These are our top predictions for where you should be shopping this Black Friday, including IKEA, David Jones and Coles.
Black Friday is right around the corner, so naturally, you should start planning where you'll be spending your hard-earned cash. Some retailers, such as eBay, have already started their deals, but it's hard to say which exact retailers are participating and with what kind of discounts. It's the perfect time to spoil yourself or get a head start on your Christmas gift shopping.
Black Friday is easily one of the most competitive sales days of the year. And at Finder, we're here to help get you through the madness. There are a few retailers that we're expecting to drop an amazing Black Friday sale. This is what you need to know to start planning and to make sure you survive the biggest shopping event of the year.
You should also head on over and check out our Black Friday hub. It has everything you need to know, including more predictions and a list of retailers that have started their sales early. Once 29 November rolls around, we'll also have a comprehensive list of all the Black Friday deals updated constantly.
Last year's deal: 50% off selected items
We've got a pretty good feeling that your favourite Swedish furniture store is going to participate in Black Friday this year. According to the website, IKEA's Black Friday deals will drop on the 28 November, so it's best to start planning now. There's a huge range of items, which is great, but it can also make it easy to feel overwhelmed. Start your wishlist now!
2. David Jones
Last year's deal: Up to 60% off already reduced fashion, shoes, accessories and homewares
Some of the David Jones sales have started early, but we haven't seen anything from the fashion category yet. We're expecting Australia's favourite department store to offer a similar discount to last year on all kinds of fashion brands, especially Australian fashion designers. If you're on the hunt for Nobody Denim, Bec + Bridge and Aje, David Jones is the place to shop.
Last year's deal: Up to 50% off your orders
The Good Guys carries a huge number of brands, spanning across heaps of different categories. Last year, the online retailer offered discounts on brands like Logitech, Acer, Microsoft, Smeg and more. We're expecting the same kind of thing this year – but just a lot bigger and better. If you're on the hunt for appliances, tech and other home goods, The Good Guys is the place to shop.
4. Cotton On
Last year's deal: 45-75% off select styles
If you're looking to re-do your summer wardrobe and grab some fun pieces, Cotton On is the shop to keep your eye on. The prices are already inexpensive, so a Black Friday sale means you are really getting bang for your buck. Last year, the retailer offered a massive sale of between 45% and 75% off. Cotton On carries brands like Typo, Cotton On Body and Rubi, so luckily you can still save at these places too.
Coles hasn't started its Black Friday deals, but a brand new catalogue is coming on Wednesday 27 November. What will it include? A lot more deals to shop during the Black Friday madness! Judging by how competitive the retail space is at the moment, we're expecting big things from Coles – especially seeing that they are one of Australia's biggest supermarkets. Want to shop now? Coles is currently offering 20% off all Christmas trees, cards and decorations.
