PriceSpy's top tips for TV shopping deals 

Always shop around  

It's obvious but it really is the only way to be sure you're getting the best deal. The best prices aren't always the first that pop up on search engines. Take the leg work out of comparing by using a price comparison site.  

Check the history 

Online prices are updated constantly. Often retailers inflate prices to later drop them once the initial hype of a new product launch has died down. Do not take the first price given to you. PriceSpy can give the price history and prediction for certain products so you can evaluate the best time to buy to get the cheapest rate.  

Be smart on specs  

Not every new model is the right one for you. Look at trusted review sites so you can get a clear idea of what you are getting from your money. Also, check the model before it, or the one before that, to weigh up how many new features are on this device. Why fork out extra for one tiny change in the spec, when the older model is often much cheaper, with little difference in functionality?
