This online shopping hack could save you HUNDREDS on top brands like Boohoo

The hack – which sees exactly the same items sold but for considerably less – was unveiled on Channel 4's Supershoppers.

Retail expert Leigh Sparks unveiled how the same items from well-known labels such as Boohoo or Littlewoods are selling for much less – on eBay.

While the site may be associated with car auctions, the show, presented by Anna Richardson and Sabrina Grant, showed eBay also has official ‘stores’.

They have a host of clearance shops from top-name brands, including Very, Littlewoods, Debenhams, Argos, and products which appear on Currys.

While the bargain stores may come as a surprise to some shoppers, they have in fact been around for a while.


More than 50 big name brands, including Superdrug and Tesco, have these official shops on the auction site.

There’s a range of stock available, including leftover sale items, end-of-the-line stock, last season's items or ex-display stock.

The outlet stores also carry some are refurbished items, but some are brand new.

In last Thursday’s episode of Supershoppers, they showed a Breville toaster on sale on Littlewoods website for £34.99, but it was just £19.99 on eBay.


Fabulous found a V by Very pleated print maxi dress for £19.99 on eBay, and the same dress being sold by Littlewoods for £43.50.

And a 10-in-1 multicooker by Morphy Richards costs £79.99 on the clearance site on eBay, but would set you back £189.99 from Currys.

Boohoo had a host of items at a discounted price on eBay, with a tropical kimono £18 on its main site, but half price – £9 – on eBay.

And a pair of silver high-heeled shoes were £30 on its own site, but just £24 on eBay.

A crocheted kimono jacket cost £25 on Boohoo, but £22.50 on eBay.


Not just daily items, but expensive gear was also on sale for a fraction of its true cost.

An Apple Watch series 1 is being sold by Littlewoods for £369.99, but the same item was just £229.99 on eBay.

Similarly a Smeg juicer is advertised as £579.99 on Littlewoods, but the same item costs just £279.99 on eBay.

The show reminded shoppers to always make the necessary checks when buying online.
