Our definitive guide to the best alternative Black Friday bargains, from days out to meal and movie deals — plus win £15,000 in our Raffle

While one new study says we are set to spend around £206 per person today, you may want to consider some alternative Black Friday buys infiltrating the big sale.

Here’s my guide to the best of the rest . . .

  • Days out: Red Letter Days have indoor go-karting sessions for £26, down from £40, at venues across the country. Meanwhile, Virgin Experiences have extra deals at virginexperiencedays.co.uk/blackfriday. They include offers on a family visit to London’s Kew Gardens, or to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
  • Movies: Get £11.40 cashback if you buy an Unlimited Card Subscription from Cineworld, via TopCashback — a saving of up to £6.40 on the first month’s subscription fee. Subject to terms, sub-scribers can see any film they like, as many times as they want and also get up to ten per cent off drinks and snacks. Offer is only valid this weekend. For those who like to stay in, NOW TV are offering a Sky Cinema pass for two months for the price of one — £9.99 instead of £19.98.
  • Petrol: Esso are softening the blow of filling up your tank this Black Friday. The fuel provider is offering motorists £5 off petrol or diesel when they spend at least £10 on fuel and pay using PayPal via the Esso app. But the offer is only available until midnight on Saturday, November 24, or until it has been used 16,000 times — so be quick.
  • Restaurants: If you work up an appetite bargain-hunting, restaurants are offering deals and freebies. Get free fries at participating KFCs and Sizzling Pubs are offering 33 per cent off ALL food until November 23 — you just need to download the app.
