Black Friday, the annual deals frenzy that hits America and in recent years has been spreading to the rest of the world, is almost upon us again. Retailers are all climbing aboard as they vie for your attention – and your money – with ‘Black Friday’ sales staring days before 28 November, and some retailers starting as early as Monday 24th. Here’s a round up of some of the big players that we know are taking part:
Amazon starts Black Friday Deals Week on Monday 24 November but they’re already increasing the number of Lightning Deals they are doing. For the ‘official’ Black Friday savings on digital cameras, MP3’s, DVDs, video games and much more, however, keep an eye on Amazon’s Black Friday deals here*.
Argos seem to be reserving Black Friday sales for, well, Black Friday, but they’ll be holding an apparently huge sale on tech, toys, TVs and more. You can find out more when it’s live by checking for Argos’ Black Friday sales here*.
Love them or hate them, Very are promising an amazing sale, with free returns and free next day delivery with Collect+. They are being pretty tight lipped about the offers you can expect. On the day, however, you’ll be able to find everything you need from Very’s Black Friday here*.
If it’s consumer technology and household goods you’re after, get yourself to Curry’s on Black Friday – online of course… I wouldn’t be heading into a shop if you paid me. If you are braver than me though, stores open at 8am on Friday 28th and queues may form. They’ll be doing offers throughout the day on Twitter too and will be discounting TVs, washing machines, cameras, tablets and more. Make sure you don’t miss anything, by clicking here for Curry’s Black Friday sales*.
One to watch out for this year is John Lewis, who reckon they’ll be price matching their competitors, so if that’s more convenient for you, you’ll want to check out John Lewis’ Black Friday sales* as they are selling tablets, laptops, TVs and small and large electrical appliances too.
The LEGO Shop are giving their VIP buyers double points on purchases over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend. If you spend £25 you’ll get a free exclusive 2015 calendar to collect in January, and if you spend more than £50 you’ll get a free exclusive Christmas set. Spend over £100 and you’ll get an additional 5% off. Not as great as last years 10%, but it’s rude to look a gift horse in the mouth, and all that. You’ll be able to find out more at The LEGO Store*
I’ve never actually seen an in the flesh, so to speak, B&M Store, but we know they are popular with our readers. If you’re one of them, then you can enjoy 10% off everything at B&M Stores on 28 November, and they’ll be open till 10pm, apparently, to give you extra shopping hours. Head to B&M to find out more*
Internet Gift Store
Using the code FRIDAY15OFF on the 28th of November, you’ll be able to take 15% off all orders at Internet Gift Store*. On Monday you’ll get the same again, but using the code CYBER15OFF. This is a good opportunity to pick up those not-on-the-highstreet gifts and stocking fillers.
I'm sure we'll have more to share with you soon, so keep an eye on PlayPennies Facebook page for the latest offers!
