Follow your favourite shops and brands

Many top brands post their deals ahead of the day across their social media platforms for loyal customers to see first. 

So make sure that you're following your favourite brands and that you're signed up to their email alerts so you're the first to know and don't miss out on any surprise deals. 

Plan ahead

Ahead of the day work out a list of all the brands and shops you want to spend some cash in and even work out upcoming birthday and Christmas presents to buy ahead. 

Now is the perfect time to start looking for Black Friday deals as many brands have already announced their top deals. 

So look online, bookmark, and make a note of what brands you want to grab some deals from. 

Don't focus on price

We all know that it's best to shop around to make sure you have the best deal in your basket. 

But don't just look at the price, work out the maths as some shops may offer free shipping that is saving you more money on the overall price of the item. 

Some may have a better warranty on electrical items or a better returns policy, so it's worth working out the best value.

Be vigilant towards scams

More and more people are shopping online due to the pandemic but that has also meant a rise in scammers taking advantage of shoppers. 

So when looking for Black Friday deals, make sure you only use the brand's official website, if there's a small green padlock in the URL bar, you are in the right spot. 

Plus its worth using PayPal as its a good way to keep your money safe and you won't need to entre your bank details into every website.
