Half price champagne, 20% off pizza and a classic DVD for just £3.99. It has all the hallmarks of a fantastic - and dirt cheap - night in...With many high street sales in full-swing, there are lots of opportunities right now to save money on all manner of goodies. It has to be said, though, that trawling your local town centre trying to bag a bargain isn't always fun. So for Fools who prefer to do their sale shopping from the comfort of the sofa, here are a few great websites where you'll find fantastic discounts this week. Top Tips For Canny Shoppers For some of us, the transition from winter to spring brings the beginning of the wickedly expensive wedding season. If you have friends and family getting hitched over the next few months, you'll have travel, accommodation and gift costs to worry about... Not to mention the nightmare of deciding what to wear. While sales such as the Blue Cross 70% off event at Debenhams are worth looking at for presents you can stockpile, ladies looking for something to wear could head to the website of upmarket womenswear store Hobbs this week. While items are usually quite costly, their 50% off sale features classic dresses, knitwear, shoes and accessories at very reasonable prices. Should any nuptials you attend leave you in festive mood, the Tesco Wine Club currently has a host of brilliant half price offers on cases of wine and champagne that can be ordered from your armchair. The club is free to join, and cases of wine start at around £20. It's also worth checking out their selection of bin-end wines, where some more expensive cases are discounted by as much as £28. If it's casual weekend-wear you're looking for, why not check out Uniqlo. A recent Japanese import to the UK, Uniqlo's flagship store is on Oxford Street in London - but a vast array of its great quality basics for men and women are also available online. Much of its famously cheap and chic denim is now discounted, with many pairs of jeans costing less than £20. Lingerie store La Senza currently has a whole host of offers on its underwear. Many items are available at half price, and there are also special deals on some bras (2 for £20) and knickers (2 pairs for £6). Elsewhere, Shoe-Shop.com is offering up to 70% off footwear from brands as diverse as Sketchers, Hush Puppies, Kickers and Converse. If all that shopping has left you needing to put your feet up (ahem), HMV.com has several great sale items on offer this week. The Special Edition DVD of Quentin Tarantino's classic Pulp Fiction is available for just £3.99 delivered. Children - and big kids old enough to remember it - will be delighted ("as if by magic") by Mr Benn, also £3.99 delivered. Blackwell bookshops are also offering 20% off the re-launched Oxford World's Classics book series. Choose from an array of titles - whose re-designed covers will also brighten up your coffee table. If you're a pizza-lover, you can still get 20% off Domino's Pizzaorders over £20 when you pay with your Barclaycard. Quote code BCZ8LJJJ when you're ordering. But fill up fast - the offer ends on April 30th. Finally, keen amateur photographers might want to look at Play.com's offer on this Panasonic Lumix camera. Currently available with a third off at £209.99, this isn't a compact snapper - but its many functions are simple to use, and it's a great option for those who'd like to take a step up from their basic `point and click' digital camera.
