We’ve trawled through the latest deals so you don’t have to. The best deals in June include big discounts on tech and electricals, plus kitchen and home appliances. So if you’re after a new iPhone, AirPods, laptop, mattress or fridge freezer, 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 June 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
Apple iPhone 12 – £699
- We like: Lovely display, easy to use
- We didn’t like: Battery takes a while to charge
We’ve spotted that the current cheapest deal for a SIM-free version of the iPhone 12 with 64GB of storage is £699.
It’s rare to find a discount on an Apple iPhone, especially a recent model such as this.
For your money, you get 5G capability and an improved screen over the iPhone 11. It’s also waterproof up to 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes – worth knowing if you’ve ever killed off a phone by dropping it in water.
Best tablet deal
Amazon Fire HD 10 – £95
- We like: Easy to use
- We didn’t like: Smaller selection of apps
This budget tablet runs Amazon’s own version of the Android operating system, called Fire OS. It differs from Android in terms of its user interface, plus it has a smaller selection of apps available.
The standard price for this tablet is £150, but at the moment Amazon is selling it for just £95.
Best mattress deal
Emma The Original mattress – £420
- We like: Can be used on most bed bases, not too warm to lie on, 200-night trial, doesn’t need to be turned
- We didn’t like: Only available online
Emma The Original is one of the most popular mattresses on our website, and the deal we’ve spotted for June is 40% off. This brings the cost down to £419.40 from £699.
You’ll need to use code ORIGINALDAYS40 to get the lower price, though.
Best headphone deal
Apple AirPods Pro – £179
- We like: Water resistant, offers wireless charging
- We didn’t like: Limited functionality on Android devices, no equaliser to adjust sound preferences
Compared to the standard Apple AirPods, these Apple AirProd Pro buds are larger and the stem that pokes out of your ears is shorter. This makes them look more discreet.
Truly wireless, they also have active noise cancelling. Plus they’re water resistant.
Normally selling for around £215 in the main high-street retailers, this £179 deal is a very good one.
Best laptop deal
Acer Swift 3 SF314-42 – £599
- We like: Thin and light
- We didn’t like: Keyboard could be improved
This mid-range laptop has a six-core AMD Ryzen 5 processor with a large 1TB of storage capacity.
At 1.23kg with a Full HD 14-inch screen, it’s light and strikes a good balance between portability and screen size.
Currys PC World is currently offering it with a £100 discount, which is a great deal.
(A 2020 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 wireless speaker deal
Kitsound Diggit 55 – £30
- We like: Detachable stake for use in your garden
- We didn’t like: Need to switch to outdoors mode for higher maximum volume
If you want your Bluetooth speaker for use indoors or outdoors, this water resistant and dustproof model could be for you.
It’s easy to use. Plus the buttons are nice and large and easy to press. You can also connect two together, for stereo sound.
A £10 discount this month represents a significant saving.
Best washing machine deal
Bosch WAU28S80GB – £499
- We like: Easy to use
- We didn’t like: Not very energy efficient
The Bosch WAU28S80GB is a middle-of-the range, freestanding washing machine with an 8kg capacity.
It was originally £629, but prices have been falling over recent months and it’s now the cheapest we’ve seen it at £499.
Best fridge freezer deal
Fridgemaster MS91518FBS – £449
- We like: Huge capacity
- We didn’t like: Could be more energy efficient
This large American-style fridge freezer can hold around 20 bags of shopping, so this is a roomy model that should be big enough for even the largest appetites.
Normally selling for around £520, the price has been falling over in recent months – currently at £449, it’s the lowest we’ve seen it.
June sales shopping tips
Check the Which? website
As well as finding you the best deals this June, 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.
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.
