The best UK deals for Tuesday: Beats headphones, Ultimate Ears speakers, Playstation bundles, and more
The Amazon Christmas sale only has a few more days to run and you’re therefore running out of time to pick up a great bargain. In today’s round-up of the best deals from across the sale, we have found the best audio offers for you, including deals on speakers and headphones.
Before we get to that, though, we need to talk about the deal of the day. What good is a great set of speakers or a stylish pair of headphones without something to listen to? Amazon Music Unlimited is currently available for just £0.99 for three months. It would usually cost £9.99 a month, so this really is a stunning price. This deal is available until Jan. 2 but why delay when the Christmas break is fast approaching?
We have tracked down some great deals on speakers and headphones including a Beats Pill+ portable wireless speaker for £129.99, a Ultimate Ears Megablast bluetooth speaker for the same price, and Beats Solo3 wireless headphones for just £159.99. It’s not easy to pick a best deal but the Bose QuietComfort 20 acoustic noise cancelling headphones stand out at £149.95. That’s a £100 reduction on the usual price.
It’s not all music focused in this round-up. We have also hand-picked the best gaming deals from the Amazon Christmas sale. If you act fast you can pick up a Sony PlayStation 4 (500GB) console with Red Dead Redemption 2 for a reduced price of £229.99.
These are the best deals from across the internet for Dec. 18.

In case we hadn’t mentioned it, Black Friday is underway.
Of course you know this by now. It’s not like it hasn’t been all that we’ve talked about for weeks. We see only pound signs now, by the way. We think only in terms of deals, and when we try to speak, only the words “Black Friday” come out. Send help.
As each day has passed, more and more great deals have dropped, but something has been amiss. There’s been a distinct lack of gaming deals to get stuck into. Sure, the and for £249.00 is a great deal, but other than that, not a lot.
That is until now. Amazon has spiced up its Black Friday UK sale by launching a huge number of gaming deals for Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo, and on loads of games. You can pick up an Xbox One S 1TB Fortnite console for £179.99, a PlayStation 4 1TB + Spiderman for £269.99, and FIFA 19 (PS4/XB1) for £34.00. That’s just a flavour of this gaming deals drop. There are masses of amazing console deals, bundle offers, and special edition games, all at heavily reduced prices.
We have sourced the very best of the Amazon Black Friday UK gaming deals for you. Here they are, enjoy!
Black Friday is an ideal time to pick up a new gaming console thanks to the sheer variety of bundles that are on sale. One of our favorites this year is the Spider-Man bundle for PlayStation 4, which is discounted to $199 at a bunch of different stores. Just where will this gaming bundle be on sale, you ask? Keep reading.
We’ve seen the deal cycle in and out of stock all day, but it’s obvious that stores are holding inventory and will keep releasing more in the lead up to Black Friday. So whether you’re a wannabe web-head or just want a good system, the PlayStation 4 1TB Spider-Man bundle for $199.99 is a deal you’ll want to get your hands on.
Here’s where you can get it:
PlayStation dominates the field when it comes to exclusive gaming releases, and Spider-Man is one of the biggest of 2018. (Seriously, Xbox can’t even compare.)

I’m calling it — this is the best deal of this year’s Black Friday season, for gamers anyway. It’s amazing. It’s spectacular. Sony is selling a PlayStation 4 Slim with the new Spider-Man game for $199. That’s way too little money.
The 1TB PS4 slim currently retails for $300, and that used to be the cost of the 500 GB one. So a $199 price for the improved, terabyte-capacity console would already be a great deal. But throwing Spider-Man in there? I’m not usually one to call out individual details for Black Friday (we’ll have a roundup) but this is ridiculous.
That game came out just the other day, and has garnered absolute rave reviews; plenty of TechCrunch staff have lost dozens of hours to it, and expansions are on the way to suck even more time. It’s still going for full price most places, so that’s worth $50 or $60 right there.
I own a PS4 already and I’m going to do this. The Slim update didn’t change a lot, but it’s quieter, easier to use (no more invisible buttons!), and of course considerably smaller. Getting it for $139 is a no-brainer. Comes with a controller too, obviously. Then I trade in the old one and pick up Tetris Effect on store credit!
Sure, you could also save your money for a PS4 Pro. But the benefits there, while I wouldn’t call them dubious by any means, aren’t really must-haves for most gamers. Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t going to look that much better unless you’ve also got a 4K HDR setup and all that jazz. If you’re super into the AAA games and best possible graphics, by all means go for it, but for the rest of us who’d rather buy another 4 or 5 games with the money we saved? Slim it is.
There’s also a PSVR bundle for $200 and controllers are cheaper too. But the Slim is obviously the centerpiece here. You’ll have to go to “participating retailers” and probably fight people like me to get the deal, which goes live on November 18 like all the others.
