January sales quick links

Happy New Year, reader and thanks for dropping by to check out our roundup of the very best deals in the January sales 2019. A few stores launched sales straight after Christmas, with not many holding back for the traditional January sales, so we’ve had plenty of time to dig through the best offers. But of course, we’ve added some brand new ones today too as we start our daily deals coverage with a bang in 2019.

After all, you’re probably back at work soon, so don’t be daft getting involved with those horrible queues at retail park car parks or looking for the non-event deals on the highstreet. Online’s where the best bargains to be had – just like Black Friday. And we’ll save you the time of trawling through loads of different online stores trying to spot the bargains. We’ve got our eye on prices all year round, so we know a good deal when we see one.

So sit back, scroll down a little and you’ll see we’ve listed the best offers of the day so far. We’ll update this page throughout the day and tomorrow too, as some of these deals may go on for a few days – although if you see something you like today, don’t bank on it being around tomorrow, just to be safe.

PS4 Pro | Red Dead Redemption 2 | £349.99 at Very
This isn’t a special edition console, but given many stores seem to be charging £350 for the console alone and Red Dead Redemption 2 will still cost close to £50 a long time after launch, this is a great money saver. This game looks incredible on the Pro too.

TV

Hisense H43A6250UK 43-inch HDR 4K TV | Now £329 at Argos
This is a new model from Hisense and the reviews have been strong too. You’re getting a 4K screen with HDR features, which is great news for gamers with a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X. Movie/TV fans can enjoy the same high quality visuals via the built-in Netflix and Amazon Prime apps.
View Deal

Hisense H50A6250UK 50-inch 4K HDR TV | Now £369 at Argos
This is a fantastic day for cheap TV sales in the 50-inch category and this 4K HDR model is making a strong argument for the best of the lot. What makes this one stand out from the similar Argos TV deals you ask? How about a very reassuring three-year warranty? If this deal sell out, there’s a nigh-on identical, slightly older, Hisense TV for the £349 (but without the extended warranty).

Samsung UE55NU7100 55-inch HDR 4K TV | Now £469 at Amazon

View Deal

Hisense H55U7AUK 55-inch 4K HDR TV | Now £538.99 at Amazon
This is a fantastic 4K HDR model from Hisense. It has a centre stand instead of feet on the sides too, which is much better for smaller TV cabinets or tables when buying a smart TV this large. The massive £260 discount is the big selling point today though.
View Deal

Samsung UE49NU7670 49-inch curved 4K TV | Now £549 at Currys
Save £200 today! If you’re able to arrange to mainly view hem head-on, curved TVs are an excellent pick for your living room – the colours tend to fade a little when viewed at too narrow an angle from the sides. We’re loving the dramatic discount on this Samsung model from Currys today, but it won’t last long at this price.

Sony Bravia KD55AF8BU 55-inch OLED 4K HDR TV | Now £1798 at Currys

View Deal

Techwood 65AO6USB 65-inch 4K TV | £499 at AO
If you really want a massive, but cheap TV, then Techwood could be the brand for you today. This smart 4K TV lacks HDR, but given the super low price, we can let that slide. Under £500 for a 65-inch TV? What a January sales deal!
View Deal

View Deal

HP Chromebook 11 £170 at Amazon
If you’re after one of the cheapest Chromebooks around to try out saying goodbye to Windows, then this 11-inch model is worth a look. 4GB of RAM is enough for very basic work activities, although the 16GB of storage is a bit rubbish. There is free access to 100GB of online storage though to make storing your files online super easy.

Mobile phones

Huawei Mate 20 Pro | O2 | £69 upfront | 50GB 100GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £45pm
Here we have it, the best deal on the Mate 20 Pro right now. Not only do you pay a tiny upfront fee and very little monthly but you also get an absolutely massive 100GB of data. That should be more than plenty for most people and will allow for hours of streaming and general internet use.
View Deal

iPhone XS  | O2 | £159 Upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 50GB 100GB data | £55pm
No XS deal comes near to this. The upfront fee is reasonable compared to most other deals (which is a miracle when it comes to the XS) and just £55 a month is very reasonable for what is one of the most expensive phones on the market right now, not to mention you’re getting an absolutely massive 100GB of data – this really is the best deal on the XS right now.

Google Pixel 3 XL | O2 | £61.99 Upfront | Unlimited minutes and texts | 50GB 100GB data | £45pm
This is the best price we have seen on the Google Pixel 3 XL in 2019. For a massive 100GB of data you only have to pay £45 a month, that is an absolute bargain overall and looks closer to the kind of prices you would be paying on the regular-sized Google Pixel 3. View Deal

iPhone XR at Mobiles.co.uk | O2 | £125 upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £38pm
This is easily our favourite XR deal at the moment. It’s a brilliant balance between a reasonable upfront fee and monthly costs, with the latter coming in under the £40-mark. There’s no need to scrimp on data – 30GB each month will be plenty for most people.

Samsung Galaxy S9 from Mobiles.co.uk | O2 | £100 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 3GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £23pm
Bills under £25 a month and an upfront cost of just £100? That really is a bargain in our eyes. Yes, you only get 3GB of data but for this price that really shouldn’t matter. And you’re on O2 which means a whole host of priority rewards at your fingertips.

So who’s having a January sale?

All the big stores get stuck in. With so many keen shoppers going online over the Christmas period in recent years, it’s just too good a chance for them to finish 2018 off with some extra money in the bank and get 2019 off to a good start too. Let’s take a look at the big hitters below and what you can nab from each.

The Amazon January sale is a great place to start. Amazon has been on a discounting rampage since mid-November and it certainly won’t be slowing down any time soon. We usually get an early look at the deals a few days before so we can prep highlights of the best ones in advance and then tell you about them as soon as they go live. And seeing as Amazon has a lot of deals going on at once even on a quiet day, getting straight to the good ones will save you a lot of time browsing through tat.

Currys impressed us in the January sales last year (and more recently on Black Friday) with big discounts on TVs, laptops, gaming consoles, Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners, kitchen electricals and more so expect something similar this time around. Keep an eye out for the TV ads showing off the best ones too.

Very.co.uk has been a regular on our deals pages throughout the year and we expect it to have tempting offers on TVs, laptops and consoles once again along with other gadgets. Very is also a top fashion, home and beauty item retailer too so expect a wide gamut of deals.

AO is one of our go-to retailers when we’re scouring the net for cheap TV deals or laptop deals all year round. AO really specialises in home electrics though and it’s a fantastic time of year to upgrade with a new fridge, freezer, washing machine, kettle, microwave and the like.

John Lewis doesn’t really like sales, but it does like to nab customers from other retailers by offering a price match service. Why bother with the faff? Because John Lewis offers a two year guarantee on a huge selection of items at no extra charge, which is great for peace of mind when buying electrical items. Despite its disdain for sales, we saw JL unleash some sweet TV, laptop and electrical item deals on Black Friday and it’ll get involved again during this sales period.

Argos is one of those retailers who always seem to be having a sale. So it’ll be sure to a song and dance for the January sales. Annoyingly, much of its stock is region-based, but you can check availability by entering your postcode before going through the checkout process. Discounted prices on laptops, TVs, toys and console bundles are still well worth a look.

CDKeys.com is one of the cheapest places on the net for PC games all year round and offer fantastic prices followed by instant delivery of the code, with major platforms like Steam, uPlay, Origins and Battlenet supported. It’s not all about the PC crowd though as CDKeys have some of the best deals going on PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold memberships too.

The Zavvi January sales are usually worth a look, especially for film and TV fans. Zavvi has a huge range of exclusive steelbook editions of movies old and new too. Pop culture merchandise is a big seller there too.

Mobiles.co.uk is taking advantage of the growing trend to buy and upgrade phone contracts online rather than on the highstreet. This site offered the very best mobile phone deals back on Black Friday so you can expect more of the same from this trusted mobile phone seller – and we’ve seen a couple of great iPhone / Samsung Galaxy deals this year if you’re thinking of an upgrade.

When do the Boxing Day sales start?

Not a silly question at all. As we just said, a lot of stores are starting today and we expect even more will go live on Christmas Day – yes they’re pretty keen. If just before Christmas is the time to scramble for last-minute gifts, anytime from the day itself onwards is the chance to treat yourself or use those gift vouchers to make a great deal a truly spectacular bargain.

When do the January sales start?

Expect an early start here too. Although if we’re going off the last few years, the January sales haven’t been particularly special. It’s been all about the Boxing Day deals really, although we’re pleased to report some of the better ones stayed online a good few days into January. January sales are more of a continuation of the remaining Boxing Day sales so you can probably expect to see many stores simply rebrand the sales to ‘January sales’ the day after Boxing Day on December 27th. 

Given many workplaces are off until around January 2nd, retailers are keen to show you the best deals as soon as possible while you’ve got time off at home rather than try to push deals on you while you’re heading back to work or nursing that New Year’s Eve hangover.
