Bank holiday sales: Save cash this weekend with our pick of the best deals

The late May bank holiday is here, and so are a bunch of great bargains

It’s a bank holiday weekend (yes, again) and that can only mean one thing – bargains! Most of the biggest retailers are launching their own deals just in time for summer to kick off, cutting prices on everything from barbeques to hair trimmers and much more besides.

Among the participants are eBay, Amazon, and Wilkinsons, the latter slashing prices on much of its outdoor furniture and cooking range in anticipation of the sunny weather. Currys, meanwhile, currently has offers on a selection of white goods and laptops. Read below for more details.

Depending on your plans, perhaps a new television or smart home device is more the ticket – or even a new mattress. Simba currently has a sale on a few of its bundles, in which you could end up saving almost £500.

If you don’t feel like leaving the house and tackling the crowds, then you can get 15% off at Robert Dyas by using the code 15SBH19 at online checkout. Read on to see our pick of some of the best deals around this weekend.
