Black Friday shopping tips for finding the best deals

Everybody knows that there are great tech deals afoot on Black Friday, but how can you really find the best one? Here is our list of Black Friday tips to get extra fresh deals this shopping season.

At Back Market, we've made it our mission to offer Black Friday deals every day of the year, so don't worry if you miss this shopping holiday, you can check back any time in the year and find the discounts you crave.

Black Friday Tip #1: Be flexible

Maybe you really want a Black Friday iPhone deal but don’t quite want to pay the price of $799 or more for Apple's newest iPhone. It’s unlikely that Apple will offer any discounts on the model that was just released, so if you want to get a good deal on a cell phone, we suggest looking elsewhere. The used and refurbished market may give you deals that you didn’t even think were possible, but you’ll have to consider buying an iPhone from a year or two ago if you want a chance at some serious savings. And even if it isn't Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you'll be able to find a better deal year-round on the refurbished market.

Black Friday Tip #2: Don’t give up

Maybe you just found out that the Black Friday tech deal you were eyeing is no longer valid. Maybe the product is sold out, or maybe you didn’t notice the little print below the price that specifies there are other prerequisites to receiving that special discount. Either way, don’t get frustrated over one lost deal. There are many other products and offers that can take its place, and there’s a good chance that you’ll find one that’s even better.

And if you're open to buying refurbished, chances are that you'll be able to find a ton of other deals that can replace that special one that you were thinking about, and they'll be around all year if you're shopping on Back Market.

Black Friday Tip #3: Don’t stay focused on one product

If you want the best deal on wireless headphones, for example, don’t just look at Black Friday deals on AirPods. You may be a lifelong Apple fan, but what if I told you that brands like Sennheiser, Sony, and Bose offer products that are just as good—if not better—than what Apple has to offer, except you may not be familiar with them. Black Friday is the perfect time of year to give other brands a chance.

One last thing before you go

Even though this list of Black Friday tips may not be very expansive, we hope you’re able to find a deal this Black Friday that makes you feel like you really lucked out. And if you're not quite ready to buy, or want to see bigger discounts on a product you really want, keep checking back on the refurbished market--you'll see deals year-round. If you keep these three tips in mind, we’re sure you’ll be able to find a really extraordinary bargain. Good luck!
