It’s nearly Black Friday and the deals are already underway. The savings seem to start earlier and earlier each year, and with Cyber Monday having gained just as much (if not more) popularity in the past years, what was once a 24-hour period of savings has become something far bigger. And now, with COVID-19 prompting most people to stay home and shop online, this gives you plenty of time to browse deals from the comfort of your couch or kitchen table.
For students, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are the perfect opportunities to double up on discounts. This article will show you how you can get the best Black Friday deals as a student, plus share a list of our top Black Friday discounts for 2020.
Getting the Best Deals on Black Friday
The fact that you’re a student doesn’t just stop counting once Black Friday and Cyber Monday rolls around. Does your favorite website offer educational discounts? Great! Now see if they’ll also let you claim that Black Friday special pricing. The goal here is to double down on those discounts.
We suggest finding the student discounts page on your favorite website first. Sometimes the Black Friday or Cyber Monday discounts are already right there, ready for students to claim. Other times, you might need to leverage that student cred or BF/CM promo code on checkout. Go through the motions and see what sticks. A little effort can go a long way for getting that absolute best deal.
Where can you find Black Friday Discount Codes?
Signing up for newsletters and promotional emails from your favorite store is a great way to get discount codes delivered right to your inbox. This way you’re the first to know when exclusive discounts are happening. Sure, you can find some online, and sites like Groupon, Coupons.com, and RetailMeNot have a lot available, especially during Black Friday, but there’s nothing more disappointing than trying to use a promo code you found secondhand only to realize the deal period has passed.
