Best friends day

Best friends are like soul mates, but they can be incredibly tough to shop for. Even if you talk (or at least message them) every day, when it comes to gifts, the sheer volume of options available can send you down a vortex of Pinterest boards and DIY YouTube videos until you are inevitably forced to buy a gift card to their favorite coffee shop... Boring!  Don’t fret, because Slickdeals curated the best gift guide for your best friend yet.

For the TV Binging BFF


Since streaming premium television has basically become a utility, offering to pay your bestie’s Netflix subscription for a year would make you the most practical friend on earth. On the flip-side, you could just hand out your password, which would accomplish the same thing and lets you avoid paying the Netflix premium price hike. Long story short, you'll be having "Orange Is the New Black" slumber party marathons all year. Netflix subscriptions start at $7.99 per month.

For the Friend That Likes to Dance Like No One’s Watching


For the best friend who seems to knows every word to every song ever written, concert tickets would make for a great night out, plus it's a treat for both of you. Groupon offers a great selection of concerts all across the country.  Some concert tickets start as low as $8 per person. Currently, you can use promo code TUBULAR to get 20% off any local deal, and you can find more Groupon promo codes here.
