Some people love shopping in sales, others hate it, but most people love a bargain.
Luckily for those of you who don't like looking, we are here to help and there is no better time for us to lend a hand than Boxing Day. For those outside the British Isles, Boxing Day is the day after Christmas, on 26 December, and sales usually run through to the first week of the new year. In most cases, they end on 2 January.
Amazon started Boxing Day deals on 26 December, hosting a range of lightning deals and longer sales across all sorts of products. For lightning deals you'll have to be fast, but you can watch forthcoming deals. Amazon is also doing daily deals, with some real bargains to be had.
