Is anyone buying anything for black Friday?

I've bought one thing only, a present for a big birthday for my mum, that is genuinely half price compared to the best price for the last few months. I think a lot of the deals aren't that great though. How about you?

I bought an echo dot today, down to £22.

I bought a kindle paperwhite and cover.

I'm hoping to get a Nintendo switch for the kids

I bought a kids kindle, a overlocker, an echo dot, some headphones for the dcs stockings.

I’ve got my eye on an Instantpot and the Lifeforme yoga mat. Neither have shifted in price yet but I’m hoping the best deals will come on actual Black Friday 🤞

Absolutely not. I don't buy into any of this consumerist bollocks.

I love this time of year because I automatically delete all emails that have 'Black Friday' in the subject line or body. Makes clearing my inbox a quicker job.

I bought an echo dot and a bigger Alexa. I’ve had my eye on them for a while and I’m pleased with the discount.

GeoffreyAndBungle · 23/11/2019 19:22

I got a Nintendo switch and the new Pokémon sword game in a bundle from currys for £279, v pleased with that as the switch alone is usually £279 and the sword game is £44.99.

DS had asked for a Lego Hogwort’s Express, is prices it at £80 and got it for £50 on Amazon!

TheTurnOfTheScrew · 23/11/2019 21:04

i need a new phone. Actually need - the battery on the old one is shagged and it doesn't last 'til lunchtime. I've been forcing it to limp on while I wait for Black Friday. The one I have my eye on is £70 off right now, but holding fire until the 29th to see if anything better comes along.

Snap, I got one as well. But I also got the smart light bulbs that go with it.
I'm really looking forward to shouting "turn the light on". Grin

Nicknacky · 23/11/2019 21:48

minou123 I’m getting the light bulbs too, it’s for my daughters rooms. How much were yours?

macaroniandpizza · 23/11/2019 21:52

Im fancying a kindle paperwhite and a shark hoover

WotchaTalkinBoutWillis · 23/11/2019 22:56

Nope, I'm the total opposite of Becky Bloomwood Shopaholic and channel her sister Jess.
Do I need it? Did I want or need one before I saw it was 50% off or whatever?!
Then how is it a friggin bargain then?!

BarbedBloom · 23/11/2019 22:58

I have a list of stuff I want to get next week for christmas, but now that the sales start earlier it is difficult to know when to buy in case the price drops further

WalkAwaySugarbear · 23/11/2019 23:04

I bought 2 echo dots 2 weeks ago at £35 Angry so I've returned them today and bought 2 more at £22 Blush. Goddammit. I did nearly wait originally but I got a bit keen with my Xmas shopping.

MitziK · 23/11/2019 23:53

I'm trying to.

But they're selling utter shite at a discount, not the things I actually need, some of which I swear have actually gone up in price.

LBOCS2 · 23/11/2019 23:59

I got a dot, which I already had earmarked as one of the DC's Christmas presents.

I'm eyeing up a Hive thermostat, as we've recently had our heating system replaced and I genuinely hate our new ridiculous thermostat. I feel that Hive would solve a lot of my problems.

I have also been newly tempted by the Echo with a screen but that's definitely a want rather than a need so it's not going in the shopping trolley.

Titsywoo · 24/11/2019 00:01

I bought a hp sprocket for dd as i was planning to get her one for Xmas anyway.

Blibbyblobby · 24/11/2019 00:13

I got a Hive, been planning to get one for a while. AO are doing the heating-only version for 150 including installation!

Also found the laptop I bought 2 weeks ago reduced by £175, grrrrr

minou123 I’m getting the light bulbs too, it’s for my daughters rooms. How much were yours?

I got 2 smart light bulbs for £16.69. One is for my living room, so when I watching the tv and it's getting dark, ivan just shout out to turn the light on! I'm really looking forward to it!Blush

fruityconfusedhotdog · 24/11/2019 06:18

I bought a new changing bag, reduced from £60 to £42. Rock and roll!

WeCameToDanceWithTheDead · 24/11/2019 08:39

I too want a couple of echo dots. I think Curry's have price matched amazon so I'll try there on Monday.
I also want the limited edition Glossybox with the Huda beauty palette. I've wanted that palette for ages so that box looks like an absolute bargain. I really hope I'm fast enough! I'm not usually.

WalkAwaySugarbear · 24/11/2019 09:32

The tablet is was going to get for myself is now £40 off in currys, so I'll be picking that up today, it includes 6m free spotify which would save me £60 as I'm getting us all family spotify for Xmas.
