Every year, The UK sees thousands of shops offer massive discounts in their instore and online sales. Major retailers such as Primark, New Look, River Island, Sports Direct and more have sales intermitently throughout the year. The best way to find out if a retailer has a sale on is by checking their website or visiting the store, it’s normally clearly advertised in the window. You’ll be able to save £100’s by shopping in the sales rather than paying full price for your goods. Clothing is one of the key lines you will find the sales, as soon as Summer is over the shops will reduce the t-shirts, shorts and flip-flops making it a perfect time to buy for next year. Home and garden shops like B&M, Homebase, B&Q etc will reduce the garden furniture, solar lights, benches, plants and everything garden related towards the end of summer too. At the end of winter you can visit shops and grab next years christmas bargains. Stock up on Wrap, Cards, Labels and even gifts ready for next year at a sale price. Whilst your sale shopping, you may be able to blag some freebies online and instore as well. We see retailers giveaway samples, extra items on a minimum spend and more. Free Stuff is always available online if you know the best place to look.
Supermarkets in the UK also have sales everyday if you know where to look. Everyday all of the major supermarkets like Aldi, Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys, Lidl and more will reduce the short dated fresh food at different times during the day. Later in the day will see a more significant reduction to clear the last of it. It’s always worth checking the reduced section in the dairy section and the produce section to see if you can bag youself a bargain. You will also find some supermarkets will giveaway freebies when they have too much, after christmas a lot of supermarkets will give away free vegetables to stop it going to waste such as brocolli, sprouts, parsnips etc. It’s always worth checking the grocery aisle for a reduced section where the stores sell dented or ripped items for a fraction of the price. When a tin of beans is dented or a packed of pasta gets ripped, the shops pop a bit of tape on and reduce it down. There is nothing wrong with them just because they have slight damage, the food is still perfect and will save you money.
Overall, It’s always worth keeping your eyes open for a whole range of different items across different types of shops, there is always a bargain to be had but you need to know where to look. Once you have found a bargain section, don’t go telling everyone as word will spread and your secret bargain shelf will be no more. If you spot a bargain in the sale then snap it up, take the sale sticker off and pretend you paid full price for it, if it’s a gift then wrap it up with the full price tag on and sale sticker firmly in the bin.
