Black Friday is a huge shopping event which could see you bag a bargain just in time for Christmas – if you approach it sensibly.
Held on the last Friday in November, and the weeks leading up to it, you can often find incredible deals from some of the biggest brands and retailers. But with so many offers available, how can you be sure you’re getting the most for your money?
With these simple tips, you can avoid the pitfalls and prepare yourself for a successful Black Friday shopping trip…
- Decide what you’re looking for
It can be easy to get carried away and buy things that weren’t on your shopping list. What do you need? To ensure your saving really is a bargain, make sure your purchase is something you were going to buy anyway. This can be a great time to buy Christmas gifts – but plan in advance what the recipient would really like to receive.
- Start researching now
How much does the item you want cost full price? Think about the features you want your item to have and get an idea of how much available models would cost you today, then you’re all set to decide whether the Black Friday saving is a good deal.
- Take advantage of Price Match policies
Always compare prices to ensure you’re getting the best deal. Many brands and retailers offer a Price Match policy – so if you’ve spotted the same thing cheaper elsewhere, they will match the price.
- Think about guarantees
It’s great to grab a discount, but even better to know that your product will be covered when the excitement dies down. Different retailers and brands offer variable guarantee lengths, so it’s worth comparing these if you’re buying something that you’re hoping to use for years to come.
