Deal hunting tips - how to make sure you're getting the best deal
The most important thing to do when considering whether something is a good deal is to ask yourself: “Would I still want and buy this if it was full price?” Often the answer may be no, which means you need to think whether you’re saving money with a discount, or wasting it caught up in the excitement of a sale.
A deal for one person won’t be a deal for someone else, no matter how many times Amazon, Argos or John Lewis might tell you otherwise. We are checking the prices of deals all year round and will give you expert advice about whether or not the deals we've found are genuinely good and worth buying, or whether we've seen them cheaper in the past.
It isn’t unusual (or difficult, or illegal) for some retailers to put prices up during deal seasons. Yes, that’s right - sometimes discount prices during the holiday season are higher compared to the rest of the year because dishonest retailers know they will get more page views from people ready to click buy.
Will there be better deals on Boxing Day 2020?
Boxing Day is always the day after Christmas, which means this year it falls on Saturday 26 December. While most of the heaviest discounts take place over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period, you might still be able to find end-of-year discounts on tech on Boxing Day itself. We wouldn't recommend waiting until then. If you spot a great discount now, snap it up!
You don't want to have to deal with delivery delays and late arrivals. Plus, with most retailers offering extended returns, you can always return something you bought and request a refund and pick up the same item at a lower price if you spot a deal.
We're covering everything there is to know about Boxing Day, including all the major retailers offering extended returns.
