Popular for its messy sight of buyers rushing and racing for that last piece of their favourite gadgets, Black Friday is quite a sensational event of the year.
Also known as the American pre-Christmas sale, Black Friday witnesses unbelievable discounts on big brands on all products ranging from apparels and appliances to home décor and holidays. It wouldn’t be wrong to call it a pre-Christmas Santa for all those hoping to bag amazing goodies at thrift prices.
When is Black Friday?
The official Black Friday falls on the first Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, going live on November 29, it will last the entire weekend. To give you a fair margin, Black Friday deals will begin early on in November, or even mid-October – both on the high street and online.
Tips to Follow this Black Friday
Although there will be thousands of luring deals available, the key is to get the best value for your budget. Hence, make a list of all that you actually want.
The trick is not getting lured by all the last-hour deals. Research about the best price for the products you want in advance. This way, you’ll know if the sale deal is really discounted.
A pro tip would be to hunt for the cashback offers.
