Brace yourself: The official gala time of the year for all shoppers and retailers worldwide has arrived; the great Black Friday is here! Although this day needs no introduction, but if it isn’t celebrated in your country, then here you go – Black Friday is the name given to shopping day just after the Thanksgiving and is also known as the first official day for Christmas shopping. Let’s all now be ready to witness the busiest shopping weekend of the year and to let you plan your haul, here are some of the exciting offers and discounts.

Curry’s PC World
Currys PC World has launched incredible early deals and is also promising to match or beat the price you’d pay at Argos, DID Electrical, Appliances Delivered, Harvey Norman or Power City. Incase you happen to buy an item 2-3 days in advance and the price goes down on Black Friday, you can ask for a cashback on the price gap. Sounds great!
Amazon started the Black Friday deals on 16th and it will end on 25th. Be careful however of what card you use for Amazon payment since it has suffered major data breach that has caused customer’s names and email address to be disclosed on its website, just two days ahead of Black Friday. Though they have fixed the issue now, but let’s be careful; if you have already been affected, please make sure to change your passwords quickly.
Most retailers have tried to extend the holiday shopping window earlier this time. While there are lots of hot deals out there at the moment, I suggest you splurge on the costliest items starting from this Friday to Monday. I would also like to share with you all a few shopping tips that I follow to make the most of the Black Friday Sale:
- Make a list beforehand of what you want and try to stick to it on the shopping day to save yourself from buying stuff that you don’t want. (Been there, done that Lol) Let’s avoid expensive mistakes.
- Select and note the desired items and their article numbers in advance for online shopping.
- Order online around midnight as soon as the Sale starts and pickup from the nearest store the next day, which is a way to save time.
- Try to get to the stores right when they open or a little sooner to get in line.
- If you can’t find an item in best of the condition in store (due to multiple trying rounds by customers), you can note its item number and order it online. You’d be happy to find it arriving fresh and perfectly packed at your doorsteps within a few days.
If you know about any other discounts and codes, please drop it in the comments below. I would try to add them to this article for others to benefit from it. Have a great shopping weekend dolls!
