Boost your savings, free crisps, 2for1 National Trust entry, Nando’s warning, cheap chocolate and more - these are just some of Martin Lewis' Real Deals.
The nature of deals is they move fast – prices, terms and stock levels can change rapidly, even while Martin’s on the programme (21 June), as so many people are checking them out. So go quickly, always double-check before spending or making a special trip, and check the terms and conditions.
Plus, while we hope these are cracking deals and save you cash; as Martin always says, if a specific deal involves spending and you can’t afford it, don’t need it, or won’t use it, please don’t do it.
Remember, deals can change quickly...
Web exclusive: £15 Abercrombie & Fitch jeans
If you were planning on getting a new pair of jeans, Sports Direct is currently selling Abercrombie & Fitch jeans for £15, down from £50 both online and in-store. But the offer is only on while stocks last, so go quick if you want a pair as it’s unlikely they’ll be around for long.
New top 3.2% AER easy-access savings
The Santander 3.2% AER account is the new top paying easy-access savings account, just pipping the Post Office at 3.17% AER, and better still, both allow unlimited withdrawals and only require £1 to open them. So if you’ve already used up this year’s tax free cash Isa allowance, have savings left over and need access to your cash, it’s worth considering.
Importantly, both these banks are fully UK-regulated (Santander UK is a separate bank to its Spanish parent) and therefore in the event of problems, the government guarantees up to £85,000 per person per institution via the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
Yet part of the high rates on these products is made up by a bonus interest rate that lasts a year, so their rates will drop like a stone then, thus diarise to ditch and switch.
£6 Thorntons chocs for 60p delivered or two Cineworld tickets for £8
New users to payment app Simply Tap can currently get one of two offers. You’ll first need to get the free app, which is available on both iPhones and Android phones. Then you have until 2 July to get two Cineworld tickets for £8, or a box of Thorntonschocolates for 60p delivered, while stocks last.
To get the cinema ticket offer, you’ll need to enter the code 248CINED when prompted and enter a valid credit/debit card (must be registered to your address). You'll then get two voucher codes to enter online at Cineworld. You must book tickets by 30 September.
Or, you could get the app and then enter the code JUBILEE when prompted to get a box of Thorntons chocolates normally costing £6 (although they’re currently on offer at £3) for 60p delivered. Again you’ll need to register your details and enter a valid credit or debit card. Simply Tap says it has 5,000 boxes in stock, although it says it can obtain more to fulfil orders.
For both offers, do ensure the address you type in exactly matches the electoral register or it won’t recognise you. Some people have reported glitches with this.
2for1 National Trust entry: Buy the Daily Telegraph this Saturday (costs £2) and inside there’s a voucher for 2for1 entry to participating National Trust properties(there's around 200 nationwide, excluding Scotland). The voucher is valid till 8 July, and as members already get free entry, they can take another person for free with the voucher.
Nando’s loyalty cards expiring: If you've got an old loyalty card, you can either use it by 30 June or transfer the stamps to a new card. From 1 July, any stamps earned on the old card are useless.
Extra 10% off Warehouse sale: Until 29 June if you go to the MyVoucherCodes website you can get a code to use online, or a printable voucher to use in-store to get an extra 10% off the Warehouse sale.
Free Walkers crisps on Facebook: Until 31 August or before 20,000 go, if you ‘like’ Walkers’ Facebook page, you can play the ‘Britometer’ game to win either a 20p off coupon, a 40p off coupon, a free bag of crisps, or on some days, a ‘star prize’. The giveaway starts at 9am every day and the daily prize allocation goes quick so get up early if you want one. By 'liking' the app you agree to Walkers accessing your Facebook info, but you can 'unlike' it afterwards to stop this.
PS. As a final MoneySaving tip, don’t use your voucher to buy Cheese and Onion, it’s a waste as Salt and Vinegar is far better (and I won’t hear any disagreement).
