Black Friday Survival Guide – Our Top Ten Tips

Black Friday Survival Guide – Our Top Ten Tips

It’s almost time! It’s only a few days until the biggest shopping day of the year. Here are Littlewoods’ top tips and hints to get you ready for a stress-free shopping experience.

1. Preparation is Key

Our first tip is to plan in advance. Get the kids to write Christmas lists and look out for deals on their wish list items. Save these items for later by ‘liking’ them on the site, using the heart icon, so you can find them easily when the sales start. Plan for the whole family!

2. Think Long Term

Have you needed to replace the kitchen kettle for three months? Now is the best time to replace all your kitchen appliances and electrical goods ahead of Christmas. If you have any other events or birthdays coming up as well, why not sort out presents now while the deals are on?


3. Get Following

Follow our social media accountsFacebook, Twitter, Pinterest – and sign up for our newsletters by adding your email address at the bottom of the home page to keep up to date with all the best deals!

4. Sign Up Early and Save Time

Create your online account well in advance of the sales to save yourself time. Black Friday is the biggest shopping date of the year, so sites get higher traffic than normal. Having your account details already stored can save you valuable time.

5. Do Your Research

Offers may look appealing on the day, but it’s no use grabbing a bargain if the product isn’t what you wanted. offers a huge selection of branded items – watch YouTube videos and read reviews to make sure you’re getting the perfect product for you or a loved one.

6. Start Early

Look out for deals and start shopping early. Get the best deals before anyone else and avoid your most-wanted products selling out. This takes us neatly on to our next point…


7. Have a Backup Plan

The top of the range headphones your son wanted for Christmas have sold out within five minutes – what are you going to do now? Are they available in different colours? Would he consider another brand? This is why our Number One Top Tip was ‘Preparation is Key’! Get the kids to choose a backup present so they’ll definitely not be disappointed. We have hundreds of products to choose from so we’re certain you can find another pair he’d be happy with!
