Free ice cream, ferry doozy, energy warning and more. These are Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis’ Deals of the Week.
Remember, deals can change quickly, even while I’m on the programme. So always double-check the terms and conditions before spending. Plus, while I hope these deals will save you cash, don’t spend if you can’t afford it, don’t need it, or won’t use it.
Web Exclusive: £10 off £40 on Tesco clothing
Enter the code FFTREAT online at Tesco clothing and you’ll get £10 off a £40+ spend until 11.59pm on 14 April. The offer can’t be used in conjunction with any other offers and you’ll still have to pay delivery charges.
Is your energy fix ending? Switch now!
Fixed tariffs offer you a guaranteed rate for a set time. Yet when they end, you’re usually shifted to the provider’s standard deal, which is a lot more expensive.
Npower's Go Fix 10 ends on Monday, EDF's Energy Fix ended last month. A typical user on these fixed deals are likely to see rises of nearly £200 a year – well over 15%. Therefore, it’s important to do a comparison now and ensure you’re moving to the cheapest deal.
The easy way to do that is using an Ofgem Confidence Code-approved comparison site to see if you can get a better deal elsewhere. If you liked being on a fixed product, there are two long-term ones out there currently: Scottish Power until 31 August 2014 and EDF Blue until 30 June 2014. They have good rates, and no exit penalties so you can leave when you need.
