We aim to ensure all the vouchers in this section can be used by everyone. They're checked with the company's press office where possible (unless stated).
Go online to home furnishings retailer Habitat* and enter the code SANTA25 at the checkout by 11.59pm on Tue 25 Nov for a 25% discount on all Christmas lighting and decorations. Standard delivery’s £4.95.
If you’re shopping in store, either at Habitat or a Homebase with a Habitat concession, the 25% discount will be applied automatically at the till.
Enter the MSE Blagged code 30OFF online at the Hotpoint factory outlet* by Thu 18 Dec to get 30% off all items in its clearance store. The store sells mostly discontinued Indesit and Hotpoint large appliances, including cookers, washing machines and fridges.
While these are discontinued at Hotpoint, some of them are still on sale elsewhere for sustainably more (see analysis below).
Delivery's free and the site also offers a free removal and disposal service for your old appliance, just select this option during the checkout process. There's a charge if you want an engineer to connect your new appliance though, which ranges from £8.40 - £60 depending on the type of appliance.
These are end of line models and stock's very limited - once it's gone it's gone, so go quick if you're after a particular item.
As it's a clearance site, not all the appliances can be found elsewhere which makes comparisons tricky. We’ve found a few of these clearance items for similar prices at other online retailers, so the code is what makes this deal hot. Of course do check prices and compare for yourself before you buy.
Bargains we found on Mon 17 Nov include:
All appliances on the site have a one-year guarantee for both parts and labour. Hotpoint also offers free replacement parts for its appliances for 10 years, and Indesit offers parts for five years, but only if you get its engineers to fit them at a standard price. You might be able to get a cheaper quote including parts elsewhere, so do check.
Audible enables subscribers to download and listen to audio books on smartphones, Kindles, iPods, mp3 players or computers.
It usually costs £7.99 a month to join, but if you go via this MSE Blagged Audible* link by Sun 23 Nov and you're not already a subscriber, you can get a three-month trial for 99p a month. It’s full-price after that, but you can cancel in the third month before your direct debit comes out. There's no need to enter a code, the link should automatically give you 99p membership, just in case it doesn't the code is 99NOVMEM.
It allows you to download ANY audiobook once a month from its 100,000+ titles, including:
You need to create an Audible account or sign into your Amazon account (it's an Amazon company). This code is for new members to the subscription service only – so if you've bought a book as a one-off in the past without joining a membership plan, you can still get it. When you've purchased the trial, download the Audible app and log in.
Important: You'll need to set up a direct debit. You can cancel through your account once signed in or email email@example.com or call 0800 469 2455.
Shop in the clearance section of the online Nike store* and you'll usually get discounts of up to 30% off full-price items. However, until Mon 24 Nov you can boost that discount with an extra 20% off sale items by using the code ENERGY20. Delivery's currently free until Sun 21 Dec (usually £4.50).
The clearance section includes womenswear, menswear, kidswear and sports equipment. As this code is only valid on clearance, stock is likely to be very limited.
Using the code makes the Nike store the cheapest place to buy some items. Bargains we found using the code on Mon 17 Nov include Air Jordan 1 Mid trainers for £60.70 (RRP £95, next cheapest we found online £86), Winger II men's tracksuits for £39.20 (RRP £70, next cheapest £44) and women's training t-shirts for £16 (RRP £25, next cheapest £24.99).
Enter the code AFF520 online at fashion retailer Matalan* by 11.59pm on Sun 23 Nov and you'll get 20% off full-price items. Delivery's £3.95 or you can collect from a store for free. Can't be used on sale items or with other offers.
Enter the MSE Blagged code 5MSE25 at online gifts retailer I Want One Of Those* by Sun 30 Nov and you'll get £5 off when you spend £25 or more. Delivery's free. Can't be used on electronics or consoles, entertainment, merchandise, LEGO, photo gifts and experience days.
I Want One Of Those sells a variety of quirky and novelty gifts for him, her, kids, pets and the home, including Subbuteo bottle openers, retro doughnut makers and more.
Enter the code NOVFC20 online at fashion retailer French Connection* by 11.59pm on Sun 23 Nov and you'll get 20% off. Delivery's £3.95 or you can collect from a store for free. The code's valid on everything except home items, gift cards and some specific products. Full details in the 'more info' section below.
You can also get the offer in stores with a voucher from this week's free Stylist magazine, available on Wed 19 Nov. You’ll find the mag in French Connection stores all week, as well as being distributed on Wednesday at tube and train stations in London, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle. The in-store voucher is also valid until Sun 23 Nov.
French Connection has told us this is the last offer it's running before Christmas, so it's likely to be a popular one.

Buy a copy of this week's Grazia magazine (£2, Kim Kardashian's on the front, dated Nov 24) and on page 176 there's a code to enter online at women's fashion retailers Monsoon* or Accessorize* (delivery's free) and a voucher to take to a store. Both deals end on Mon 24 Nov
The code and voucher can't be used on promotional products, sale items, Monsoon Home items, Monsoon Boutique items, gift cards, with other offers or at airport stores.
If you're buying the magazine just for the voucher, the £2 cost means it's only worth it if you're spending at least £8 at Monsoon or Accessorize.
Parcel2Go is a parcel delivery middleman both for the UK and worldwide, which bulk-buys postage slots from big delivery agencies, then sells them to the public. Newbies to Parcel2Go* can enter the MSE Blagged code OFFERFREE to get £10 off deliveries anywhere in the world. Even better there’s no minimum spend, so if delivery is £10 or under (which it often is for smaller, lighter UK parcels), it’ll be free.
It’s valid until Sun 30 Nov, or until 100,000 codes are redeemed, whichever's first. It's one per household for delivery anywhere, from Tunbridge Wells to Timbuktu. Prices are listed without VAT, so do factor that in.
The offer expires Sun 30 Nov, but depending on which courier you select, the parcel could be collected by the courier up to two weeks after then - you get to choose a date. As long as the order is booked by Sun 30 Nov you'll get the discount.
Who will deliver my parcel?
Couriers Parcel2Go lists include: MyHermes, Hermes, Collect+, Parcelforce, Yodel, City Link, UPS, TNT and more. You’ll be able to choose which courier you want to use before you confirm delivery.
You're getting the same service as if you went direct via the courier. However, it’s Parcel2Go which will deal with enquiries and sort out any compensation claims.
It includes a standard level of compensation with every parcel, which is up to £20 or £50 depending on the courier. If your parcel is worth more than £50 you can take out extra cover. But you can’t use the £10 off code to get a discount on the cover, you’ll need to pay for it separately.
Go with a delivery company you've heard of and are happy to use. If the difference is only a few pennies, it may be better to go with the established company with a reputation than a totally unknown name.
For an idea of customer service, see an MSE poll we ran in January on which firms have the best and worst feedback. Also see our Cheap Parcel Delivery forum discussion & Cheap Parcel Delivery guide for more help.
Do check if your item is covered by its compensation scheme, not all items are.
Is Parcel2Go any good?
We've featured Parcel2Go before and feedback was mixed – some people were very happy with the service they received, while others experienced problems. It's worth noting that the majority of these problems were with customer services and speed of response and not delivery times. Because of this, we’ve asked Parcel2Go to set up a dedicated email address for MSE users. Should any issues arise contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we hope everyone gets this deal as planned, we've arranged with Parcel2Go to put extra measures in place for you, please be aware that nothing is ever 100% guaranteed. Please let us know how you get on in the MSE Forum.
The price you pay does not include any duties, customs or taxes that the delivery may incur. The code is not valid on parcels being sent between foreign countries.
If you're sending more than one parcel to the same address, the £10 discount will apply to both parcels. However, if you're sending more than one parcel to different addresses the discount will only apply to the cheapest parcel. Door-to-door services only (so excludes shop drop offs).
Take an unwanted toy to your nearest Argos or Barnardo’s shop by Tue 25 Nov and you'll receive a £5 off £35 toys voucher, to spend on items in the 'toys and games' section till Christmas Eve. Argos will then donate your unwanted toy(s) to Barnardo's shops for the children’s charity to sell on.
You can't get the discount when you buy online, but you can reserve your item(s) online and then get the discount when you pay in-store.
The toy you donate doesn't have to have been bought from Argos, but Argos has told us it needs to be in a "saleable condition". Barnardo's also says on its website that it will "accept any toy in any condition, although the better the condition, the most funds it can raise towards Barnardo’s vital work." One voucher per donation (not per toy).
For more information on the scheme please see the campaign page.
If you've never shopped there before, enter the code TDX-HTRW online at Tesco Direct* by Mon 24 Nov and you'll get £10 off when you spend £50 or more. Delivery's £3 or you can collect in-store for free. Can't be used on clothing, items sold by Tesco partners or with other offers.
Sassy Bloom is a gift box subscription service, aimed at expectant mums and those with babies up to 24 months. Each box contains a selection of baby products, such as clothes, toys and bottles, tailored to the baby's age, gender and stage of development.
Usually they cost £29 each, but we've blagged MoneySavers a deal to get a box for £9 via a subscription (that you can cancel). As that can be a bit of a pain, we've also arranged a second deal with no subscription that gets you a one-off gift box for £19.
Option 1: £9 box via a subscription
Go via this Sassy Bloom* link and select the 'Get Sassy Monthly' option. Use the code MSE20 by Sun 7 Dec and you'll get your first box for £9. If you don't want to continue your subscription, you can cancel after the first month. You'll need to wait until your box has arrived, and cancel before the 15th day of the following month.
Option 2: £19 one-off box - no subscription
If you just want one box, and you're not sure you'll remember to cancel, you can get a one-off gift box for £19. Go via this Sassy Bloom* link and select the 'One-off Gift Sassy Box'. Use the code MSE10 by Sun 7 Dec at the checkout.
What do the boxes contain?
You input your baby's age (or specify unborn) and the box's contents are selected accordingly on your behalf. We did some price comparisons on three different boxes and found the contents of the box amounted to £36-£53, depending on the age of your baby.
Sassy Bloom is a relatively new company and we haven't featured any deals from them before. Please do leave feedback (good or bad) in our Sassy Bloom forum discussion.
If you're new to Tesco Grocery* you can get £15 off your first £60 online shop when you enter the code XX3FP6 by Wed 31 Dec. There's no limit on the number of redemptions on this code, and the checkout gives until 31/12/14. There are a few exclusions - more info on those below. Only one code can be used per household.
What counts as a newbie?
If you've never shopped online at Tesco Grocery you're a newbie. Even if you've already set up an account, if you haven't shopped online, you count as a newbie.
Print a coupon from Purina Pro Plan's page to get £3 off Duo Délice dog food by 31 Dec 2014. The coupon’s for packs of 2.5kg or larger. We found the cost of the 2.5kg pack to be around £14.95. Can’t be used with other offers.
Follow these quick steps:
We have little feedback on Wrapp but it was founded in 2011 and its board directors include the co-founders of Skype and LinkedIn so it has decent backing. Of course, as you don’t need to give payment details for this deal, the risk is minimal.
To cover the cost of p&p, you'd need to spend £40+ with the code, otherwise buying in-store's cheaper.
Go to the Amazon Discount Finder and choose your department. Next, pick your discount and price range and choose whether you want free delivery. The tool will then generate a bespoke page full of discounts which fit your search terms.
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.
