The once-a-year events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday leave us either missing out on what we wanted to get a deal on or panic buying things we clearly don’t need.

Here’s our top tips on how to avoid over-spending and maximising your chances of getting everything you need.

TIP 1: SOCIAL MEDIA

Brands will start promoting their deals a week or so in advance prior to Black Friday, it’ll give you a sneak peak of what deals and products will be going live.

TIP 2: BE PREPARED

Have your card details ready, having your details already set up to the webstore will allow a quick checkout. The busiest online shopping days of the year, websites may crash so by having your details ready you’ll be able to grab the goods you need.

TIP 3: GET YOUR FAVOURITES DOWN

The is the key, as it’s the only way you’ll be able to keep track of where you’d like to shop once the countdown hits 0:00. Make a list of retailers and create your wishlist to keep you focused.

TIP 4: WISHLIST

The sneakiest tip of all, it might be along shot, but it could be totally worth it! Start putting items into your basket leading up to Black Friday or adding to your wishlist – this way you’ll get exactly what you know you want, get in, checkout, and get out.
