Beat the rush!

Want to bag yourself the best deal? Get ahead of the crowds by planning your bargain hunting around the busiest online shopping times identified on the graph below.

Handy excuses to shop

You’re ready and primed to grab a bargain. Unfortunately, none of your loved ones – nor your boss – understand the importance of nabbing a half-price dishwasher. Here are some handy excuses to keep them at bay as you shop:

Tell your boss: “I’m just doing some research on consumer behaviour.”

Tell your partner: “I won’t shop for the rest of the year, I swear!”

Tell your parents: “Look how much money we’ve just saved!”

Tell yourself: “Just one more item and then I’ll stop…”

Food and hydration tips

Black Friday shopping can feel like a marathon, so make sure you approach it like a true athlete. Refuel with plenty of food and drink throughout the day to help you stay energised, focused and alert.

Mindfulness expert, John Lingley, recommends taking regular breaks from all that shopping and tucking into a couple of treats. Enjoying a few of your favourite snacks can also help keep your stress levels at bay.

The ultimate Black Friday playlist

Listening to calming music while you hunt for deals can really work wonders on your stress levels. Just add the following music to your playlist, and enjoy a less frazzled shopping experience.

Queuing tips

Even through the sales chaos, don’t let anyone fault your queuing etiquette. Here's how to remain calm amid any terrible queuing behaviour by other shoppers.

  • Escape into headphones: Listen to some calming music, an engaging podcast or riveting audiobook.
  • Get some exercise: Do stretches or squats and use your sale goodies to work out your arms.
  • Spark your imagination: Invent quirky backstories for your fellow shoppers to stay entertained.
Stress-busting tips

Want to stay zen while you battle the crowds? Try these stress-busting tips from mindfulness expert, John Lingley:

  1. Focus on your breathing: When you start to feel stressed, bring awareness to your breath and focus on the rising and failing of your chest. This should help restore feelings of calm.

  2. Accept the present moment: Stuck in a long queue? Instead of thinking, “Why don’t they have more people serving”, repeat the mantra “It is what it is!”

"4K" denotes the nearly 4,000 pixels – or dots – that make up the horizontal plane on the TV display, an innovation that leads to a clearer, crisper image. With the biggest names in film and video games releasing new and exciting 4k-ready content, there's no reason to wait until 2020.

The PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One X are specifically designed with 4K viewing in mind while the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime are bumping their shows from HD (1080p) to Ultra-HD (4K). Classic films are being remastered and shipped on UHD Blu-Ray discs and new movies are now being displayed at the sort of resolution once reserved only for the cinema.

In short, there's more than enough 4K goodness to make your new 4k TV your viewing mode of choice for the next few years.
