High street's bargain basement

According to today's paper, many shops dispose of their unwanted stuff, such as end-of-the-line-stock, ex-display items or returns, by slashing the prices and selling through their online shops.  If you know where to look, you can save as much as 80%. Here are three of the best online outlets for big-ticket items:

Dyson (stores.ebay.co.uk/Dyson-Outlet): buy a refurbished vacuum cleaner for up to half price. All the products have been refurbished with new parts and come with a minimum two-year guarantee. However, not all refurbished items will be good value so best to watch the prices.
Argos Clearance (stores.ebay.co.uk/clearancebargains): for anything from gadgets to garden furniture; discontinued products as well as returned and refurbished stock supplied by Argos.   Products are complete with all standard manufacturers' parts and accessories, in original packaging and are covered by the Argos 12-month guarantee.
Comet Clearance (clearance-comet.co.uk): this site auctions products that are either ex-display, refurbished, discontinued or slightly damaged; good for white goods, tvs, satnavs or even a games console.  Any damage is cosmetic and all products are in full working order and come with a six-month guarantee.  The auctions last for four days and you can bid in £5 increments.  Delivery charges vary, but a cheap installation service is offered.  NOW OUT OF DATE as Comet has since gone out of business - along with HMV, Blockbusters and Jessops.
