Black Friday will be on the 26th of November, internationally, but black Friday in Egypt usually starts from the beginning of November.
You are probably wondering how to start preparing for it. In this article, we got your back! We will let you know which products you shouldn’t be buying before Black Friday, how to set a budget, how to get the best out of the offers.
1) What should I not buy before Black Friday in Egypt?
- Valuable accessories such as Gold, Diamonds, and Watches.
- Gift Cards
- Hair products
- Gym Memberships
- Sound Systems
2) Start saving money
A few things that we recommend to you:
- Track your spendings
- Make a budget
- CONTROL YOUR IMPULSES
- Plan your meals
3) Differentiate your needs and wants by using the 30-day rule
If you find something you like, wait 30 days before purchasing it. If you do want to buy the item after 30 days, go ahead and order it. If you forget about it or realize you don’t’ need it, you’ll’ wind up saving money.
4) Use the 50, 30, 20 budgeting rule and stick to it
By allocating your monthly income into 3 main categories, 50% to your needs, 30% to your wants, 20% savings
5) It’s a week, or even a month, not a day
Most stores start their Black Friday sales a week before it. We suggest that you keep watching social media accounts and know sneak peeks that some people might not know.
6) Make a list of your best-loved stores
Create a wishlist, know which products that you want to buy from each store. It will help you not get distracted by the many offers and will help you get the items that you want before they get sold out. It will also help with your budget.
7) Start putting stuff in your shopping cart
We always use a smart trick to start adding what we want before Black Friday and hope that they get a discount.
8) Know the prices of the items that you want to buy
Unfortunately, some businesses and websites add “fake” deals and offer their products by making the original price higher. So you should keep an eye on this.
9) Keep your shipping details ready
Your shipping details are your shipping address in detail. This includes street, floor, flat number, phone number, and another spare number, your credit card details. To save time, put them in a note if you are planning to buy through social media. Add your shipping address and credit card details on the retail websites.
We wish you all a happy shopping on Black Friday. Just shop smart and know which stuff can benefit you! Let us know what you are planning to buy on Black Friday.
