Best deals in the March sales revealed by Which?

The best deals we’ve spotted this month cover some great discounts on tech – including a Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Platinum tablet, the Motorola Edge smartphone and Apple AirPods. Plus home and garden appliances ranging from fridge freezers to washing machines to lawnmowers. So now could be a good time to buy.

Our experts track prices throughout the year (not just when the sales are on). This means we’re able to cut through the retailers’ spin and only bring you the deals we consider to be genuinely good value.

All of the deals we’ve included in our March round-up cover products that have made the journey to the Which? test lab. As our lab tests are objective and reflect how you would use these products in real life, you can trust our reviews are accurate.

Even though all of the deals listed here show products that scored well in our tests, the best way to see if a product is right for you is to check in with our expert reviews before you buy.

Best mobile phone deal

Motorola Edge – £400

 

  • We like: Easy to use, 5G ready
  • We didn’t like: Takes a while to charge

The Motorola Edge has a large 6.7-inch Full HD+ display, four rear cameras and one at the front, and is one of Motorola’s most expensive handsets. But for this month, we’ve found where you can get the Edge for £150 below its list price.

Best TV deal

LG OLED55BX6LB – £999

LG OLED55BX6LB
  • We like: Impressive operating system
  • We didn’t like: Missing several catch-up apps

OLEDs don’t get much cheaper than this – this 55-inch 4K LG TV is one of the few models available for less than £1,000. It doesn’t have the same processor as pricier LG TVs, though.

Read our full LG OLED55BX6LB review, or buy it now from Currys.

A recent Which? investigation into Currys PC World suggests the firm has an issue with how it handles complaints about faulty products. So do consider this before making a purchase.

Best headphones deal

Apple AirPods – £119

 

 

  • We like: Easy to use, completely wireless
  • We didn’t like: Leak quite a lot of sound, fairly loose fit

The truly wireless Apple AirPods are iOS and Android device compatible. Although some features are iOS only, like checking the battery levels and automatically pausing when you take them out of your ears. Apple claims you’ll get five hours of battery life, rising to 24 hours with top-ups from the charging case – our review reveals how long these AirPods lasted in our continuous play test.

March sales shopping tips

Check the Which? website

As well as finding you the best deals this March, we’ve also put together a list of the best and worst shops.

We’ve quizzed thousands of Which? members on their experiences of shopping in some of the country’s best-known stores and websites, as well as with lesser-known brands.

After crunching the numbers, we can reveal which retailers score highly for product quality, range and value for money. To see which retailers impressed in our latest shopping survey, head over to our extensive guide on the best and worst shops.

Watch out for sneaky tricks

Some retailers use underhand tactics to pressure you into making a purchase.

These include anchor pricing (when products are on sale more often than they aren’t), pressure selling (’30 people are viewing this right now!’) and dubious claims about the ‘before’ price of a product.

If you’re unsure how good a deal is, use a tool such as PriceRunner to compare prices across retailers.

Research customer reviews

It’s always a good idea to read reviews before you buy a product, but not all reviews are trustworthy.

Some sellers incentivise people to post fake positive reviews to drown out genuine negative ones. If you’re in any doubt, check out our expert guide on how to spot a fake review.

Returning goods

Whether you bought a product in-store or online, you still have rights under the Consumer Contract Regulations.

The regulations give you a 14-day window to return a non-faulty product, which begins on the day you receive your goods. Many retailers will give you longer than this, but it is always best to check before you buy.

We’ve put together advice on the additional rights you have when shopping online in our online returns guide.
