Black Friday shopping tips
We all know a massive sale can get extremely busy. It can be overwhelming with all the deals available, and things can sell out before you have even had a chance to put them in your basket! That’s why we have some tips on how to survive Black Friday, and how to find the best deals quickly so you get the things you really want:
Don’t be late for the party
While there might be lots of deals, stock is not unlimited. Don’t wait to shop the sale, because everyone else will be using it to do their Christmas shopping, so you have to get there fast!
If you’re bright and early for Currys Black Tag Sale, you can snag the products you were hoping for. And if you’re shopping in-store, arriving early means you can avoid the long queues. Smaller items like fitness trackers, printers and laptops may go quickly, so grab them first. If you’re buying big appliances or TVs, you’ll need to ask a member of the Currys team for assistance, so get the smaller purchases out of the way first.
Make a list and check it twice
Currys Black Tag Sale has so many deals that you will want to grab everything you can! This is exactly why you need to plan before you shop, or you will forget what you were looking for in the first place.
Write a list of everything you are looking for – maybe you’re searching for a brand-new laptop for work, or you have your eye on a new fridge for the house. Write down what you should be searching for, because having a plan means you can quickly stock up on your list (either for yourself or some gifts for Christmas), without being side-tracked along the way.
Take a friend along
To make the most of the weekend, why not bring a buddy and go tag-team shopping? With a friend along for the ride, you can coordinate a plan of attack before you head out and split your wish lists between you. So, if you don’t spot something, your friend will.
Not only does this divide the shopping, but they are an extra pair of hands to carry big items back to the car. It’s also just so much more fun to shop with your buddy in tow!
Stick to your budget
You can easily get caught up in the excitement of Black Friday, so planning your budget before you shop is recommended. Having your shopping list ready to go is especially useful for this, as this will help you decide in advance how much you want your Black Friday shopping spree to cost.
Make sure you have enough in your budget for the big-ticket items such as a new fridge or TV. Figure out what the most important products are and focus on them, then if you have enough left over in your pre-planned budget, splurge out on the smaller pieces.
Dress for shopping success
With the mornings getting darker and colder, and the evenings practically the same, you need to dress smart for your shopping spree. Leave your coat in the car, don your comfiest shoes, and make sure your clothes are suitable for all types of shopping, from hauling a TV to your car to trying out clothes.
But remember to be mindful of yourself and others this Black Friday by wearing your face mask and socially distancing from other shoppers.
