All the best Black Friday deals on iPads from Apple, Argos, John Lewis and more
We may curse Black Friday as an American tradition that’s ferreted its way into British culture, but there’s no denying Brits love a bargain too.
Especially when it’s on an item you were going to buy anyway (only a fool browses Black Friday sales without intention, ending up with a cheap saucepan set, a cat bed and some Diamonique earrings).
Tech never has the biggest discounts – thanks to the fact shops already make such a small margin on those products anyway – but most have discounts on at this time of year so, if you were planning to buy anyway, then you have nothing to lose.
Occasionally a shop will use a highly desirable tech item as a loss leader – a product they know they will lose money on that acts as a lure to get shoppers into store where they are confident they will buy more – but you’ll have to be quick with the real bargains as they are the ones that will go the fastest.
Apple is not doing a Black Friday sale as such – they are as usual offering a gift card worth up £120 free with certain purchases (up to £80 on iPads) in a ‘one day sale event’. So check the prices you find for iPads elsewhere because you might find Apple’s deal of a £120 or £80 card works out better for you.
