The humble PC will remain an important purchase for the hybrid working era but you might not have too much to spend on one. Whether you want a gaming rig, all-in-one or a traditional tower we've found the best discounts around.
We've been shopping the sales for you to find the best legitimate discounts and voucher codes so you find the best bargains with ease.
Since they're usually expensive at full price, PCs often have some of the deepest discounts around. And with a constant churn of new components you can always find massive savings by opting for hardware that's a year or two old - but often still plenty powerful.
As a rule of thumb, if you see the right product within your budget then make sure you don't miss out as prices can change quickly or stock run out.

PC deals 2022: What to look for
More than with most things, it's worth making sure you know how much a given component or PC setup is worth - retailers love to advertise reductions that aren't quite as good as they appear, by quoting the initial RRP rather than a product's most recent price. Plan what components you want - and how much they cost normally - and you can make sure you don't get fooled by dodgy "discounts".
The biggest discounts are on pre-built desktops and all-in-one computers (think iMacs, where the computer and the screen are built into the same unit). If you're happy to build your own, or upgrade your existing setup, keep an eye on component sites though.
Where to find PC bargains
Where you want to go depends a lot on what you're looking for. If you want to buy a pre-built computer or just some simple accessories, then some of the standard electronics retailers are the best bet:
If you're looking to pick up components though, you'd be better off looking at the following (some of which sell pre-built PCs too, for what it's worth):
If you find that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30-day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you'll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.
