Here’s a list of bargains we’ve spotted in the online sales you can buy now
Some are already offering big bargains online and will be having sales in stores to get customers spending after missing out on crucial pre-Christmas and Easter trade.
UK sales are now down £27billion in lost sales caused by lockdown, according to British Retail Consortium figures.
Many brands have gone bust with thousands of jobs axed or put at risk.
There will also be notable absences including Arcadia stores like Topshop, Topman and Miss Selfridges, which will leave a major hole in high streets upon and down the country.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that’ll check prices for you – so don’t be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
Brits have been warned not to expect Black Friday or Boxing Day sales-style offers – since stores have done record levels of home deliveries and most have been open for click and collect.
However, some stores are rolling out massive discounts.
Debenhams, which is due to close for good after going bust, will open around 100 stores in England and Wales for two to four weeks from Monday to complete its final closing down sale with deals of up to 70% off.
Which shops are having sales?
A NUMBER of high street favourites are having big sales in stores when they reopen on April 12.
While not every shop is planning a clearance in stores, many are still trying to shift stock on their websites.
Here’s the bargains that are online now – and the in store clearances to look out on Monday:
- The shop is reopening stores in England and Wales from Monday to clear stock before shutting stores for good.
- There will be sales up to 70% off on fashion and homeware
- If you don’t fancy shopping in store, you can still get up to 70% off in its online clearance
- Next has launched a massive sale online, and we’ve spotted nearly 70% off clothes, homeware and more
- All products that don’t sell out in the online sale will be available in stores – but this will vary by shop
Currys PC World
