With an overwhelming amount of Black Friday deals, we’ve decided to put all the exciting ones – or at least the ones we were told about – together to save you time when saving money.

Over at Shopper Points, we cover some general Amazon deals in this article.  Here at HfP we are focussing on travel offers.

We covered the British Airways £1008 Club World deal yesterday – click here for that article.  If Virgin Atlantic is up to anything, they didn’t tell us!

IHG’s Europe Winter Sale

Ok this one is not a ‘proper’ Black Friday Sale, as this sale has been going on for a few days already, however as we haven’t covered it yet, it deserves a spot in our Black Friday list.  It covers InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, HI Express, Staybridge Suites, Hotel Indigo and other IHG brands.

Book directly via the IHG website before 24 February for stays between 2nd December and 27th February to get up to 30% off rooms.  This offer is exclusive to IHG Rewards Club members but you can sign up for free if you are not already in. decided to do a Purple Friday instead of Black Friday. As we couldn’t find any other purple deals, they are allowed to appear on our Black Friday list.

The deal is: get up to 30% off hotel stays when booking via this link today.

T&Cs on when to travel are shown on the individual booking pages.

Hilton Winter Sale

This one is also not a ‘proper’ Black Friday Sale and we have covered it in this article.  However we thought a reminder of Hilton’s winter sale won’t do any harm.

In brief: If you are a Hilton HHonors member, you can save up to 30% on weekend stays until the end of 2017 when booking via the Hilton website before 31st December.

  • Alan says: – enter SKISKISKI as promo code for 5% discount – handy for those of us in the regions! Edinburgh-Geneva return with 22kg hold bag and exit row seating came to £144 per person for a direct flight, vs 18,000 Avios + £70 (£205 at my 0.75p valuation) for a BA RFS flight that would also require connecting through LHR! Previously BA was half that price therefore a little cheaper albeit with more hassle – now it’s a no-brainer to avoid them!
