Shop around for deals

While the Amazon and Comet deals can look tempting, it's always important to compare prices before buying.

Which retail expert Matt Clear said: 'Some of these deals aren't nearly as good as Amazon and Comet would have you believe. 

'We've spotted some items that are cheaper elsewhere, proving that it's always worth shopping around to make sure you getting the best price, even when an item is on sale.'
