UK Sales Bank Holiday Monday, Discounts List Update and Buying Tips

Personal_Finance / Money Saving Dec 27, 2010 - 12:06 AM GMT

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSALES - 27th DEC 2010 UPDATE - The worst weather for decades coupled with economic austerity and the January 4th VAT hike from 17.5% to 20%, set the scene for shoppers to enjoy deep discounts in the annual sales with many distressed retailers making deep discounts of at least 50% and as much as 75%.


UK Christmas & New Year Holiday Sales 2010

Many retailers did not even wait for Christmas and started their sales early with discounts typically of up to 50%, that on boxing day escalated to 75% as the sales season progresses so as to get rid of old stock ahead of the January 4th VAT tax hike. Additionally, to lubricate the sales seasonal many credit card firms have been liberally stuffing household letterboxes with offers of 0% on purchases for 6-12 months that many borrowers may come to regret utilising as the interest charges start to accrue during 2011.

SALES Tips

  • The biggest reductions come towards the end of the sales season, i.e. Christmas stock can go from 33% off to 50% off to 70% off to 80% off over a week after Christmas.
  • Use a cash back credit card such as Egg or Capital One Circle to earn cash back.
  • Compare high street prices against the internet before buying, remember internet retailers have far lower overheads so usually cannot be beaten. Though only stick to recognised online retailer to avoid being scammed or sold fakes.
  • Make a list of items that you need to prevent buying junk.
  • Look for discount vouchers in newspapers.
  • Set yourself a budget and don't go over it.
  • Don't get into debt, there is no point in saving 25% on the sales and then paying 25% interest on purchases during 2011.. and beyond!

US Dollar Bull market

Think you need to revise your dollar forecast Nad.

Your original analysis was probably right on?

If the Dollar rallies next week with earnings, and the dynamic becomes dow up dollar up. then we gotta go long.

Once again, great work. Still dont get how you manage to forecast CPI and GDP and so on so accurately, but kudos.
