Best broadband deal 

NOW Full Fibre 100 

This is a particularly attractive fibre broadband deal given the 100Mbps average speed. Keep in mind that Now Broadband occasionally implements ad-hoc price increases – for example, last July products increased by £3.50 (social tariffs were excluded from the price rise). Read our NOW Broadband review to see how it fares in our survey.

Best mattress deal

Breasley Select Plus Memory 1000 Pocket

We like: Removable machine-washable cover

We don’t like: It’s a bit bouncy and hard to rotate, no sleep trial

Exclusive to online retailer MattressNextDay, the Breasley Select Plus Memory 1000 pocket is already cheaper than the average pocket sprung mattress. It is now on offer for £229, which MattressNextDay says is a £90 saving on the full price.

This 21cm-thick double mattress includes a 14cm pocket spring core over a shredded polyurethane base layer, covered by various layers of foam and memory foam. It’s described as medium firm but in our independent tests, it was rated 7.2 on a scale from 1 (very firm) to 10 (very soft).

Despite the foam layers, it doesn’t feel overly warm to lie on when you get into bed, so it should suit most people.

Best washing machine deal 

AEG LFR71844B 

AEG LFR71844B washing machine
  • Freestanding
  • 8kg cottons capacity
  • White

We like: Energy efficient

We don’t like: Oversensitive buttons

This medium-sized machine has an 8kg capacity for cottons and 3kg capacity for synthetics, as well as a 1400rpm maximum spin speed. It has 12 programs including woollens and delicates.

For those who aren’t fans of ironing, it has a ‘ProSteam’ feature that’s designed to reduce creasing. There’s also an ‘add wash’ feature that lets you pop in extra pieces of laundry once the program has started running.

Best vacuum cleaner deal 

Numatic Henry Quick Pet

vacuum deals: Numatic Henry Quick Pet stick vacuum

  • Bagged cordless vacuum
  • 1-litre dust capacity
  • Weight 3.3kg

We like: Simple to empty

We don’t like: Poor performance on minimum power

The pet variant of the first cordless handstick offering from Numatic. The standard Henry Quick comes in three colours: red (Henry Quick), pink (Hetty Quick) and graphite.

This is a bagged vacuum, so the dust pods will need to be regularly replaced. Pods are often less messy than a dust container when it comes to emptying, so this might be a good option if you suffer from dust-related allergies.

As is often the case with cordless vacs, it has a detachable handheld unit for flexibility during cleaning. The floor nozzle is an electro brush, but this model also comes with a combi tool that doubles up as an upholstery nozzle and a furniture brush. Other accessories include a scent capsule and a wall mount.

Best fridge freezer deal 

Samsung RB34C600EBN

Samsung RB34C600EBN fridge freezer
  • Freestanding
  • Frost-free freezer
  • Black

We like: It’s very quiet

We don’t like: The fridge is a bit awkward to clean

With its power cool and power freeze settings, the Samsung RB34C600EBN fridge freezer is able to quickly reduce the temperature of a big shop.

In addition to four shelves, there’s an excellent veg drawer that supplies the appropriate humidity to keep salad and fruit fresh for as long as possible.

So should you buy this Samsung fridge freezer?

Best air fryer deal 

Cosori CAF-L501 air fryer

We like: The eight cooking programs, reheat and keep warm functions

We don’t like: It doesn’t have a viewing window

This basket model from Cosori weighs around 4.5kg and has a 1.2kg capacity, which is generous for a single air fryer.

Besides its eight cooking modes, it also has an adjustable thermostat, a timer and an audio signal that indicates the end of a cycle. The digital touch display allows you to control the programs and includes a time and temperature display, program status indicator and warning display.

It measures 31 x 27 x 38cm (HxWxD) and comes with a two-year warranty.

Best TV deal 


  • 42-inch 4K TV
  • OLED display
  • Supports HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision formats

We like: Strong sound

We don’t like: Cluttered smart menu

It sounds excellent and it’s one of the better small TVs on the market. Its smart features are a mixed bag, but it does come with Amazon Alexa and ThinQ voice control built in. 

Read our LG OLED42C34LA review to see if it’s worth getting your hands on.

Best mobile phone deal 

Samsung Galaxy A25 5G

Samsung Galaxy A25
  • Exynos 1280 processor
  • 6.5-inch OLED display
  • Three rear camera lenses

We like Durable, long battery life, high-resolution screen

We don’t like Weaker front camera

This is a mid-range 2024 A-series phone from Samsung Galaxy, which has great specs for a model that’s under £200 for the first time. It has a thin build and stylish look with a large screen that holds plenty of brightness. The main camera system has a macro sensor to improve the quality of close-up shots. It’s available with 128GB or 256GB of storage.

Best laptop deal 

Asus Vivobook Go 15 E1504GA 

Asus Vivobook Go 15 E1504GA
  • Intel Core i3 processor
  • 8GB Ram
  • 256GB SSD

We like: The battery life when streaming videos

We don’t like: Sluggish boot-up

This 15-inch laptop from Asus has an eight-core Intel Core i3 processor, 8GB of Ram and 256GB of storage.

It weighs 1.53kg, which is about average for 15-inch models. But at 25mm thick, it’s pretty chunky, and not the easiest to slide into a bag. It may not be ideal if you’re going to be on the move.

It does feel pretty well built, which makes a change from the flimsy feel of many mid-priced models.

Our Asus Vivobook Go 15 E1504GA review will explain all you need to know.

This Asus Vivobook is down to £349 at Very, but compare this with the prices at other retailers below:

Best MacBook deal 

Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (2023)

Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (2023) laptop
  • Apple M2 processor
  • 8GB Ram 
  • 256GB storage

We like: Fantastic, large screen

We don’t like: Just two USB-C ports

The 15-inch MacBook Air is the biggest out of the Air models, but it’s still thinner, lighter and cheaper than MacBook Pro alternatives. Specifications-wise, it comes equipped with an Apple M2 processor with eight cores (including four ‘fast performance’ cores), 8GB of Ram and a 256GB SSD (solid state drive). 

There are just two USB-C/Thunderbolt ports on this laptop, both on the left side, along with a MagSafe charging port. On the right, you have a 3.5mm headphone/microphone jack.

Check our Apple MacBook Air 15-inch (2023) review to see if this is a better option for you than a Pro model.

Best tablet deal  

Apple iPad Air 2022 

Apple iPad Air 2022
  • 10.9-inch screen
  • M1 processor and 8GB of Ram
  • 2,360 x 1,640-pixel display

We like: Fast and powerful

We don’t like: Awkward power-off function

The Apple iPad Air has just been replaced by a 2024 model, which means this 2022 version is even cheaper. 

It has a 2,360×1,640 sharper-than-HD Liquid Retina display and comes with different memory options: 64GB, 256GB or 5G. It also has a powerful M1 processor.

There are some issues with ease of use and it’s surprisingly bulky. It may be called the iPad Air, but at almost half a kilogram, it’s hardly feather-light.

June sale shopping tips 

Check the Which? website 

As well as telling you which products are best and which are lacking, we’ve also put together a list of the best and worst shops. 

We’ve quizzed thousands of Which? members on their experiences of shopping in some of the country’s best known stores and websites, as well as with lesser known brands. 

After crunching the numbers, we can reveal which retailers score highly for product quality, range and value for money. To see the retailers that impressed in our latest shopping survey, head to our extensive guide on the best and worst shops.

Watch out for sneaky tricks

Some retailers use underhand tactics to pressure you into making a purchase. 

These include anchor pricing (when products are on sale more often than they aren’t), pressure selling (‘30 people are viewing this right now!’) and dubious claims about the ‘before’ price of a product. 

If you’re unsure how good a deal is, use a tool such as PriceRunner to compare prices across retailers. 

Research customer reviews

It’s always a good idea to read reviews before you buy a product, but not all reviews are trustworthy. 

Some sellers incentivise people to post fake positive reviews to drown out genuine negative ones. If you’re in any doubt, check our expert guide on how to spot a fake review

Returning goods

Whether you bought a product in-store or online, you still have rights under the Consumer Contract Regulations

The regulations give you a 14-day window to return a non-faulty product, which begins on the day you receive your goods. Many retailers will give you longer than this, but it’s always best to check before you buy. 

We’ve put together advice in our online returns guide on the additional rights you have when shopping online.
