How much could you save by shopping online this Christmas?

Online vs the High Street
We all know how convenient online shopping is, but is it true that shopping online can save money too ?

We decided to test this by looking at a selection of the most popular electronic products for Christmas gifts this year, and found that if you purchased all of these gifts (total cost = $5,195) you would have saved almost $1,000 (18%) by shopping online !

Given that an average saving of nearly 20% can be achieved for many products just by checking online before hitting the shops, we’re amazed that anyone goes to shops anymore !

See below a few of this year’s popular products that we selected.
