The Budget at a glance

Making his announcement, George Osborne promised a Budget for "makers, doers and savers" to contribute to a "resilient economy."

As the 2014 budget has now been announced it’s clear there’s no big, crowd-pleasing surprises amongst it. A little bit was taken, a little bit given away but there is no big dramatic shift everywhere.

The Budget: What to expect

George Osborne delivers the Budget today where he is expected to walk the tightrope between holding on to the purse strings, but offering enough sweeteners to keep the country happy.

He has already made it clear that though the economy is on the up, there are still difficult decisions to make. It's expected he will leave major popular giveaways to closer to next year's General Election.

Web Exclusive: £11-£16 make-up in £2 mag

Buy the April edition of Glamour magazine (Lea Michele's on the cover) for £2 by Wednesday 2 April and you'll find one of four ModelCo freebies enclosed with the magazine. Both the mascara and lip liner freebies usually cost £16, while the eyeliner and lip gloss are usually £11 and £12 respectively.

New couples’ railcard for £27

The first new national railcard in 30 years has been launched and I think it’s likely to be a saver even for those who don’t use the train that often.

The Two Together Railcard means couples, or any pair of named people get a third off all rail travel – apart from weekday mornings between 4:30am and 9:30am. This will fill a big gap in the railcard market, as most were only available to those who were either under 26, over 60, disabled, serving in the armed forces or travelling with children.

It costs £30, but until Wednesday 30 April, enter the code ONLINE on the Two Together Railcard site and you'll get 10% off, making it £27 for the year. Delivery’s free.

Just one decent-length rail trip a year can save you more than the £27 cost. The maths shows that even on a one-off journey, if the tickets cost more than £42 each, it’s cheaper to buy the railcard and get the discount.

Where's the credit card rejection capital?

Sixty-one per cent of credit card customers have been rejected for new cards - that's two percent up on last year.
