Not sure what everybody was expecting, it's Black Friday at GiffGaff, not Christmas at some rich grand parent's mansion...

Decent offers on decent phones, just wish there was more offers and maybe also offers on plans or maybe even new "Accessories" category with deals.

I also didn't get the email, but if you go to the homepage while logged in the offers should be there Smiley Happy

That's not the point we're making... GiffGaff are saying: "In order to beat the rushes next week, there will be some special promotions coming up this week which will be strictly available through the links communicated to you!"



I'm not sure how these 3 phones are 'special', and I have absolutely no idea how something like this would be out of stock or limited during Black Friday, it defeats the point of giving us an exclusive look when its not appealing.

Beat the rushes: Most stores haven't started Black Friday yet (Amazon starts tomorrow for example)
Special promotions: Right now, the Huawei P20 Pro 128G is listed at 629£ on early Amazon Black Friday deals. Apple doesn't even do Black Friday really.
Links communicated to you: I received the email with the link, and the deals are only showing if you're a client logged in onto the site, as "exclusive" as can get I think.

I agree 3 phones are a little disappointing, but out of those 3 phones 1 could easily go Out of stock easily, another one is a good entry to iOs, and the other one is a really good price for a first Smartphone or a Budget phone.

Well, @lausef , as you were solipsistically saying, planning something big/beat the rushes/likewise at giffgaff etc etc the "world wide like" Black Friday at giffgaff hasn't quite got the expected glittery shine to it as most here have seen. Will the honourable member give us something meaningful or will this little offering prevail.
