Black Friday 2019 is just around the corner (more sales?). Closely followed by the now equally popular Cyber Monday, there are bound to be deals, discounts and offers coming out of your ears.

We know how stressful the Black Friday weekend can be, that’s why we’re cutting in early to offer you some hacks to make sure you get the best deals. Whether you’re Christmas shopping early or simply bagging yourself some new clothes, here’s how to make sure you get the best out of Cyber Week.


When is Black Friday 2019?

Black Friday 2019 is on Friday, 29 November.




What is Black Friday?

It’s a good question – you’d be surprised at how many people participate in Black Friday sales without actually knowing what it is. In short, this date – originating in the US – is the day following Thanksgiving, marking the start of Christmas shopping. Way back when, it was said that on this date, due to the increase in shopping, business’ accounts would go from red into the black (the clear). It’s a good day all round.

What is Cyber Monday?

To put it simply, Cyber Monday 2019 is the Monday after Black Friday (who know?). This year, the day falls on Monday 2nd December 2019. So many people wonder whether are better deals after Black Friday. You’ll mostly find that the Cyber Monday deals are a slight step-up from Black Friday offers, but naturally, that will vary brand to brand.




Our 5 Top Tips For Black Friday Shopping

So many people wonder Black Friday Sales are actually worth it. Are they? We think so. As long as you go in with a game plan, you’ll be able to hack your way through with ease. Here’s what you need to know to save big:

  1. Know what you want: It’s all very well waiting to see what offers come your way on the big day, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for, it’s all too easy to be sucked in. Next thing you know, you’ve spent hundreds on a wardrobe you don’t really want but you simply couldn’t resist. In order to get the best Black Friday deals, you’ll actually save money on the key items you want. A great way to do this is by creating a wishlist with all the Black Friday clothes you’ve got your eye on.
  2. Keep your curiosity at bay. Seems silly, but if you start browsing Black Friday 78′ smart TVs, you’re just giving yourself the chance to be tempted.
  3. Compare prices. Some brands will have better offers than others – that’s just the way it is. If there’s something you like the look of, see if you can find it cheaper anywhere else. Remember, the more you save, the more you’re winning.
  4. Save it for Cyber Monday. If you think you can wait, you could be better off waiting for the Cyber Monday sales. The best Cyber Monday deals will be worth waiting for. If not that urgent… you can always wait until the next Black Friday!
  5. Know the store policies. There’s nothing worse than getting carried away with a Black Friday sale, only to change your mind but realise you’re stuck with your purchase. Make sure you can return in full, just to have your own back.
