The biggest sales happen around the same time each year. Check the dates below as if one if coming up it might be best to hold on.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday

xxx go big on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and usually release a voucher code to get 30% off everything. This is double the normal student discount so is really worth waiting for.

Boxing Day & January Sales

There are some big sales on around Christmas. Usually they start a couple of days before the 25th, then on Boxing Day there are further reductions and even bigger ones nearer New Year and January.

We recommend that if there is something you want then get it as soon as it’s in the sale as it might sell out.

Spring Mid-season & Easter Sales

Around mid March xxx have a mid-season sale and also something for Easter too.

We’ve found that they have a good 50% sale on selected items, and then add additional discounts of 20% on sale items so you can get up to 70% off. This is one of THE best times for students to bag a bargain.
