If you're reading this, chances are you somehow miraculously survived the Black Friday sales on 28th November. The tradition generally sees high street and online retailers unleashing huge discounts on the public the day after Thanksgiving, in a bid to make them go into a shopping frenzy in the run up to Christmas.
More recently, the tradition has since spawned Cyber Monday – the Monday following Black Friday which sees prices being slashed even more for the internet.
Of course, both of these dates have now passed and many shoppers have missed out. But that's not to say that there are not still a wealth of deals available. When it comes to pre-Christmas sales, it's all about the three As, and one special little B too.
This little online beauty scored one of its best records to date this year, when it managed to rack up 5.5 million sales on the aforementioned Black Friday. It's the gift that keeps on giving however, and is currently offering customers 'Lightning Deals' which they have to grab quick, but it is certainly more than worth it. They also offer their own Christmas gift guide.
Though they may have just released the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple iWatch, Apple are still keen on offering their customers deals in the run up to Christmas. In particular, if you're not fussed about getting the latest model, you can head over to the refurbished gifts page, where slightly older models of your favourite gadgets come good as new.
As a supermarket chain, Walmart's Asda is no stranger to offering outstanding discounts to customers, whether you're looking for a last minute Christmas turkey or even a few gifts. In particular, buying in bulk is recommended with Asda – for example, at the moment the store is offering three annuals for £10, covering all topics from Star Wars to One Direction – perfect for the little ones in your life.
Christmas might be the occasion on everybody's mind, but we can also look forward to the New Year and think about some home improvement projects. With that in mind, Bedstar has a variety of sales on products to help give your bedroom a little TLC, from duvets to bed frames, headboards and even lampshades, so you've no excuse not to go all out this Christmas.
