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.
From 9am, Thu 21 Aug, spend £50 or more on lingerie, hosiery and women's nightwear online at M&S* and you can get a free £88 beauty box. You'll need to add the beauty box* to your basket and the price will be removed when you reach the checkout. You can also get the offer in-store.
The offer's available until Mon 25 Aug, but there are only 14,000 beauty boxes available online, so don't hang around if you want one. Delivery's free.
All the products in the box are sold by M&S, but not all in the same sizes as they'll be in the box, so we don't have an exact price for all the products individually. However, we've worked out prices based on the sizes M&S does sell and found the items would come to about £88.
The items included in the box are:
Shop in-store at larger Sainsbury's* stores which sell its Tu clothing range and get 25% off all items until Mon 25 Aug. The sale includes men's, women's and kids' clothing (including already-reduced items) plus school uniforms.
As we predicted last week, Next* launched its mid-season sale on Sat 19 Jul with 50% off online and in-store while stocks last.

Right, let's be frank. £700 posh handbags are not cheap. They're not MoneySaving. This is definitely not a typical MSE deal.
Yet... if you're going to buy one anyway, you might as well get it while there's a decent discount.
Mulberry is having an up to 50%-off sale in-store and online, which doesn't happen very often - the last one was in January. It includes the much sought-after Alexa and Bayswater bags, though you may have to go in-store as stock's selling out fast online.
Remember Martin's Money Mantras. Ask yourself: "Can I afford it? Will I use it? Is it worth it?"
If the answer to any of these is no, DON'T BUY IT.
If you've passed those hurdles, then the sale includes women's and men's bags, accessories, shoes and clothing. Delivery costs £8.

It's said that December is 'engagement month'. So you may be sporting some new bling or have a diamond-shaped dent in your wallet.
With engagements come weddings (spoiler alert: they don't come cheap) - see our 50 Cheap Wedding Tips guide. We've spotted some heavily reduced dresses suitable for bridesmaids which will hopefully help you save some cash on the big day or at least get you an extra Margarita or two on your honeymoon. These dresses would also be good if you have a fancy do to go to.
Our top pick 'bridesmaid' dresses from £20
There's a huge selection of reduced dresses* (it's best to search by size). The sale ends Sun 26 Jan, but stock's going fast and we reckon they'll be gone by then.
Below are some of the bargains before using the code:
Delivery's £3.99 or you can collect in-store for free.
To hone in on the best bargains, use the Regatta outlet tool. Tell it what you want, the price and the discount, and it'll find it for you. To see a selection of the winter coats above, use the search word 'jacket'.
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 new 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!
