Get the most out of mid-season sales on the high street with our cash-saving tips



Mid-season reductions are more common, as shops want to ditch current stock to make way for  summer gear. But these shops usually just spring these sales on us, making it difficult to tell when you should or should not buy an item.
Shops usually just spring mid-season sales on us, but we’ve got tips to help you predict when they’re about to happen
Savvy Savers should follow my tips . . .

Words of wisdom: Some stores will have special number or word codes on the price tag above or below the item. Some money-saving bloggers have suggested that at Home Bargains, the word “REG” means the item will be restocked once it has sold out but the word “ONE” means it’s a one-off or limited offer.
Sticker savvy: Already thrifty? You will know about yellow stickers, however these exist outside supermarkets, too. For example, TK Maxx already has top discounts, especially if you are willing to spend time rifling through the rails. It usually adds a red sticker to labels to indicate a big discount, but I’ve also seen a yellow sticker on some goods which indicates the biggest discount.
Pencil in  savings: The day before big sales, discounts are often pencilled on to labels. Next tends to do this still and numbers can indicate the price or percentage discount. So, if you spot something handwritten, that could reveal it is about to go into sale.
Go compare: Use your phone to check if the item you want is  cheaper elsewhere or   on the brand’s website. In the past, I have found H&M items in the sale on the website, when full price in store. Pricerunner.com and kelkoo.co.uk are great for comparisons. Also, check if you can get  cashback on purchases by uploading your receipt. Topcashback.co.uk is running  offers on  retailers such as Debenhams and Topshop.

PRICES correct at time of going to press. Deals and offers subject to availability.
