Nothing as I have not seen a "deal" worth getting, from RS or Amazon etc.

IMO it's just turning into a farce with worse deals than 2 weeks prior to it.

Nothing here either. Wasn’t looking for any “big ticket” thing, and didn’t see anything cheap that was a genuine bargain.

Honestly what a massive let down this was. I had a big list but bought absolutely zero items. Plus side is I'm over 3k better off. Some places had no movement at all and some were even hiked compared to last week. I had to request a price match from a price 7-10 days old. WTF.

Proof that they're all in on it. Rip off Britain got coined for a reason. Sod 'em.

Exactly, prices were higher than they have been recently! I'll hold off now until after christmas.

I was sorely tempted to pull the trigger on a Trinnov Altitude, but the saving wasn’t large enough (though still decent) and I had to remind myself that a nice big tax bill will be waiting for me in Jan. More reasonably, I was looking for a Bluesound Node 2i, but I could not find any discounted anywhere. As others have observed, nothing seemed any cheaper than at any other time.

Edit -

Removed my original post because I realised afterwards that the thread was in the Television section.

If you think Britain is a rip off, have a look at the prices of everything over here in Ireland especially cars. Everything is more expensive even allowing for the exchange rate. I try and buy everything from the uk.

I think you meant GZ950 - that is a fantastic price for the top OLED (IMO) :)

Picked up a wimius 1080 S1 projector for £164.... Thought I would try a projector just to see what they are like ( without spending a small fortune ) .. Cannot fault it ( at moment) fan a little noisey , but from what I hear , most projectors are.
Also Roku stick ( grey boxed) for £29.99

Ordered an LG OLED65C9PLA for £1679 delivered from RS, not exactly a bargain, but the cheapest I've seen one.

LG 49UM7400PLB £349 5 year guarantee from John Lewis. Discovered a rattle in the screen - loose panel so going back! Magic remote great, but really hard to get the settings right for legacy tv and movies.
