    Default Is anyone watching out for Black Friday?

    I just noticed that so-called Black Friday is coming up at the end of this week. I know that some people don’t like it, and it’s commercialism run riot, but sometimes there are bargains to be had, and sometimes some good stuff.

    Anyone looking out for it? If so, what?

    In the past some TV subscription channels have been very cheap - and worth a punt. Example - NowTV.

    Any other tips?
    Dave

    If there's something you need while the deals are on then it can work out well.

    I don't get all this fighting in the supermarket ailes for a shite telly they probably don't need anyway and will possibly try to sell at a later date.

    Hotukdeals are handy to keep up with all best deals.

    I need a projector screen but not sure if this is top of the black Friday makers list of stuff to discount but you never know.

    Don't see the point in getting involved with Black Friday deals. A lot of the gear is bulk bought cheapo stuff obtained just for the sales, plus end of range items, re-packed returns and 'B' grade bits.

    I seldom pay full whack for anything anyway and get decent deals all year round. I enjoy a haggle.

    I want to change my telly as it's developed the dreaded Samsung magenta noise, large purple blobs on the screen which means the LED array is failing. I'll look for a Black Friday deal but many retailers have good deals anyway.

    Ian, if you have no joy with Black Friday, I would recommend trying Richer Sounds for a telly. They have a fair bit of "open box/clearance" items, and they are nice people to deal with.

    I'm surprised no one has come along to tell us we can't call it Black Friday any more, and that it's now "Day of Colour".

    I'm after a couple of Amazon Echo Show 5 devices to use as an alarm clock in our bedroom and one in the kitchen for general stuff including video doorbell. I got the kids one each on Prime Day when they were down to £50 from £80 - so hoping they will come down to that again. They sound surprisingly good for their size, and if you're into the whole Alexa thing, remarkable what "skills" are available now and what you can use them for. I'm not bothered about the privacy rubbish - if someone wants to sift through recordings from our house hoping for something interesting they'll be sorely disappointed!

    Cheers Steve, Richer Sounds are great, never had a duff experience with them. They have a nice 4K Panasonic smart TV at a very good price so that's probably the one I'll go for.
