Having a plan of action is the best way to stick to a budget and guard against last-minute expenses.
Create a separate list for food, gifts, and social events at the beginning of the Christmas season – this will help you to prioritise your spending and have a clear plan for the whole festive season.
Buying your gifts in auction is the perfect way to make sure you’re sticking to your set limit because you decide what you pay, this allows for you to be more flexible with the amount you’re spending without going over your limit. With huge discounts on RRPs on renowned brands, you could save even more on your high street favourites.
Christmas is a busy time for having friends and family over to your home.
If you’re looking to upgrade the dining table, guest bedroom, or give the house a makeover for the festive season, you can save up to 75% off RRP on furniture and appliances from top high street brands in auction.
Our weekly auctions feature fantastic on-trend furniture from dining table sets to bed frames, sofas, and cabinets from brands including John Lewis and more.
Give your whitegoods an upgrade before the festive season hits and save your money by deciding what you pay in auction on whitegoods and home appliances from top brands including LG, Bosch, Smeg and many more in our weekly auctions.
Top tech accessories are on Christmas wish lists for the young and old this year, but the price of the latest in gadgetry can often use up a lot of gift budget.
You can get more for your money in our auctions, with a huge variety of tech including laptops, smartphones, tablets, gaming accessories and so much more from top brands like Apple, Samsung and Toshiba available across our sites every week.
The best thing about it is that YOU decide what you pay, meaning you can stick to your budget and score a deal on tech that you may never buy on the high street.
It might seem a little bit crazy to start thinking about next Christmas just after this one’s finished, but the New Year is a great time to start your savings for the Christmas ahead.
Keep an eye on our weekly auctions for decorations, evergreen trees, and lights after January to score pristine products at a potential saving of up to 75% off RRP.
