Back Friday is merely hours away.

In order to make things easier for you, we thought we'd pull together four of our most helpful hacks to make sure that you have the best experience and get what you need from it. 

1. Don't feel pressurised to spend

If your budget is staring you in the face, telling you, you can't afford it, wait for another time when you're in a better financial position.

If you've managed to save and are chomping at the bit to grab all your favourites, then shop away.

2. Create a wishlist

This will help you avoid disappointment and confusion when the clock strikes 00:00. You still have a few hours left to do this.

3. Beware of any scams

Fraudsters know some shoppers may be desperate to get cheap deals, so shop from reputable sites.
