Is it time for a new shaver? Then Black Friday can be the best time to buy one. But even on Black Friday, it is advisable to stay on top of prices-  not every discount is as good as it seems. Use the following tips for the best and most economical buy for a good quality shaver.

1.     Don’t be fooled

To make the prices on Black Friday seem extra cheap, suppliers sometimes play tricks. It may happen that a product is offered at a higher price than usual just before this period. During Black Friday you are presented with a nice discount, while this is actually no discount on the normal price. Then you think you are getting a good deal on the purchase of a certain shaver, while that is actually not the case. 

Also, sometimes a higher original price is quoted to make a discount seem higher. In order not to be misled, it is advisable to keep an eye on prices in the period before Black Friday. This way you will have a better idea of what ends up being really good Black Friday deals, and which deals are actually not that great.

2.     Be there on time

Don’t start looking for discounts on shavers until Black Friday itself. Chances are you’ve already missed out on the best deals. This is because many (online) stores already come up with their discounts before Black Friday. 

In practice, Black Friday usually lasts longer than one day. Do you have your eye on a particular store for the purchase of a new shaver? Be sure to check when the discount period starts to avoid missing out! It is even more useful to find out, in the period before the discounts start, what your wishes and requirements are for your new shaver. Once you have that clear, it becomes a lot easier to find the best deals that fit your wish list.

3.     Shop with confidence online

Of course you can go to the mall on Black Friday and check out all the deals. Just keep in mind that it will be very crowded. Not in the mood for crowds? Then you are better off shopping online. There are plenty of deals to be found online and you can compare them easily. Keep a close eye on the websites of Coolblue, MediaMarkt and BCC if you are looking for cheap electronics. Often the deals on these websites are already available the week before Black Friday. 

An added perk is also this: these websites have easily accessible customer services and already many positive customer experiences. Have you found an offer on an unfamiliar website? Then always check via Google whether it is a reliable website and how many positive reviews go with it. This way you reduce the chance of a bad experience. 

Keep in mind, too, that on Black Friday, if an offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you take the above things into account, chances are you will find a shaver for the best price on Black Friday!
