Deal Alert: Black Friday Preview

Black Friday starts now!

Black Friday has traditionally marked the start of the shopping specials. While others have come and gone, the popularity of Black Friday has remained, and it is still a big draw on our wallets.

For this deal alert special, we wanted to bring a preview of some of the deals and promotions that are available as Black Friday specials. Meanwhile, stay tuned as we prepare for a bumber Black Friday deals article this Thursday.


Canva Pro

Whether you’re a freelance designer or a small studio, the importance of having access to the right graphics design platform with the templates, design aids, and images to help you design anything and publish anywhere can’t be overstated. While Canva Free is good, the Pro version has so much more!

With this special offer, you can now pay for one person and get access for another four! Pay just S$17.98 a month for access for up to five people, meaning that access for each person is just S$3.60 a month. You can also scale this as your business grows.

Fitbit Versa 2

The Versa 2 activity tracker by Fitbit is a 2019 release that comes with a fancy AMOLED screen and fancier features like Sleep Score (which rates your quality of sleep on a nightly basis), Smart Wake (which uses machine learning to find out your optimal wake cycle), and Sleep Mode, where the display and notifications are muted as you smack your lips with your eyes closed. If you love sleep, the Fitbit Versa 2 should be the next thing to get, after a mattress and pillow.

Originally retailing at S$318, the Fitbit Versa 2 is now going at S$258 at Harvey Norman. That's a 19% discount!

Norton 360

In this day and age of active online threats, ransomware concerns and malware run amok, it's always good to have an extra layer of security to safeguard your online identity. By now Norton has evolved to a whole lot more than just antivirus, but a Norton 360 plan also guards you against spyware, malware and ransomware. You also get cloud backup storage space, a handy password manager, webcam and firewall protection. Top up for the Deluxe plans you get protection for up to 5 devices, and parental control options to manage your kids' devices.

Save 47% off the normal price for the Norton 360 Standard plan for the first year at just S$39 (instead of S$74 usually). For the Deluxe plan, you can nab at just S$69, which is a 39% savings from the usual S$114 asking price.

LG Gram 14Z90N

LG gram is renowned for its ultra-lightweight build and long battery life, but these traits used to set you back at least S$2k. During the pre Black Friday period, Harvey Norman is pushing the price down to just S$1,699 and once you add it to the cart, the price is slashed by a further S$120. This brings the price down to just S$1,579 for the 10th-gen Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and 512GB SSD. Not to forget, the LG Gram 14Z90 is the latest Gram model for 2020, weighs just 999 grams and comes with all the standard ports you'll ever need, including Thunderbolt 3 support that allows you to expand out to many more possibilities, like hooking up with this Seagate Firecuda Gaming Dock that accords you many more connectivity ports and built-in storage.

Apple MacBook Air 2020 (Intel)

If for some reason you're not ready to jump on to Apple's newer M1-powered MacBook Air notebooks, Harvey Norman's offering you a discount off the Intel version that released earlier this year. Specced with an Intel 10th-gen Core i5 processors with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage, this model used to retail for S$1,899 and is normally offered at S$,1769. For the pre Black Friday period, you get to save 4% more and that brings the final price down to just S$1,698.

As reviewed by us earlier this year, it's a pretty good quad-core notebook for Apple fans who still need to run Windows on Bootcamp or through Parallels Desktop - both of which aren't possible on the newer M1-powered notebooks.

ASUS ZenBook 14 (UM433)

If you are looking for an affordable everyday general computing notebook, the 14-inch ASUS ZenBook 14 UM433 represents remarkable value. It might not be the fastest with a previous generation AMD Ryzen R7-3700U but performance is still quite decent and it’s certainly more than usable for most everyday workloads. Furthermore, it comes with a generous 1TB SSD storage and has AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 integrated graphics that is quite a bit faster than what most other notebooks can offer without discrete graphics. Launched for S$1,398 earlier this year, with Harvey Norman's pre Black Friday offer that takes 8% off the sale price, you can get this for just S$1,194.
