Amazon.co.uk offers some deals up to Black Friday. This one could be interesting for us.

I haven't had time to dig through the games yet, so if you spot something good, write in the comments!

Amazon up to their typical shenanigans, a cursory check of Camelcamelcamel shows prices spiking before the sale.

30% off = price pre-sale.

I thought this behaviour had been stopped last year.

Nothing hugely impressive so far if you don't like Monopoly and jigsaw puzzles:

Ticket to Ride: Europe £28.77
Codenames £12.68
Rush Hour (apparently not Rush Hour Shift but looks like the same publisher) £13.49
Camel Up £18.33
One Night Ultimate Werewolf £19.70

Why not just post the Amazon deals individually?

Typical retailer habit and been going on for ever. It's usual for shops to sell at a high price or even put up the price for 28 days before a sale starts to establish the 'was' price.

Amazon are just easier to catch as prices are tracked.

In a previous job I learned the price of our newest product was always set and then doubled so we could sell it for 4 weeks at the inflated price and then go to 50% very quickly.

Yes, I have had the same experience. Sale prices were (and I assume still are) based on a price you had to have had the product on sale for in a store within the chain for a set amount of time within the last 12 months. The place i worked used to get a new product, make it available at only a single store for an inflated price for 3 months, sell none of them, and then roll it out at a "reduced price" in all the stores later the same year.

Not to derail this too much but I heard of a story recently where a couple went to purchase a sofa from DFS (loughborough) and were shocked to find it at full price and the salesman was unable to sell. To seal the deal he phone DFS (another location) and got it at the discounted price from there instead.
