Given recent form, we said Debenhams might surprise us, and it did. We went for a 15% off code, but instead its offered a 10% code off a 30% sale in some departments.

MSE's Deal Analysis

M&S hasn't done many discount codes for its main site this year, though it's been generous with those for its online outlet. Looking at past years though, it still seem likely a 10%-20% off main site code is on the cards. However, M&S does tend to be reactive depending on its current trading, so this one's not a certainty.

Gaps been dependable for a 30% offer for the last three years, and it didnt let us down in 2013. Its doing the same again this year, and we were spot on with our prediction of week 4 in November.

Another rock of consistency, Boots has run 1,200 advantage points on a 50 in-store spend (75 online) around the first week in Dec for the last three years. If you're doing a bulk buy, a trick is to split it into several 50 spends to get the most points.

We got the date right, but werent sure whether Matalans 20% off code would be restricted by a minimum spend. In the end, it ran 20% off with no min spend and 30% off for those spending over 50.
