Tips on saving money when shopping; through vouchers, cashbacks, special offers and sales.

Review of Honey Coupon Finder Extension

You can save some serious cash by using coupons or voucher codes when shopping online. I’ve saved up to 20% by using coupons and voucher codes. But, it can be such a pain finding the valid coupon code which offers the highest discount. It was so frustrating finding a code, which when entered on the […]

The Importance of Knowing Your Rights As a Consumer

I recently bought three new tyres for my car. It was really annoying as all four tyres were quite evenly worn and I thought I’d get at least another year out of them. However the discovery of a screw embedded in the side of a rear tyre put paid to my plans. I was advised that […]

How to Challenge a Parking Charge Notice

I was shocked to receive a £90 parking charge notice in the mail for overstaying the 90 minutes time limit in the B&M Bargains car park in Kerse Road Stirling. I recently moved home to Stirling. I was looking for things for the flat in B&M Bargains. I didn’t notice that there was a time […]

I’m Not Impressed by Waitrose

As Halifax Cashback Extras was offering 10% cashback on shopping at Waitrose, I decided to go to do some food shopping in Waitrose.

Why Discount Vouchers Are Better Than Cashback

I recently purchased a fridge freezer on the AO.com website. The price was £279. A0.com were offering £30 cashback on the model of Hisense fridge freezer which I decided to purchase.

Review of the Intex Downy Raised Airbed

I decided to buy a posh queen size airbed for guests. I didn’t want to buy another standard bed, as it would take up so much space. A good quality airbed seemed a sensible option, offering comfort, but requiring minimal storage facilities. My husband did quite a bit of research online to find airbeds with […]

Find the Cheapest Perfume

I have a weakness for expensive perfume.Lancome and Estee Lauder are my favourites. I’ve tried using cheaper perfumes, but I either didn’t like the scent and/or they didn’t have any staying power. Recently, I ended up buying perfume with what started with a quest to find the cheapest hydrocortisone cream. Annoyingly, the pharmacy website which […]
