In less than a month it will be Black Friday and today I am sharing some fantastic tips in collaboration with A.O.com to help you make the most of the Black Friday bargains. Every year there is something my husband and I need. It may be a new Vacuum cleaner, a microwave or something more fun like a laptop. As Black Friday have great deals especially when it comes to electronic goods we usually plan out what we need, save up and bag the bargains we “need” when the prices are great.
In fact, this year I am on the lookout for a new cell phone and a Vacuum cleaner. My phone stopped working at the start of the year and so my husband and I have been sharing a phone for most of 2017. It’s time for me to get my own phone again and I’m hoping to bag a bargain on the 24th November. Last year we purchased a fantastic microwave and the year before a blender. I think the key to getting bargain priced items during the Black Friday period is being prepared and with this said I am sharing some top tips for Black Friday shopping.
Top Black Friday Tips
Be prepared. The best thing you can do to prepare is to do your research. Look up the regular prices and then start searching the ad’s in the papers and online to see what is going to be on special. Doing your homework is so important. If you know the usual prices then you can make sure you do get a good discount on that item you are looking for.
Be cash smart. Last year Black Friday was a day of crazy sales and increased internet usage. With this comes opportunities for phishing scams and identity theft. Make sure if your’e ordering online that you have a safe and secure password. Avoid using a public computer to purchase items, keep your receipts and protect your purchases.
Black Friday can be a day of impulse buying. Sometimes we can purchase items which we may regret afterwards. That’s why it’s good to make a list of needs and wants. It’s okay to buy something special you might not have planned on, but be sure to have a list of what you need and a list of what you would like so you can buy smart.
Get social. Check out social media. This is a great place to find out the best places for items your wanting. Even on the day, people will share discoveries and bargains so stay close to Facebook and twitter and you may just find out about a great last minute deal.
Black Friday is a great day for purchasing big ticket items. We recently received a new LG washing machine from A.O.com and I know products like this are often heavily discounted. You may like to watch my review because this is the best washing machine I’ve ever had and you never know what deals you can get on Black Friday.
So these are my top tips. What have you purchased on Black Fridays? Is there anything your on the lookout for this year?
