Black Friday, 29 November 2019 is the biggest anticipated shopping day of the year. With steals buzzing on your screens and endless queues, you’re most likely to make a hole in your pocket if there’s no planning beforehand.
To get the most out of Black Friday, make sure you’re well prepared for promotions taking place.
We’ve put together five top tips to make your experience stress-free and pleasant. We also share the BEST deals you should know about this year…
Black Friday Prep
- Wish list: It can get very chaotic on black day and the last thing you want is to glance through categories all day long. Prepare a wish list to guide you through what you can realistically afford and what you actually need.
- Bookmark your websites: Planning to do online shopping? Browse through websites the night before and bookmark the ones you like. Familiarise yourself with the website before hand and pre-load your payment details. This will make it easier to just focus on the deals.
- Squad goals: Black Friday is not a one-man’s show. In order for you to snag the best deals out of it, you’ll need a team to split the list with.
- Turn on notifications: Be in the know by signing up for newsletters, reading through local newspapers, print ads and staying up to date on social media.
- Set a budget: Nothing is more daunting then having to organise a budget for what you can afford on Black Friday, but having a well-planned budget can help you make the most of your bargain-hunting.
