Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fast approaching, in fact, they’ll be upon us at the end of November (23rd and 26th). That makes this the time you need to be requesting your redemption codes so that you can take full advantage of the deals our partners at Currys PC World will be offering.

How does it work?

Using Techscheme’s employee benefit scheme, you can apply for a redemption code to make purchases from our partners at Currys PC World and Apple. All you have to do is pick out the awesome new piece of tech that you want (whether it’s a new TV, Laptop, Smartphone or more) and request it from your employer.
Once they’ve approved the purchase you will receive a code that lets you buy the item with up to 12% off the price, including the slashed-price offering on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Not only that, but the scheme means that you can spread the cost of those purchases over up to three years, depending on your employer.

Why do I need it now?
A few reasons, firstly, your employer needs to approve the purchase and secondly, once the purchase has been approved we need to send you the code. This can take a variable amount of time, so if you don’t want to be left waiting when the big days come around.

You might need some help in picking out what you want, which is why you might want to take a look at Currys’ buying guides.

What can I buy?
Almost anything tech related! There’s a range of over 5000 tech products you can buy with the scheme. From the latest smart home and smart lighting products, brilliant smartphones and smart watches, new PCs and laptops, cameras, smart heating products, televisions and almost anything else you can think of.

The only big no-no’s are white goods, as they aren’t covered by the scheme. Which is to say dishwashers, fridges, washing machines and the like.

So, what does that look like?
Well, for example, right now, we can save you nearly £70 on the GoPro Fusion 360, almost £100 on a 55-inch Sony Bravia and more than £100 on a 128GB Samsung S9. But, that’s before Black Friday and Cyber Monday savings. We’ll cut up to 12% off the sale price of items, meaning you get an even better deal than anyone else can. Here’s a table from last years best deals to help you out.
Model Original Price Black Friday Price Techscheme Savings Techscheme Price
LG 65" 4K TV £4299.00 £2499.00 £299.88 £2199.12
HP Pavillion £649.99 £449.00 £53.88 £395.12
FitBit Ionic £299.99 £249.00 £29.88 £219.12

As you can see these savings add up, especially on those big-ticket items we tend to wait for this time of year to pick up. Make sure you’ve got your Black Friday and Cyber Monday discount bragging rights by making sure you request your redemption code as soon as possible. Of course, we’ll save you up to 12% and help you spread the cost on tech goods throughout the year, sales or no sale. So, if your employer isn’t signed up to the scheme, tell them about us today.
