Last week H&M announced it will be making its women’s clothing bigger, responding to ongoing complaints from shoppers that its sizes just don’t measure up, but is it just window dressing?
The Black Friday sales are now supposedly over, although you might still find some deals kicking around. Did you get caught up in Black Friday discount fever? Did you get a real deal, or are you now suffering buyer’s remorse?
It’s officially the run-up to ‘the most wonderful time of the year’. This means the Christmas lights are on, the mince pies are being eaten and the high streets and the internet are awash with reminders that today is officially (drum roll…) BLACK FRIDAY. (more on Black Friday 2017…)
Black Friday: It may be named after just one day but it’s increasingly becoming an altogether lengthier affair. Many shops have started their Black Friday sales already. So have you picked up some early deals yet?
Is it fair to upsell unhealthy food and drink at the tills? Shirley Cramer CBE, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for Public Health, joins us to call for a rethink on upselling…
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are nearly upon us, and thousands of us will be using these sales events to hopefully cut the expense of Christmas gift shopping. But do you know your rights when it comes to buying online and on the high street? (more on Christmas shopping rights…)
Black Friday – is it hot or not? We’ve invited three community members, Beryl, Ian and Duncan, to share their thoughts on this shopping event.

The wrapping paper is barely off before the sales have started. But if you’re looking for a bargain, don’t lose sight of your rights – they are no different whether you buy in a sale or not.
Nearly nine in 10 Britons shop online for Christmas presents. Yesterday, Cyber Monday, marked the peak of online shopping season – did you bag a bargain this year?
I love a bargain, and there’s rarely a better one than a good quality second-hand item. Be it clothes or a camera, there’s a booming market for second-hand goods. But does buying second hand sacrifice your rights?
I love the summer sales – all those clothes and shoes suddenly slashed in price tend to give my card a bit of a workout. Luckily I haven’t run into any problems while sales shopping, but what should you do if you have?
You know the drill. You book a holiday and the travel agent tries to tag on travel insurance. Or you’re offered a great deal on an extended warranty for your new washing machine. But are these add-on products worth it?
