About Currys Sales
Sales are a shopper’s favourite occasion, offering you lower prices on the goods you just can’t wait to get your hands on. Join us as we take a look at Currys sales and how much they can save you.
What kind of sales do Currys have?
The Currys range covers appliances, TV & audio, computing, gaming, cameras, phones, smart tech and home & outdoor, and you can expect to find discounts across the board during their seasonal sales.
There are also frequent category-specific discounts on offer throughout the year, such as Currys TV Sales or discounts on laptops around new school & university terms. You’ll also want to watch for sales around the launch of new products like the next iPhone, and sales to celebrate big anniversaries or milestones, such as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
When are the Currys Sales?
Like any major retailer, Currys love a sale and run them throughout the year, with the biggest price reductions coming around key retailing seasons. Expect discounts around seasonal events like Christmas & Boxing Day, Black Friday, January and Easter, among others.
As we've mentioned you’ll also find price drops on smaller, more frequent occasions such as paydays, bank holidays & the end of school or university terms. These often focus on specific categories, or are available for a more limited time.

Currys Sales Calendar
Epic Deals Event
Currys launched their 'Epic Deals' event in 2022, which was created to rival Amazon Prime Day and offered up to 30% off items across their range including vacuums, TVs, kitchen appliances and headphones.
We saw £200 off Samsung 4k TVs, 30% off Shark vacuums, over 50% off Oral B electric toothbrushes, 25% off chromebooks and 35% off Ninja blenders, with savings on hundreds on products across their range. There were even cashback offers of up to £400 on Sony TVs, as well as a competition for 10 customers to win £2,000 towards their energy bills if they were signed up to Currys Perks.
Back to School & University Essentials
Currys frequently run sales on study essentials around the start of new academic years and at the end of school and university terms. September is usually the big one, as this is when the academic year starts for most school & university students.
Previously, we’ve seen up to 20% off laptops, tablets and notebooks for students, with similar discounts on related accessories also offered on occasion. If you aren’t sure what kind of device you’ll need for your studies, Currys also have laptop buyer’s guides for students on their website, which can be handy to work out what kind of device you’re after before the sales start.
Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Black Friday is a biggie at Currys. So big in fact, there’s a whole page on their website dedicated to it. Black Friday often features huge price drops across all categories, including high-priced items like TVs, games consoles and laptops. For those who miss the best Black Friday deals, Cyber Monday follows close behind just a few days later, and offers similarly great discounts across the Currys range.
Last year, Black Friday was on Friday 26th November and Cyber Monday followed on Monday 29th November. We saw savings of up to £100 on over ear headphones, up to £500 off 4K TVs, and up to £170 off laptops. In 2022, Black Friday falls on Friday 25th November, with Cyber Monday due to follow on Monday 28th November. You can check out our Currys Black Friday page for an in-depth look at what to expect.
Christmas & Boxing Day Sales
Last year, Currys’ Christmas Sales began in early December (right off the back of their Black Friday deals), with flash sales offering up to 70% off smart watches, coffee machines and headphones. The deals carried on right up until the last minute, with £150 off gaming PCs, £100 off HP laptops, and £120 off Nespresso Coffee Machines still available on December 21st.
According to Alex at TechRadar, Currys were one of the first retailers to kick off their Boxing Day sales too, starting on Christmas Eve. They offered 66% off coffee machines, up to 30% off TVs, laptops, vacuums, smartwatches, headphones and large home appliances. On larger items, this added up to a serious sum - you could nab a Samsung Fridge Freezer at £400 off, or a Smart TV for up to £1200 less than the RRP.
This year, we expect Christmas sales to begin in early December again, with low prices up for grabs right until the last minute, and the Boxing Day sales to start as early as Saturday 24th December.
Currys Boxing Day sales and January sales are often rolled into one. Last year, the January sales started on Friday 24th December, running alongside the Boxing Days and continuing for the first couple of weeks of 2022. There were deals of up to 70% off on appliances such as air fryers, corded & cordless vacuum cleaners, fridges and freezers, as well as cameras, fitness trackers, laptops, headphones and more.
We saw enormous savings on Smart TVs, with £1200 off the Samsung Smart 8K HDR Neo QLED TV, which came with Alexa and Google Assistant built-in. Sound systems were also up for grabs, with 50% off the Samsung All-in-One Sound Bar. It was a prime time to buy coffee machines too, with top of the range models like the DeLonghi autentica etam 29.510.SB bean-to-cup coffee machine down to £349 from £699, a saving of £350.
Currys launched their Easter sales early in 2022 due to the placement of the bank holiday, with deals appearing from March 30th until Tuesday 19th April, two days after Easter Sunday on April 17th. Customers could save up to 50% off smart tech such as Amazon doorbells & assistants, HP Chromebooks, DeLonghi toasters, Huawei Tablets, Philips 4K LED TVs and more.
Easter 2023 will fall on Sunday 9th April, so although we don’t expect the Currys Easter sale will run for quite as long, the deals are likely to kick off in mid-to-late March, giving you plenty of time to get shopping.
Father's Day Sale
In 2022, Father’s Day fell on Sunday 19th June, and Currys ran a select few deals on tech essentials to mark the occasion. LG TVs were on offer with up to £200 off, and you could bag brand new PC Monitors for £120 less than the RRP.
Next time Father’s Day rolls around will be Sunday 18th June 2023. Generally, father’s day deals can be found the week or two before the event, so if you’re after some top tech to gift your dad, be sure to check in from the beginning of June.
Mother's Day Sale
In 2022, Mother’s day fell on Sunday 27th March, and Currys slashed prices on plenty of tech gift ideas from as early as the 14th March. Fitness trackers were on offer at 30% off, with Roku Smart Soundbars sold at £30 off and premium DeLonghi coffee machines down an enormous £550.
Currys also ran an exclusive ‘More for Mums’ promotion offering free Apple or Fiit subscriptions with the purchase of selected mother’s day gifts, such as Dyson hair straighteners, Nespresso Coffee Machines and Braun juicers. Next Mother’s Day will be Sunday 19th March 2023, so it’s likely sales will start at the beginning of the month.
Currys Payday sales typically take place at the end of each month just as everyone’s salaries come in, letting you grab discounted tech when your bank balance can handle the hit.
A payday sale back in March 2022 offered up to 30% off on selected TVs, Smartphones and Laptops, and included deals like £50 off the Apple iPhone 13, £120 off HP 15s-eq2510sa 15.6" Laptops, and 10% off the LG OLED48C14LB 48" Smart TV.
Other Kinds of Currys Sales
This list isn’t exhaustive, and as we mentioned before, Currys love sales on smaller and more frequent occasions which tend to target specific categories or ranges. You’ll also want to watch for sales around the launch of new products such as new iPhone models, as well as sales related to anniversary or milestone-related celebrations, such as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
For example, Bethan from t3 reported that Currys offered up to 70% off on categories such as TV and computing for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee (Thursday 2nd to Sunday 4th June), including devices from brands like Apple, LG, Samsung, Lenovo, ASUS, Dell & Sony, plus 70 free tech prizes for selected lucky shoppers.
When is the next Currys sale?
Based on previous years, the next big sale likely to launch at Currys after the Epic Deals event ends will be their Back to School & University promotions, which typically kick off in September. As mentioned above, this will likely offer price drops of around 20% primarily on laptops & tablets, but it’s worth watching for discounts on TVs, sound systems & games consoles too.
Currys are also running a few 'Summer Inflation Buster' promotions over this summer. The most useful promotion for money-saving is the 2021 Price Lock sale which is running until late July. Prices are being kept at 2021 levels, and will be updated every 30 days until September.
