If you are looking for jackets for the winter months, now is a great time to shop for them. There are plenty in the shops and you can easily take advantage of the Black Friday discounts to buy what would otherwise be expensive items.
This is great news for those of you who are living on a tight budget. Here are a few tips and tricks you can use to make sure that you do not miss out.
Do a little research
It is worth going online and seeing what is available as soon as you read this article. When you take this approach, on the sales days you can go straight to the relevant product and buy it.
Make a note of the item code and price then save the URL. That way you can cut and paste it into your browser and get taken straight to that coat. The best bargains go super fast, so you need to get to your chosen jacket and buy it before someone else does.
Make a note of the price and URL
Before, you click the buy button, just double-check the price. You want to be 100% sure you are not being duped. Most retailers are very good, but there are a few out there that play a game of cat and mouse with the price. They tell you it is in the sale and that you are getting a huge discount, when; in fact, the price has not changed by much. If you have a note of the normal price now you can spot this con and simply click away and shop elsewhere.
Work out what you need before you start looking
Think about when and where you are going to want to wear your jacket. You want to make sure that it is going to be suitable for you. A person who is going to be spending a lot of time outdoors will likely need a hood and elasticised cuffs. But, someone who is only going to be wearing their coat for the short walk to work may not need those features.
Knowing what you are looking for before you go online to see what is available can save you a lot of money. It greatly reduces the chances of your buying something that is not suitable simply because it caught your eye. You do not want to end up having to buy another coat when you discover that the one you bought in the sales is not waterproof.
Stay up or get up early
The best Black Friday bargains are to be had, right at the start of the sales. So, staying up late or getting up early can greatly improve your chances of grabbing yourself the jacket or coat that you really want.
Don’t forget Cyber Monday
If you are unlucky and do not find anything you like in your size, just try the Cyber Monday sales. They are no longer the poor partner of Black Friday. So, you can still pick up a low-cost jacket or coat.
Should that fail, give it a week or so and go on eBay to see what is available. Sometimes people who have made rash buying decisions during the sales sell on what they have bought. So, you may be able to pick up something that way.
