We bought some new towels but only because we were passing John Lewis and they weren't on offer.

Me as well. Still spent some time looking online though, there was just nothing that I felt I convinced to have.

I'd have gone for a half-price Macbook Pro though, but Apple weren't playing No resellers either, which I guess is because Apple forces huge prices on them.

So did anyone bag any bargains? Early Xmas pressies?

I got the following

1. Estee Lauder set 'worth £339' for £58. Never worth that but that's the missus' xmas sorted. Perhaps should have been posted in that other thread.

The Makeup Artist Collection * | Estée Lauder UK Official Site

2. Halfords Advanced screwdriver set. Normally £15, reduced to £7 but was £5.95 yesterday and will remain at this price until Monday. Lifetime guarantee on these

Halfords Advanced 8 piece Screwdriv...

3. Philips Wireless Headphones, reduced from £70 to £35 plus another £10 off Quidco. Another Xmas pressie sorted.

4. Tekton 1/2 drive torque wrench. Having broke my last one, this was a lightning deal on Amazon, reduced from £67 to £19.99. Arrived today, absolute bargain, this thing is HUGE and very heavy. Not your usual cheap budget wrench, it is quite a bit bigger and seems very well made.

A set of wheels for my girl !:-)

I queued up for hours with lots of other people from 2 in the morning.

Once we got in, it was like a Tsunami of humans washing through Asda.

I got arrested 3 times after beating up numerous scrotes and fighting over the merchandise.

It was worth it though - got a £200 Polaroid TV for £50!

[who'sthewinnernow]Should be able to get at least £30 on the bay...[/who'sthewinnernow]

Nothing.

Logged on to a few sites now and again but couldn't see anything that I needed/wanted that had any sort of serious discount.

Fair enough.

I did see some seriously discounted PS4 bundles - I just don't need one as I paid full price for the boy's one last XMAS.....

Can make a lot of money in the sales by buying on demand and selling on, but that takes effort and going to the stores so I didn't do it this year

Now I've got an extra £600 to splash on the kids. The Xbox was for my sons present, tv and soundbar for me

The PS4's were literally being given away at some places which sold out fast, there was one 1tb bundle for £120 with two great games!!

I was very tempted but the new consoles coming out far surpass them so I'm holding out, another reason I haven't upgraded to the one-S yet from my Xbox one

I believe in January the high end tv's will be heavily discounted again as 2017 has some really nice models being released which make 4K look overrated, would be the time to upgrade a tv which comes with the external future proof box which can be updated
