The Good Guys’ annual Black Friday sale is almost here and for shoppers, it’s your grand final. Australia has been in online shopping training for this for some time now, waiting for the right moment to strike on some big ticket items – both in-store and online.

With amazing deals on big brands and items, the time to do your research, set your budget, sort your finances and get ready for the biggest shopping event of the year is now!

Here, find our insider tips and tricks to ensure you get what you want, what you need and what you truly deserve on Black Friday.

When Is Black Friday?

Originating in the US and taking place on the Friday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year as stores offer enormous sales on items big and small. In 2023, Black Friday falls on 24 November in Australia.

Do Your Research

This is the most important part of your Black Friday prep. Head to your local The Good Guys store or jump online before the big day, so you can view our range and even chat to our experts in person, who can help you decide which brand and model will best suit you. That means when the big day arrives, you won’t be wasting valuable seconds trying to make a decision on which product is right for you.

So whether you’re after a new coffee machine (we love a morning brew), new TV (did someone say big screen and crystal clear picture?), new vacuum cleaner (the latest models make cleaning so much easier) or the latest laptop (work from home life got us like… upgrade!) or something else, we’ve got you covered.

Read Up On Buying Guides

Click on the type of product you’re dreaming of and these comprehensive guides can resolve what product, type or model is for you:

“Create a shopping list so you can strike when the moment arrives. This will give you a major advantage over other shoppers also looking to grab a bargain.”

Set Your Budget

Having a clear budget will ensure you’re in control of your spending and let you target the models that suit you.

Ask yourself three things: What are my main Black Friday goals? What are my priorities? What’s my spending limit?

Once you have the answers to these questions, do your research to find out prices and list the figure you’re willing to spend next to each item. Then tally up the dollar amount.

A good little trick is to overbudget for each item, so you don’t get caught out on the day. You might even find you have some cash left over to purchase something else or transfer it to your savings. Winning!

And if you do get swept up in the energy of the day, don’t waste your time feeling guilty – a bargain is a bargain.
