How To Get The Best Black Friday Deals

Black Friday is right around the corner, and it’s a great opportunity for new or expecting parents to get stocked up on essential baby products.

This year, Black Friday is running from the 17th to the 27th of November, and so many places are getting involved… so, how do you know you’re getting the best deals? 

Don’t worry, we're here to help with that stress. Here are our top four tips for making sure you get the deals you really want. 

Shop Around

If you’ve found a product you really want, don’t just go ahead and press buy straight away. 

Make sure you shop around first and look at other companies to see if you’re really getting the best deal. You never know; you might have found the best price at first, but it never hurts to double-check!

Research Beforehand

Black Friday can be a very overwhelming time, with deals left, right, and centre… how do you know what to choose?  This might seem like a no-brainer, but researching before the time and deciding what you really need and what you would like will help you when the time comes.  

Writing a list and having it on hand when doing your shopping will help you stick within your budget and not get distracted by a myriad of tempting things!

Don’t Fall For Misleading Price Drops

Most reputable places don’t do this - don’t get us wrong, but make sure not to fall into the trap of believing something is cheaper just because it’s Black Friday. 

Some places will raise the prices on their products before Black Friday, so it seems like you’re getting a better bargain than you are, but by following our other tips, you’re more likely to notice this happening and will avoid buying from the item you were looking at from there.

Look for Codes and Other Savings

Once you’ve written the list of products you want to buy, have a look at what shops sell these items and if they have any discount codes. Some places will offer a discount if you sign up to their website, so make sure you do this and have the codes handy to enter at checkout. 

Also, make sure you Google the company to see if they’re advertising any discounts or deals. Sometimes, this information is hard to find on the site itself, so a quick Google search will help direct you to the right place.

It’s also worth checking out TikTok and Instagram and searching for ambassadors or influencers who have discount codes specific to them, as these can often save you 10-30% at checkout.

So, there you go, our top tips for making sure you’ve got the best deals for Black Friday. Make sure to check out our other Black Friday articles to find out what products you might need if you’re a new or expecting parent!
