In the past, we’ve waited until FRIDAY to post a bunch of Black Friday Deals. This year, Black Friday sales have started early (this year is Black November!) and, honestly, trying to corral all the deal is next to impossible.
So… here’s our advice for getting in on the best Black Friday Deals.
Sign up for email newsletters
Go to your favorite sites (pen related or not) and sign up for their email newsletter today. Many online shops are offering rolling sales starting yesterday. So to get all the details and when exactly the best deals will happen, sign up for newsletters.
You don’t have to stay subscribed forever but if you want to get the specifics for each shop, this is the best way to do it.
If you’re already subscribed, build a filter so all newsletter funnel into one folder. Depending on your email app, the method to do this will vary but it’s 30 minutes or less to set this up and is a great way to get all the shop newsletters in one place and out of your inbox.
Follow your favorites on social media
Despite my protestations in Link Love last week, if you do utilize social media, be sure you’re following your favorite shops. Often, they will post about sales, discounts and other deals.
Forward deals to F&F
If you are looking to help a friend or family member know what to get you for the holidays, forward a newsletter and/or your wishlist.
Tell them you read The Well-Appointed Desk
Finally, it helps us if you tell shops you heard about them or read about a product here on The Well-Appointed Desk. Just add it to the comments with your order, if there is that option. Thanks!
