CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- There are already many “Black Friday” sales and offers from retailers, but consumers are being warned that not all of them are good deals.

Steve Bernas of the Better Business Bureau says while some “Black Friday” offers are legitimate, others either won’t save you much money or could be scams in disguise.

Bernas offers a few tips to avoid getting ripped off from bogus “Black Friday” sales.

He says research “Black Friday” offers before you buy.

He also suggests reading the fine print on any “Black Friday” offer, shopping with retailers you know and trust, getting gift receipts and making sure you understand the return policies and warranties on products you buy.
