Ah, Black Friday is fast upon us. It’s easily the one day where literally anything and everything is up for grabs. People do not care for the welfare of others; if you’re in my way, I’m going to get you out of my way to get to what I want. That’s the Black Friday mentality.
Doesn’t sound too great, does it? Well I’ll let you in on a secret: I’ve never physically contributed to the Black Friday frenzy. What I’m saying here is that I’ve never actually left my comfortable, warm home and put myself in a frantic queue of people barging each other left, right and centre.
That’s where the power of the Internet comes into play. Every Black Friday bargain that I’ve ever been lucky and fast enough to get a hold of has been through the Internet. Hundreds and thousands of companies rightfully see a market for people who would rather avoid the long and tiring queues by waking up early and scouring the Internet for gems.
I am one of these people and you can be too. I’m also kind of enough to share with you some of the gems that I’ve tracked down. It’s another secret I’m about to let you in on.
First up, Zavvi. A popular entertainment retailer, the variety of merchandise they have on offer is incredible. From Blu-Rays, to Funko Pops, to printed t-shirts and so much more, there is always something worth looking into. What’s even better, Zavvi offer free UK delivery across the board.
One of the offers they have going on right now is a 3 for £20 selected box sets. You pick three box sets and get them all for £20 when some of them are singularly priced at that alone. The stuff that qualify for this are also worth a second look: The Bourne Collection (Blu-Ray), Hannibal Lecter Trilogy (Blu-Ray), Home Alone Collection (DVD) and so much more. If you’re big on film/TV or have someone who is, this is the place for good deals.
Next up, SimplyGames. This gaming retailer are hellbent on giving the video game community a stellar Black Friday service. Black Ops III is one of the most sought after games of this Christmas period, easily on the radar of every single person who loves the Call of Duty series.
Problem is, it’s never easy to get these new releases for cheap, especially on platforms like PS4 and XBOX ONE. SimplyGames however have slashed the price from RRP £49.99 to an incredible £34.99 – on both consoles. If you’re an avid video game player or just want to try your hand at the new Black Ops game, SimplyGames are your guys.
Let’s now look at tech stuff. Christmas period is the perfect time to splash out on technology, especially televisions. Black Friday is no different, with a lot of retailers offering huge discounts on some pretty renowned TV brands.
Argos fall into this category and are taking the same approach this year. For instance, this Phillips 24 inch HD Ready TV is going for a mere price of £99.99 when it used to be £159.99. You’re saving over £60 for a TV that is not only of a good brand but comes with all the nifty things one would look for. A good buy for any one who is looking to add to their home entertainment.
Last but not least, there is never a Black Friday without fashion retailers going price cut crazy. It comes at the right time because pretty much everyone is looking to get their winter shopping in. Black Friday is the perfect opportunity because fashion retailers are aware of this and thus start engaging in a frantic battle for as many customers as possible. That means you’re certain to find some amazing stuff going for as little as £10 when their original price would have kept you at arms length.
Two fashion retailers that are aware of this are Topman and River Island. They also happen to be two of the most popular but expensive high street stores around. Furthermore both of these places are offering an incredible 50% off winter clothing online right now.
Jackets and coats that used to be £60-£80 are going for £30-£40 respectively. Any one who knows fashion is aware of the standards in which Topman and River Island operate by and so any purchase you make from there – sale or not – will be worth your money. Take advantage of this right now and get your winter clothing haul in. You’re not sacrificing on quality but you’re saving a hell of a lot of money. Win-win situation.
