Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with TN Mornings at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

A warning about Black Friday "deals" this morning. Some of those so-called terrific doorbuster sales, are not so terrific afterall.

The website, "nerdwallet.com" looked at Black Friday deals for several popular retailers like Dicks Sporting Goods, Lowe's and Staples. The website found the same exact items have the same exact sale price this year.

So how do you avoid getting ripped off on Black Friday?

First, know what you are looking for. Black Friday is not the day to browse.

Second, set a budget and stick to it, so you are less likely to fall victim to an attractive discount price tag.

Third, be able to identify quality. A lot of items are made cheaply so it has a cheaper price tag.

Lastly, always compare prices.

Remember, if a deal seems to good to be true, it likely is.
