Thanks for the heads up John, but.....

Just found that very sneakily they list their prices ex vat so you have to add 20% before you can take the 25% discount off!

Amazon list the set of grads I'd like 60 cheaper than this Black Friday deal, so, like a lot of these so called 'deals', caution is called for!

Didn't appreciate it was ex-VAT. Cheeky.

Not me, bought a Manfrotto carbon fibre pro3 tripod from Park Cameras for 215.50 reduced from 269.00 plus the Manfrotto free offer of a Pro3 head which is normally 74.26. Total saving 127.76.

Update, the discount should have been 25% so the good folks at Park Cameras have refunded 13.45, total saving 142.21. Offer on till 28th and longer for the freebies from Manfrotto depending what you buy.

Just thought an update might be interesting here!

As mentioned above the set of Firecrest grads I was looking at were 60 cheaper on Amazon at their normal prices compares to this black friday "deal". Even though they were out of stock, I ordered them that day at 268.75.

They are due to be delivered today so thought I'd see if the 'offer' prices had changed and the answer is yes!

Amazon have put their price up to 283.59 and still listed as out of stock, Hitech price is now 427.51 including black friday discount and delivery!

Going by the new prices, I managed to get my new filter set over 158 cheaper than what appears on the surface to be a very good black friday deal.

Be careful out there!

Just an example of shopping around no matter what sort of "deal" is offered
