Black Friday and January sales are where you'll see the most offers, but there's always discounts to be had and we're more than happy to do the legwork.
This month we've found deals on everything from TVs to mattresses, with savings of close to £170 in some cases.
We track prices throughout the year, so we can see when a deal is really worth it, or whether the retailer is simply pulling a fast one and not offering you a genuine saving.
Every product you see here has been through our test labs which reflect how you'll use them at home, so you can be sure you're getting a good product if we recommend it.
Each of the products we've picked out scored well in our tests, but you should check the reviews to make sure they are the right model for you.
We like: Good use of HDR, nice remote
We didn't like: SD footage is a bit drab
We were excited to test LG's more basic OLED range that costs far less than most OLED TVs. Prices are even better now that its 2022 successor the A2 has been released.
It was over £1,000 at launch and the price has fallen steadily to around the £700 mark, which is as cheap as we've seen it.
We like: Bright screen with punchy colours, comes with a stylus
We didn't like: Slippery back makes it hard to hold
The S8 was in danger of being overshadowed by its flasher siblings (the S8+ and S8 Ultra) but it has plenty going for it.
The smaller display still packs a punch with bright colours and even the cheapest model has a 128GB hard drive.
We like: Frost-free and full of useful features
We don’t like: Some parts are tricky to clean
This sleek, American-style fridge freezer has a cool stainless-steel finish that could help it take centre-stage in your kitchen.
It's packed full of useful features such as holiday mode, child lock and door alarms, as well as super-cool and fast-freeze settings.
Some retailers stock this fridge freezer at around £880, but you can currently get it for £750 from Argos.
We like: Easy to use
We don't like: Not great on low power settings
The IZ201UK is a cordless upright vacuum cleaner with Shark's Anti Hair Wrap floor head. You can use it on both hard floors and as a handheld cleaner for smaller jobs. The metal cleaning tube has a flexible hinge, which helps it to reach under furniture during cleaning. It's also handy for storage, as you can fold down the stick and squeeze it into a cupboard.
It comes with plenty of accessories: a dusting brush, upholstery brush, crevice nozzle and an anti-allergen dusting brush.
Recently this has been selling for around £249, but it's currently available for £229.
We like: Portable
We don’t like: Mediocre sound
The impressive battery life and comfortable weight (1.46kg) make this Acer ideal for slinging in your bag and carrying around. It's one to consider if you're after a basic but decent model.
It's currently available for £159.99 from John Lewis, and the retailer also throws in a two-year guarantee. This is currently £170 cheaper than buying it directly from Acer.
We like: Comfortable
We don’t like: Quite a bit of sound leaks to your surroundings
With the launch of the in October last year, the price of this second-generation model (which launched in 2019) has fallen, making it a good time to buy. The cheapest we can find them at this month is £109, which is about £10 less than their typical price.
We like: Arrives rolled up making it easier to get to the room of your choice, feels cold to lie on
We don't like: The cover isn't removable for washing
We've spotted this cheaper than average Silentnight double mattress on offer at Land of Beds for just £379, which is a good deal. Land of Beds says this offer price is a £260 saving on a RRP of £639. However, take this with a pinch of salt, as we've seen this mattress list at full price cheaper elsewhere.
While Silentnight markets this as a hybrid, thanks to its gel-infused top layer, we class it as a pocket sprung mattress due to the large 19cm core of pocket springs. It's sold as a medium firmness mattress and our independent testing agrees, ranking it as 5.4 on a scale from 1 (very firm) to 10 (very soft). It also comes with a 60-night guarantee, so you can exchange if it doesn't suit.
We like: Feature-packed cameras
We don’t like: No micro-SD card slot to expand on memory
This flagship phone from OnePlus' 2021 range comes with some exciting specifications. It's powered by a 4,500mAh battery and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with a large amount of Ram (8GB).

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