ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany residents are on the hunt for good Black Friday deals.

Matthew Rouse, 30, has been checking for Black Friday deals at Dillard's in Albany Mall. 

"Looked to see what's kind of marked down, and come back and go forward it," said Rouse.

Button downs and slacks were just a few items Rouse plans to rack up on. 

"I like the neutral type colors that grey, blue is my favorite color so that really pops out at me," said Rouse.

So does the 40 percent discount

"That's my kind of carrying on," said Rouse.

He's an early riser, and we're talking one or two o'clock in the morning so he can get those door-busters. 

"Waiting, ready, as soon as they open I'm ready to go," said Rouse.

Ready with a chip-enabled credit card tucked away in his wallet to avoid the nightmare he experienced three years ago when he bought a TV during Target's massive data breach. 

"We were scared, checking our accounts every time we got a chance but things worked out for us," said Rouse.

But that wasn't the case for 40 million other credit card holders.

For those who plan to hunt for online deals, Neo's CEO Robert Collins said to make sure you're on a legit website. 

"That s at the end of https actually signifies that the sight is secure," said Collins.

Collins said to create a secure password and watch out for e-greeting cards that could contain a virus so you're not a target. 

"Clicking with care, we want to make sure hackers don't access to your computer because you click on the wrong thing," said Collins.

Rouse plans to buy household items on Amazon, but is excited about the rush of Black Friday.
