Amazon Prime Day, Black Friday, and the Christmas season may throw the biggest savings to consumers in the year, but where do you go through the rest of the year for a solid tech deal? How do you keep track of the best offers around? And how do you know you're getting the absolute best price?

Relax. We'll do the hard work.

Whether you're looking for a discount on a new laptop, a Samsung Galaxy S21, the iPhone 12, a new Fitbit, or discounts on consoles like the Nintendo Switch (or where the heck to buy a PS5!) we've got you covered.

Below we've listed the top 20 deals right now in the UK, which we'll be updating every week and whenever we spot anything particularly tasty.

You can also subscribe to the Tech Advisor Deals newsletter to get a weekly round up of the best offers.
