Most online stores prefer you to create online accounts with them. If you want to save time when shopping for those bargains on Black Friday, sign up to the stores you wish to buy with now. LastPass is a great way to create and store all your passwords. LastPass also makes it super easy to log in to each of the accounts you’ve created as it saves all the necessary details for you.

Tip 2 – Write Yourself A List

You’ve most likely got some items you’ve wished for, that would be an excellent addition to your crafting experience. Black Friday deals and sales may mean that a new sewing machine or craft supplies are affordable. Put together a list of ‘must haves,’ ‘wishes’ and gifts for family and friends that would mean giving at Christmas is entirely sorted.

Tip 3- Search Online For Those ‘Got To Haves’

The beauty of online shopping is that it can be done from anywhere you’ve got internet access! Sitting comfortably in the comfort of your home with your computer is much more preferable compared to the other option. Making a mad dash to a store and waiting in line with other enthusiastic shoppers You’ve also got your phone.  So when you have some time, researching deals and shopping online is as simple as a few clicks.

Tip 4 – Stick To Your Budget

Let’s face it; we can get caught up in the sheer delight of finding bargains. Overspending could happen very quickly! Set yourself a budget of how much you can spend before you get carried away.

Tip 5 – Shop Online Securely

It is important to shop smart when doing so online. When arriving at any online checkout page, be sure that it is secure. You will know that the page is protected because it will have “https” in the address and there will be a little green padlock icon on the left-hand side of the address bar.

Tip 7 – Be Aware of Return Policies

Make sure you read the fine print of what a sale item’s return policy is. Perhaps it is a short window for return or exchange only.

Tip 8 – Hunt for Bargains

Sign up for the retailers’ e-newsletters so that any awesome deals are delivered to your inbox.

See what your Credit Card Provider reward store has on offer. Then pay for your Black Friday shopping your credit card and top up your rewards.
