If giving up chocolate wasn't one of your New Year's resolutions (or if you've already broken it), you can use the MSE Blagged code MSEBAGS online at Thorntons* by Sat 31 Jan to get 30 bags of chocolate (about 100g per bag) for £28, plus free delivery.
It's a mixed selection so you can't choose which bags you get, but as it usually costs £40 for a mixed bundle of 30 bags, or £3 each, it's a sweet offer if you're not after a particular type. There are 1,500 bundles available.
How good is this deal?
Although the bags normally cost £3 each, you can currently get them on offer at Thorntons for two for £5 (£75 for £30 bags), plus you'd normally have to pay £1 delivery. So at £28 for 30 bags, it's a substantial saving.
The bags are from Thorntons' Classic, Continental and Special Toffee ranges. Most of them are only available at Thorntons but we've seen a limited range of the Classic bags in other shops for about £1. If you were just after these bags, you might be better off buying them individually, as this deal would only get you a £2 saving. But if you want a bundle that includes the posh Continental and Special Toffee chocs too, then this deal could get you some great savings as you can't buy these elsewhere.
When we featured this deal back in September, user hoja0208 tweeted us to say they dished out the bags at their local Contact Teas party (a group that organises tea parties for isolated elderly people) and they went down a treat.
If you're thinking of saving these to use as gifts throughout the year, it's worth bearing in mind that Thorntons has said the best before dates will be the end of March at the earliest. So these could be good as Valentine's gifts or if you've got lots of birthdays coming up over the next couple of months.
Christmas may be a distant memory, but you can still grab a bargain if you're happy to eat festive-themed chocolate. Get the code from Voucher Box by Sat 31 Jan, and go online to Thorntons* to get 20% off everything, including Christmas hampers already discounted by up to 60% in its sale. Delivery's £3.95.
All the hampers include a selection of chocolate gift boxes and bags, and some include The Snowman chocolate models. Of course, as these are sale items the expiry dates won't be very far away, so you won't be able to use these hampers for stockpiling.
Hampers available in this deal:
We asked Thorntons, and it said that stock levels are good for all these hampers, but when we've featured similar deals in the past, they’ve been very popular. Go quick if you're after a particular hamper.
Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!
