The High Street is set for a record breaking day as shoppers flock to bricks and mortar stores across the UK. But pundits are predicting that online shoppers are still predicted to take around 22% of these sales. This is 13% up on last year, meaning that retailers are pulling out all the stops to keep buyers at their keyboards.
This is great news for bargain hunters, as experts advise that the number and range of products could be the widest in the last 30 years. This is due to a number of factors, the fact that the public are keen bargain hunters and the unseasonably mild weather.
So which sites are offering the best deals? It is worth remembering that auction sites such as eBay and Etsy, which have individual sellers, may not offer discounts from all these sellers. What some are doing however is delivering a ‘Daily Deals’ option of items reduced from leading sellers.
Likewise with Amazon, it is gathering all its sellers that are offering discounted goods together into its ‘Boxing Day Deals Week’. This means that you can browse for bargains under different categories.
