I have over 15 loyalty cards, so when I recently stumbled upon an app called Loyalive while having a look round the App store, I was a very happy bunny.
It’s a useful addition to any savvy-shoppers phone – storing all your loyalty cards in one place so you can finally empty your purse of unnecessary plastic. The app also helps with keeping track of points and makes it really easy to check what you’re entitled to – anything from vouchers to a mini-break. Plus it’s free to download on iPhone and Android.
While I do collect points, I don’t religiously check my balance, so I had no idea I had been building up so many points over the last few years – £35 on Nectar points which I promptly spent!
Sometimes I feel that …
I have been writing this blog in my spare time for the last two years. I have tried to stay objective by not taking money for any posts, so that I have your interests at heart.
Now I would like to ask for something back. I would love it if you would vote for me in the Show Me the Money Awards:
I’m in the Best lifestyle and money blog.
The awards close on 27 August, and the awards ceremony is on the 19 September, so please do vote for me.
Thanks a billion, Mrs BH xxxx…
My mates went to Bestival and it sounded awesome, but it meant camping….now that’s not for me. I’m a city girl through and through. However, if you are seeking a last minute break for the remaining weeks of the summer holidays, then you could go for a memorable ‘glamping’ trip.
In the forth of my series on last minute breaks for the school holidays, I’m going to be looking at ‘glamping’, for the likes of me and anyone else who would run a mile from ground sheets, tent pegs and guy ropes, yet would still like to enjoy an outdoors escape with the family.
When I clicked on www.Wigwamholidays.com, I found lots of different ‘glamping’ options at a wide range of UK locations, from the north of Scotland right down to Cornwall.
Do you have that one friend who always gets away without paying for things? The one that dodges the taxi fare, leaves before it’s their round and opts for a salad before tucking into half your meal? Well, bill dodgers beware as there is a new app in town – Payfriendz.
Payfriendz is an app that provides an easy way to pay family and friends, as well as request money owed by them. It’s in-built messenger means that payments can be requested and sent to friends and family all within the same app. So no need to exchange bank details or awkward walks to the cash machine after that lovely meal out, just split the bill there and then.
Who is using it?
The app is also really handy for university students to split household bills …
In the third of my last minute travel ideas for the summer holidays, I thought I’d take a look at holidays from a holiday home owner’s point of view, and see how they can offer discounts direct to consumers.
If you own a holiday home, you’ll surely hate to see it empty, particularly during the peak summer months. Many are more than happy to offer huge last minute discounts in order to fill up their calendar.
Snaptrip is a new marketplace that helps owners to offers discounts of up to 50% on the largest collection of self-catered properties in the UK. Which is great for spontaneous holidaymakers!
By partnering with both individual owners and some of the biggest property management agencies in the country, Snaptrip has made searching for your dream cottage a quick and …
