Do’s and Don’ts on Black Friday
Let’s take a look at the Do’s and Don’ts of Black Friday
1. Preview Advertisements
We are generally in a habit to check only the percentage of discount that a store is offering without going through the advertisement thoroughly. An advertisement speaks a lot of the terms and conditions and the things that a store has to offer. So, make it a habit to observe them carefully so that you don’t waste your time visiting there for a certain thing unnecessarily.
The advertisements also let you know about the duration of the deal and the time within which you can get the best deals. Other than that there can be freebies which are sometimes better than the discounted prices.
2. Utilize Digital Media
Almost every brand has its presence in digital media whether it’s on social networking platforms or mobile applications. Like their pages on social media and check out their apps to stay updated with the deals and discounts they have to offer on Black Friday.
The brands start rolling the deals days before the Black Friday to attract more customers and also to make a strong hold on the market. And, most importantly it is not only about the Black Friday, but there would be deals and discounts on the other days as well and what’s the better source to get all the information about them apart from the brand’s own social media page.
3. Plan a Budget
We often tend to overspend on Black Friday, to avoid this problem it is best to set a budget and stick to it. In fact, it is very important to set a budget for Black Friday, as it greatly helps in avoiding spending on things that we don’t want actually, but get attracted by the deal and buy that for no reason.
4. Wear Comfortable Shoes
In this case, it is not at all a good idea to wear uncomfortable shoes and be in pain while running or making a purchase. Trust me, a pair of uncomfortable shoes will make you wrap up your shopping within a few hours, but comfortable shoes or comfortable winter boots will make you do it for long, even for the whole day and night.
Don’t of Black Friday
1. Don’t Buy Unnecessary Stuff
It hard to deny that we often pack our shopping bags with the kind of stuff that is actually not needed. Say a big no to this habit and avoid doing that completely, because by doing this you are actually stuffing your home with waste and also wasting your money on buying those unnecessary things.
2. Don’t Buy Anything in RushAlways make sure to avoid rush while buying things on Black Friday, just check that it should not be defected or broken or either pre-used. We often tend to avoid these minor things because of Black Friday exotic deals, but end up buying defective, pre-used things.
3. Don’t Adhere Solely to Offline Shopping
It is not only about the offline shopping anymore, in fact, the online shopping has increased to a great extent in the last few years. Shoppers like to be in the comfort of their homes instead of going out and stand in long queues.
Many online shopping stores also offer some great discounts that are sometimes better than the offline stores. So, check all the circulars of stores and brands in advance regarding online or offline shopping and plan your shopping destination accordingly.
