Get more for your money in the Black Friday sales with My ID Rewards

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are essentially a way for retailers to sell you more, but on high priced goods, there are certainly some great savings to be made. This year’s event takes place on Friday 24th November and is generally online and on the high street through to Cyber Monday 27th November.

What to look out for

In most cases, the retailers like to keep the details of their Black Friday’s sales in the black box until the day, but we know from past years that big high street name Superdry are likely to offer a minimum 20% discount across the range, couple this with a further 7% when you pay with a pre-purchased shopping card from My ID Rewards and you really are getting a bargain.
Boots are likely to have some fabulous gift sets; maybe Soap and Glory or perhaps Ted Baker at half price? Don’t miss out on a little extra with 6% saving on your pre-purchased Shopping card
Curry’s and PC World have been renowned in past years for selling cut price Laptops, tablets and other top tech devices during their Black Friday event, not to mention household appliances and TV’s. Just how smug will you feel knowing you got an extra 5.5% off more than the person behind you with the same product!
Perhaps you are a parent with two or more Children? Maybe you need to take advantage of the Black Friday Sales to help spread the cost of the Christmas – don’t let it drag you down, get the very best from your money – With My ID Rewards you can save 8% at Toys R Us, 7% across the Arcadia group including Topshop, Dorothy Perkins, Burtons, Wallis and Miss Selfridge’s, 6% at Goldsmiths, the list goes on and on, there is absolutely something for everyone.
