And so, Black Friday is upon us and, like most notable dates, this one has a relaxed attitude as to when it starts.
Along with Cyber Monday, there’s going to be a dizzying amount of deals and bargains knocking about, so we’re collating the best ones here so you don’t have to trawl through the sea of nonsense and rubbish deals that are being tossed out.
Remember, some of these deals will be timed or sell-out, so don’t complain to us if they’ve vanished. We’ll be updating this regularly, so keep checking in. The most recent deals will go at the top of each section.
Aldi are trolling everyone again.
In case you didn’t believe it, Asda are indeed selling quad bikes like it’s no big deal. If you have £3,500 burning a hole in your pocket and fancy driving around on something that makes you look like a stuntman, go nuts!
It all got a bit crackers in Blackpool, thanks to the offer Tesco were doing on TVs. There were similar scenes up in Scotland too. We look forward to adult movie parodies called Housewives Go Wild In The Aisles.
A lot of the sites aren’t able to cope with the amount of traffic they’re getting. Argos have been having bother, as have Tesco. Some sites have implemented queueing systems, so don’t fret if you can’t get on the sites. Log-on to Currys as soon as you can and it’ll remember your place in the queue. If you’re at work, fool your boss while shopping at your desk with these helpful tips!

If you work in an office with an internet connection, then you don’t need to miss out.
That means, you don’t have to use up your holidays, throw a sickie and get paid while dossing about on the computer. If the company you work for have it in your contract that they can snoop on your internet history, then let’s be clear on this – you do it at your own risk and Bitterwallet will show zero sympathy or compensation if you get sacked or anything else.
Okay? Good. Let’s have a look at some of the things you can do to buy a load of stuff while sat at your desk.
KILL YOUR BOSS
If you want to get away with shopping, kill your boss. Also, kill any snitches too. If killing seems a bit much, then simply maim them.
Use an incognito window while shopping at your desk without your boss cottoning on. This method of browsing automatically deletes cookies, browsing history and any other data from your hard drive. Sadly, it isn’t a feature on all browsers, but if you have Chrome, Safari, IE, Firefox or Opera, you’ll be fine. All you need to do is press these buttons, if you’re not willing to execute your boss.
Chrome: CTRL+SHIFT+N (or, if you’re on a Mac: SHIFT+COMMAND+N )
Safari: Click the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and hit ‘Private Browsing’
Opera: CTRL+SHIFT+N for Windows; on a Mac press SHIFT+COMMAND+N
Internet Explorer: CTRL+SHIFT+P
Firefox: CTRL+SHIFT+P for Windows; on a Mac press SHIFT+COMMAND+P
To toggle quickly between tabs while keeping an eye out for people who might grass you up, use keyboard shortcut CTRL+TAB and you can flick between windows without anyone noticing. Or, if you maim your boss or murder them, toggling is completely needless.
THE UPSET STOMACH
Pretend you’ve got the squits. That way, you can regularly sneak off to the toilets and check out all the deals on your mobile. All the app stores have farting sound effects apps you can get, for added authenticity. Or you could just stick an axe through your boss’s spinal column.
THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK
Take a screengrab of your work. That way, you can have a full screen image of what you’re supposed to be doing when people check out what you’re doing. It is like creating a mask for your computer. Or, if you’re on Chrome, you can download the ‘Boss Button’ extension, which hides your screen’s activity while your gaffer is snooping around. Or, if you like, you could throw you boss face-first into a wood chipper. Up to you.
Our DOTD is the Samsung 55 inch 3D-ready, smart WiFi HD 1080p LED TV which comes with all the things you’d expect from a swish telly, but also, has a free Samsung Soundbar with Bluetooth & External Sub! Yours for £899 if you’re splashing out. See it here.

Today, things are really heating up with Amazon’s lightning deals, with a number of good offers on movies, gadgets, clothes, mobiles and more, being offered at knock-down prices.
Instead of hanging around and reading these words, you should hurry your arse up and get over to Amazon as the deals aren’t around for long. That’s why they’re called ‘lightning’ deals, obviously.
To see Amazon’s lightning deals, visit amazon.co.uk/lightningdeals and be sure to hit the ‘upcoming’ tab if you want a little more time to browse the offers.
Happy bargain hunting.
Of course, most Bitterwallet readers are seasoned bargain snufflers who need no help (if we ignore the appalling personal hygiene and social skills issues), but for those new to Black Friday, we’ve got some top tips!
Click here to see all the best Black Friday bargains. That’s as good a place to start as any!
If you’re determined to grab a bargain, you’re going to have to get up early. If you’re mad/brave enough to get down the shops to wrestle someone for a new telly, then you’ll have to start queuing up the night before. If you’re sticking to online sales, then you need to be up bright and early before the shops run out of stock.
KNOW WHAT YOU NEED!
Research what you’re after now. If you start panic buying gadgets because they’re cheap, rather than good, then you’ve only yourself to blame. There’s a difference between stuff that is genuinely marked down and stuff the shops couldn’t get rid of last week, but are now throwing in your face because you’re determined to spend some money. Stores also do peculiar things with strategic product placement in their shops on Black Friday, so don’t be wooed by them throwing lousy products at you.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
Remember: keep your receipts. The madness of Black Friday might see you lumbered with something rubbish and you can still return things to the shops. You are covered by the Sale of Goods Act 1979, so don’t fret.
GO WITH WHO YOU TRUST!
There’ll be a lot of fraudsters online this week, so keep an eye out for them. If you’re unsure about the validity of somewhere or a bargain seems too good to be true, then walk away. Stick to the names you know and trust.
DON’T FORGET CYBER MONDAY!
There’s going to be a lot of bargains knocking about on Cyber Monday and a good number of people think it’ll offer even more good deals than Black Friday. If you miss out, then you’ve got another day of sales.
Don’t assume that the prices online are the same as the prices in-store on Black Friday. If you’re serious about Black Friday, get down the shops first while checking out the deals online.
THE 40% RULE!
If you’re buying clothes, shoes or accessories, Black Friday might not actually be the best time of the year to pick up a bargain (January is usually better). With that, it is worth applying the rule of ignoring anything that offers less than 40% off the full retail price.
If you want to be a gamer hipster and have a console that’s different from everyone else’s, you can either knit a handlebar moustache and pop that on the front, or get under the hood and start soldering things and set your motherboard on fire.
Or, if you’re less daft, you can get a limited edition version of the PlayStation 4. That’s right – you can get your paws on a PS4, in ‘glacier white’ for £299.99! Great price for a next-gen console. Have a look at the deal here.

We’ve already given you the heads-up about the best places to keep an eye on for a Black Friday bargain, but what is it all about?
In case you’ve missed the build-up, Black Friday (no-one really knows why it is called that) sees a load of retailers flogging a load of cheap products to everyone – there’s some preposterously great deals to be found, if you’re willing to wade through the pish.
Imagine e-retailers turning themselves into a jumble sale for the day, and you’re halfway there.
Various analysts reckon that £5billion will be spent on the day on things like knock-down tablets and tech, as well as toys, clothes, TVs, video games, fridges and more. Amazon are really getting in the mood, with ‘lightning deals’, as well as announcing that they’re going to be sending out offers through Snapchat.
And next Friday just so happens to be payday for a lot of people, so the rush for bargains is going to be hot.
You’ll see that, at the tail-end of the week, there’s going to be people queueing up outsides shops overnight and businesses hiring extra security to deal with people attacking each other to get their mitts on stuff.
Over in America, they go particularly nuts, as you can see from the video.
In the UK, we’re a bit more reserved, but Stateside, some years ago two men were shot dead when scrapping broke out in a Toys R Us (no seriously) and a Wal-Mart worker was trampled to death in New York as crowds rampaged through the doors.
Sainsbury’s will be joining in Black Friday for the first time this year, and a number of others. We’ll keep you informed as to who will be taking part, who has the best deals and who you shouldn’t bother with. And, following Black Friday, is Cyber Monday, which is effectively the same thing.
Argos have started their countdown, and Amazon have already put some lightning deals up (but appear to be saving the big-guns for later in the week). Very.co.uk have already started taking the prices down on women’s fashion items too.
So prep the debit card – it might be doing overtime at the end of the week. Just don’t shoot anyone, okay?
There’s going to be an offer surrounding the Pebble Smartwatch, 64% off a Kenwood food processor and deals on movies and all manner of stuff.
You can have a look for yourself here, and join ‘waiting lists’ if you’ve really got designs on something in particular.
Meanwhile, Asda are promising big things and contacted Bitterwallet to say that they’ll be “leveraging the buying power of parent company Walmart – renowned for Black Friday deals in the US where the event is worth a whopping $60 billion – to bring earth-shattering deals to customers in the UK.”
Earth shattering eh? One thing they’re very excited about is an offer on quad bikes, where you can get one worth £6,500 for £3,500. If you’re interested in that sort of thing, we’re told the quad is the Coleman 400 ATV 4×4 which has “a fuel injected motorsports engine and independent front suspension and swing arm rear” and a “3.6-gallon fuel tank and 393cc engine has a towing capability of 1200lbs and comes with an electronic winch”.
Whether there’s a big demand for quad bikes remains to be seen.
Asda are keeping Black Friday product details a secret until they are revealed next Thursday on 27th November. There’ll be more information over at Asda’s website, but we’ll round up the best deals they have, so be sure to check out Bitterwallet on the day.
The problem with buying a new console is losing all those games you bought for your old one, made even worse when console-makers ensure that their new gadgets aren’t backward compatible. It is enough to make you want to go postal, like a real-life GTA lunatic.
Well, here’s a deal that should interest you. You can get a new Xbox One with FIVE whole games in the bundle! For £349, you get your console with copies of Titanfall, Wolfenstein, Forza 5, Battlefield 4 and Metal Gear Solid V Ground Zeroes! Not bad eh? Have a look here.
