3 Quick Tips To Save On Tech For Black Friday
Black Friday is fast approaching and with it the day of discounts. There are a lot of deals to grab from Black friday sales and suffice to say that it can get daunting to keep track of all offers. So here are a few ways to save a buck and get great deals on your Black Friday Purchase.
1. Price History Tools
You don’t want to pay more than you should, especially when prices can go up and down on a regular basis. But you also don’t want to miss out on a great deal because you think you will get it cheaper at another point in time.
You need to know as much price information about a product as possible to make an informed decision.
You can use price history tools to see the fluctuation in price of an online product.
CamelCamelCamel is a great for tracking the price of Amazon products.
It tracks the price of both new and used products, giving you an idea of what the best price for that product is.
All you need to do is enter the URL of an Amazon product when you go on the site. For some products the price history of an item can go back up to 5 years.
You can also download the browser plugin for Chrome, Firefox or Safari, to use whilst you are searching through Amazon.
When buying high value tech items, where there can be a lot of differentiation in price, it’s important to know what the general value of that product is. Tech products can come with a long list of tech specs, that can push up the price and make the deal seem too good not to buy.
2. Price Comparison Sites
There will be plenty of retailers selling the same tech products on Black Friday, it’s just a case of knowing where to find them.
That’s where price comparison sites come in.
If you’re only searching through Google to find the Black Friday tech deals you want, then you are missing out on thousands of retailers that could sell the same product, for cheaper!
Smaller retailers find it harder to show in Google as they are usually clouded by bigger competitors, but smaller companies have great deals to offer.
Sites like Pricerunner offer a straight comparison with over 3,000 retailers, however it is difficult to shop multiple tech products at once. Sites like Love the Sales offer a more visual shopping experience, they are a site very similar to Secretsales.
3. Price Match Promise
Price Matching is a retailer that matches the price of a product if you find it cheaper at another online store.
If you find a Black Friday Deal on a tech product cheaper somewhere else, it’s always worth asking the retailer if they can match the price.
You will need to find out which retailers are price matching for Black Friday. Try Googling ‘price match’ and scroll through a list of retailer’s pages that mention price matching.
You could also email the retailer to check if they are price matching over Black Friday, if you are not sure.
Retailers like Walmart that offer very competitive prices are known for their price match policies.
