One of the most anticipated days for everyone in Australia is approaching. We're all hunkered down waiting for the best deals to go out and buy that thing we want so badly or get a head start on those Christmas presents. But how do we get ready? Follow this little guide to help you make the most of the day.
Time is money. Start thinking about what you want to look for in advance, because during these days the offers fly and the products sell out very quickly. Now is a good time to sit down and write down everything you need and want to look for in Australia's shops and supermarkets. You can make a list by category or prioritise your shopping so you don't have to decide at the last minute. Be prepared in advance and you'll get more out of your Black Friday.
Confirm the sales
As you prepare for the day of discounts and offers, we suggest you keep track of the cost of the products you are looking at. This will allow you to check if they are really offering you a good deal or if the prices were inflated to end up paying the same as now. With a good analysis you can avoid scams and make the most of your search in online shops.
Pay attention to security
This is a fundamental issue when it comes to shopping on Black Friday. In 2020, a 42% increase in losses due to online scams was reported. That's why you need to pay close attention when shopping anywhere in Australia. We need to make sure that the sites are safe, have security certifications and actually belong to the merchant we choose. It is also important to do your research and check comments or reviews to verify that the products arrive at your home. Don't trust an offer that is way out of the ordinary.
Check out several options
Don't fall in love at first sight. Whenever you are looking for a product in Australian shops and supermarkets, you should always have different options in hand. It often happens that we get anxious and then find out that what we bought was cheaper elsewhere. Look for alternatives in different places so that you always have the best offer on the table.
When you finish shopping, what you should check are the delivery times. If you are shopping online you can check how long it will take for the store to deliver what you have bought. It often happens that due to large volumes of purchases, deliveries are delayed and can take a while to show up on your doorstep.
