Maybe I should ask first if you do the whole Black Friday thing? Honestly, I didn’t in the beginning when it first launched in South Africa but now I am kinda hooked especially if it’s a really good saving!

The big question many people ask if it’s actually worth it? The reality is that many stores have already raised their prices for the festive season but on this day, they bring it down a little lower for you.

For me, it is because I will most probably pay 10-20% more for the same item over December.

So, if you are thinking about doing Black Friday this year, here are a few of my tips to stay on top of it and don’t get sucked into every sale because let’s face it, it is easy to buy without thinking much.

When is Black Friday?

Black Friday 2019 falls on November 29th and Because Black Friday was originally a brick and mortar tradition, online retailers have adapted and taken Black Friday to the next level by extending it over the weekend and introducing Cyber Monday where prices drop even further. Naturally, Cyber Monday 2019 will be on the 2nd of December.

How to prepare for Black Friday:

  1. Make a list of stores/websites you want to check out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Let’s be honest, as much as we would like to scroll through various websites or visit many stores, it won’t be possible. You will get frustrated. Planning is key!
  2. Decide on a budget and stick to it – I try to balance between home, Christmas gifts, and items I’ve been after for a long time for myself.
  3. Look at what are the terms and conditions for items bought on Black Friday.
  4. I normally shortlist 3 websites for Black Friday (Superbalist is always on that list) – I prefer shopping online than in-store.
  5. Create an account, download the app, save your address, etc and start creating your wish list now! This is an important step because it also limits you from buying unnecessary things.
  6. Stay up or wake up at 11 pm to prepare for midnight! All sales start at midnight so you need to be that keyboard warrior that will be one of the first people on the site.
  7. Open at least 2 of your 3 websites on different devices. You definitely need a tag team partner to win at Black Friday.

I’ve already started creating my wish lists on Takealot.com and Superbalist.

Superbalist is currently having Pre-Black Friday sales up to 40% off!
