Ask the readers: your best (and worst) Winter sales bargains
As we approach the halfway point of the year's longest month, financially speaking at least, it's time to reflect on where all your money has gone. Christmas 2008 saw plenty of high profile sales that grabbed the media's attention - but did talk of failing high street brands create expectations that went unfulfilled?
With the death knell sounding for the likes of Woolworths and Zavvi, did you expect more bargains than you found before Christmas? Did you drown in discounts on Boxing Day, and did you spend up on the plastic on January 2nd?
Which stores and companies offered the best deals in the Winter sales? Where did you genuinely get a bargain from? Which shops were all talk and no trousers, where the only savings to be found were on the vinyl signs outside? And are there any January sales still worth getting stuck into?
Let us know your favourite sales of the seasons, and the ones that let you down.
