Black Friday is going to be a little different this year. To help prepare, we’ve put together some top tips on how to get a Black Friday Teachers Discount to help ease the stress and pressure of grabbing a last minute bargain.
Shopping is limited due to the current circumstances but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to grab a black friday deal when the day comes.
1. Shop Online
In the age of the internet a lot of the best deals can be found on the internet.
The majority of our deals and discount codes are online only so we’ll be right there with you. Online shopping is the best way to get a taste of the action without the droves of bargain hungry shoppers pushing, shoving and taking the last iPad.
Set your budget and know what you don’t want – it’s very easy to get distracted from your wish list. We’d recommend beating the rush from bed! Which brings us to number 2…
2. Write your wish list before Black Friday
With so many people shopping on Black Friday it makes sense to go in with a game plan. Make a shopping list of the items you really want. Make a note of the retailers that are selling them.
It’s also a good idea to come up with an alternate in case something you want is sold out. Bookmark our deals into your own Black Friday folder on your website browser so you can access them super quick on the day.

4. Best Things to Buy on Black Friday
It’s often said that the best things to buy on Black Friday is Electronics! Think iPhones, Televisions, Video Game Consoles – those larger items that make great Christmas presents.
It’s also a good time to upgrade your phone or laptop. Think big.
You can always pick smaller items up in the sales that typically follow Black Friday on the high street (with the extra bonus of our discount card if you’re education staff with a work email).
5. Plan around your working day
Plan around your day, we know you’ll be too busy in the day and in the morning, so if you’re extremely eager to grab a bargain and have the time, use your breaks, wait till you get home or be one of the first in the early hours as you get up.
7. Autofill your info and pre-register
Autofill basically fill in online forms automatically. This will really speed up your checkout registrations that ask you for your postal and payment information. Save bags of time on your bags of shopping!
