Black Friday 2020 Must-Read Shopping Tips
1. Save the Dates for Thanksgiving / Black Friday / Cyber Monday
．Thanksgiving- US time November 26, 2020 （Thursday）
Thanksgiving is celebrated in US on the fourth Thursday in November, and this year it falls onto November 26. Most of the online stores selling fashion, shoes, baby products, toys, personal care, sports or outdoor products, electronic products, etc., will provide discount offers and give the kickstart to the big Black Friday Sales! You can buy the items in this pre-sale period if you are afraid of missing the limited quota on Black Friday.
．Black Friday – US time November 27, 2020（Friday）
This year November 27, US time, will be the most important day of the year for all shopping fans! You basically can get half price or even 70% off on most items! What’s more, most of the major online stores will launch a “One Day Deal” or “24 Hours Flash Sale” and other limited-time offers on that day. You will have the chance to shop online as low as 90% off! You definitely don’t want to miss it out.
．Cyber Monday – US time November 30, 2020 （Monday）
November 30 (US time) is a discount day that usually focuses on electronic products such as computers, mobile phones, digital cameras, audio, and gaming equipments. But of course, there will also be discounts and sales for other categories such as fashion, home goods and more! If you regret not buying enough on Black Friday, Cyber Monday gives you another chance. But keep in mind, some stores only offer Black Friday OR Cyber Monday Sales!
2. Pay attention to the sale time
The West Coast and East Coast of the United States have a time difference of three hours, and most of the online stores will start the discount according to the time of the West Coast. This year, Black Friday will start at 00:00 on November 27, US time, which is 4 pm on November 27, Hong Kong time. (But of course, discounts might also start early!) Some online stores in the UK, Japan, Australia, Italy and Canada will start their Black Friday offers on November 27, local time.
3. Prepare a shopping list and create an online shop account
If you want to be well prepared, we advise you to create a customer account at the online shops first and make a wishlist, so everything will be in your shopping cart. When the discount begins, just a click and then you can easily check out all the items! And if you want to save even more time, you can fill in our warehouse address when creating your online store accounts!

4. Understand the payment method and prepare multiple valid credit cards
Some overseas online stores do not accept overseas credit cards, and only accept Paypal as a payment method. In order to avoid being stuck during the payment process, you can apply for a Paypal Account in advance. At the same time, remember to prepare multiple valid credit cards as well.
5. Different prices on different websites
Keep your eyes open, as prices may vary on different websites! If you are looking for sneakers, don’t just check the official websites, but also other online shoe shops! Sometimes the popular shoe stores such as Stock X, Eastbay, and Footlocker offer higher discounts than the official websites.
6. Select Buyandship as your transshipment company
Most of the US websites do not provide shipping services to Hong Kong, such as Walmart . Therefore, Buyandship is here to help you! Sign up in advance, send all your purchases to our overseas warehouse addresses and we will deliver them to Hong Kong for you!
