Halfords logoFREE £15 winter car check at Halfords*Includes a free screenwash top-up (up to 2 litres)


Halfords is offering free winter car checks at all of its stores until the end of February 2017.

There's no need to book - simply drive to any Halfords* or Halfords Autocentre to get a free six-point car check (valued at about £15).

Checks via the free offer include:

  • Battery 
  • Bulbs 
  • Wiper blades 
  • Oil levels 
  • Screenwash levels, topped up for free
  • Windscreen chip check

Halfords says it takes about 15 minutes, and although you don't need to book in advance, you can book online if you want a specific time slot.

The free screenwash top-up can be as much as two litres, which would normally cost about £2ish in itself. Staff might try to upsell you (eg, oil, new wipers etc), so be on your guard - there's no obligation to act on any advice you're given, or to buy anything.

You can also get your tyres checked...

You can also get a free tyre safety check when you drive to a Halfords Autocentre (find your nearest). The service includes a pressure check and full tyre inspection, and Halfords says it shouldn't take any longer than about 10 minutes, but you should allow for up to an hour in case you have to wait. Again, there's no obligation to act on any advice.

We checked with Halfords and it told us you can have both the winter car check and the tyre safety check carried out on the same day. Unlike the winter car check, the tyre check is available at any time of year. There's no need to book in advance.

Halfords logoHalfords free bike workshops for kidsOver the half-term holiday at 415 UK branches

Limited slots

If you go online to Halfords, you can book your child a place on its free kids' bike workshops, which cover basic checks and safety tips for 7-11-year-olds. It's available at more than 415 of its 468 stores across the UK but it's worth booking early as slots are very limited, so go quick.

When are the next workshops?

  • Half-term holiday, Wed 19 Oct or Wed 26 Oct (depending on location) between 11am and 12pm.

Group sizes will be between 5-10 children. Halfords told us parents must stay with the youngsters during the workshop and they're encouraged to take part too. There's also a free goody bag for kids after completing the course which contains: a tool kit, slap-wrap, discount voucher and certificate.

Halfords logoHalfords: MoneySaving tips & tricks*Incl free Click & Collect, haggling & sales discounts


There are always ways to save money at Halfords*, so even if there isn't a cracking deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't cut your costs further. 

Ways to save include:

  • Free Click & Collect. Standard delivery's free at Halfords, but only when you spend £30 or more. If you're spending less, delivery's £2.99 - but you can avoid paying this by collecting your order from a Halfords store for free (find your nearest*).
  • Check for offers. See the Halfords offers page* to find seasonal offers and sales throughout the year. Of course, we'll feature the broader discounts, but you may find a slightly more niche offer on the Halfords page that works for what you're buying.
  • Try haggling. We polled 1,400 MoneySavers to find out in which shops hagglers have most success. Lots of high street retailers are known to give discounts to customers who ask, so it's always worth a punt. For more haggling tips, see our Haggle on the High Street guide.
  • Check similar retailers. If you're not committed to buying from Halfords, check for deals from other stores such as ArgosTesco Direct or Millets, where you may find there's a better deal.
  • Want more? Find out more shopping tricks in our Shopping Secrets guide.
  • Had a problem with Halfords? There's a free online tool you can use to draft, manage and if necessary escalate a complaint. It's called Resolver, and we like it so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice - you can use it to complain to Halfords*.

Halfords logoFREE bike pump or water bottleVia O2 app at Halfords stores


Smartphone users can get a free bike pump or 750ml High5 water bottle at Halfords, (norm £1 for the pump, bottle not usually sold at Halfords but £3ish elsewhere) via the O2 Priority app. Simply show the code from the app to staff at the checkout. It’s due to last until Fri 30 Sep but could end before then if all codes run out. 

O2 wasn’t able to tell us exactly how many codes are left, but they often run out quickly - so you'll need to go quick if you want this.

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 StoreGoogle Play for Android or Microsoft's Windows store. Open the app, search for Halfords and the offer (and your nearest participating store) should appear.

Once you redeem the offer, it'll give you a unique code which you need to show on your smartphone in store. Wait until you're at the checkout and have the product in your hand before selecting the 'use it now' option as your code could expire before you get to the front of the queue.

Not on O2? 

There's a sneaky way of getting O2 Priority 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 freebie. See our O2 Priority for EVERYONE! guide to find out how.

Halfords logo£27 MOT at Halfords Autocentre (norm £55)Book by 31 Aug, any test date


If your car's due an MOT, Halfords Autocentre will do it for £27.42 (norm £54.85), when you book online or at one of 300+ garages (find your nearest) by Wed 31 Aug.

Tests are in hourly slots, and opening times vary between branches but are typically 8.30am-5.30pm Mon-Fri , 8.30am-4.30pm on Saturdays and 10am-4pm on Sundays. Though you have to book by 31 Aug, there are no restrictions on when the test date has to be.

If your car's not in perfect nick... consider repair costs

Many cars fail first time, so while a test may be cheap it's repairs that'll dent your wallet. While not always cheapest for MOTs, you may want to consider a council-run centre instead.

As these don't do repairs, they've no incentive to fail you (more info in our Cheap MOT guide).

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.
