2. Black Friday 2018 – Shopping Tips
1. Plan ahead
The inventory of discounted items on black Friday is limited on most websites, so the time for making decisions is limited as well.
It is recommended to make a wishlist of products before Black Friday, and decide on a budget for buying them, so that if you find them at a good price you can buy them quickly.
Planning ahead can also help you avoid impulsive purchases of products that you don’t really need.
Well organized customers will be familiar with the regular prices of the products they wish to buy, so it would be much easier for them to identify a good deal when they see it.
Another good idea is to add the relevant products to your shopping cart in advance.
2. When you see a product from your list at a good price – Buy it
Black Friday is not a good day for trying to find the best deal on the web. “Perfect is the enemy of good” and one can easily miss out attractive deals while trying to find the best one.
Hundreds of millions of buyers are likely to look for bargains on Black Friday 2018, so if you find something you want at a good price, simply click the “Buy” button and move on to the next product.
3. If you do not have a lot of time for searching – go straight to the main shopping websites

4. Sign up to the relevant sites before Black Friday
Signing up to the relevant websites before Black Friday itself can help us to save time at the moment of truth.
If you plan on making a purchase on Amazon – It is recommended to sign up to the Amazon Prime service, in order to receive shipping benefits, promotions updates and more.
5. Black Friday is a day for working with a computer or a tablet – It is more difficult to find good opportunities on a mobile phone.
Most major shopping sites have user friendly mobile versions, but it still is more difficult to review a large number of offers and promotions on a mobile phone, than on the larger screens of a computer or a tablet.
6. Shipping costs can turn a good deal sour
National and international shipping costs can be negligible in some cases, but in other cases they can turn a good offer into an unattractive one.
Some of the main US sites, such as Walmart, Bestbuy and Target have limited or no international shipping options, requiring the use of companies that provide local US addresses and an international forwarding service.
7. Black Friday begins actually on Thursday night, and on some sites you can find Black friday deals even a week before Black Friday
Some shopping sites will attempt to capture media coverage by early advertising of special deals, but in most cases they will keep the best deals for Black Friday itself.
