Okay it’s not January yet, but yesterday was the last day of Christmas shopping at Amazon a date that makes it officially post-Christmas for online commerce and time to unveil sale, after sale, after sale.
Next Directory has already posted a list of bargains to subscribers. They normally open the phone lines at 6am, but this year call centre staff get a lie in, kicking off at 10am on 27 December. And I’m already being bombarded with ‘January’ sale offers by email… the true spirit of Christmas is alive, well and making its contribution to the bottom line.
But let’s not forget the many people for whom January Sales are a little overwhelming – too many bargains, but still too little money – and spare a thought for the good people over at Thomas Cook and Thomson Holidays who have worked especially hard to bring post-Christmas, January Sale type offers to the holiday market. Their ridiculously cheap holidays mean that nobody has an excuse to stay at home.
Package holidays have struggled against the ease with which you can put a cheap holiday together yourself. But both Thomas Cook and Thomson Holidays can find you a week away for around £100; with prices like this you could rent your house out for your holiday and make a profit!
And cheap holidays don’t have to be cheap package holidays. Both Thomas Cook and Thomson Holidays do great deals on flights on sale, hotels on sale, car hire on sale at low, low prices so you can build your own holiday. Then there are ski holidays, family holidays, activity holidays and even good old fashioned beach holidays!
