Got your eye on a certain beauty product but your budget is low? Hold on a few months as the countdown to Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, has officially begun. The mega sale day falls on 23 November and it promises massive discounts on skincare, makeup, fragrance and beauty technology. It’s the perfect time to spoil yourself or buy gifts for your beloved ones ahead of the Christmas period.
Here’s our guide on how to get the best deals this coming Black Friday and Cyber Monday:
Do you research
The best way to avoid getting a bad deal is to do your research first. Research the items you want to buy and find out the cheapest price. You need to be knowledgeable about the product and its regular retail price. Many brands announce the deals in advance so look around for voucher codes on websites.
Make a list of items you want to purchase over Black Friday, read the reviews and make sure you know the difference between a good and bad version of that product.
Follow your favourite shops on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and sign up to its deals newsletter to get the latest on any offers.
Decide which stores you want to shop at this year, visit their website and sign up for email newsletters. It is quite important that you sign up for promotions at least two weeks before Black Friday. There is a possibility that the emails can take time before they start to generate, so you want to allow enough time to get added to the email marketing list.
Also, monitor brands on social media as they will drop hints (and prices) so keep any eye on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Check websites like Quidco and TopCashback before you place your order.
I know, it might be tempting to snap up loads of items on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but here’s how you can guarantee you’re getting a good deal. Websites like PriceHistory, PriceSpy, and CamelCamelCamel will give you information on prices so you can see how much you should pay. Check websites like Quidco and TopCashback before you place your order. Cashback websites pay you to shop. All you have to do is click through their links and the money is added to your online account, usually within 14 days.
