The January sales have already begun, and now is the best time of the year to bag a bargain.
The January sales used to start in January, but the last few years retailers have brought the big sale forward, starting immediately after Boxing Day. We've rounded up the best offers below.
In the past, the January sales have often been synonymous with queues of people standing in line at high street shops in the early hours of the morning, but this year is looking a little different as the event takes place mostly online.
What's more, the online deals are set to be bigger than ever this year, as the coronavirus lockdown measures have inspired a surge in online shoppers, shopping from the comfort and safety of their homes.
So, here are the best Boxing Day and January sales of 2020.

When do the Boxing Day sales start?
While Boxing Day sales traditionally begin Boxing Day, in recent years many retailers start their sales up to a week earlier, and many of the sales run through to January.
The Boxing Day and January sales are the last of the year, as the next big sale event isn't until Amazon Prime Day, traditionally held in the summer, and Black Friday in November.
How to get the best Boxing Day deals
Think ahead about what you need, or what you've had your eye on – maybe your perfume is running low, maybe you're in need of a new coat, pair of leggings or jeans, or maybe you'd like to treat yourself to some home gym equipment and activewear to jump start a January detox. Whatever it is that you want, shop around in advance so that you can recognise a good offer when you see one on Boxing Day, as you'll be able to compare the new offer against the original prices.
Tips for Boxing Day sales shopping online
For big sites such as Amazon and John Lewis & Partners, it's recommended to create an account in advance, making buying items a more seamless process as your address and delivery details will already be saved.
We’d also recommend signing up for an Amazon Prime membership, costing £7.99 a month, which offers same day and next day delivery on selected products. Amazon also offers a free 30 day trial for Prime, so you could sign up before Boxing Day and cancel after making the most of the sale, without being charged.
Boxing Day Opening Times
This year, many stores have said they will remain closed on Boxing Day (including John Lewis, Wickes, Homebase and Marks and Spencer).
Opening times will vary between different branches for each brand, so we recommend checking Google for their updated holiday dates opening times.
