Purse is a Bitcoin marketplace that acts as an escrow service that also matches users that want to buy and spend Bitcoin through Amazon wish lists. As Amazon doesn’t support direct purchases with Bitcoin, you can find many items on Purse at a discounted price.
The site offers discounts of up to 33% off of everything if you add items to your cart directly from Amazon and pay with Bitcoin.
Be careful, however, as the site has a low rating on TrustPilot for its services.

NordVPN is one of the best-known names in the VPN industry. The company operates under the legal jurisdiction of Panama, where there are no laws obligating them to keep user data. Also, NordVPN accepts Bitcoin as a payment in addition to other traditional payment systems for their VPN services.
This is probably the best Bitcoin Black Friday deal you can find. NordVPN now has an exclusive deal in which they are offering 3 months free on their 3-year plan, reducing the plan from €391.48/year to €114.33, which represents a discount of 70%.
Their other plans also have attractive discounts. Thus, their 2-year plan was discounted from €260.98 to €108.98, which represents a discount of 58%, and their 1-year plan was discounted from €130.49 to €76.33, signifying a discount of 41%.
The timeline for their offer is very limited, so we suggest you hurry up as soon as you can, if you want a VPN plan.
Webhallen is a Swedish online retailer that sells a wide diversity of products, including games, toys, computer hardware and accessories, home appliances, décor, and many others. The site also accepts Bitcoin for its products. Webhallen now offers discounted products during the Black Friday week.
These have been some of the Bitcoin Black Friday deals we have found for you. Of course, there are many other online and physical retailers that also have attractive offers, but you will have to look for them on your own.
