Sale madness 

I hope you've all had a great Christmas! I'm pretty sure I shouldn't eat anything else until at least 2008, but somehow think I will!

The sales have of course started - many of the on-line retailers not even waiting for the festivities to end with sales starting on Christmas Eve. The term 'price slashed' has traditionally meant 'price lowered a little bit' - although this year that meaning seems to have fallen by the wayside. The prices of some of our favourite gadgets have indeed been slashed!

When we reviewed the Funkeys back in September the recommended price for a starter pack was £25 - and the best price we could find was Amazon at £17.99. The price now from Amazon is £6.99. The Oral-B Triumph toothbrush recently reviewed, already at around half the RRP is now only £49.99.

With these reductions it's not surprising people are waiting until after Christmas to buy their gadgets - if you're not seeing your family on Christmas day itself then why pay potentially double for something?

We've posted some sale offers we've come across on our 'offers' page.

Tell us how you've got on in the sales: are you taking part? Looking for anything in particular? Found a bargain you're especially proud of finding? Use the comment area below to leave your comments.
