Black Friday is vastly approaching and yes, you need a game plan. According to recent research Black Friday has grown faster in South Africa than any other country in the world. Last year was the first time I took advantage of Black Friday Sales, and if you remember I also made a list on my grid last year to make it easy for planning. This year is no different and I have your back, unfortunately not your wallet. For the last two weeks I have been uploading all the Black Friday participating brands on

This way you have all the names of participating brands and it gives you time to check out what they have online and make a list of need and wants. Now let’s get back to the game plan that you need in place. Here are some tips on getting the deals on Black Friday:

1. Have a plan. I cannot stress this enough. It is very important to distinguish the need, want and can afford categories. There will be a lot of beautiful offers that can entice you, so have a clear plan – write it down and be accountable.

2. Choose a secure way to make payment- with all the scams that are running, and especially this time of the year, you need to be careful. Pay pal, Snapscan, all credit card payments that ask for a one time pin are credible.

3. Make sure that you also read up on the delivery costs and return policy’s- do your homework, before you make an impulsive decision that you might regret later.

4. This might be useful when purchasing from big corporations; make sure that there are no hidden costs involved.

5. Very important- sit down with your pamphlets and compare deals and lastly only buy from reputable retailers.
