Black Friday or Pizza Friday? 50% off £25 spend at Pizza Hut
If you ask us, Fridays are not for cooking. So if you’re looking to order in this week, look no further. With a minimal £25 spend it’s not exactly a dinner-for-one kind of deal, but the 50% off when ordering on the website or app makes it worth your while – especially if you’re having over some friends for a good old pizza party. Those who prefer a lazy Sunday will not be disappointed either, with the deal running from now until Monday 29 November.

Amazon offers 20% off its warehouse products
As we all know, Amazon is home to pretty much everything you might need – so any Black Friday discounts from this retailer are much appreciated. This year, that includes 20 per cent off its warehouse products! For those of you who are unfamiliar: it’s where Amazon sells used or slightly damaged products – after testing they still work properly of course. Prices from the retailer’s warehouse section are usually lower than in-store for branded items. And as a special Black Friday treat, these products are made even more affordable.
Allow us to explain why Amazon Warehouse is an underrated gem:

Save 35 per cent on Elemis renowned cleansing balm
Elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm, 3-in-1, 100g: Was £44, now £28.60, Amazon.co.uk
Only few UK beauty buffs haven’t heard of Elemis, and here at IndyBest we tested this exact cleansing balm. It’s safe to say, we were suitably impressed. Our reviewer said: “From start to finish, the experience is a luxurious treat, and the generous 100g tub will last months, as you only need a small amount. At full price, this product definitely is a luxury and quite expensive for most, so we’re thrilled to see it discounted.
