Bag a bargain laptop in time for Christmas

Black Friday bargains for all

You need to do your homework about Black Friday deals though: deep discounts are big news all over European websites today, but check the terms and conditions of these offers before you get too excited. Apple is extending its discounts to its European cousins, but some of the best discounts being offered today are achieved through voucher codes that are not valid outside the US.

I'll vouch for that

Techbargains.com is essentially an aggregation site for the likes of NewEgg and other discount voucher sites - and it has its equivalent in the UK too.

For example, SmartClicks is a UK service that sniffs out deals and special offers from a range of stores, including Dixons and Currys.

Another site that was recommended by several PC Advisor readers is Boffer. Like Black Friday itself, it offers a heavy discount on one or a handful of items each day and keeps selling the same item at the cut-price rate for that day only or until stocks run dry.

If you're after money off a disparate range of goods, it's also worth checking out MyVoucherCodes - a site that aggregates deals and displays any that match your search criteria.

It's also worth looking at the bargain and refurbished goods sections of some of the best-known retail brands. Dell Outlet is one good example, as is Toshiba, which uses a £150 cashback incentive for its laptop customers.

It also has a discontinued models section where you can select one of its older laptops, for example, for less.


Similarly, HP Hot Offers operates by selling you a laptop, PC or other item and giving you £100 cashback or a voucher towards your next purchase. Other offers are pure discounts: for example, you can currently pick up its C4850 wireless photo printer for £75 rather than the usual £150.
