The only way to save money is, not to spend it.
Too true; I had a look at the various offerings and decided there was nothing I needed or wanted.

Well I was looking to buy an IPhone 7 or 8 but all Apple are offering for Black Friday is a 40 gift card with the phone.
They can stuff that, and will wait for the New Year sales now!

Hi

I ventured out this morning for some Black Friday bargains.

No reductions at all in the Charity Shops.

The sim-free iPhone 7 32GB has a reduction in Argos but it's not much.

Thanks for that Ffosse.
Actually it would be the IPhone 7 Plus I would want, which is the larger 5.5" screen.
669 with 32G storage.
I want it to come down further before I buy, though it is still a lot cheaper than on release.

iPhone 7 Plus price

Launched on September 16 2016
Starts at $769 (719, AU$1,229) for 32GB model

https://www.argos.co.uk/search/get-s...plus-at-argos/

The 7 is 4.7" screen which is bigger is the one that I want.
Or the larger 8 Plus I think it is, but then a lot more expensive of course.

Hi

Don't knock it Boozer.

Some years ago I was in Rhos and went into a small charity shop.

I don't know if it is still there?

Hanging on the wall was a lovely watercolour of a snow covered Yeomans house in Yorkshire.

It is now on the wall of my lounge.

It is the old family home and it cost me 5.

Nice one Swim, and good on you.

Only a few minutes ago online I bit the bullet and purchased the very latest IPhone 8 Plus with 64G Storage. I have purchased it from John Lewis who were the only ones to knock 50 of it making the phone still a whacking 749 citing Black Friday for the 50 reduction! Also John Lewis give a 2 year guarantee.

Anywhere else, including buying direct from Apple it is 799 and only a 1 year guarantee.
I will be . picking it up from our local Spar Shop tomorrow anytime after 2.00PM, and I can't wait to get my hands on it!

700 + for a mobile phone - ouch! Did you ever in your previous life think you'd be paying so much for a phone and thinking you're getting a bargain lol?
