There may be a bit of debate over what Black Friday means in the UK – after all, how relevant is the day after Thanksgiving in a country that doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving? – but whether you embrace it or not, there’s no denying that Black Friday – and its close cousin, Cyber Monday – are fantastic opportunities to bag yourself some unmissable bargains.
The biggest Black Friday/Cyber Monday yet?
Before you get out your purse – or wallet – make a note in your diary: Black Friday this year is 29 November. Quickly followed two days later by Cyber Monday on 2 December.
And the indications are that year’s bonanzas will be bigger than ever, with shoppers taking the chance to stock up on Christmas gifts – phones, laptops, TVs, cameras, tablets, headphones etc – at rock-bottom prices.
Even better, many retailers do not restrict their offers to just these two ‘official’ sales days and we’re already seeing some great bargains appearing on retail websites.
Spread the cost of Christmas
The picture for shoppers with a DivideBuy account is even rosier.
DivideBuy shoppers can still browse for the best deals on the latest iPhone X, Nintendo Switch or OTTY mattress on our retail partners’ websites but, unlike other bargain hunters in the run-up to Christmas, you’ll also be able to spread the cost of your purchases over as much as a year – and it will be absolutely interest free.
The entire process couldn’t be quicker or easier. Everything is done digitally, so there is no paperwork involved. We’ll give you a decision straight away using your credit score and affordability, looking at your current financial circumstances and ability to pay today.
This means that you can immediately start grabbing some bargains from a wide variety of stores in the run-up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and you’ll be able to spread the cost of your purchases with monthly instalments to suit your budget, interest free.
One of the best ways to make the most of Black Friday and Cyber Monday is to plan your spending. Prioritise the biggest items on your shopping list, because these are likely to be the first ones to sell out. So if you’ve got your eye on a new phone, a camera for your partner or a huge TV, browse to these items first before someone else beats you to the best deals.
Big-ticket items like these are also ideal for buying through DivideBuy’s interest free credit option. Say you spend £1,200 on Black Friday and Cyber Monday bargains, using DivideBuy to spread the cost of your purchases over the next nine months means you’d pay just £133.33 each month. Or if that still seems a little steep for your budget, you can opt to pay over 12 months instead, meaning each monthly payment would be reduced to a more manageable £100.
Either way, DivideBuy’s innovative interest free credit means that you’re in control. There are no hidden fees and our simple lending terms are laid out in plain English and in the clearest format.
Even better, if you have any questions about your DivideBuy account, repayment schedule, or you simply have a little spare cash this month and want to make an early repayment, our customer service team are based here in the UK and can be contacted by phone, email or live chat. Our team are friendly, efficient and dedicated to supporting you.
With DivideBuy, you can make the most of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, without leaving yourself out of pocket over the festive period.
