The Apple Watch Series 5, the latest to join the Watch lineup, may not have jaw-dropping discounts from major retailers yet, but reins on deals are starting to loosen as Black Friday draws near. Amazon currently has £10 off the Watch 5, but if that isn't enough incentive, John Lewis is offering a £125 e-gift card with a 40mm Watch 5 (GPS) and Powerbeats Pro wireless earphones bundle.
Keep in mind, the £125 value is for John Lewis rewards members. Non-members receive a £100 gift card instead, but are eligible to apply for a 'My John Lewis' account after purchase and still get the £125 voucher. Sign up for a John Lewis account here.
At £618 for the Watch 5 and Powerbeats bundle, you're not really saving on the individual cost of each device – in fact, you save 95p: the 40mm Watch 5 costs £399 while the Powerbeats cost £219.95, totaling to £618.95. However, the gift card effectively gives you money off any other purchase from John Lewis, presenting an excellent opportunity for those who have started Christmas shopping early.
John Lewis has a dedicated Christmas Gifts page, where you can sort items by prices under £20, under £50 and under £100. The £125 voucher could allow you to pick up multiple gifts if you wish. A couple of tech items we've found are the Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2 Bluetooth Speakers for £89.99 and the HP Spectre Rechargeable Mouse 700 for £69.95 – either of which you could pick up for free and still have money left over.
The e-gift card offer ends 4 November and can be redeemed on other electronics purchases as well. You will need to go to John Lewis's claim page between 1 December and 31 January to get the offer. After you claim, the e-gift card should be emailed to you within three days and will be valid for up to two years in store or online.
