Black Friday Review Roundup:
Vouchercloud’s top tips for buying tech on Black Friday:
Set a budget and stick to it
We all know how easy it is to get carried away with spending when it comes to buying the latest gadgets and gizmos. It doesn’t matter if you’re buying a Fitbit, iPhone or home entertainment system, set yourself a clear and defined budget – And stick to it! It’s easy to think that spending an extra £50 won’t matter too much but it can all add up if you break the budget on a number of items – remember Christmas is just around the corner.
Do your research
Most brands will start to announce their discounts before they go live on Black Friday, so try and take a look online or in store before the date and consider the products you’re interested in buying. Always look around for voucher codes on sites such as vouchercloud.com and HotDeals.com and extra discounts before purchasing a product online too.
Use tech to buy tech
There is no shame in using your existing tech items to buy more tech – we’ve all done it! You can use your current phone or tablet to download branded apps such as Amazon as they will have will have dedicated Black Friday tech landing pages so you can scan through deals quickly on the day.
Check if the product is the latest version
Many of the ‘deals’ you’ll see on Black Friday are a previous generation, or they may be poorer quality products that the retailer wants to clear from their stores! It doesn’t mean they’re not worth the investment, but it’s worth checking the specification against new devices just in case.
Don’t panic buy
Panic normally sets in, and most people will try and purchase all of their tech goods on the Friday, but remember that deals will nearly always last the whole weekend. It’s also worth considering that while Black Friday and Cyber Monday are huge events in the retail calendar, there are other sales events throughout the year such as Amazon Prime Day. If you don’t get your tech bargain on the Friday – it might be reduced further later in the year.
