5 Tips for Surviving Black Friday
The most chaotic shopping day of the year is almost upon us, and the crowds are expected to be immense – but then, so are the deals. If you’re planning to brave the crowds and join the hundreds of thousands of holiday bargain hunters this year, you need to be prepared – so we’ve put together five helpful tips for surviving Black Friday.
1. Pre-book your Addison Lee
The last thing you want to be worried about on Black Friday is finding somewhere to park while other shoppers race ahead to snag the best deals! Pre-book your Addison Lee and we’ll take care of all that – simply jump in and we’ll drop you wherever you need to be, ready to join the race at the front.
2. Pick a shopping pal who can keep up
Black Friday can be a battle, and in as in any battle, you need strong allies. Make sure you go with a friend who’s ready to match your pace. A fellow power-shopper will never let you down!
3. Be organised
Shopping strategies are important when you’re battling big crowds, so don’t just run into the mall like a headless chicken as soon as the doors open. Make sure you have a plan in your mind of what you want, and where you need to go to get it.
4. Wear comfortable shoes
It’s likely you’re going to be on your feet for hours at a time, pounding the pavements in search of the best deals; therefore it’s a good idea to make sure you’re wearing shoes that won’t give you blisters in the first five minutes.
5. Stay calm!
Black Friday can be a stressful day with all the queues, crowds and the competitive edge. Do your best to stay hydrated, take breaks when you need to, and remember it’s not the end of the world if you don’t snag every last bargain you see! After all, your pre-booked Addison Lee will be waiting for you at the end, so you can relax and recharge in total comfort on the way home.
