Black Friday is one of the most anticipated days for buyers online and not-to have Christmas pre-purchases. That can later be used to keep some Christmas gifts. Although it is an appointment with the purest consumerism, many expect it because the discounts are high. Some reach up to 70% in all types of products (from washing machines to video games) that, perhaps, should be bought anyway.
Every year there are more stores that add to this day. That gives the kick-off to Christmas shopping. Taking into account this scenario, we suggest some tips to buy well on Black Friday, also on the internet. Last Black Friday there was a growth of 62% compared to the previous period, according to data provided by Paypal. This day has become an event for lovers of online shopping.
- Planning. It is best to go shopping with the “shopping list” made, so we will avoid spending money on what we do not need.
- Economy. We can decide how much we want to spend and then do everything possible to resist impulse purchases.
- Beware of online offers. It seems obvious but behind a great offer. There can be a great deception.
- Along with the discounted price always have to be either the original price or the percentage of the rebate (or both).
- In shopping online you have 14 days to repent and return the product without giving explanations: they will have to return everything you paid. If you are going to pay online, the best thing is a prepaid card, a credit card or Paypal. Avoid making bank transfers if you do not fully trust the seller.
- Returns. During Black Friday, the products are not exempt from the right of return. A period of 14 days is applied to the right of withdrawal, and this day is not an exception. Of course, they are only obliged to return the money if what you buy has a manufacturing defect.
- Claims . In case of claim, the seller cannot force accept a voucher as a way of refund.
- Online offers. Stay tuned to Facebook pages and Twitter entries. Many small stores put special alerts about Black Friday incentives and discounts to buyers who follow them or “like” them
- The cheapest is not always the best. The lowest price offers are not always the best. Days like Black Friday are for company’s moments to get rid of the stock of items they have in store and want to sell before the Christmas campaign.
