From Shark vacuums to Ghd hair stylers, get your Christmas money at the ready for some stellar savings

We made it. It’s 2022, and we’ve all Auld Lang Syned our way into the new year. But no sooner have the Boxing Day sales finished that our thoughts have turned to the January sales.

Once considered the shopping event of the year, these events have been overshadowed somewhat by Black Friday in recent years. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of stellar deals and discounts worth snapping up, because there most definitely are. Plus, with more online sales to take advantage of, there’s no need to wake up early to snap up those January bargains.

From when it ends to the deals worth shopping this year, here’s everything you need to know about Amazon’s 2022 January sale.

Best Amazon January sales deals 2022

Nintendo Switch: Was £279.99, now £254.98,

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most recognisable games consoles, so if you want the most versatile games console, now is the time to snap it up. This package includes the device and Switch dock in black and the contrasting Joy-Con controllers that allow for individual or two-player action. From long car journeys to commuting, play on-the-go with up to nine hours of battery life. “The Switch console, first released in 2017, is a perfect example of [Nintendo] getting it just right,” our writer said in their round-up of the best games consoles.

Apple AirPods pro with MagSafe charging case, 2021: Was £239, now £189,

“The AirPods pro are a high-end pair of earphones that are difficult to find much fault in,” said our writer when we reviewed Apple’s latest earbuds back in May. And now you can pick them up with 21 per cent off. These were the most comfortable earbuds we tried, and they have active noise cancellation, better battery life and much-improved sound quality compared to their predecessors. Our reviewer added: “If you’re a member of the iOS family, the AirPods pros are the best in-ear earphones you can get on the market, and will continue to be until Apple decides to release a successor.” It’s rare to find Apple products in sale, so make sure you don’t miss out.

Ghd platinum plus: Was £189, now £152,

Beating its rivals to the top spot in our review of the best hair stylers, Ghd’s platinum plus is a real winner in our eyes – and especially at this price. Using “ultra-zone” technology it can alter its temperature depending on your hair thickness, which means you’ll be treating your barnet to a more bespoke styling experience.

Loving both the speedy heat-up time and the styler’s versatility, our tester found it lent itself well to both wavy and curly looks, and added: “When straightening, we found we only needed one stroke to get a great finish, which comes in very handy if you’re running late. The floating plates also glided effortlessly, with zero snagging, and our hair, which has a tendency to appear dull, looked super shiny and felt healthy to touch.”

Panasonic EW1511 rechargeable dental oral irrigator: Was £99.99, now £76.99,

It’s no secret that flossing is key for dental hygiene, and water flossers can be a great alternative, especially if you’re keen on cutting down on plastic waste.

This Panasonic model, which earned a spot in our review of the best water flossers, was praised by our tester for feeling gentle on gums, while also (luckily) being “very effective for removing trapped food”. Other standout features included the choice in water pressure, as well as how it was able to remember the last setting that was used. Pretty handy.

Sony WH-1000XM4 noise cancelling wireless headphones: Was £350, now £269.99,

“These are the best wireless headphones we’ve tested”, said our tester, upon reviewing these noise canceling, Bluetooth cans from Sony. Not only did our writer find them “impressively comfortable”, but they were also blown away by the audio quality, noting that it’s “rare to experience a pair of wireless headphones with this level of audio subtlety and technical prowess.” And while the retail price could be a potential drawback, Amazon has now slashed the price by 40 percent, so luckily for us, that won’t be an issue.

Arlo Pro4 wireless home CCTV video security camera: Was £429,99, now £299.99,

When it comes to making sure your house is safe and secure, a home security camera, such as this wireless option from Arlo, can bring real peace of mind. We featured a similar Arlo camera to this one in our best security cameras review where it was praised for its picture quality, as well as how easy it was to set up. Similarly, this model has a built-in speaker and microphone, which allows you to communicate with any visitors, as well as a spotlight. It also boasts a 160-degree view and can, of course, cope with the blustery British weather too. And as it’s currently reduced by 30 per cent, we’re confident that this could be a solid investment.

The foodi can also air fry, bake, roast, dehydrate, reheat and so much more. While we haven’t personally reviewed this model, the Ninja foodi dual zone air fryer was our top pick in our round-up of the best air fryers.

Shark upright vacuum cleaner NZ801UKTSB: Was £379.99, now £245.99,

As home appliance brand’s go, Shark is one to know. Featuring in our guide to the best pet vacuum cleaners, our reviewer praised it for being a “versatile machine with some nifty pet-related tricks up its sleeve”, such as a soft roller that works in conjunction with the anti-hair-wrap brush to catch longer hairs. This system, along with the lift away feature, which allows the cylinder to disconnect from the body of the vacuum to give you more flexibility, worked well for our tester. This is a great deal with 35 per cent off.

Renpho massage gun: Was £199.99, now £104.99,

An achy body’s best friend, this pummelling tool boasts five speeds, a rechargeable lithium battery and an ergonomic design, all controlled by just one button. Said to soothe and relax sore muscles, it’s also hailed by the brand for being lightweight and compact so you can use it on the go. In our best massage gun review, we crowned a similar Renpho tool as the best entry level gun, with our testing saying: “This is the perfect device for occasional use, or if you want to test out how well a massage device aids your recovery before splashing out on a higher end model.”

Kärcher K 5 premium smart control home high pressure washer: Was £567.62, now £348.99,

Landing a spot in our review of the best pressure washers, our tester found that this hardworking model packed a “serious punch”. They said: “It’s incredibly powerful – we cranked up the power (with a light touch of the plus and minus buttons near the trigger) to clean some particularly dirty garden furniture, and years of grime disappeared in seconds.”

They also noted how easy it was to move too, owing to its “chunky wheels and a sturdy reel which prevents time-consuming tangles.” Now with 39 per cent off, this is a deal you won’t want to miss.

LG OLED77C14LB 55in 4K UHD HDR smart OLED TV: Was £1,699.99, now £1,149,

The LG C1 is one of the best OLED TVs you can buy, and right now the 55in model is on sale for £1,178 at Amazon. This actually isn’t the cheapest the TV has been – the set is almost permanently discounted, and on Black Friday it came all the way down to £1,100 – but it’s still about £100 cheaper than it was at Christmas. We featured the LG C1 in our round-up of the best TVs for gaming, where our reviewer noted that “in terms of picture quality, just wandering through the cities in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was enough to appreciate the totally immersive qualities of OLED and its ability to light each individual LED on the screen, which results in some breathtaking brightness that’s truly full-screen.”

Elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm, 100g: Was £44, now £32.83,

Elemis’s cleansing balm is enriched with rose and mimosa wax, elderberry, omega and starflower oil and a host of essential oils. It has a buttery texture that melts instantly on contact with dry skin. When we tested it, our reviewer said that “skin felt soft and smooth, with a subtle glow that you often find after having a facial. From start to finish, the experience is a luxurious treat, and the generous 100g tub will last months, as you only need a small amount.” Usually, it can be difficult to justify spending almost £50 on a product that will, quite literally, be washed down the drain. But as there’s 15 per cent off right now (and it’s three for two across selected Elemis products), we think it’s more than justified.

REN clean skincare radiance glycol lactic renewal mask, 50 ml: Was £36, now £23.80,

Made with lactic, glycolic, tartaric and citric acid, it’s just powerful enough to decongest troubled skin without triggering a breakout. We loved it so much that our reviewer named it best buy in our chemical peels round-up. “The effects were comparable to a professional facial,” said our writer. “Peels sound so harsh, and yet this gave us an unbeatable healthy, dewy finish without any unwanted side effects. Magic in a bottle.”

Amazon is offering three for two across selected Ren products at the moment, and there’s also 36 per cent to be saved on the brand’s clear calm clarifying clay cleanser (was £24, now £17.83, which featured in our round-up of the best pregnancy skincare.

One for the coffee connoisseur, this grinder has 17 per cent off and it’s one of our favourites. Featuring in our guide to the best coffee grinders, our tester voted it as the best “hi-tech” option, calling it “a good-looking bit of kit with a funky digital display”.

“With 18 grind settings, you can choose exactly how coarse you want your grounds, while the LCD display makes it fairly self-explanatory to use, and you have the ability to decide in advance how many cups of coffee you want, along with a handy, well-designed container to store it in and transport elsewhere,” they said. “Clearly a premium product, it doesn’t come cheap, but it will offer serious coffee fans plenty of options when it comes to creating the perfect brew.”

Always misplacing your precious things? Start the year off right by attaching them to one of Apple’s trusty AirTags. The AirTag is an object tracker for iOS users, and it’s a lot smarter than the current crop of Tile trackers on the market right now. This is one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen on the pack of four, so it’s well worth buying before the price goes back up. “The AirTag doesn’t just rely on Bluetooth to help track down your missing stuff,” our writer said in their review. “Ultra-wideband will also help direct you toward it. You’ll get handy arrows telling you which direction to turn in and how far away the AirTag is from your current location.”
