Newegg brings Black Friday deals to Australia


From today until ‘Cyber Monday’ on 30 November, with new deals posted ‘throughout the week’, Newegg promises more than 260 ‘deep discounts’ are now available.

When Black Friday brings so many discounts to so many people, the only reason it might be a ‘black’ day is if you miss out on them - or if you get into one of those fights we see on US TV news reports.

There is, however, a way to avoid rowdy crowds, and that’s to shop online, which can be done without having to wait for ‘Cyber Monday’ to roll around first.

Score yourself a great deal, and even though you’re down under, you might be doing some thanksgiving of your own in appreciation of your good financial fortune.

Miss out, and you might just have to wait until Black Friday deals roll around again in 2016, which is a long time to wait!

So, which US company that recently starting shipping to Australia is now bringing the Black Friday and Cyber Monday to we the people?

Well, it’s no secret if you’ve read the headline to this story - it is US tech company Newegg, longstanding in the US but only newly arrived to Australian shores with Australian shipping.

Details below - please read on!

James Wu, COO of Newegg said: “Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days in America and we want to share some of the deals with our friends in Australia.

“To that end, Newegg will offer hundreds of great deals before, during and after Black Friday, giving bargain-hunters the opportunity to get a jump on their holiday shopping.”

As Newegg boasts, it has ‘long been the destination of choice for tech aficionados,’ and clearly, to ensure that the company gains more fans and does more business in Australia, it is going all out with Black Friday deals for us down under.

The company stays that this Black Friday, it ‘will offer amazing deals for video game enthusiasts, DIY makers and anyone else seeking great prices on the best tech products.

Newegg Australia says its Black Friday sale is on now and continues through Cyber Monday on 30 November 2015, with more than ‘260 deep discounts’ on offer, some presumably still to come during the week as a tempter for customers to keep coming back to the site to check.
