Bitcoin Black Friday is making an appearance this year
Do you own Bitcoins? Well, if you do, then you can take advantage of a nice new site that offers Black Friday deals created specifically for Bitcoin users.The hectic shopping season opens up today, as many retailers chose to start up the deals on Thanksgiving Day, hoping to steal the start, but many of them are keeping tradition and will only open doors tomorrow.
Bitcoin Black Friday, however, is a site dedicated to owners of the virtual currency and starting on Friday, November 29, hundreds of retailers will be offering up deals there.
Some of the deals don’t seem to be too exciting, but you can certainly locate a bunch of things you could want to buy with the coins in your virtual wallet. The deals are divided into categories, which makes for very easy browsing. You can get apparel, art, accessories, consumables, electronics, gifts, music, software, trips, and many other things.
For instance, you can also use your Bitcoins to contribute to charities, get a new domain name, change hosting, or get a Christmas tree way ahead of time.
One of the cool deals that’s getting offered is a mobile gift card app, Gyft, that gives users 4 percent back when buying gift cards from a range of supported retail partners, including Gap, Nike, Old Navy, Gamestop, and Target, to name just a few of the hundreds listed on the site.
All in all, the deals are nice and the fact that they’re dedicated to Bitcoin users makes it that much cooler for those who own the extremely popular digital coins.
Given the fact that Bitcoins just passed the $1,000 (€736) mark yesterday, you’ve certainly got more money in your pocket to shell out on the hundreds of deals that were made available.
