Black Friday Household Offers

These are the HUGE discounts you can expect from Amazon and more on Black Friday 2017.

It's here! Black Friday has fast become an essential part of pre-Christmas shopping here in the UK. It really is a great way to get ahead of the game is by cashing in on those retail deals. 

The US tradition, where stores would drop their prices the day after Thanksgiving, is named after the 'black ink' used on balance sheets from the huge profits the retailers make on this day, rather than red ink used to identify a loss.

Here are the top five deals on household items this Black Friday 2017:

Handy hints 

1. Do your research. If you know the exact item you want ahead of the 24th, then have a look around online and compare prices in advance.

2. The early bird catches the best deal. Get up early. If you leave it until the afternoon on the 24th, you'll probably miss out!

3. Don't just focus on the Friday. Maybe also look ahead to Cyber Monday (27th November) to bag a bargain. 

How to avoid getting ripped off on Black Friday

With all the deals from big brands being thrust in our faces, it's easy to get swept away in the mayhem. Here's how to ensure that you don't get ripped off during the shopping season:

1. Make sure that what you're buying really is a bargain by taking a step back to think if the offer is genuinely exclusive to Black Friday, and not available at any other time of year. Often they are but you don't notice them because you're not in a present/bargain-buying frame of mind. 

2. Take a closer look at the product you're buying - is it the latest model? Sneaky retailers often use Black Friday as an excuse to get rid of old stock. 

3. Avoid scams by being wary when clicking on links sent in emails promising extra special deals. They are likely to take you to phishing websites and before you know it, they've got your bank details!

4. Purchases made on Black Friday and Cyber Monday have the same refund terms as any other day, so if the product isn't right, then get a refund.
