Black Friday has now become one of the biggest shopping events of the year UK and the good news is, it’s also become bigger and better, with big names such as John Lewis also participating in it this year.
It hasn’t always been great, but with bargain hungry consumers desperately searching for top deals for their Christmas wish list, retailers have promised some great deals for 2017.
MMM has been looking around and handpicked some deals, but remember, before you splash the cash, always ask yourself if you actually need it and if you can afford it. Look at the price, not just the discount.
It’s a good idea to also do your research – see if the ‘deal’ really is a deal, and if something is too good to be true, then it probably is – always be wary of potential scams and make sure you shop from reputable and genuine sites.
Make a list of what you want and stick to it – don’t just start adding things to your basket for the fun if it, because Christmas could become financially difficult otherwise. Finally, set yourself a strict budget.
Ok, now that we’ve given you the pet talk, let’s take a look at some top deals and gift ideas – and where to find them:
It’s not often you see Uggs discounted, but this Black Friday, you can grab them with as much as 50% off. Not all styles are half price, but the discounts are pretty generous. We rarely see this discount, so if you want a pair, now is a good time.
50% off Uggs
The Perfume shop has slashed prices off some top name perfumes.
For example, the Burberry Body Tender (60ml) perfume will go for just £16.99 – saving over £30 – and it smells fab!
The Jimmy Choo Flash is also just £199.99 – usually £46.00
If you love make-up and beauty, Superdrug has some amaxing deals, and some great gifts sets (or for yourself) on it’s well renowned Revolution make up palettes – they are tops and better still, great price.
There are plenty to choose from, many are reduced for Black Friday.
And speaking of make-up, MMM loved this LED mirror – it has three sides and lights up oh so bright – not more make-up in poor lighting. It’s £20, down from £30.
Amazon is pretty much responsible for Black Friday in the Uk, so we expect good deals from the online retailer.
And if you fancy it, Amazon has for the first time has a pop up shop in London, Soho – you can see a number of items and then you simply scan a QR code to order.
