It's not much of a steal if you weren't prepared to spend the 300 odd quid on that new Tiki bar to start with.
With that in mind, here's all the best heatwave sales from BBQs to pools, and more.
The Range – 6ft paddling pool
- Was: £24.99 Now: £18.74 Save: £6.25 – buy now
There's nothing better than a splash about to cool off in a heatwave, and roasting Brits can do it at a fraction of the price thanks to sale items at The Range.
Its 6ft pool has had over £6 knocked off the price, making it under £20 to buy.
The garden accessory is a "self-forced" swimming pool – which means you only need to inflate the top ring to get it standing up on the grass.
Once you've got that bit blown up, simply fill the pool with water to make the walls rise.
Then, with cozzies at the ready, you are all set to take a dip.
Argos – sun lounger
- Was: £38 Now: £25 Save: £13 – buy now

Shoppers can save a tenner in Robert Dyas' sale, with a spanking new bit of kit for just £49.99.
Its Landmann Charcoal Kettle barbecue has undergone the impressive reduction, while providing everything you need to cook up an al fresco meal for friends and family.
With a 43cm diameter cooking grill, you have plenty of space to cook a variety of meats and veg, and thanks to the removable ash catcher and stainless steel grill, this BBQ is easy to clean afterwards too.
You just need lump wood charcoal or briquettes to fire away.
Aldi – square fire pit
- Was: £89.99 Now: £69.99 Save: £20 – buy now
Staying hot, shoppers can splurge on a budget fire pit too.
Especially if they shop at Aldi, as the bargain retailer has slashed £20 off the price of its outdoor gear.
It may be roasting through the day, but as the night draws on you might need a flame or two to keep warm, so the Specialbuy perfectly suits.
It's designed with a spark cover and also includes a poker and mesh cover for safer enjoyment as well.
Just be careful with where you decide to home it, as the Gardenline fire pit needs a nice open and airy space to work properly and safely.
B&M – hanging egg chair
- Was: £200 Now: £150 Save: £50 – buy now
Another garden deal you won't want to hang-about-for comes straight from bargain heavy-weight, B&M.
Its Island Paradise egg chair has been reduced by £50 in time for the heatwave.
It only seats one, so you won't be sharing the sun-trap with any company this weekend.
But the smooth rocking action of the hanging chair, as you hunker down into its comfortable seat cushion, will have you drifting off in the sunshine in no time.
B&M – Lay-Z-Spa hot tub
- Was: £400 Now: £220 Save: £180 – buy now

Its lowest offer is only £220 – a steal to splash out on.
Especially as that price has been knocked down more than once before.
Originally the four person tub cost £400 to buy.
Then the bargains store slashed the full price of the tub down to £350.
Before long it saw another reduction down to £250, and now it's even cheaper with another £30 off the price.
That's a lot of price-cuts to wrap your head around in this heat, so all you need to know is there's a whopping £180 saving to be made on the bubbly tub right now.

- Was: £350 Now: £270 Save: £80 – buy now
At Club Tropicana, drinks are free – or at least they are when you've managed to save a whopping £80 on your initial Tiki bar splurge.
