Surge in Online Promotions

Online offers and promotional codes surge as Christmas shopping approaches climax.

Many of us are in Christmas shopping mode in a big way this week, and for many retailers annual records will be broken despite some belt-tightening. Attracting business before and after Christmas is so critical to online retailers that we'll see plenty of incentives to make sure we shop. This week is no exception, with discount codes from leading brands.

Promotional codes, which are sometimes called voucher codes or discount codes, are used by online retailers as short-term incentives to encourage us to shop at their stores. A code is likely to offer discounted pricing, free delivery charges or maybe a gift. Typically as a shopper we visit a site like PromotionalCodes.org.uk, find a code for the retailer we want to visit, and continue to the retailer's site. As long as a code is entered during the purchase, the offer will kick in.

Working with PromotionalCodes.org.uk we have rounded up this week's best online offers as we all rush headlong into Christmas shopping.

Two codes in the list are worth a special mention. We've mentioned clothes from Play.com previously. Maybe you don't associate clothes with this great entertainment retailer with breathtaking prices, but with an offer of 20% off clothing until December 21, it makes sense to try out this retailer for clothes shopping.

The other is Bhs. You can take advantage of 10% off this week, but the code is valid only until December 10th.
