No. 1: Plan ahead
Stay ahead of others and plan what you want so you can zoom in on deals as soon as they happen. This year, add the items to your cart ahead of the sale so you can just hit the checkout button once the deals are live!
No.2: Research and review
Stay clear of buyer's remorse by researching the products you are planning to buy. Check out product descriptions, specifications and customer reviews on SOUQ ahead of the sale. Make sure to compare items with other recommended products in the same category so you don't miss out on alternatives. For the fashion deal hunters, don't forget to look at size charts and all the photos for the clothing items.
No.3: Start early and watch for updated deals
Just as athletes are up and ready for the race at the crack of dawn, competitive shoppers must start early and keep an eye out for hourly deals. Don't dilly-dally after you fill your shopping cart, you only have a few minutes to complete your purchase. So make sure to cross the finish line before being tempted by other deals. You can always make multiple, separate transactions instead.
No.4: More payment options from online to your door step
As safe as online shopping is on SOUQ, you now also have the option of paying by credit card payment on order delivery. Every deliveryman in the UAE will be armed with a card machine so don't hesitate to choose to pay at your doorstep.
No.5: Download the app

P.S. Don't forget to take a quick break from shopping to run out and get some refreshments, oh wait! You can get that too on SOUQ White Friday.
