So how can you shop like a pro on Black Friday? Here are our five tips to help you get the most out of Black Friday shopping.

Set a budget.

How much are you willing to spend? It’s so easy to get carried away. Figure out a set amount you want to spend and stick with it no matter what.

Make a list

This is pretty obvious, isn’t it? Making lists (either on your phone or on a paper) will ensure you have a visual reminder of what you really need so you don’t make (many) impulse purchases.

Do you need a new laptop? Or Christmas gift for your mum? Take your list with you to hold yourself accountable. The trick is you have to stuck to your list while there are tons of amazing deals in your face begging you to take advantage of.

Do your research online

Many retailers offer different discounts online which you won’t come across in store. Look for free shipping, bonus discounts and coupons. For example, you may get 10% off the order if you sign up to their newsletter. If you have any particular purchases in mind, it’s definitely worth to browse them online and compare the prices.

Get the receipt and read the return policy

Make sure you get the receipt for every purchase you make, even though it’s a Christmas gift and you might think you don’t need a receipt for that one. You may change your mind in couple of weeks and decide to get them a different gift.

Checking the returns policy is equally important. Some stores will offer extended return periods over the holiday season.
