A lot of people don’t have two pennies to rub together after spending money on food, booze and Christmas presents and this time of year. But, for others, their Christmas shopping doesn’t begin until after Boxing Day, when they can put all their vouchers, gift cards and cash to good use.
If you are one of those people, AO.com is here for you. The retailer has a huge amount of items on sale (over 1,000!) so we’ve picked out some of the best deals as there’s no way we can list them all here.
If you want to peruse all the offers at your own pace head this way – and if you organise things from ‘Saving (£) High to Low’, you’ll see cookers, washing machines, fridges and other appliances have all had £100s knocked off the retail price.
One of the biggest savings we can find is a whopping £600 off this 70-inch Samsung 4K Ultra HD TV with HDR, which you can pick up for £699 (reduced from £1,299). And that also brings us nicely into a round-up of tech products we think Digital Spy readers will want to get their hands on.
Other TV savings and Hi-Fi Systems
If 70″ is too many inches for you, there are two 55-inch 4K LG models that have been reduced. There’s £421 off this OLED model, and £301 off a model with fancy NanoCell technology too.
If you want some epic sound to go with your TV (or just want to your walls to shake when you play your music), you can pick up the Sony High Power Hi-Fi System with Bluetooth for £449 (save £50) or the Sony Multiroom 2000 Watt High-res Audio Portable High Power Hi-Fi System with Bluetooth for £899 (save £100).
Whether you’ve got a new TV or an old one, you’ll want something to play on it. Two deals on the Xbox One S (the digital and disc version) stand out. Both deals include one month of Xbox Live Gold to play online, and one month of Game Pass, which lets you access a big library of games to download and play as long as you are subscribed.
The first deal for £179 includes the Xbox One S and the recently-released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a game that’s chock full of fan service and lightsaber combat that will teach you to fight like a true Jedi, as well as a month of EA Access that gives you even more games to try out.
The second deal is more expensive at £209 but the bundle features the one-month Xbox Game Pass and one-month Xbox Live Gold membership, as well as games Gears of War 5 and FIFA 20.
If you’re after a PlayStation 4 instead, there are deals on the more-powerful PlayStation 4 Pro model (games can perform better and/or in 4K). You can get a PS4 Pro console plus either Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or FIFA 20 for £279, and both bundles also include an extra Dualshock 4 controller too.
Smartphones (or as we call them nowadays, phones)
Obviously there are a million and one options for each phone, but this deal on the Samsung Galaxy S10E starts at a cool £33 a month with no upfront cost, while this Samsung Galaxy S10 offer comes with a free Galaxy Watch Active, so you get two tech gizmos at once.
For Apple fans, the iPhone XR starts at £36 a month while the iPhone 11 starts at £41 a month, and both come with one year of streaming service Apple TV+ for free.
If you like neither brand, the Huawei P30 Pro starts at £35 a month.
From smartphone to smart home now, and the Ring Video Doorbell V2 & Chime Pro Bundle has dropped from £229 to a very nice £149, saving you £80.
AO is also offering a Ring Floodlight Surveillance Camera and Video Doorbell V2 bundle for £129 off (now £299, reduced from £428), while Tado thermostats — one for your boiler and one for your radiator — can be picked up for £129 (save £40) and £59 (save £60) respectively.
Meanwhile, John Lewis recently launched its own 2019 sale, offering savings on Apple iPhones and NOW TV boxes.
