While I love saving money, I absolutely hate searching for voucher codes.
We’ve all been there before. You are on the checkout page of a website, just about to enter in your card details, when you see the section that says ‘Do you have a voucher code?’.
So what do you do? If you are anything like me, you open up a new tab and then Google search for a voucher code for that site. Then, you are presented with an endless list of search results from voucher code websites all claiming to have amazing discounts.
Except, so much of the time when I try to redeem those voucher codes, they are ‘expired’ or ‘invalid’ or ‘not applicable to my basket’. It is super frustrating. I end up wasting so much time, and don’t even …
By using coupons and vouchers, savvy UK shoppers saved £3.3 billion over the last year, based on new consumer research released by Valassis Limited, a UK coupon and voucher services provider.
Overall, 86 percent of supermarket shoppers use coupons with 40 percent indicating increased use from the previous year. Perhaps surprisingly, 50 percent of full-time workers revealed increased coupon usage, 12 percentage points higher than the previous year.
The survey found that 45 percent of shoppers are looking for promotional offers more than a year ago, eight percentage points higher than the previous year’s response. Younger consumers are more likely to look for deals with 55 percent of 25 to 34 year olds looking for offers compared to 28 percent of those 65 and older.
“Consumers increasingly seek out value and from a number …
Isn’t it annoying when voucher sites have expired vouchers at the top of lists? Seems that Dealsland doesn’t, so I did a little more digging.
I am always looking for tips and tricks to help me keep within budget. I have a money saving tips section as you may know on this blog, and from apps, to changing bank accounts, to loyalty cards, there are plenty of ways you can save. Still one of my favourites is cash back and coupon sites. As an avid fan of CouponQueen, the thought of finding an online discount or even one for shopping in store, makes me feel so happy. There are lots of coupon sites, and today, I’m looking at Dealslands.
You probably already know that coupons and vouchers are provided by stores so that shoppers …
You have a month left to spend your 50% off entry for one adult or child at a Merlin attraction if you pick up the Walkers crisp packet promotion. If there are any packs still floating around, just buy a standard or grab bag with packs including voucher for half price entry. If you missed the promotion, there are plenty more around if you take a look on the side of cereal packets – currently there’s a grown ups grow free on Kelloggs – and if you are under time pressure, you can also take a look on eBay. You can even spend your Nectar points on an annual Merlin pass. Merlin has 27 top attractions, including Legoland, Thorpe Park and Alton Towers. We went to Legoland recently and we would have paid over £100…Read more
So who better to give tips to save money before Christmas? As well as me, of course ;-), there are plenty of firms out there that earn money from saving consumers money.
I like these tips from money saving specialist Gareth Robinson who heads up www.discountvouchers.co.uk, a site that offers discount vouchers and impartial money saving advice. Here are his top 8 tips on how to save cash in time for Christmas Day, with of course, a few of my own comments.
1. Go online
Get into the mind-set that you don’t need to pay full price for anything. If you see something you want, note the brand, the name, the barcode – then get online and search until you find it online somewhere cheaper. You may find a free delivery code, or a …
I am a couponer I must admit. Not an extreme one though. You know the types that can get their shopping for £5 a week and have stacks of stuff that they didn’t really want just because it was free or cost next to nothing – that is too much effort for me.
I do however save coupons, look out for them in the post and in magazines, readily accept them when handed out around town and have no problem rummaging in my bag to save 20p off an item, get a bogof or some free loyalty points on a purchase.
Invariably I have some coupons floating around in my bag or purse at all times. I do cull them and remove the out of date ones. I also stick ones that are not really …
