Black Friday seems to have come earlier than I expected this year and I’ve seen sales go up since last week so I thought I better start sharing my tips & the best deals.
Let’s start with my tips, I don’t have too many and they’re pretty basic…
1. Know what you want
You have to be quick on Black Friday so knowing what you want makes everything much easier. Have a browse on your favourite websites and save the products you want or make a list of everything you would like to buy.
2. Have an action plan
Prioritise what you want and start there, if you’re planning to just have a browse on some websites/ in some stores, keep them to last as they’ll slow you the most.
3. Find the best deals
Sometimes it’s good to look around, for example; if you’re after a camera or a branded bag which is available from a variety of stores have a look around to see which one has the best offer one.
4. Start your Christmas shopping
Christmas is 4 weeks away, FOUR WEEKS! Start your Christmas shopping now and save yourself some £££. There are some fabulous gifts going on offer this Friday which i can’t tell you about yet but check back Friday and I’ll tell you all about them!
5. Arrive early
Whether you’re braving the stores (and if you are you’re far braver than I am!) or you’re shopping online arrive early. I’ll be staying up until midnight for the start of most of the sales and I recommend you do the same. If you’re heading in-store, find out what time it opens and aim to be there within the first hour or so, there’s no point getting there after all the products have been bought.
6. Don’t forget about Cyber Monday
If your favourite store hasn’t gone on sale on Friday don’t be disheartened, some stores only release their online offers on Monday for Cyber Monday.
7. Don’t buy something just because it’s on sale
It’s so tempting to buy something because it’s a good offer but if you don’t need it or really want it, don’t buy it. It’s not a good offer, that’s a waste of money.
Now remember some of these are ‘warm-up sales’ and are likely to have better offers on in a few days, but here’s what has already started…
I suspect they’ll have more offers coming Friday but next week’s star buy (starts tomorrow) is the Sanctuary Make a Wish Gift Set, usually £45, is £23 and my absolute dream Black Friday pick is the Real Technique Brushes which have been reduced from £100 to just £40. £40 for 10 brushes and two sponges, what a steal!
up to 40% off selected items, I’ll take one of everything pleaseee.
So since it’s still a few days until Black Friday keep checking this post for update sale codes and links but on Friday at Midnight I shall be sharing both a video and blog post with all my must-have amazing deals and trust me, there are some you don’t want to miss!
PS. let me know if you find any other great offers or if you’re having any issues with the code/links I featured
