    Guys, don't know who here saw this article but for the first time ever the US's Black Friday deals will be coming to the UK!

Once that quantity has been reached or the time limit elapses, the ‘Lightning Deal’ will end. There will be more than 200 great deals available over the five day period including:

    - Over 60% off Nintendo Wii Consoles
    - Over 60% off Flip Mino High Definition Camcorders
    - Over 60% off Microsoft Xbox consoles
    - Canon PowerShot Cameras at less than half price
    - Sony TVs at half price"

    Get read to set up One Click!

    Also, Mods, please feel free to sticky this thread for the duration of the sales (22nd - 26th Nov)

    I've set up One Click with my new credit card.... oh mumma!

    Also, I should imagine it will be a one per customer kind of deal.

    I'm cruising for a Sony HDTV at half price. A Nikon D3000 would also be lovely.

    I respect you for buying an Xbox, the 4GB S version is hot now you can use your own external HDs as storage – it’d be £87 @ 60% off.

    Lets make this thread like the latest Steam bargains thread and post any good stuff we find. I’ve joined Amazons FB page and I’m following them on twitter for the latest.

    (can anyone tell I’m excited?)

    A little bump to this thread for those waiting on the bargain hunting to start.

    So far Take That - Progress and Susan Boyle bargains at 9am ... not quite the Wii for 2p I was hoping for!

    Not that I wanted Take That, Susan Boyle or the aftershave - but I did note that they all sold out within 30 seconds ...

    Gonna be a nightmare if anything decent goes on sale!!
