Black Friday is almost upon us. If you are unfamiliar with Black Friday, it is the name given to the shopping day after Thanksgiving in the US. And this shopping phenomenon has swept Ireland in the last few years with retailers and brands hosting major sales. This gives you the chance to pick up some bargains for yourself or as gifts for friends and family in the run-up to Christmas.
The dates to remember are Friday 29 November until Cyber Monday on 2 December.
So if you need to update your tired trainers or you want to treat yourself to some new workout wear, this is the perfect time to nab some bargains. It’s also a good opportunity to get the perfect Christmas present for that fitness fanatic in your life.
To help you get ready for this year’s sale, had a look at some of the best Black Friday health and fitness bargains you can expect to find this year.
Black Friday Tips
Firstly, get value for your money and buy what you actually need this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here are our top tips to help you get the best value:
- Prepare for what you are going to buy. While it may be tempting to dive right in and grab every bargain you see, preparing your list in advance will give you confidence in your purchase.
- Follow your favourite health and fitness brands on social media and sign-up to any newsletters. Some Black Friday deals go live before the day itself and often stock is limited so be the first to snap up the offer.
- Research the items you have your eye on prior to the sale, which will help to determine if you will get a genuine discount.
- Check the codes you will need for some sales and have them handy when the sales go live. Often stock is limited so the early (and organised) bird catches the worm!
- Keep an eye out for Black Friday pre-sales that may have launched already or early next week.
