If you’re after January sales, check out our special Boxing Day & January Sales page. This is a detailed list of 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.
