Swagbucks logoEarn £5 Swagbucks, get £15 Amazon gift card*Newbies only. Fill in surveys and search online to earn

60 days left

Swagbucks is a site which pays you virtual bucks to answer daily polls, watch videos, play games, search online and more. These bucks can then be cashed in for gift cards, PayPal credit or other rewards.

Usually you get only a few swagbucks for registering, but newbies who register via this MSE Blagged Swagbucks* link will get bonus points worth £10 if they earn £5 of points (849 Swagbucks - we reckon about four hours' 'work') by Sun 31 Jan 2016. So that’s a total of £15 in gift cards to spend at Amazon, M&S, House of Fraser, iTunes, Pizza Express and more. Warning: When registering through the above link, don’t select the option to enter an additional sign-up bonus code as this will invalidate the MSE sign-up offer.

How do I earn swagbucks?

Most surveys give you an average of 70 bucks and Swagbucks says the average user earns 200 bucks per day for about an hour's work (though this varies). Surveys can take up to 20 minutes each. See the Paid Surveys guide for full tips on Swagbucks.

How do I get my free £10 gift card?

Once you’ve earned 849 swagbucks (£5 worth) by Sun 31 Jan 2016, an additional 1,698 swagbucks (worth £10) will be transferred to the 'my gift cards' section of your account within 10 days.

You'll have a total of 2547 bucks (worth £15) in your account so you can visit the 'rewards store' to choose which gift card you want. The gift card will then arrive within 10 working days, either by post or via email in the case of voucher codes. You can also convert your earnings into PayPal cash but it costs more Swagbucks (999 Swagbucks = £5 PayPal).

Most gift cards can then be redeemed in store or online within a year, though check yours to see exactly when and where you can use it as it varies per retailer.

MSE Anthony says:

The last time we featured one of these deals, I signed up. The easiest method I found of notching up bucks was installing the Swagbucks search bar and using it whenever I’d normally use Google. By doing this, as well as completing a couple of surveys, I met the minimum required to get the bonus within three weeks of joining.

You do not need to give any payment information when you sign up.

Ikea logoBuy £25 Ikea Xmas tree & get £20 voucherGet a tree and use voucher in Jan/Feb

From 26 Nov

Ikea Christmas treesIf you buy a £25 real Christmas tree from your nearest Ikea, you'll be given a £20 voucher to spend at any participating store between Mon 18 Jan and Sun 7 Feb next year.

Officially, it's on until Wed 23 Dec, but if previous years are anything to go by, this'll be tree-mendously popular - so go quick if you want one. The only stores not participating are Croydon and Norwich.

The trees are all of the same variety (Abies Nordmanniana) and Ikea says the tallest ones are about 170cm (5ft 7in), but they do vary in size.

There's no Christmas tree delivery option, so do think about how you'll get it home.

Shop at Ikea Cardiff or Wembley?

At the Cardiff store, trees will be available a day earlier than elsewhere (Wed 25 Nov) and the offer will end a few days sooner (Sun 20 Dec), if there are any left by then. Cardiff vouchers are only valid when you spend £70 or more between Mon 18 Jan and Sun 7 Feb.

If you buy at Wembley, your £20 voucher will only be valid at Wembley (until Sun 27 Mar).

Three packs of greetings cards usually cost £35.44 (including £5.47 delivery) - so you can save £22.47 using this code. Great if you’re looking to send personalised photo cards this Christmas.

How to make a portrait card:

  • Add your photo to the bottom section of the card.
  • Click rotate once, so the top of the photo is on the right hand side.
  • You'll have to visualise your card in portrait as it doesn't change from landscape on screen. Make sure you're completely happy that it'll open correctly before you buy - you don't want to end up with cards that open backwards.

On Tue 10 Nov, we found 79 Yankee Candles in the 3for2, including the following:

Now TV logo'Free' £7 Now TV sports pass (buy £3 of Pringles)Buy two tubes at Tesco to get a day's free Sky Sports

Tesco only

Pringles free Now TV offerYou can get a 'free' Now TV Sky Sports Day Pass (norm £6.99) when you buy two 190g tubes of Pringles at Tesco (on offer at two for £3 until Tue 29 Sep). It'll work for both new and existing users of Now TV - a service a bit like Netflix, allowing you to stream Sky programmes, movies and sports.

Once you've claimed it - one pass per household - you can use the free Sky Sports pass whenever you like until it expires at the end of June 2016. So you can either use it straight away or save it until there's a specific event or big match you really want to watch.

How to get it

1. Buy any two special packs of 190g Pringles (see image) in original, salt and vinegar, Texas BBQ or sour cream and onion flavours. The promotional packs are only available at Tesco. They are £2.48 each, but until Tue 29 Sep you can get two for £3.

2. There's a unique code printed on the inside of each tube's foil lid. Enter both at before 11.59pm on Thu 31 Mar 2016.

3. Your free Sky Sports Day Pass should appear on screen as a digital voucher with a code. A copy should also be sent to your email address.

4. Go to the Now TV* website and sign up, or sign into your account if you already have one, then click the 'Apply Voucher' button to activate your pass. It's only valid for 24 hours from the moment you activate it. You can apply the voucher code anytime you like before 11.59pm on Thu 30 Jun 2016.

IMPORTANT: To get this, you'll need to create a Now TV account and this involves entering your card details online. Now TV says you'll only be charged if you decide to add a paid subscription.

How good is this deal?

If you're a sports fan and you'd probably buy them anyway, it's worth grabbing some Pringles to get the freebie. Basically, it can save you paying £6.99 the next time there's an event you want to stream live with a Now TV Sky Sports pass. But it's only good if your broadband's suitable for video streaming.

Full terms and conditions are available on the Pringles website.

Tools and decorations

Wilko has a cheap and cheerful everyday value range, but stock is limited - so go quick. Items include:

Delivery is £3.50 or you can collect from a store for free. 

Lidl has a few baking items in stores from Thu 8 Oct (find your nearest), but we've seen items sell out fast in the past, so go quick if there's something you want. Items include:

Stand mixers

The use of the Kenwood KMix mixer by contestants in this series is causing a bit of a stir, with Bake Off fans favouring the KitchenAid mixer used in previous series. Whatever your preference, we've found the best prices on a mixer for every budget:

  • £100 stand mixer* at Wilko (in cream* or black*) with free delivery. Our MSE forumites were big fans of this mixer when it went down to £80 in 2013 and rate its performance.

Dogs Trust logoFree microchipping for dogsBook an appointment at a Dogs Trust centre or event

Eng, Sco, Wal & NI

The law's changing - from April 2016, all dogs in England, Wales and Scotland must be microchipped. It's already compulsory in Northern Ireland. While this normally costs £15-£20 at a local vets, you can get it done for free (please donate if you can) when you book an appointment with the charity Dogs Trust.

Microchipping your dog (a tiny implant about the size of a grain of rice) stores your details as its owner on an electronic database, which makes it much easier to reunite you with your pooch should he/she ever get lost. As long as they're at least eight weeks old, you can have dogs of any breed or size microchipped.

If there's no Dogs Trust centre near you, or if you can't get an appointment, see for free microchipping events happening all over the UK.

MSE Anthony says:

A great freebie for dog owners, but Dogs Trust is a charity so donations are gratefully received.

More info

There are no restrictions on how many dogs can be microchipped per owner, as long as you book an appointment in advance. The microchipping process takes about 10 minutes to complete and Dogs Trust says it won't cause your dog any lasting discomfort.

The tiny implant includes a unique ID number that's stored alongside the owners name and address, which means if your dog goes missing, it's easier to trace as the code can be read by radio-wave scanners. For more information, see the Dogs Trust Microchipping page.

Most vets would normally charge £15-£20 for a dog to be microchipped. Some pet shops also offer microchipping, for example, Pets At Home and Pets Corner both charge £14.99.

You can get it done for £10 at the PDSA (a separate charity from Dogs Trust) if you receive council tax or housing benefit, or the housing element of the universal credit. Look out for discounted weekends and deals as you occasionally get it even cheaper.

Boots logoBoots discounts via app*Download app and use offers in stores


If you have a Boots Advantage Card, you can get personalised offers and discounts at Boots* by downloading the Boots app. The offers vary for each person, as they are tailored to your shopping habits.

How to get the app and offers

  • Download the Boots app* via the App Store or Google Play.
  • Go to 'My offers' and sign in using your Advantage Card number. This links your card to the app and you can then select offers by loading them onto your card.
  • Choose the offers you'd like to use in 'Offers just for me' and select 'Load offer to Advantage Card'.
  • Next time you use your Advantage Card, the cashier or self-checkout will ask you if you want to use the offer in that transaction. 

What can I get?

These are some examples of offers we've seen when trying the app (of course as the offers are personalised, not everyone will receive the same ones):

  • £1.50 off when you spend £15 or more in a single transaction

The best thing about this deal is that the offers usually work on top of other in-store discounts. I managed to get a £2 Nivea shower gel for 80p by using a '20% off' deal from the app on top of a half-price in-store offer.

Morrisons logoMorrisons 'free' petrol? Via extreme couponingBuy selected gift cards and get 1p/L off fuel for every £10


This is an awesome bit of extreme couponing - play Morrisons' Fuel Saver to the max and you could potentially get a 'free' tank of petrol.

What is Morrisons' Fuel Saver?

The Morrisons' Fuel Saver deal gets you 1p/litre off petrol, diesel or LPG for every £10 of gift cards bought in its stores.

There are 51 retailers to buy gift cards for, including Homebase, Debenhams, Currys, PC World, Next, House of Fraser, Halfords, iTunes, TK Maxx, Oasis, Boots, Warehouse and Waterstones. The offer doesn't include Morrisons' own gift cards.

How do I get free petrol?

If there's a large purchase you were going to make anyway - eg, £500 on a computer at PC World or a garden shed at Homebase - get it via buying the gift cards and you'll bag 50p/litre off.

If you bought £1,500 of gift cards, it'd effectively make a £1.15/litre tank 'free'. Morrisons has told us there's no limit to the amount you can spend on the gift cards, but you won't get any change from using your petrol voucher. So make sure you split any amount above this into a second purchase to get a voucher for a second fill-up. Petrol vouchers are valid for 63 days from the issue date.

Important: Don't buy gift cards unless you'll use them straight away, see 'more info' below for details.

Use gift cards quickly

Gift cards are non-refundable, and it isn't a good idea to put money on the card to drip-spend over six months. Though most of those mentioned here are big, safe companies, if the firm goes bust you'll probably lose the cash. So ensure you minimise the time between buying and redemption.

It's also worth noting that third party retailers (Morrisons in this case) don't have any responsibility to refund you if a gift card's retailer goes into administration. See the Beware Gift Vouchers MSE News story. Gift cards are generally valid for about two years, but always check.

Boots logo£1 Boots meal deal*Every Monday via app. Sandwich/fruit salad, snack & drink


Smartphone users can get a Boots meal deal every Monday from 10am to 3pm for £1 via the O2 Priority Moments app. Simply show the code from the app to staff at the checkout. 

O2 has been offering £1 Monday meal deals for other retailers including Domino’s Pizza and Upper Crust for more than a year, but the Boots £1 lunch only launched on Mon 29 Jun.

The Boots meal deal is normally £3.29 (£3.79 in London) and includes:

  • One main including: sandwich (norm up to £3.25ish each), sushi (norm £3ish), fruit salad (norm £2.50ish)
  • One snack including: crisps (norm up to £1.50ish), fruit (norm £1.50ish), small sushi (norm £1.30ish)
  • One drink including: Naked fruit smoothie (450ml, norm £2.50ish), Innocent super Smoothie (360ml, norm £2.35ish), Coca-cola (500ml, norm £1.35ish) 

Prices may vary in every store, but at the Boots nearest MSE Towers, we picked up a BLT, prawn mayo and chicken salad triple sandwich, Walkers sunbites crackers and dips and a Naked fruit smoothie. Individually it would cost £7.25, or £3.79 in the normal Boots meal deal, so £1 for the lot is a cracking saving.

How to get it

If you're on O2 and you haven't got the app already, you can download it for free from Apple's App Store, the Android Marketplace, Microsoft's Windows store or Blackberry World. Open the app, search for 'Boots' and the offer should appear.

Once you redeem the offer, it'll give you a unique code which you need to show on your smartphone in store at Boots. The deal will only appear on your app on Mondays, so you will not see it on any other days. 

Warning: If you click accept you'll only have five minutes to redeem the offer, so make sure staff at the checkout are ready and know how to accept the offer before you tap 'Use it now'.

Not on O2? 

There's a sneaky way of getting Priority Moments offers even if you're not an O2 customer. It might be too late for you to get this deal, but you can get prepared for the next O2 Priority Moments freebie. See our O2 Priority Moments for EVERYONE! guide to find out how.

Amazon logoReclaim (and listen to) lost Amazon music*Stream old CDs/vinyl or turn them into MP3s for free


Buy CDs or vinyl from Amazon and its Autorip service* lets you stream or download the MP3 version for free, yet this can also apply to music you've bought from Amazon at any time since 1999.

You can potentially recover more than a decade of forgotten music - from CDs you've lost, damaged or thrown away, and MP3s you downloaded that have since been wiped from your electronic devices.

How do I reclaim my old music?

Check your Amazon Music* library to see if you've any past albums available to stream and download. Bear in mind, it can take a while for Autorip to locate your music. It's also worth noting only CDs and vinyl with the Autorip logo displayed alongside them are eligible to be reclaimed.

The biggest musical treasure trove at MSE Towers belonged to MSE Darryl, who had 150 albums going back 13 years - they took about 10 minutes to get.

Success stories from the MSE Forum:

"Wow! 11 albums equating to 118 songs. How fab is that? Thanks MSE" - Elliesmum

"21 albums and 386 songs - brilliant!" - Shezzieh

"Thought this was brilliant, then realised I'd bought the mother-in-law a Susan Boyle CD last year... ugh" - GingerJuice (who clearly got a lot more than they bargained for)

The odd CD or vinyl album might slip through the net. Amazon currently has more than 350,000 titles and is always expanding its collection.

Free Postcode Lottery logoFREE daily cash prize drawRegister email & postcode for a chance to win £150+ EVERY DAY


The Free Postcode Lottery is a fun competition that's been running every day since April 2011. MSE's Deals team are all big fans (we even have a winner in our midst!) and the daily cash jackpot was increased to £150 (from £100) at the start of July.

How does it work?

Simply register your email address and postcode (over 18s only) online at Free Postcode Lottery, where a registered postcode is selected randomly at 12 noon each day for the £150 jackpot. You'll have to check online before noon the following day to claim it - the prize goes up by £150 each day it's unclaimed and the pot is split if multiple winners with the same postcode claim.

The biggest prize claimed since the site started is £755.71. You get a bonus of 1p every day you check the site, which is added to your winnings (if you're ever lucky enough).

How do I collect any winnings?

If you win the main draw (ie, your postcode comes up and you check the site that day), a large "collect" button will appear. Simply press the button and your winnings can be paid into a PayPal account, or you can opt for Amazon vouchers instead.

You'll also have the option to "double & donate" which means double your winnings will go to charity.

What MoneySavers have to say:

Everyone who's tried this at MSE Towers loves it, and there are lots of success stories in the forum. For example, purple45 said: "I won the Free Postcode Lottery a couple of months ago, nearly £500!"

bhafc810 said "I won £120 last year" and grannybiker said: "I've won and had the money transferred by PayPal the same evening."

Will I get spammed?

You automatically get opted in to receive a single reminder email each day, but you can unsubscribe at any time (click "unsubscribe" at the bottom of the email). Or you can leave the lottery at any time via this unsubscribe link.

Links to other sites (surveys, competitions and charities) and user comments that appear on Free Postcode Lottery are all checked out before they appear. Even so, it's always worth checking sites before entering any details and reading the full T&Cs for yourself.

How does it make money?

Free Postcode Lottery is funded by adverts, which appear all over the website along with links to other freebies and survey sites. You don't have to click them, they make the site money just by being there.

The site's owner, Chris Holbrook, has assured us that your email address will NEVER be passed on to any third parties and you won't ever be required to enter your card details.

MSE Anthony says:

The MSE Deals team LOVES this site, especially MSE Debs who won a £20 Amazon voucher just 42 days after joining. (This was a while ago, when the prize pot was a lot smaller!)

More info

There's also a couple of smaller games to play - including the Stackpot, which gives you a chance of winning £10 if your postcode appears in a list (updated twice daily), and the Survey Draw, which you can enter by answering a quick and easy market research question.

One registration per person. The site owner reserves the right to withhold winnings if he can't be sure the entry is legitimate.

Poundworld logoHidden branded £1 chocs - mystery SOLVEDIn-store only - cut price Cadbury/Quality Street


About 75% of what we do (OK, maybe just MSE Charlotte) is browsing shops for bargains and looking for/eating chocolate. While browsing the confectionery aisle in Poundworld the other day, a mysterious bag stood out  - Turner's Chocolate Assortment.

It promised "An assortment of high quality mis-shape chocolate" - all for £1. Brill! There were three types of chocolates in our bag (see pictures below):

  • Four Cadbury (notice the 'C') chocolate caramel pieces.
  • Seven barrel-shaped chocolates with a Cadbury Creme Egg fondant filling.
  • We couldn't figure out what the 11 hard, rectangular toffee ones were. But the chocolate tasted like Cadbury's...

The chocolates were a bit bashed up, but still tasted great.

We asked Poundworld about this chocolatey mystery. It said: "The chocolates are in date, just slightly mis-shaped mixed Quality Street, Roses etc." Mystery solved - we've better detective skills than Columbo!


More info

A bag of the mystery chocolate at 250g is £1. The cheapest box of Quality Street at Asda is £3 for 350g at Asda - 250g is £2.14, so that's the sort of discount you'll get. The excitement of the mystery is free.

Lego logoFREE £5 Lego for kids EVERY MONTHWith in-store Lego workshop


Right. Lego's definitely the best kids' toy, and we know a few adults who are fans too. We won't hear any arguing that it's Barbie, Playdoh or Xbox - Lego wins it hands down (OK, OK, that's just my opinion - MSE Charlotte).

But there's an issue which we can't block out - Lego can be SO expensive. So hopefully this deal will help you out.

If you're between six and 14 (sorry grown-ups, this one isn't for you, so please let your kids know!), go into your nearest official Lego store (there's more info on where below) on the first Thursday of every month between 4-6pm to take part in the Lego Mini Build.

Get there as soon as you can, as stock is limited to 200-300 models per store (depending on size and location), and it's first come, first served. Staff  will  show your kids how to make the model, which Lego told us is worth around £5 (but it's not for sale). Once it's been made - it should take about 10-15 mins - the kids can take it home for free.

The models are different each month, and you don't know what you're going to get till you get in there.

More info

Participating stores include: Bluewater, Brighton, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester Arndale, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Sheffield Meadowhall, Watford and both London Westfield centres.

O2 logoO2 Priority for EVERYONE!Not an O2 customer? We've found a loophole


O2 Priority is a deals app for O2 smartphone users. It tends to run bespoke offers, which we think are subsidised from O2's marketing budget, so it sometimes has deals you can't get elsewhere. Deals may not be the same for everyone, as they're often based on your location.

O2 users can download it for free from Apple's App StoreAndroid Marketplace or Blackberry. If you're not on O2, there's a trick for you to get it on your smartphone too.

Not on O2? How to get it

O2 says anyone with an O2 mobile – including Pay and Go, Pay Monthly and business customers – is eligible to get it. So if you've ANY unlocked phone, it's easy.

1. Order a free Pay & Go Go Go Sim card from O2. Insert the Sim into your smartphone and activate it free (you need an unlocked mobile handset).

2. Connect to wi-fi, and download the O2 Priority app (Android, iOS/Blackberry).

3. Insert the Sim everytime you want to check for new deals. The app is meant to disappear if you insert other Sims, but we've tried it on a few unlocked handsets, and the app's stayed and is still usable.

John Lewis logoJohn Lewis free tea/coffee and cake every month?Sign up to free John Lewis loyalty card in-store or online


MSE UPDATE 11.30am Tue 16 Sep: John Lewis has changed its T&Cs, so going forward not everybody will receive the free tea and cake vouchers. We've asked John Lewis outright who will and who won't get the vouchers and it won't confirm.The best we can say is it's luck of the draw. This will affect both new and existing sign-ups to the John Lewis loyalty card. Read the John Lewis loyalty card news story for full info.

Get a free John Lewis loyalty card and you can get FREE tea/coffee and cake, every month!

  • John Lewis has a free loyalty card, which you can use online and in-store at its 42 shops in England, Scotland and Wales. It doesn't work like the usual ones where you get loyalty points - instead, you’re entered into prize draws and get rewards.
  • Either sign up online on the John Lewis website (click 'create an account now' in the pop-up box) or apply in-store for your loyalty card.
  • Once registered, you'll be sent a welcome pack containing vouchers - each voucher is valid in the month stated on the front. (We think it'll take up to four weeks to get your vouchers.)
  • One of these rewards is free tea (any hot drink) and cake EVERY MONTH. A pot of tea's £1.90, coffee's £2.25, cakes range from £1.75 - £3.50. You can go at any time (once a month).
  • It's available at John Lewis Place to Eat, Espresso Bar, Mall Café, Café and coffee shops. It can't be redeemed at other firms' food outlets within John Lewis, nor is it valid at Waitrose branches, apart from the Waitrose Café in Ipswich.

MSE Charlotte says:

WARNING! Gratuitous pictures of cake coming up...

When we first wrote this, we didn't have all the cake-based info. We don't do things by halves here at MSE, so even though it was a terrible inconvenience, I trudged all the way (at least a five-minute walk) to 'research' what was on offer.

My card STILL hasn't arrived yet - c'mon John Lewis! (It must be busy making super-cute Christmas adverts...) So I got some tea and cake and put it on my expenses instead. The things we do for you!

Here are some pics of what I found and what they cost.

Chocolate cake - £3.50
Scone, cream and jam - £3.60
Victoria sponge - £3.50
Muffins - £2.50

Spotify logoMillions of FREE music tracks on your mobile / tabletYou can now use Spotify FREE on mobiles (with ads). Was £10/mth


Previously, to get online music streaming service Spotify on your phone or tablet, you had to pay £9.99 a month for Spotify Premium. Now that's changed - you can get it on these devices for free.

How it worked before:

1. You could get it free when online (with ads) on your desktop computer, but NOT at all on mobiles and tablets (EVERYONE found this really frustrating).


2. You could pay £9.99 a month for Spotify Premium, for your desktop, tablet and phone. This meant you could download music to listen to offline and have no ads.

What's changed?

You can now create a free account (it'll have ads, but it's not that bad) to use on your desktop AND on your mobile and tablet on Android and iOS, via the free app. You can only listen to tracks and playlists when you're online (only Premium users can download and listen offline).

If you're subscribed to Premium and now prefer the free version, you can cancel at any time.

MSE Charlotte says:

Spotify has all the music you could imagine (unless you're into Oasis and The Beatles).

However, it's recently added Led Zeppelin's back catalogue, making it the only music streaming service to include the Rock Gods. I've a Whole Lotta Love for that (genuinely really sorry...).

Waitrose logoWaitrose free tea/coffee EVERY daySimply get its free loyalty card to take your pick of daily hot drinks


Sign up for a myWaitrose loyalty card (click 'Join myWaitrose now' on the left-hand green bar) and get a free regular hot tea or coffee in-store every day from the self service machine. Choose from Americano, cappuccino, latte, tea, mocha or espresso (decaf options are also available in some stores).

If you haven't got one already, sign up for a myWaitrose card using the link above and you'll receive it within five weeks. However, as soon as you've signed up, you can register your details and print a paper version, which you can show in-store to get this offer. Then simply walk in and swipe your card.

It's worth noting you're no longer allowed to get your free drink in the cafe unless you're buying something as well. To get round this, use the self-service machines - where you'll be able to get the freebie as normal without spending any money.

More info
One free drink per member, per day. Offer excludes hot chocolate and isn't valid at Costa concessions, petrol filling stations, Shell and Welcome Break. Can't be used with other cafe or hot drink offers, or the cafe loyalty card.

Show your card at a manned till or scan it at a quick pay station.

Millie's Cookies logo£40 for 144 Millie's cookies (usually 99p each)Use 12 vouchers throughout the year


Go to your nearest Millie's Cookies store and get a gift box for £39.99. Inside you'll find 12 vouchers, each for a box of 12 cookies. This is called "year's worth of cookies for £40" offer - but we couldn't see any ads for the promotion in our local store, and had to ask for it by name.

You can take the vouchers to any Millie's Cookies throughout the year.

MSE Charlotte says:

We think you need a few more cookies for a year's worth! Millie's says you can't use more than one voucher at the same time at the same store. But you could spread your cookie-buying out across different days, or use all the same vouchers on the same day but at different stores.

But confusingly, the staff at our local branch said we can use our vouchers however we want - even all at once. So it's worth asking your nearest store.

More info
Only original vouchers will be accepted. Not to be used in conjunction with any other discount or voucher.

Amazon logoFree Amazon Discount Finder toolUse it to uncover Amazon's secret bargain basements


Amazon often offers 75% and better reductions, yet it directs people to other areas, sending them to higher profit margin products instead. This tool manipulates Amazon's web links to display all heavily-reduced bargains.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
