SHOPPERS are gearing up to bag the best Black Friday deals tomorrow.

And if the fate of your Christmas shopping lies on making the most of slashed prices online, you need to plan ahead. These tips will help give you a head start . . .

SET AN ALARM: Many online retailers will start Black Friday sales at midnight so set an alarm for 23.45pm. Then you can get ready to start shopping.
Other stores may have started deals with a “Black Friday warm-up” all this week — but bigger discounts are still likely to drop at this time.
PREP A WISH LIST: Some sites will save your shopping basket, so fill this with everything you want beforehand to up your chances of nabbing the goods you’re after before they sell out.
If the retailer doesn’t save baskets, you could also add the things you want to your wish list — so you’re all set for adding to your basket tomorrow.
BOOKMARK YOUR FAVOURITES: Have the websites of the retailers you want to hit saved in your bookmarks on your web browser.
Every second counts when it comes to snaffling those savings before they sell out.
GET ’APPY: If you’re on the go this Black Friday, make sure your phone or tablet has your favourite store’s apps ready. This will make it easier for you to see what’s on offer, you’ll also be notified when deals start — so you can take advantage of them straight away. As an added bonus, many retailers offer additional promos such as free delivery for first-time app downloads so you can bag an even better deal.
CHECK RETURN POLICIES: If you’re buying potential Christmas gifts in the sales, it’s worth knowing what the retailer’s return policy is, before clicking “buy”.
Things that are final sale can’t be swapped or returned, should you get a size or colour wrong. The same goes for items you buy for yourself that may need trying on for size.
