Check the Clearance
In store there will always be clearance stock – overstocked products or perfectly good tech from last season. What’s available will vary between locations but you’re bound to get an amazing deal.
Currys’ website allows you to check the nationwide clearance from home, but be quick because the stock is limited! Have a look here.
The eBay outlet offers some exclusive deals. Often some of it will be refurbished or used, but if this is the case - you’ll be informed. Check out the eBay outlet here.
Exclusive Online Offers
If you scroll down to the bottom of Currys' homepage, you'll find a summary of the its best current deals running across the site which are exclusive to the website.
If you do your research and you find another store selling the same item cheaper, tell Currys and they’ll match the price! This includes special discounts, and even works after you’ve bought your item (only seven days though). It takes a bit more effort to do, but you could save so much money for yourself by putting your detective hat on 🕵️.
69% of Currys customers said they got a significant discount by haggling. This makes them one of the best companies to try haggle with – just ask for money off and see what happens, you might be pleasantly surprised!
And if you’ve had a problem, like with any good company, there are benefits to complaining. Companies like to keep customers happy, so if they’ve made a few mistakes, who knows what vouchers, discount codes or refunds they’ll give you to stop you from shopping elsewhere. They’ve made it super easy for you to inform them too, with a helpful online tool. Gone are the days of marching into a store and confronting an employee, just leave a note on their website instead!
There’s no price limit – all deliveries are free! Or if you would prefer to grab your purchases sooner rather than receive them in the post later, you can easily arrange to go to your local store and collect your shopping too.
