John Lewis hiked the price of a Samsung Mobile

      I just can't believe what I just saw. An increase on a Samsung Mobile phone. From £119.99 to £139.99!!
      three/four days ago it was £119.99 & I was planning to buy for my daughter who'd been pressuring me to buy her a phone. I told her wait till Black Friday sale and in the time I've been searching everywhere and just came across John Lewis having it at £119.99. Thought lets give it a few more days. Little did I know that they would hike the price up ahead of Black Friday sale.


      I'm still finding it hard to take in!

      LOL!

      Well, for an eleven yr old twins, buying two mobiles at that price seemed kind of reasonable.
      It will go down again maybe even lower due to the sale so dont panic

      Thanks for the assurance. I'll keep an eye on it.
      Don't give in to the pressure, it's the worst thing you can buy for an 11 yr old girl.

      This isn’t unusual at all prices will fluctuate at the moment. Retailers might hike the prices up before Black Friday to make the discount look bigger.

      Black Friday is generally all hype and the best savings are found at other times through the year.

      Keep your eye on it I suspect it will go as lower or lower still in the next week
      Sweet Christmas!

      You should have bought it and returned it if price Wer down!
      Why does it matter? They do a price match anyway.

      Well, I don't know why I thought reputable retailer like JL wouldn't act like Ebay & Amazon sellers during BF and JL's price was lower than all the other stores and mobile network companies. It wasn't even on offer to begin with. Just a normal price.
      Anyway, excitement was short lived. LOL!

      Why wouldn’t they have the same practices as other retailers, it’s not just Amazon and EBay that have fluctuating prices.

      People shouldn’t believe the hype with Black Friday.

      I doubt that unless it was a misprice. If their prices fluctuate it's usually match another shops promotion.
