But before you splash out, it’s worth shopping around as you may be able to find cheaper prices elsewhere.
Google’s price comparison tool, Google Shopping, is free and easy to use, plus sites like Idealo and Pricespy will let you know if you can get the same product for less.
Here are our top picks for the bank holiday weekend.
B&M – up to 10% off
This velvet chair is £90, down from £100, in the B&M sale
The discounter doesn’t offer a home delivery service so you’ll need to head to your nearest branch to get your hands on the offers.
Here are some of the best bargains we’ve spotted:
- Dreamcom Superior Memory Foam Mattress. Was: £250. Now: £225. Save: £25 (10%) – buy now

How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that’ll check prices for you – so don’t be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
Very – up to 57%
Very has slashed prices over the bank holiday weekend
Very shoppers can bag discounted HD TVs, Airpods and vacuum cleaners in the retailer’s bank holiday sale.
The discount event, which also includes sofas and kitchen appliances, is already available and will run until May 6.
While there are some massive savings to be had, you’ll have to factor in the extra £3.99 that Very charges for standard delivery on orders under £30, otherwise it’s free.
Here’s what’s on offer:
- Cuba two seater sofa. Was: £529, Now: £319. Save: £210 (40%) – buy now
- Tassimo pod coffee machine. Was: £89.99. Now: £39. Save: £50.99 (57%) – buy now

Boots – up to 70%
Boots is including this L’Oreal gift set in its 70% off clearance sale
Boots finally launched its up to 70% off sale this week, three months later than normal.
The discount buys are only available in store though so you won’t be able to get them with online orders.
Plus, they’re only available as long as stocks last so it’s best to be quick if you want to get your hands on any.
