Black Friday shopping is often filled with chaos, but instead of store-hopping to find the best deal, a new report has dubbed the best places to shop for savings.

The report from personal-finance website WalletHub surveyed 8,000 Black Friday store deals from 35 of the biggest U.S. retailers. WalletHub then identified the stores offering the biggest discounts in various categories, including appliances, jewelery and toys.

Macy's topped the list with the highest overall discount rate at 63.35 percent. 

Other department store giants, such as Kohl's and Sears, took sixth and tenth place, respectively.

Wallethub also warned against Black-Friday "traps" -- customers should aim for a 39 percent discount or higher when shopping Black Friday deals.
