THE New Year has arrived and now is the perfect time to bag yourself a post-Christmas treat.
We are now in 2022 and many people will be searching for the best discounts online to start the new year in the best way possible.
Big retailers just as Amazon have big savings this January that is sure to find their way into your New Year shopping basket.
Whether you plan on saving the cash or fancy a splurge, here is everything you need to know about the January sales in 2022:
When do the Boxing Day sales end?
On December 26 each year, retailers put out their best bargains with major discounts following a chaotic Christmas period.
In recent years, some retailers have extended their Boxing Day offers well into the New Year and even until the end of January itself.
When do the January sales begin?
Typically, the January sales officially launched on New Year's Day.
The duration of the January sales is often up to the individual retailer, with final markdowns on items that were included in the Boxing Day sales.
Are the January sales as good as Black Friday?
Black Friday discounts often combine one-off deals with savings across the entire month and the January sales follow the same protocol.
Each sale means different reductions depending on the retailer and in 2021, Simba offered a discount of up to 50% for Black Friday but in the January sales, the reduction has been dropped to up to 45%.
The 2022 discounts for the January sale cannot be compared to Black Friday 2021 for all retailers as of yet.
