BLACK Friday sales are continuing over the weekend, with plenty of deals at retailers including Boots, Currys PC World and John Lewis.
We round up ten of the best bargains to be had ahead of Cyber Monday tomorrow, November 30.
Shoppers were anticipated to spend £2million-a-minute this Black Friday as bargain hunters queued to get onto websites like Boots and Cult Beauty.
Meanwhile, a PayPal outage on Friday saw customers in the UK and US unable to access accounts or make payments.
It comes as many non-essential stores in England were shut over Black Friday prompting experts to predict a huge spike in web demand – 70% bigger than last year.
But Black Friday is far from over, with deals still going on over the weekend ahead of Cyber Monday.
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.
Remember, just because items are in a Black Friday sale, doesn't mean you can't find them, or something similar, cheaper elsewhere.
Always shop around before spending your money – we explain how to compare prices in the box above.
