Of all the days you could do with a laugh, it has to be Valentine's Day.  All that pressure to spend lots of cash can wipe the smile off any MoneySaver's face.

But in Poundland, you can get stand-up comedy DVDs for a quid each. So you can stay in and stick on a DVD - no cash wasted!

Poundland logo1 branded beauty bargainsIncl Stila, Rimmel, Max Factor, Eylure and OPI


As the wonderful Dolly Parton said: "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap". And she's right, buying make-up isn't easy on the pocket.

So we've done the glamorous job of scouring our local pound shops looking for branded beauty bargains. Some are discontinued (they were the hottest trends once, so we think anyway) and others are still in the shops with a big price tag.

  • Stila sheer colour tinted moisturiser 50ml - 21 elsewhere online
  • Boholash, Salonsystem diamond false lashes - 7.99 elsewhere online
  • Elegant Touch Union Jack nails - 6.45 at Boots
  • OPI nail shatter 15ml - RRP 13, but we've seen them for 4.49 delivered
  • Miss Eylure false eyelashes - 4.09 at Superdrug
  • NYC false lashes - 2.99 at Superdrug


  • Rimmel Wake Me Up mousse - 5 at Tesco
  • Rimmel Glam Eyes trio - 4.99 (incl delivery) elsewhere online
  • TOWIE false eyelashes - 13 for a 3-pack elsewhere online, so about 4 each
  • Calvin Klein sheer creme eyeshadow - RRP 1.50, but we saw it for 5 elsewhere online
  • Rimmel 60 seconds nail polish - was 3.70 at Tesco, now 2.70

This is what we found in our local stores. Speaking to Poundland and Poundworld, they say you can get these items in most stores, while stocks last.

Can cosmetics go off?

The British Skin Foundation says:

"Cosmetic products will remain safe to use provided they are stored under suitable conditions and not subjected to extreme temperatures."

"To ensure the maximum durability of cosmetic products, they should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and with the lids firmly closed."

It also said the use by date on cosmetics, is from when you open the product. So if it says 18 months on the box, it should last for 18 months from when you open it, provided it's been stored correctly.

Poundland logo1 HDMI cables at PoundlandThey're just as effective as 20+ ones

Go to your nearest Poundland store and hunt for the 1 cables.

Poundland says they are available all year round in all of its 400 stores. The Poundland HDMI cable is 1m long and can be used to connect your PC to your TV, so you can watch online content on your big screen.

MSE Becca says:

There's no point spending 20+ on a HDMI cable when tests have shown there's no difference in picture between the most expensive cables and the cheapest - techy website Cnet agrees.

Expired Deals

Poundland logo2 Kinder Surprise Easter egg at PoundlandNot in all stores - can you find 'em? 4.99 elsewhere


Kinder Surprise Easter egg

If you look in Poundland stores (find your nearest), you might find Kinder Surprise Easter eggs at £2 each. Available in two designs, 'DC Super Friends' and 'DC SuperHero Girls', the 100g eggs are made from Kinder Surprise chocolate, with its usual milky white chocolate lining and a superhero-themed toy inside.

Poundland says the eggs are only available while stocks last (so go quick) and only stocked in 'selected' stores. It hasn't been able to tell us which stores exactly, so it's a case of 'have a look and see' - though it might not be worth making a special trip. 

Although they're not widely available, we spotted the same eggs at B&M for £4.99.

Poundland logoPoundland Black Friday dealsIndividual deals on electricals, toys and perfumes


Discount retailer Poundland is running a week of online sales on electricals, toys and perfume on its website for Black Friday.

It’s important to note that most products on Poundland are a smaller size than regularly sold – so bear this in mind when you do any price comparisons.

For the rest of our Black Friday deals and analysis, see our Black Friday 2016 Deals page.

Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. And always do your own price comparisons to ensure you are getting the best deal possible – don’t just take a retailer’s word for it.

BBQ logoCheap BBQs, from 1Also charcoal BBQs from 15 & charcoal from 1.49


With the weather out there unseasonably warm and Brits barbecuing at every opportunity (and even persevering through the rain), we've rounded up the cheapest barbecue deals we could find, including portable charcoal barbecues from £15 and disposables from £1.

£1 barbecues 

Disposable barbecues are available for £1 in store at Poundland or Poundworld. The next cheapest we've found is £1.29 from Aldi. They often sell for around £5 in supermarkets, so if you want one it's worth making the trip to one of the stores above if you have one nearby.

You should check the quantity of charcoal and burning time if you plan to cook for several people, as there's a lot at steak (sorry) and you may need to purchase more than one - or risk a grilling.

Portable barbecues

  • 12" diameter 'Grill Sergeant' BBQ - £15 (was £40) at Hawkin's Bazaar. Delivery's £2.50.
  • 14" diameter portable BBQ - £16 at Argos*. Collect in store for free or delivery is £3.95.

Standard-sized charcoal barbecues 

If you're cooking for a family of four, a standard-sized free-standing barbecue should do the job. On Tue 13 Aug, we found these strong deals:

  • 20" wide rectangular trolley BBQ - £12 at Wilko*. Collect in store for free or delivery is £4.
  • 17" diameter kettle BBQ - £25 at Argos*. Incl utensils and cover. Collect in store for free or delivery is £3.95.
  • 28" x 14" oil drum BBQ - £45 (standard price) at Argos*. Collect in store for free or delivery is £3.95.
  • 22" diameter kettle BBQ - £50 (was £85) at Robert Dyas*. Collect in store for free or delivery is £3.95.

Gas barbecues 

With gas barbecues, you usually save on time, but not money. You'll need to factor in the cost of the gas canister and refilling it compared to charcoal. On Tue 13 Sep, we found these deals:

  • Three burner gas BBQ - £90 at Wilko*. Collect in store for free or delivery is £4.
  • Three burner gas BBQ - £125 (norm £170) at Argos*. Delivery only, from £6.95.

5kg charcoal

The hottest deals we found on 5kg bags of charcoal, which are sure to get you sizzling, include:

Instant lighting charcoal bags

If you don't want guests barbe-queuing up for a sausage whilst you're still trying to light the grill, then you might want to opt for the easier option of instant lighting charcoal bags. The best deals we spotted include:

Barbecue safely

Whichever barbecue you choose, be sure to follow the Fire Service's barbecue safety advice, never leave your barbecue unattended, always dispose of charcoal or disposable barbecues responsibly and never bring your barbecue indoors.

Poundland logoPoundland Black Friday dealsOnline only. Ends Sat 28 Nov


Despite its name, Poundland is offering discounts on pricier home goods and appliances until Sat 28 Nov. Prices start from £7, but it’s worth noting there’s a £4 delivery charge on orders under £55.

It’s difficult to compare prices for these items, as many are no longer sold elsewhere. Always do your own checks and price comparisons before you buy.

Discounted items include:

NOTE: Due to the time sensitive nature of the Black Friday weekend deals, we haven’t been able to fully verify every deal and do our normal analysis. Always do your own research to ensure you are getting the best bargain out there. And remember, don’t just buy it if it’s on offer, buy it if you need it.

Poundland logoPoundland 2 off 20 online spendVia online code


If you use the code SAVE2 online at Poundland by Fri 9 Oct, you can get £2 off when you spend £20. This is an online only code, so it can't be used in Poundland's stores.

Delivery's £4 and you need to spend £20 to get this deal, so if you're just after a few things you may be better off visiting a store.

More info

use the money mantras

Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!

Skint? ask:
  • Do I need it?
  • Can I afford it?
not skint? ask:
  • Will I use it?
  • Is it worth it?
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.
