The frenzy of Black Friday deals has already started. It’s easy to get caught up in the noise, so here are a few tips from team Wrisk on deals to look out for and getting ready for Christmas.

Oh, and once you’ve shopped, make sure you have those expensive valuables insured under your contents insurance. If you don’t have insurance, you can get your valuables insured in minutes with Wrisk.

Lists are your friend.

Whether you are looking to buy something you’ve had your eye on for a while, getting ready for Christmas or stocking up a few birthday presents, the best way to keep focused is to make a list (or lists) to keep focused and avoid ending up with stuff you just don’t need.

Research is key.

Many retailers have started their Black Friday deals already, with more discounts set to launch on Friday itself. Use your handy list from above to find the best deals online first.

Price trackers.

It's hard to know if you will get a good deal or not. We found a couple of tools to help you track prices and to save you from getting lost in the chaos.

  • Keepa - is an Amazon price tracker as is CamelCamelCamel 
  • Price Spy allows you to track prices across a number of retailers and products
  • Retailer apps - many of the retailers' own apps will provide price alerts for when product prices fall. 

So what to do when you’ve bought all your goodies?

Whilst you relax with your cuppa and feel good about wrapping up your Christmas shopping early or finding that amazing deal, don’t forget to add any expensive items to your contents insurance. 

The time between now and Christmas is prime for burglary, as it’s seen as an opportunity to strike as we all stock up on gifts.

Wrisk offer flexible insurance for your stuff allowing you to add/remove things from your cover anytime - so you can enjoy the festivities knowing we've got your back.
