Cocktails, carpets & cold lunch meat – this week's MSE Forum highlights

It's thanks to a benevolent horde of tapping and swiping fingertips that the MSE Forum is the behemoth it is. MoneySaving community members get involved daily to provide support, posit ideas, share experiences and pose questions. Here are a few of this week's best bits.

Freebies, flasks & finger puppets – this week's MSE Forum highlights

Each week we publish a small selection of highlights from the MSE Forum. This week is a short one thanks to the bank holiday, so it's a slightly slimmer round-up than usual. Happy Easter weekend, folks.

Boots extends its 'Price Advantage' promo – but how good are the deals?

In January, Boots introduced a discount scheme for customers with its Advantage loyalty card, giving exclusive deals when shopping in store (similar to Tesco's 'Clubcard Prices'). It's now extended this 'Price Advantage' offer to online shoppers and says it's added 100+ more products to the promo – so I've crunched the numbers to see if the deals are actually any good.

Easter craft ideas from the MSE Forum

Cats, coupon fairies & noisy tables – this week's MSE Forum highlights

Like a city that never sleeps, the MSE Forum goes on generating debate, guidance, support and humour at all hours. Here are a few of this week's highlights.

Coupon fairies – have you ever encountered one?

More versatile than the Easter bunny and more consistent than Santa, the coupon fairy is the everyday hero you've probably never heard of. If you've ever received a voucher from a stranger in the checkout queue, or found one tucked on a supermarket shelf beside the corresponding item, you've encountered a coupon fairy. Or maybe you're one yourself? If that's the case, we're about to lift the lid on your secret.
