The most exciting day of the year! Hundreds of sets of discounted "imperfect" cloth pads will become available every hour on the hour from 12 midnight to 9 pm (CST) on Black Friday.
This guide will give you some tips and strategies to make your shopping day a success!
1 - Bookmark the "SALE" page and refresh it at the top of the hour. Every clock is different and our sale listings are pre-scheduled to appear hourly based on our web site's internal clock. You'll soon learn when listings appear based on your clock so you can be among the first to see new listings. Here is the link: https://www.
2 - Know your time zone! New discounted imperfect pads will appear from 12 midnight on Friday to 9 pm central standard time (CST) on the day of Black Friday. Check out your time zone and know the time conversion from CST to your time zone in advance.
3 - Know when you have actually purchased an item. Putting items in your cart does not claim them for you. Once payment comes through then they are yours. Add them to your cart, follow the checkout instructions and once you have paid then you will see a screen that has a confirmation number on it. You will also receive an emailed confirmation (if you entered your email address correctly).
4 - Make purchases quickly and frequently. There will be no shipping charges for Canada and USA orders that day. There is no penalty for making many transactions. Sometimes someone else will purchase an item before you and cause it to disappear from your cart. Pay for the item to secure the pads then continue shopping. We will combine all your order totals to apply towards the free gifts.
5 - Add regular stock items to your shopping cart IN ADVANCE. This will save time and you can purchase immediately after adding a discounted set. You can also utilize the Wish list feature on our website. You will automatically be sent free gifts based on your total spent that day.
6 - Remember to select the FREE shipping option at checkout. Shipping is free for Canada and USA customers but ONLY if you select the FREE option. Sorry, we cannot change this and offer refunds afterward.
7 - Target less busy hours if you don't like the rush. Things move quickly most hours of the day but there is some slowing of purchases between 2 am and 6 am.
8 - Have your check-out information ready. Create an account with Tree Hugger Cloth Pads website before the event day so that your address info will auto-populate for you. Also, have your credit card information ready for a copy and paste.
9 - You do NOT need to enter your Free Shipping For Life code on Black Friday. You'll get free shipping (Canada / USA) regardless of using your normal code or not on Black Friday (as long as you select the FREE option). Skip the discount box to make things a little faster.
10 - Have fun. Think of our Black Friday event as a kind of scavenger hunt where discounted imperfect pads will pop up and disappear (as they sell out) every hour (some faster than others) and your job is to find some fun pads to buy.
11 - (super advanced!) Using Search Tags. Use "tags" to search for exactly what you are looking for without seeing every single sale set available. The sale listings will have detailed but hidden "tags" which you can use in the search bar of our web site. Use the search terms "Black Friday" (always), plus a fabric term ("cotton", "flannel", "minky", "bamboo", etc.), plus a pad size term ("night", "liner", "heavy", "light"), plus a fleece type ("original", "windpro"), and even include the time of day being listed to only see the newest sets or an hour you missed ("7am", "12pm", 5pm", etc) (CST time and notice the exact format in the examples). Examples of searches you could put in the search bar: "Black Friday minky light 11am", "Black Friday cotton liners", "Black Friday flannel", "Black Friday windpro 9pm", and any other combination that helps you find and buy what you want faster.
