Tips & Tricks to Make Your Shopping Same Strong
1. Save the Dates
The US celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November, and this year it falls on the 26 November (US time). By this date, most online stores will have clothes, footwear, baby products, toys, personal care, and sports/outdoor equipment at a discount – as a precursor to Black Friday.
The real hustle – Black Friday is happening on the 26 November (US time), the day after Thanksgiving. Most, if not all, major online stores will launch its “One Day Deals” or “24-Hour Only Flash Sale” events on this day. Don’t miss out on your favorite stores and brands and shop during these limited-time offers to bag the bargains.
The sale doesn’t end just there. Cyber Monday will follow on 29 November 2020 US time, where electronic and home appliances are on discount or offer! Of course, Cyber Monday isn’t just all tech and gadgets – online stores carrying fashion and home goods tend to continue its sale offers to this day.
Some stores only offer either Black Friday OR Cyber Monday sales!

2. Prepare Your Shopping List, Make Your Black Friday Shopping Game Strong
Markup your wishlist, be your own Santa. Also, open a customer account at the online shop beforehand, so that when the time comes, everything will be a click away from checkout.
Pre-fill the relevant Buyandship warehouse address as your shipping address. When you checkout, you can be a step faster than everyone else, which means your shipment will be at our warehouse and then delivered to you sooner than others!
3. Identify Payment Methods and Prepare Multiple Payment Option
Some overseas online stores accept foreign credit/debit cards, while some only accept PayPal as a payment method. To avoid payment issues, prepare multiple payment options before the Black Friday period and make sure that your credit cards are not blocked from making overseas transactions.
At the same time, remember to prepare multiple valid credit cards in advance. It is recommended to use a credit card that has successfully made purchases on foreign websites, or you can apply for a higher purchase limit in advance if necessary. Don’t have a PayPal account?
