The offer is applicable on all room types. So, why not grab the option to add some extra space and comfort with the luxury of a suite?

Not actually a Black Friday offer, but an initiative I do like and wish to support is from Kimpton Hotels, who are offering discounts of 15 percent off its Best Flexible Rate at properties everywhere and the hotel group will also donate US$10 per night to the No Kid Hungry charity. This deal can be booked through December 30, for stays until April 30, 2021. No need to be an IHG Rewards Club member to participate.  
Currently, you could instead get a bigger discount from the Black Friday deal and donate part of the savings directly to a charity of your own choice.  But if you miss out this weekend, you still have until the end of December to take advantage of this particular offer.





Another famous luxury hotel/spa/wellness brand is Six Senses.  For folk wanting a little more flexibility in timing their stay, but attracted to all that Six Senses can offer (including magnificent, tranquil destinations), they are offering their Six Senses Plan Now Play Later Certificates with an extra 20% value, valid for three years.  That should provide enough booking flexibility!

Noise-cancelling Headphones / Buds  (Australia)


JB HiFi offer a wide range of brands for noise-cancelling headphones and earbuds, some of which are on sale.  Their offers are regularly updated, so it's worth checking their site regularly.

If looking for Sennheiser earbuds specifically though, the below offers from Sennheiser direct seem to be either better or at least comparable. 

For a bargain, consider the the Momentum True wireless at $149.95 (was $499) are 70% off RRP or perhaps for younger family members, the Momentum Free from only $69.95 (was $329.95) are very affordable and more than 75% off !  Being connected and able to wear them around the neck may also mean they are less likely to lose them!
