Almost nine in 10 Britons plan to go on a post-Christmas sale shopping spree, according to new research from DIY specialist B&Q.

It's figures show that 88% of UK consumers expect to hit the Boxing Day sales this week, with one in five planning a "big ticket" purchase such as a kitchen or a sofa.

But where can you find the best deals this Boxing Day? Well, the first piece of advice is to get online before December 26.

Many of the big retailers, such as Argos and Debenhams, start their online sales on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

So the biggest bargains are likely to be bagged by the early birds who visit their websites before Boxing Day.

Here's our round up of the big sales and when they start. You can also find more great savings on AOL Deals.
