This year, Black Friday falls on Friday 27th November so make sure there’s a note in your calendars and that you’re ready to get shopping. To ensure you don’t miss out on the most sought after deals, our team here at NetVoucherCodes have prepared a list of ‘Do’s & Don’ts’ for Black Friday. By following our tips you can avoid missing out on the best bargains while getting the most for your hard-earned cash.

DO:

1. Check voucher sites

Not only will you find great deals with retailers themselves, but you can find a number of bargains on voucher code sites including NetVoucherCodes. Many voucher sites feature deals and codes that you may not have seen on your chosen retailer’s website. So, do your research beforehand to save the maximum amount on your order.

2. Use apps

There are many apps which you can download onto your Smartphone or Android which feature everything you need to know about Black Friday. Compare prices and view live feeds of new deals and price drops. Some retailers even offer exclusive discounts for app users, so it’s worth checking the app store during your preparations for Black Friday.

3. Compare online and in-store prices

There is nothing more soul destroying than buying something and then seeing it later on for a cheaper price. Three words - do your research. Before Black Friday arrives, make sure you thoroughly check online and in-store deals to see which option provides the best discount. This is essential if you’re looking for a high value item. It may take some time, but the savings will make it worth your while.

4. Check social media channels

Before heading online or in-store, have a quick browse through your favourite shop’s social channels. Often, social media is the first place they update with the latest offers and exclusive deals. Supermarkets also tend to update customers on how busy their stores are and how much stock is left via social media, so make sure you’re following all the relevant accounts to stay in the know.

6. Write a list

What do you need to buy on Black Friday? Make a list of everything you want to buy and stick to it. Going into Black Friday without an idea of what you want means you're more likely to get overwhelmed and spend on products you don't really need.

7. Start early

In recent years, many retailers have started their Black Friday sales early to avoid too much chaos on the day. In the week leading up to the big day, retailers will start promoting their sale, so keep an eye out online and on social media to see which sites are holding weekly sales.

8. Check emails

Many retailers will bombard you with newsletters and alerts on their daily deals during the week leading up to Black Friday. Although it may be annoying any other time of the year, during Black Friday week these newsletters can save you a lot of time. Make a note of the retailers with the best deals and delete the rest of the emails that you’re not interested in.

9. Have fun

Try not to stress if you lose out on something you wanted. At the end of the day, it’s just shopping and it shouldn’t feel like a chore. Get organised and hopefully you won’t feel as overwhelmed. And if you do miss out on something, don’t worry, there’s always Cyber Monday!

DON’T:

1. Don’t assume every deal is a great deal

If you find a deal you think might be too good to be true, it probably is. Sometimes when it looks as though you’re saving a lot on an item, you’re actually not, retailers have just increased the original price. Make sure you’re aware of before prices in advance so you can judge whether or not you’re getting a good deal.

2. Don’t buy for the sake of it

Before making a purchase, always ask yourself, do I need this? If you can live without it, leave it on the shelf. If you miss out on something you need, wait until the January sale. Many retailers also try to push multi-buy deals, when in reality it’s cheaper to just buy the product you originally wanted. Don’t get caught up in this and end up buying two other things you didn’t really need just because there was a deal on.

3. Avoid impulse buying

To avoid overspending this Black Friday, try not to impulse buy. The more you impulsively spend, the more likely you are to buy something you don’t need. Have a list prepared of the things you’re looking for and stick to it. It's much better to leave with one major product you need rather than several smaller ones that you don't.

4. Don’t get caught up in the frenzy

If you’re heading to the high street or supermarkets this Black Friday, try not to get caught up in the chaos. Avoid barging, pushing or arguing with other customers. Christmas shopping should be merry and it’s not the end of the world if you don’t get something you want. There will always be other festive sales. Make sure you stay safe and wear your mask too!

5. Don’t rely on it for your Christmas gifts

You’re sure to find a good deal or two on Black Friday, but don’t rely on it as your soul day for Christmas shopping. Not everything you need will be on sale or discounted and things may go out of stock quickly.

6. Don’t spend on a debit card

The best way to stay protected online is to spend on a credit card or through PayPal. Consider one of these options to be absolutely sure your money is safe.

7. Don’t shop in-store

The best way to avoid all the fuss and stress of in-store Black Friday shopping is to not go altogether. And, now that COVID-19 is an issue in our lives, going to busy stores may be too risky, not to mention the queues will be horrendous, so it’s best to shop online. Most retailers offer the same deals online that they do in-store anyway, and oftentimes online deals are actually better than the ones you find in shops.
