With Black Friday in the rear view mirror and your eyes firmly locked on Christmas, how can you find the best Christmas bargains when you’re already overwhelmed and there’s only two weeks left to the finish line? Don’t panic, we’re here to help!
1. Let someone else do the work for you
Keeping up with the best deals offered by hundreds of retailers and service providers across the UK is almost impossible and also exhausting! So why not let the experts do the work for you this year?
If you want to offer an experience gift, check out Groupon for a look at the latest deals on everything from gym memberships to afternoon tea at Kensington Palace to spa treatments for two.
Want to get an even bigger deal? Check out Flubit and request a lower price on an item you want. In a few simple steps, you get a new private price offer. It’s that simple.
Just a few clicks and you’re on your way to great savings.
2. Sign up to receive your favourite shop’s newsletter
Today, most retailers, including Currys or House of Fraser, offer the option of signing up to receive a newsletter filled with the latest trends, special invitations to events, and promotions. No more need to go out of your way to search for deals. Sign up and be the first to get your hands on the most coveted items on everyone’s Christmas list.
Just let your favourite retailers put their best foot forward while you sit back and relax with a cuppa.
3. Trust your fellow shoppers
Don’t trust marketers? No worries. You can trust your fellow consumers. Some websites like HUKD provide shoppers like you with a place to exchange information and tips about getting the latest deals and voucher codes. You can rate the deals on a scale from ‘cold’ to ‘hot’ and because it’s a user forum, you can leave comments. For that added personal touch.

Many retailers have member rewards programmes. By picking up and registering for a Debenhams’ Beauty Club card for example, you can collect points and earn rewards and have access to special offers that are only available to card holders such as exclusive offers, gifts and free makeovers. Whatever programme you choose, loyalty cards allow you to stay on top of the best deals at Christmas and throughout the year and give you access to some great advantages.
