Smyths Half Price Sale (50% off) When Next?
The most popular Smyths sale event is the Half Price Toy Sale.
Unfortunately, there was no Smyths 50% off sale in 2021 or 2022. In 2021 it was partly due to supply chain issues including shortages of shipping containers and storage of HGV drivers. However there was also no sale in 2022
If there is a sale in 2023 we can typically expect this sale to start in the 2nd half of October, so for 2022, we predict the sale to start around Tuesday 17th October 2023.
We will update this page as soon as the official date is released.
Past Half Price Sale Dates:
- No half price sale in 2022
- No half price sale in 2021
- Thursday 22nd October to Monday 9th November 2020 (19-day sale)
- Tuesday 15th October to Tuesday 22nd October 2019 (8-day sale)
Black Friday Sales
Smyths Toys takes part in the annual Black Friday event in a big way and offers a great opportunity to pick up some bargains in time for Christmas.
In 2021 Black Friday was on the 26th of November, although Smyth’s sales prices went live 3 days earlier on Tuesday 23rd November.
£10 off £50 Spend
This is another popular Smyths Toys sale event from the past, which may or may not return, but is often looked for from past customers.
Although the discount is not as large as 50% off, instead of working out at a saving of 20%, it has the advantage of being applied to a lot more items in the store.
Unfortunately, videos games and consoles were excluded, and obviously, gift cards don’t qualify either.
However, that still leaves a whole lot of items on sale.
The £10 off counts towards every £50 you spend. If you spend £100, expect £20 off, spend £150 get £30 off and so on.
£6 or £50 Spend
There was also sometimes a similar sales event which didn’t offer quite as much value with £6 off a £50 spend.
Next Predicted Sales Dates:
Neither of these sale events has taken place for a couple of years now, but possibly due to COVID in 2020 and supply chain issues in 2021, or perhaps they just prefer to focus on the Black Friday deals.
However, the events used to take place in September so one to watch for September 2022 when hopefully supply chains have settled down a bit.

How to Get Extra Discount at Smyths Toys Sale
In addition to the sales prices there are usually extra ways you can get even more money off the final bill.
Smyths Toys Cashback
At the time of writing Smyths toys is one of the few retailers that don’t appear on any of the best cashback sites:
However, they may be worth checking in case this ever changes. I know in the past they have featured on the above sites so may well do again in the future.
2% to 5% Discount Tip
Zilch is a form of payment that offers two options. Firstly there’s the buy now pay later option, which is not something I would recommend as it encourages overspending and getting into debt.
However, it also has an option that can earn you 5% in rewards and it’s the option to “Pay it All Now“. This allows you to pay for your purchases in full using the Zilch digital MasterCard and the funds are immediately used from your bank account. No debt.
Currently, the cashback reward rate is 5% which is quite a saving, especially if you can also combine it with other cashback deals. Even if they lower back to 2% its an extra saving.
You can learn more about how Zilch works here, and I also have separate step by step instructions on how to claim an instant free £10 Zilch referral when you sign up without even spending any money.
