Ciate logo139 of Ciat nail polish for 17*Via our Blagged code for advent calendar

Expired

We know buying an advent calendar in January may seem strange, but bear with us here as it’s often cheaper to buy beauty products in gift sets and advent calendars such as this to use throughout the year. With our code, you can get £139ish of Ciaté nail polish for £17ish.

Enter the MSE Blagged code JANSAVING online at Ciaté* to get its 2017 nail polish advent calendar, with 22 mostly mini polishes, nail glitter and a nail file, for £16.94 delivered - £13.49 plus £3.45 delivery. Ciaté normally charges £54.95 delivered (£50 plus £4.95 delivery), but buying the items separately would cost £139ish.

The offer ends at 11.59pm on Tue 23 Jan or when all 1,500 sets go, whichever’s sooner - so go quick if you want to nail this deal.

The calendar contains:

  • 19 mini 'Gelology' nail polishes, 5ml - norm £6 each at Ciaté.
  • One mini treatment, 5ml ('Nail Superhero') - norm £4.44 based on the full-sized 13.5ml version at Look Fantastic.
  • One 'Gelology' top coat, 5ml - norm £6 at Ciaté.
  • One glitter topper, 5ml - similar colour norm £6 at Ciaté.
  • One full-sized pink and gold glitter nail polish in 'Showtime', 13.5ml - similar colour norm £9 at Ciaté.
  • One mini nail file - not normally sold.

This calendar was brand new for 2017 - featuring five exclusive new colours - and the cheapest we've seen elsewhere is £16.99 delivered. 

MSE Rhiannon says:

Even if you don't want everything in the list above for yourself, it's perfect for splitting up and using as birthday presents throughout the year. You could put numbers together and give the relevant boxes for people's age, or take them out of the inner boxes and wrap in tissue paper or organza bags to make up separate gifts.

You could, of course, also keep the set until December 2018 to use as an advent calendar if you like the 2017 colours.

Asda logo8 cheese advent calendarIncludes 24 cheeses, available in Asda stores

Expired

If you thought the Christmas cracker jokes were going to be the cheesiest thing this festive season, think again, as Asda will be offering an £8 cheese advent calendar – behind each of the 24 advent doors, you'll find a mini individually wrapped cheese.

Asda's cheese advent calendar has been getting a lot of press and social media coverage so we thought we'd take a peek behind the doors to see if it's actually good value, or a deal that stinks.

What cheese does it contain?

The 24 cheeses are 20g each and are made up of five varieties –  Red Leicester, Wensleydale and cranberries, mature Cheddar, Jarlsberg, and Applewood from Ilchester cheese makers in Somerset.

Is it good value?

Asda cheese advent calendarAt £8, the advent calendar works out at 33p for each mini cheese. As each cheese is 20g, that's 480g worth of cheese in total – equal to £16.67 per kg.

To put the cost into perspective, we looked at the price of each of the cheese varieties at the big supermarkets and found standard-sized blocks ranged from £5ish-£12ish per kg.

Of course, mini cheeses do generally cost more per kg and we checked out the price of other brands which sell mini cheeses such as Cathedral City, as well as Ilchester's mini cheese selection (which includes four of the cheeses included in the calendar), and the price per kg was £13ish-£15ish.

While admittedly our valuation isn't overly scientific, it appears Asda's cheese advent calendar is a bit more expensive than the usual costs of mini cheeses per kg, and a lot more expensive per kg than the total equivalent weight of a block of each cheese variety.

If you do go for this advent calendar, bear in mind you'll need to find room in the fridge between the turkey and sprouts to store the calendar – though cleverly it's in a book-style, which means you can tear off one half after 12 days.

Pringles logoPringles 8 advent calendarAt B&M stores. Includes 12 40g Pringles cans

Expired

Giving a new meaning to crisp winter mornings, discount store B&M is offering a Pringles advent calendar in stores for £7.99.

B&M says the advent calendar has been in stores since Mon 2 Oct and stock is now limited. It couldn't tell us which stores it's still available in – so it's best to check with your local B&M (find your nearest) and go quick if you want it.

We managed to get our hands on one and have popped open the doors to see if it's worth singing Pringle-bells about...

What does the advent calendar contain?

Pringles advent calendar

Sadly, there are only 12 doors so if you don't want your Pringles festive fix to end prematurely, you'd need to buy two calendars to cover you for the whole of Advent.

Behind each of the advent doors is a mini-sized 40g can of Pringles. The advent calendar we got contained three original flavour cans, three salt and vinegar, three sour cream and onion, and three Texas BBQ sauce flavour.

Is it good value?

At £7.99, the 12 40g Pringles cans work out at 67p each.

While we've seen them cheaper bought separately at other discount stores – 49p at Poundstretcher, and 50p each (two for £1) at Poundland – the mini cans are more expensive at the big supermarkets. We spotted them for 80p at Tesco and 85p at Sainsbury's.

So as a bit of fun, we don't think this Pringles advent calendar is bad value, as it can actually be cheaper than buying the mini cans in the supermarket.

Of course, you'll get slightly better value per gram by buying the regular 200g Pringles cans, but if you're someone who usually pops and can't stop, the smaller cans may be a better idea anyway – Merry Crispmas.

Kellogg's logoKellogg's Variety 4 advent calendarAt Tesco. Includes 24 Kellogg's Variety cereals

Expired

If you want to add some snap, crackle and pop to your Christmas countdown, you can get a Kellogg's advent calendar for £4 in store at Tesco (find your nearest*), while stock lasts.

What does the advent calendar contain?

Kellogg's advent calendar

You get three Kellogg's Variety eight-packs, meaning a total of 24 single-serving Kellogg's cereal boxes including Coco Pops (30g), Frosties (25g), Rice Krispies (20g) and Corn Flakes (17g), with each advent door including a Kellogg's character and message showing which cereal to eat.

Is it good value?

As this contains three eight-pack Kellogg's Variety boxes, that works out at £1.33 per pack. They're normally £2.05 bought individually at Tesco*, and the cheapest we’ve found one pack is £2 at Asda* and Iceland*. So if you usually buy these Variety packs anyway, then it's actually cheaper to get them with the advent calendar.

Aldi logoAldi 9 wooden advent calendarsWith LED lights. In stores only while stocks last

Expired

If you go into an Aldi store (find your nearest), you could get your hands on one of its wooden Christmas advent calendars with LED lights for £8.99. There are three available – white house, gingerbread house and nutcracker soldier.

Stock is limited – they sold out online within a day when they launched on Thu 2 Nov, and are likely to sell out fast in stores, so go quick if you want one. 

Other light-up wooden advent calendars we've spotted include a £20 one at Hobbycraft and £45 ones at House of Fraser, so if you've had your eye on one of these then you can make a big saving getting one from Aldi.

The drawers are empty, so you'll need to buy (or make) small treats to fill it yourself, but it's the same for the more expensive ones. You'll also need two AA batteries for the LED lights.
