November 24, 2023 - 4 min read

We’ve never been so happy to see you, Black Friday! (After all, making our dollars stretch further is the main game in 2023.) And with stonking great savings up for grabs on everything from the latest lust-have fridges and OLED TVs to future-proof computers and laptops, it pays more than ever to have a Black Friday battle plan up your sleeve!

The Black Friday sales are a brilliant chance to think big and bargain hunt for the entire year ahead. Tick off your wish list (and gift list), get that back-to-school tech sorted, upgrade tired household appliances, and scale up your lifestyle with super-handy budget buys.   

To help you pinpoint those perfect purchases, we’ve got your ultimate Black Friday Fit checklist. 

When Is Black Friday 2023?

Black Friday is a blockbuster shopping day when stores offer epic deals on items big and small, both in-store and online. The Black Friday sales this year in Australia fall on Friday 24 November.

Get Christmas In The Sack Early

Plan your Black Friday assault right and you can beat Santa at his own game and avoid the stress of huge Christmas crowds, and the horrid panic over whether that ‘make or break’ present will arrive before December 24! Our advice? Start writing that list and checking it twice now!  

Mark Your Milestones

Make a mental inventory of all the family milestones in your calendar for the coming year – whether it’s a special anniversary, big birthday, graduation or first-time school starter – and think about the best gifts or gadgets to hit the spot. Would Dad love a marked-down massage gun for his dodgy back next Father’s Day? Has Mum been dropping hints about getting a fitness tracker to supercharge her exercise goals?
