Black Friday originates from the United States. It is the day after Thanksgiving, which marks the beginning of holiday shopping. The name of Black Friday refers to the chaos caused by the crowd of shoppers who are looking to grab the best deals.
According to Curry's report, the most popular products last year were LG and Samsung TVs, coffee machines, Dyson vacuum cleaners, and HP laptops with over 2 billion seconds (over 63 years) time spent on their site in 24 hours.
Buy online. According to The Telegraph, online spendings had a 20% increase last year from the year before. We expect that Black Friday in 2018 will bring more online deals than in previous years.
Be early. Last year big brands like Amazon, Curry's, Boots and more started to offer deals up to 2 weeks before Black Friday. (Tip: sign up to our newsletter on the bottom of this page and don't miss out on the best deals.)
Make a list before checking out the deals. It's easy to lose control when you see the discounts. The easiest way to stay in control is to decide before researching how much you are willing to spend.
Watch out for spam emails. Be cautious if you receive an email from a brand you don't remember signing up for. It is most likely a scam if the discounts are too good to be true and the text has grammatical errors.
Make sure you're on the right site. This is especially important if you clicked through to the website from an unsolicited email. Don't buy from websites with misleading spellings, such as "www.appel.com". It's an obvious tip, but it's worth remembering to check the site address when the adrenaline kicks at a fake 80% discount on the iPhone X.
Only give your credit card details on secure websites. Look for “https” at the beginning of the URL on the checkout page. If it says “http” the site owners didn't make the effort to secure your payment details. These aren't always scam sites, but would you buy from someone who doesn't protect your credit card information?
In-store purchases: you aren't necessarily entitled to a full refund if you change your mind about a purchase and return a non-faulty product. You might get a partial refund, a credit note, an exchange, or nothing.
Online Purchases: you have a legal right to a full refund for a non-faulty product if you change your mind within 14 days of the purchase.
