    Superdrug clearance sale: Up to 90% off 22nd Dec 08 at 7:44 PM
    Update Note 4pm Christmas Eve. Rather annoyingly Superdrug seems to have been unable to deliver the online early sale. Frankly the company should be embarassed, having touted huge discounts and left people unable to get them. Hopefully it won't disappoint customers in its stores do badly on Boxing day.

    What's the deal?

    Superdrug is slashing up to 90% off health and beauty items in its seasonal sale. The sale starts online at Superdrug on Christmas Eve and moves into stores on Boxing Day.

    Sale items will be available in all 914 stores but 300 selected stores will have more up for grabs.

    For a full daily updated list of sales read the Sales Diary and for possible extra discounts see Shopping Vouchers.

    Get extra cashback

    Go via a special cashback site and you'll get a slice of cash on top. If you're new to cashback site read the Top Cashback Sites article.

    What's up for grabs?

    Here are some examples of what will be available. At the moment we only have info below from the press office, but it looks like it will be good, hence the heads up, but until its actually on, its impossible to know for sure and how widespread it'll be

    Does anyone know if this is on the perfume gift sets too? We normally go into Boots on Boxing day as their perfume gift sets are normally half price, so if Superdrug can beat that, then its a trip to Superdrug this year instead!

    Anyone know what time the Merry Hill store opens boxing day? Are the stores opening early espcially for this sale or normal times?

    They will be open as a normal boxing times...10-4

    I'm the perfume Specialist in my Superdrug...and I've had a quick peep at the reductions..

    Not quite sure whether it's 90%(unlikely), but there are heavy reductions on a lot of items. We are normally up to 60% cheaper anyway, but I think there's another 30-40% off Fragrance. Dont hold me to that...but there are some really great deals....

    As a shop assistant you have my entire sympathies. Why retailers have to open on Boxing Day beats me! People have been shopping ready for Christmas since October (or earlier!) they could easily go another day before they start again, allowing retail staff a little more time at home with their families. HeyHo!!! Still I am hugely grateful to still have a job in the current retail climate. Merry Christmas!!!

    Just looking on the website, why is the search so rubbish? I typed in 'vitamin e eye gel' with the search set to 'most relevant' just to see if the reductions were on already, and it gave me a load of fake tan products just because they contained vitamin e! Nothing to do with eyes at all! Am I missing something? lol
    Might have to just go on there at midnight and do a mad quick shop then!
  • LydiaSophia
    I bet you anything that many people will be trying to get on the website at midnight it crashes!
