Beat Santa to the sale

26th October 2017

Black Friday & Cyber Monday are Upon us. We know where Santa buys his gifts. Where will you?

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are upon us. A day to go crazy (hopefully not literally) and get a chance to be the first to get your hands on a bargain. This is a great chance to treat yourself AND play Santa!

 

Whether you’re buying for a partner, child or friend, you can save yourself from the last-minute rush and, of course, cost. Although originally an American tradition, this holiday has slowly made its way across the pond, and let’s be honest, who can say no to a discount?

 

To make sure you have a good shopping day, plan your train journey in advance. Make a list of the things you want to buy and try to get there early (if you can).

Black Friday is notorious for crashing chip & pin systems, so if you want to save time and tears, take cash with you as well as your cards.
