After all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday mayhem I came across a site worth mentioning – www.myinternationalshopping.com contains a directory off all the international online retailers who offer free shipping to the UK. Buying from sites in the US, Hong Kong and Europe can save you up to 40% on UK prices.
For many stores the last order date for Christmas delivery is 10thDecember so you need to get your skates on, although many US retailers offer a free upgrade to express shipping on the run up to Christmas which extends final order dates to around 18thDecember!

2. Set up your profile on cashback sites – so that any payments are sent directly to a savings account rather than your current account.
