We'll be rounding up all the best Bank Holiday sales right here when the weekend itself rolls around. Until then, you'll find a selection of our favourite deals available right now.  The Bank Holiday sales are a great time to shop for a cheap laptop deal.

With recent demand rising, plenty of retailers have been competing with some fantastic prices over the last few weeks as stock inventories start to heal from the initial impact of lockdown. That means we're likely to see plenty of savings on everything from cheap Chromebooks to more powerful machines this week.  Here are the best laptop deals you can grab now if you need something straight away, or to bear in mind when the Bank holiday sales do roll around. 

If you're looking to keep yourself entertained during this Bank Holiday, there's likely to be plenty of sales catering to your needs with cheap tablet and iPad deals. With the release of the 2020 iPad Pro, we expect to see discounts on previous high-end models, and the Samsung Galaxy range is likely to offer similar savings to those looking for an Android tablet instead. Below, you'll find some of the latest sales available today.

Smartwatch and fitness tracker deals are usually pretty reliable over the Bank Holiday sales, and though we're not getting out and about as much as we usually do, things still look good for some discounts in 2020. Thanks to new releases pushing the prices of older models down, and more wrist candy to choose from than ever, you'll find some healthy deals available right now.  Headphones and speakers always do well in Bank Holiday sales.

Typically (though not always) less expensive than laptops, tablets, and 4K TVs, premium earbuds and over-ear headphones have a habit of dropping in price during sales like this. Keep an eye on AirPods for some particularly exciting deals, as well as some of the older Bose and Beats models. 

4K TV deals are likely to make a splash in this year's Bank Holiday sales, so be sure to keep your eye on the latest prices if you plan on upgrading your set this month. That said, we're still seeing some fantastic deals available right now, so if you see a price you like there's no point in waiting. 

If you're looking to beat the lockdown blues with an Xbox One or PS4 bundle deal, the Bank Holiday sales will serve up some excellent prices next week. Stock is looking particularly strong at the moment, however, with the offers below from Currys already standing out. 

When will the Bank Holiday sales start?

The early May Bank Holiday has been moved to Friday the 8th this year, to coincide with VE Day celebrations. That means you'll have a whole weekend of sales to shop, with plenty of deals spanning the entire week as well.

We're seeing retailers publish their deals earlier and earlier at the moment, so keep this page bookmarked for all the latest information, and start checking back regularly from Wednesday 6th May for the latest discounts.
