The Independent Online

WH Smith launched its gadget sale last week, with 70 per cent off the price of electronics and computing items online. Top items from the sale, which runs for as long as stocks last, include a Logitech webcam for £2.49 (was £39.99), a Sweex 4GB MP4 player for £7.49 (was £59.99) and a seven-inch digital photo frame for £9.99 (was £69.99). As Martin Lewis' Money Saving Expert website points out, WH Smith may claim the sale is "up to 70 per cent off" but the webcam is actually subject to a staggering, 94 per cent discount.

Products have been known to go for as little as half their recommended retail price, so it's well worth heading over to to check it out.
