Black Friday shopping tips and recommendations

By Sugar Lane - Thursday, November 04, 2021

Buenos días y bienvenidas a mi especial Black Friday! Como ya os conté el año pasado, para mí esta fecha no consiste en volverse loca con las compras y derrochar a lo loco pero, dado que muchas empresas hacen descuentos especiales, es un buen momento para comprar esas cosas que teníamos en la lista hace tiempo o adelantar los regalos navideños.

Good morning and welcome to my Black Friday special! As I told you last year, to me, this date is not about going shopping and spending like crazy, but, since a lot of stores have special discounts, it is a good time to get some items we had on our wishlist, or get gifts for the upcoming Holidays.


El año que acabábamos de mudarnos a Washington decidimos ir a un centro comercial a comprar algunas cosas que necesitábamos, y es una experiencia que nunca más he querido repetir, así que desde entonces siempre hago mis compras de Black Friday online. 

The year when we first moved to DC we went to a mall on Black Friday to buy some things we needed, and it was an experience I never felt like repeating, so since then, I always go online for my Black Friday shopping.

Mi primera recomendación es que vayáis planificando estas compras meses antes, sobre todo si son de caprichitos caros. Es mejor anotarlo en una lista, y si cuando llegue Noviembre es algo que sigues queriendo comprar, pasa al siguiente punto.

My first tip is to start planning months in advance, specially if you are going to invest in something expensive. Write it on a list, and if you still want it by November, go to my next tip.


Lo segundo que debéis hacer es mirar y anotar los precios de esos productos a principios de Noviembre. Hay muchas empresas que hacen un "falso Black Friday" inflando los precios unos días antes y aplícándoles el descuento ese viernes, que en algunos casos deja el producto al precio original, con lo que no hay un descuento real, y en otros, tristemente, aún con el descuento sale más caro que la semana anterior.

My second tip is to check prices and write them down or take a screenshot a month in advance. A lot of stores host a "fake Black Friday", increasing prices some days earlier, and offering a discount on Friday, which gives you the regular price, and in some cases, sadly, even with the discount it is more expeensive than the previous week.

Si llegado el momento, veis que merece la pena el descuento, adelante! 

If the date arrives and it is still worth it, go ahead!


Puede que ya tengáis vuestra lista de la compra hecha, pero qué hay de tus seres queridos? Acordaos que las Navidades están a la vuelta de la esquina, por lo que el Black Friday es un buen momento para adelantar las compras de los regalos. Vé pensando qué quieres regalar estas navidades, apunta precios, y aprovecha los descuentos.

You might have your wishlist ready, but what about your loved ones? Remember thee Holidays are around the corner, so Black Friday is the perfect time to buy somee gifts. Think what would you like to get for your family and friends, write down the prices, and make the most of Black Friday discounts!

Yo os recomiendo que las compras que hagáis sean cosas de calidad y atemporales, que no piquéis en mil tonterías que veáis, sino que os centréis en productos buenos, que son algo caros y en los que ese porcentaje de descuento sí se va a notar. Os dejo una selección con algunos de mis favoritos:

And finally, I advise you to get quality pieces that will not go out of fashion. Do not get distracted with endless sparkly silly purchases, focus on good products, which aree usually expensive, so the discount percentage will make a difference. Here is a selection with some of my favorites:

Joyas de calidad a buen precio:


 Espero que este post os sea útil y que hagáis buenas compras! A qué le tenéis echado el ojo?

I hope you found this post useful and you make great purchases! What is on your wishlist?

  1. These are good tips! While we don't really have black Friday here in Australia you can get some good deals on overseas sites! I often use the sales to get Christmas presents but I'm pretty organised this year so don't have much more to get!

    Hope that your week is going well and you have a nice weekend ahead of you :)
