With Black Friday deals and the opportunity to make savings on everything from homeware to appliances, getting closer by the day, it's time to start thinking about how to make the most of the biggest deals of the year.
Follow these quick and easy tips from Mark Kelly, marketing manager at Appliances Direct, if you want to be ready to make the most of Black Friday 2018.
1. Sign up in advance
A lot of places give early access to customers emailing them before the event is live, so you can get first pick of the bargains.
2. Spend some time doing research
Bargains are different for everyone, so don't be afraid to hunt around for your bargains. They might be hidden a few pages in. The deal you really want may not be what you see straight away on the landing page.
3. Explore lesser known brands
Have a look around websites and retailers that are lesser known than the main competitors. You may well find a genuine bargain if you are prepared to look beyond the big names. This is especially relevant for kitchen appliances.
