When it comes to sales, most of the major events take place at the tail end of every year, from Black Friday to Cyber Monday and Boxing Day. But when it comes to sales at the start of the year, things are a little bit quiet. On the one hand, that’s good news for our wallets. But on the other, it can be a bit of a drag having to wait until November to pick up a new pair of headphones for very cheap. So if you’ve been hanging out for some cracking tech bargains, you’ll want to check out Amazon’s Big Smile Sale.
Here’s everything you need to know about the massive sale, along with the best tech deals you can grab during the event.
