TIPS ON GETTING THE BEST DEALS ON BLACK FRIDAY
- Research Ahead Of Black Friday
It is important that you are prepared for the Black Friday shopping ahead of time. Carry out research on products you intend to purchase on the day as this allows you to make an informed decision on which products to go after. A bad product remains a bad product no matter how cheap it is.
- Take Advantage Of Night Owl Discounts On Thanksgiving
Those who shop over the Internet have the opportunity of shopping online in the predawn hours of Black Friday. A lot of retailers will post Black Friday specials that can be ordered online and then picked up at a local store close to you. Also, Special “web only” and “app only” deals will be available starting as early as Thanksgiving day, so take advantage of these.
- Bring The Ads
Although many stores like Travelstart Nigeria on Arik Air offer a “lowest price” guarantee, some other stores might require you to produce proof of the exact product that is being advertised for less. So ensure you take along any print ads you have saved with you. Most local retailers would not meet Internet prices even when the product is advertised on the same company’s website, but trying does no harm, does it? Print the webpage that details the product and also shows the advertised price and take it along with you when visiting the local store, it might give you additional bargaining power and help you to get the salesperson to waive other charges such as assembly fees.
- Know Store Policies
You should know the policies of a store on returns so as to help you determine where best to buy. Knowing the policies of stores on returns can help you determine where to buy. A lot of retailers are including restocking fees and shorter return deadlines and almost all the major retail chains have clamped down on requiring receipts for returns and exchanges. They now maintain a database of individuals who tend to abuse return policies. If you get on the abuse list of a retailer, prepare to get turned down.
- Ask For Gift Receipts
Generally, gift receipts only include a description of the item purchased but not the amount you paid for the item. When you include gift receipts inside gift boxes, it makes it easier for the gift recipient to make returns or exchanges. However, the recipient might still be turned down for returning or exchanging the item without proof of purchase or risk exchanging the item at the current selling price of the item.
The above tips will help you make the most of the deals on offer next time Black Friday is around. Read and understand them and be ready to cash in on some major savings on your Black Friday shopping.
