Black Friday deals: don’t get caught out
Black Friday can be the perfect time to do some Christmas shopping, or treat yourself to that coffee machine or TV you’ve had your eye on. But you need to be savvy to snap up the best deals.
We know from years of extensive research that many of the special offers are not all they’re cracked up to be. We’ve spotted products at some shops on ‘special offer’ almost all year round, and seen out of date RRPs being used to make the discount seem bigger than it really is. A quick check on the manufacturer’s website should give you the up-to-date RRP.
Checking the price across several different shops should also help give you a sense of whether you’re really getting a good deal.
