Unless you complete your holiday shopping before Halloween, you might be enticed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. These tips may help you save time and money.

Beat the crowds. If you shop early in the season, items are more likely to be in stock and you may face fewer shipping delays. Sales often start well before Black Friday, so keep an eye out for special promotions at least a week or two ahead. Signing up for online or social media deal alerts can help. 

Research pricing. Knowing whether a deal is truly good can be tricky, but many websites and phone apps are available that can help you compare items and prices as you shop. 

Set up accounts. To complete purchases quickly, consider saving your information and shipping addresses on trusted online accounts with your favorite retailers. Make it a habit to search for promotional and coupon codes that you can use at checkout. Review shipping costs, too, to avoid paying more than you expect.

Track purchases. To help you stick with your budget, keep track of what you spend. If you're shopping with credit, try using one card for everything so you can quickly review your spending. A rewards card may give you cash back, points, or miles that you can redeem in the future, but watch out for high interest rates if you can't pay off the balance in full. 

Use cash. Consider using a debit card or cash for in-store purchases. Carrying only a predetermined amount of money in your wallet may help you avoid overspending.

Pay attention to the fine print. Retailers may have special policies in place for the holiday season. Knowing the time limits for exchanges or returns is especially important when you're shopping early. Ask for gift receipts and keep your own copies.

Watch out for exclusions. Promotional prices might be limited to certain items and may expire quickly, so understand the details. 

Look for price guarantees. If you buy an item that later goes on sale, some retailers will refund the difference within certain time limits. Retailers may also match a competitor's price on an identical item (you may need to provide proof of the purchase).

We were joined by sponsor Fury Gold Mines’ Chair Ivan Bebek and CEO Tim Clark to get the latest on the just announced sale of its Homestake Project to Dolly Varden Silver (TSX.V: DV). It’s a $50 million deal for which Fury gets CAD $5 million in cash and the balance in DV shares, along with two board seats. In the words of Clark, “…the combination of these two adjacent assets is very strong. Combining our Homestake Project with the DV Project creates an attractive opportunity to immediately establish shareholder value through the potential synergies that result from their regional proximity.” It’s been no secret that Chair Bebek had been looking to sell-off Homestake. He observed that these two projects were always meant to be together and that there’s huge upside potential for Fury, once DV begins executing on its plan.

In the meantime, Fury receives a substantial cash infusion, which when combined with a $2 million payment from Quebec, puts off their need to raise fresh capital. They can continue to focus upon their core projects, Committee Bay and Eau Claire. And for good reason too. Several days ago, Fury announced that they had drilled 13.93 g/t of Gold over a hefty 10 meters. These were the best drill results in five years. Clark sees this achievement as opening up substantial expansion opportunities and it confirms the thesis that Committee Bay represents a major gold exploration opportunity.

Most importantly for shareholders, the last week has seen company’s future value increased both by the drill bit and the Homestake sale, which gives Fury a dual opportunity for share price appreciation. (We own shares)
