Asda Direct
Breakthrough deals on TVs, Blu-ray players, tablets, smartphones and laptops planned in run-up to Christmas

Some call it Black Friday, but Asda prefers to call its pre-Christmas sale a "cyber weekend" or – worse –  "geekend".

The supermarket chain is lining up a series of price cuts on electrical items this weekend, including TVs, Blu-ray players, laptops, smartphones and tablets.

We've already covered Asda's £40 ONN Blu-ray player, and now it's planning to offer flatscreen HDTV/DVD combis for under £100, an own-brand DAB radio for £20, big discounts on tablets including the Asus Eee Pad Transformer for £399 and a range of budget laptops from £259.

Further "breakthrough deals" will be offered in the run-up to Christmas, says Asda. Many of them are designed to get Britain online as part of Asda's RaceOnline2012 commitment.

Some offers will be available in store, the rest online at or by phone on 0800 952 3003.
