What type of shopper are you?
The Veteran: They've been working on their wishlists for months and have probably already scoured the internet and social media for where to shop for everything on their lists, noting down normal pricing, current discounts, and any early announcements for Black Friday 2021. They've already created notes on what to buy from where, which will likely change based on any crazy specials they spot.
The Hunter: While most of them already have a basic wishlist, they usually prefer to click through every page on a website to find those hidden exclusive deals that most people miss out on.
The Snipers: They'll never buy anything before Black Friday 2021 itself. They believe the best deals will only be available over that specific weekend. Fully committed, no one can change their mind. While many of these shoppers are changing their tactics given that promotions are starting earlier than before with limited stock availability, there are still a few who don't mind missing out on that Xbox or iPhone if it goes out of stock.
The Gambler or Rookie: They either haven't committed to what they want, or they don't care about sales, or it's their first Black Friday 2021 spree and they haven't done their research. They panic shop all night and day, adding anything and everything to their cart until they decide they're ready to checkout. The problem is they usually don't bag the big discounts and end up disappointed because the product either gets sold out while in their cart, or they accidentally remove the wrong item when comparing at checkout.
No plan is wrong, but if you are going to spend your hard-earned cheddar this Black Friday 2021, you need get real value for it. We recommend sticking to strategy 1, 2 to 3, or a combination of them.
