How to get the best Black Friday deals

  • Make a shopping list in advance. It sounds silly, but you can get distracted by all of the “am-azing deals” and end up not finding what it was you really wanted in the first place.
  • Take your time and shop slowly.
  • Cross check prices across multiple websites. Do your homework, check those prices at more than one location.
  • Keep checking back with Yachting World as we regularly update our guides to the best deals.
  • Download a price comparison app on your phone, such as Price Runner or Price Spy, these take some of the guess work out of the bargain hunt.
  • Remember: There’s always another day to find a good deal. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, then with a little patience, you will probably find the deal later on.

Keep checking back with Yachting World over the coming days, as we’ll be scouring the web for the best discounts and deals in the run up to Black Friday.
