Black Friday, the biggest sale of the year, is just over a week away – the day itself is November 23rd, and if you haven’t started your Christmas shopping yet, now is the time to!
To make the most out of the huge savings available in the run up to Black Friday (and the even bigger ones on Friday 23rd), it’s best to have a plan; if you know what to shop for and where the best deals are going to be, you can end up saving hundreds. From big department stores and clothes shops, to electronics and homeware products, more retailers than ever now take part in Black Friday so you’ll find tons of great discounts and offers.
Whether you’re planning to brave the busy stores and shopping crowds, or stay home and shop online (remember Qmee will help you find the best deals), there are certain items that are always worth waiting for and buying on Black Friday.
Take a look some of the best things to buy…
Home appliances – items such as toasters, coffee makers, blenders and microwaves drop down to extremely low prices after Thanksgiving. If you want to get more serious about your kitchen, now is the time to do so! If you’ve been waiting for a good deal before buying that shiny new appliance, that time is just over a week away.
TVs – there are always deals across a wide number of stores and prices are usually cut but huge amounts; televisions are more likely to be sold at the lowest price of the year during Black Friday. One of the reasons TVs are sold are such low prices on this day is because January isn’t too far away, and that’s when new products are introduced to the market and old models become discontinued.
Electronics – three of the best things to buy on Black Friday are laptops, tablets and smartphones as they always have some of the greatest prices, discounts and deals going. The offers may often be on slightly older models, but they still aren’t that old as we know new models are brought out all the time! Black Friday is the best day of the year to buy your electronics if you don’t mind being slightly behind with your technology
Toys – it’s the perfect day for toy shopping! A lot of stores will open early on November 23rd and they’ll be offering some of the best deals of the year. If you’re planning on buying holiday gifts from Santa, this is a great time to start.
Clothes – even clothes retailers have jumped on the Black Friday bandwagon and many will be providing great discounts and offers. It’s a great time to buy your winter clothes, even if you don’t need them yet, just to make sure you don’t miss out on all of the fantastic prices.
Remember, when you’re trying to save cash on Black Friday the most important thing is to have a plan rather then to impulse buy – if you go to a store with the idea of looking at what’s on sale and making a “there and then” decision, you could end up spending more money. So over the next week, have a look at what’s on sale, see if it’s right for you, and then look for the best price.
