Top money saving website named DiscountVouchers.co.uk has reported that ahead of the looming VAT increase sales of large ticket items have rocketed, which has resulted in sales figures for the start of January 2011 increase by a massive 500%.

Amongst the most popular items that have been purchased include white goods, memberships for health and fitness, holidays, computers and televisions. The leading site also reported that the value of January sales has gone up by an impressive 39%, showing that there is a clear demand for large ticket items before the VAT rise kicks in.

The leading money saving site found that savings from retailers of up to 70% has also had an impact on the increase of sales throughout the festive period as well as those into January. The figures for December sale were up by a staggering 600% due to the increasing popularity of voucher codes as well as the trend in consumers choosing to shop around for the very best savings. The main areas which experienced growth included gifts and experiences and food and beverages.

Simon Terry, DiscountVouchers.co.uk Director said, "With the VAT increase fast approaching this has most certainly encouraged many consumers to make their costly purchases at the beginning of the year. Combining the looming VAT increase and the massive discounts available from many retailers many of these deals have simply been to irresistible for consumers. This has resulted in sales rocketing massively which has emphasised the role that money saving sites like ours has in helping shoppers find the best deals around."

"More people are starting to understand that they are not bound to paying the full price on most items, as if they shop around and haggle in this current market they will normally be able to get some sort of discount from leading brands as well as specialist stores."

Despite the future increase of VAT, January sales are continuing to offer a vast range of savings such, many of which are now available at DiscountVouchers.co.uk. Some examples include: weekend breaks with Hilton Hotels for up to 50% off; Zizzi main course discounts of 50%; House of Fraser reductions of up to 70%; First Choice offers such as children go free and up to £200 discounts for couples; and a massive 60% off DVD & Blu-rays at Amazon as well as video game discounts of up to 70%.

Mr Terry added, "With the bad weather conditions in December as well as many shoppers deciding to tighten their wallets many retailers have found it hard to hit their targets. This has resulted in a massive batch of sales being introduced for consumers. Some retailers have started to produce some of their bests ever deals, those such as 50% off are becoming standard and even massive reductions such as 70% are now being considered absolutely normal."
