Black Friday Survival Guide


Black Friday Survival Guide

Black Friday doesn’t have to be intimidating – triggering you with stress, fear and all things scary. 

Why? Because you can shop online with Cat Footwear! We’ve got the best deals and early bird specials for you to take advantage of from the safety of your home so that you can skip the crowds focus on you and your hustle instead. 

If you have to go out this Black Friday though, get up to speed with our Black Friday Survival Guide so that you can equip yourself for a bountiful expedition!


Believe it or not, most of the work is done before you even step out for Black Friday! Here is how your planning and prepping should go.

Ascertain your budget Just because there are killer deals, doesn’t mean it’s impossible to overspend. Avoid getting yourself into debt by setting a limit on your spending for the day.

Make a shopping list 
This is not your average shopping list. Look at all of the ads or even go into the store to check out or fit on items before the Friday, so that you can recognise it easily if it goes on sale and can make a quick call on whether or not you’re taking it without needing to research the details first.

Create a game plan 
Once you have your shopping list, figure out the times that each shop on your list opens and closes and map out your route according to the order of your priority. This will also make sure you don’t overstay in some shops and completely miss out on others.

Pick a shopping buddy We all need an extra hand we can trust while out in the wilds of the Black Friday rush. Your buddy can drop you at the door so that you don’t have to waste precious time looking for a parking spot, and once you reunite, you can help each other carry all the items, hold place in the lines for each other, and just be that good old moral support.


On the Day

Wear strong & comfortable shoes
Not only will you be on your feet the whole day, but you also stand a chance of getting stepped on in the hoards. Tough, durable, comfortable and stylish Caterpillars are the only answer.

Stay hydrated & energised
Keep water and snacks on you to make sure you can keep up without crashing halfway.

Double-check return policies
Make sure you check the return policies before making your purchase in case of changes to what you’re used to for Black Friday.

Take every precaution 
Cat Footwear is designed to protect your feet, but in the heat of the moment, don’t forget other safety precautions like sanitising your hands and practising social distancing.

If this doesn’t sound like you and you’d rather replace the crowds with being out in the urban jungle, opt for the online route so that you can shop from the safety and comfort of your home and boldly enjoy your brand new Caterpillars without the hassle.
