Don’t Be Lured Into Spending By Supermarket Vouchers

Despite cautioning about the temptation to spend money to save money, sometimes I still succumb to the lure of supermarket vouchers. When I filled up the car at Sainsbury’s, I received two Nectar vouchers. One for triple Nectar points on my next Sainsbury’s shop within the following three weeks. The other offered 8p a litre […]

Wumtu from Three Mobile

I was prompted to download Three money saving app Wumtu to my mobile phone when I received a text message from Three informing me that I could claim a free Costa Strawberry Frostini that Friday.

We stayed a the Travelodge Aberdeen Central Justice Mill on a Sunday night in early May 2018. I booked the room during a £10 off the price on Friday and Sunday nights promotion, which brought the price for the room down to £21 for the night. The Travelodge website said that the hotel has a […]

Companies Relying on Customer Inertia

I recently received the renewal letter for our SSE central heating cover, which includes an annual boiler service and breakdown cover, with zero excess payable on call outs. I was astounded that the price had increased from £19 to almost £22 a month. We hadn’t had any breakdown calls outs over the 12 month period […]

Bargain Room at Travelodge Helensburgh

In early January 2018, Travelodge ran a 50% off Friday and Saturday nights promotion. It was a bit frustrating, as several of the Travelodges at which I tried to book a room displayed a message saying that all the available codes had already been used at that hotel. I also observed that Sundays nights were […]
