday:
1. Scan as many retail ads as you can before the day.

3. Use price-comparison search engines to come up with the lowest bottom-line prices, including taxes and shipping.
4. Search for coupon codes and free shipping deals.
5. Check price-matching and return policies at retailers where you are likely to make a purchase.
