Black Friday Deals in Nigeria
Want to know the best part?
We have compiled the whole process down into a fairly short list that can not only be used on Black Friday, but really any holiday shopping event. Here are some of our most used tips and tricks that you can use this 2018, next year and every year that is to come.
Don’t even try to price match
A lot of stores suspend all price matching policies during Black Friday. This includes sites like Travelstart Nigeria, Jumia, Konga, SPAR, Shoprite etc. So, fight off the temptation of comparing with other store’s price.
Score early deals
A lot of retailers have learn’t that putting items on sale online makes more sales for them than usual. So, they put them on sale online before Black Friday. Plus, this can mean amazing deals that won’t be available later in the week.
Follow sites by signing up via their newsletter to grab amazing deals. This way, you will not miss out on any deals being offered.
Shop for other Event/holidays
I always make an interesting list of events coming up during the following year.
For example, if I know someone is planning a vacation next year, I look for appliances or light gifts they might want. I might even have picked up smaller toys to set back in our gift closet for kids parties for the following year.
Shop late and Early
One of the games retailers and online stores love to do is to keep shoppers in the store all day long. They sometimes offer late shopper deals to users who visit the site early. Watch out for ads that shows which ads will be discontinued later in the day. You might be able to bag yourself some or one, avoid the bad lucks/crowds, and still get an amazing deal(s).
Stick to your budget (and avoid overspending)
You will need to know your budget before you even make a list. Once this is set, you can move on to the next step; getting your cash! Do not be tempted to spend beyond your budget limit.
It is natural to experience feelings that make you want to buy more. It is called impulse feelings; avoid overspending!
Understand that everything is really not a deal
Not every deal you get on Black Friday is really a sweet deal. There are some retailers who do not have to offer their lowest prices until close to December 25. That may mean that an item you get 30% regularly might be 60% off during the end of the year.
