This is a detailed list of all the current major high street and online retailers' sales. Often there are massive discounts, but it’s all about the timing.
Before you get seduced by the sales, follow this checklist first.
1. Check for vouchers: See the Shopping Vouchers guide.
2. Benchmark prices: Use the MegaShopBot to compare prices.
3. Will you use it? If you won't, or can’t afford it, they're not worth it. See tips for safer shopping.
If you go online to House of Fraser* or into a store before Sun 8 Mar you will find up to £50 off selected women's bags and shoes. This offer is available on over 1,000 selected styles online including Ted Baker, Kurt Geiger and Steve Madden.
This is available while stocks last and stock will vary from store to store. Delivery's £3 but it is free if you collect in store or place an order over £50. House of Fraser has confirmed that this can be used alongside other offers or codes.
If you go online to House of Fraser* or into a store you will find up to £40 off selected women's boots, including 140 styles online from Bertie, Dune and Steve Madden.
This is available while stocks last and stock will vary from store to store. Delivery's £3 but it is free if you collect in store or place an order over £50. House of Fraser has confirmed that this can be used alongside any other offers or codes.
Go online to Cath Kidston* or into a store to get up up to 33% off in its mid-season sale. Delivery's £3.95 or free if you spend over £50.
Discounts we found on Mon 26 Mon including bags for £11 (were £16), card holders for £4 (were £6) and shoes for £16 (were £24). Cath Kidston says the sale is due to end on Wed 25 Mar, but could end sooner depending on stock levels.
Shop online at Argos* using the code HOME25 (delivery's £3.95 or reserve and collect in store free) or go into your local store and quote the code at the checkout to get 25% off homeware when you spend over £30.
Offer is available nationwide until 11.59pm on Sun 1 Mar. It’s valid on bedding, lighting, home furnishings, cooking, dining and kitchen equipment only.
Go online to John Lewis* or to your nearest store, where it's matching an "unnamed competitor's promotion". We suspect (wink, wink) it's referring to the up to 25% off sale at Debenhams (this is what has happened in the past), so we expect it to be offering discounts on the same items.
The Debenhams* event is online and in stores until Sun 1 Mar and has up to 25% off items from all departments - but only 10% off beauty and fragrances. Delivery's £3.99 or collect from a store for free.
Are there good bargains to be had?
Bargains we found online at John Lewis on Tue 24 Feb include Warehouse dresses for £16 (were £20), men's Levi's 501 jeans for £68 (were £80) and Phase Eight jumpers for £40 (were £50).
On Thu 26 Feb, home and fashion retailer Laura Ashley* is launching a 30% off sale online and in its stores. Plus, for the first 12 hours of the promotion, you can get an extra 10% off if you shop in a store.
30% off + extra 10% off in stores
From 9am-9pm on Thu 26 Feb only, you can go to your nearest Laura Ashley store and get 30% off almost all items, plus an extra 10% off (extra discount off the 30% off price). Both discounts will be applied automatically at the till. After this time period, the 30% off offer will continue until Sun 1 Mar, but you won't get the extra 10% off.
30% off only online
From 9am on Thu 26 Feb, you can also go online to Laura Ashley* and get the 30% off, but you won't get the extra 10% off. The discount will be applied automatically at the checkout. The offer ends on Sun 1 Mar.
Delivery is £4.50 if you order online (free delivery on furniture and upholstery), but you can collect from a store for free.
It doesn't include items from the Laura Ashley Outlets, sale items, Guardsman protector, design service fee, licensed products, gift cards and delivery charges. Can't be used with other offers.
If you go online to fashion retailer Urban Outfitters* before 11.59pm on Tue 3 Mar and use the code JEANS10, you'll get £10 off a pair off selected women's jeans - there's 49 styles of jeans to choose from and you'll get £10 off each pair you buy.
This can't be used on sale items and can't be used with any other offers. Delivery's £3.99.
Go online to Ugg Australia* to get up to 50% off its classic sheepskin boots, while stocks last. Delivery's free on all orders. These boots are likely to sell out quickly so if there's something you're after, go quick.
We spotted these on Mon 16 Feb :
If you're looking for a different style, a number of other retailers also have Ugg boots on sale. Here are our top finds on Mon 16 Feb:
Go online to Ted Baker* (delivery's £4.50 or collect in-store for free) or to your nearest store and you'll get up to 50% off a selection of men's and women's clothes and accessories while stocks last.
Bargains we found include women's dresses for £55 (were £129), men's tops for £20 (were £45) and wash bags for £14 (were £27).
Shop online at Reiss* (delivery's £3.95 or collect in-store for free) or at your nearest store while stocks last. The sale includes mainly items from the current season.
Although the sale is being advertised as up to 50% if you have a nosey around you can bag some bargains with even bigger reductions. Bargains we found include men's shirts for £29 (were £69), women's dresses for £40 (were £110) and women's court shoes for £49 (were £139).
Urban Outfitters* is offering up to 75% off selected sale items including clothes, shoes and accessories in stores and online while stocks last. Delivery's £3.99.
Bargains we've found include mesh shirts for £5 (were £45), jumpsuits for £5 (were £55) and dresses for £10 (were £49).
Topshop is offering up to 70% off selected clothes, shoes and accessories in stores and online while stocks last.
Bargains we've found include bralets for £5 (were £22), denim shorts for £5 (were £30) and dresses for £10 (were £40).
Shop online at Oasis* (delivery's £3.99) or at your nearest store while stocks last to get 30% off spring trends. This promotion includes items from the spring collection which is why this is different from the up to 70% off sale.
Bargains we found on Wed 18 Feb include real leather bags for £17.50 (were £25), cami vests for £15.40 (were £22) and kimonos for £28 (were £40).
Items will be clearly marked in stores with a 30% off tag.
To cover the cost of delivery, you'd need to spend £40+ with the code. Otherwise buying in store's cheaper.
Go online to Miss Selfridge* (delivery's £3.95 or collect in-store for free) while stocks last to get up to 70% off items from the current and previous season.
Bargains we found include peplum dresses for £5 (were £35), kimonos for £10 (were £39) and faux fur headbands for £3 (were £16).
Each point's worth 1p when redeemed on virtually any Boots-branded product in-store at Boots, so this is effectively a 10% discount on Boots branded items. Don't assume Boots is always cheapest though, if you can buy items 10%+ cheaper elsewhere, go there instead. See full Boost Loyalty Points guide for more Boots tips.
Our Local eBay Deals Mapper lets you find bargains if you're prepared to pick them up. eBay sellers often specify items must be collected in person which means fewer bids.
But you can't normally search 'collection only' so put your postcode in and how far you're prepared to schlep and watch the gems pop up.
Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!
