Andy’s deals of the week 1st May 2021

My pick of the best offers and savings.
Andy Webb's deals of the week

Every week I spend hours looking at discounts and deals to pick the good from the bad. I’ll only share ones which I think are worth considering – but remember you’re only saving money if you’re buying something you need and can afford.

This week I’ve got two cashback bonuses that you might also be able to combine, a way to get 8% back from Tesco on anything, a big Waitrose sale and your last chance to get a £1 MOT.

Don’t forget to check out my Clever Cash Deals Instagram account. This is where I’ll share any flash offers that will have come and gone by the time this roundup is published.

American Express: Boosted referral bonuses

Until 12th May you can get a little extra if you are referred by a friend to Amex credit cards.

The pick is the Preferred Rewards Gold Card where the bonus is an extra 12,000 points. This converts to £60 as a gift card, or if you switch them to Nectar points (via Avios) a massive £96.

And that’s on top of the 20,000 bonus when you spend £3,000 in three months. Convert those to Nectar too and you could be up £280!

This is only for those who haven’t had an Amex in their name in two years. Here’s more on the offers.

Halifax: £100 switch bonus ends Tuesday

Your last chance to get the £100 offer from Halifax. You can also get £5 a month with the Reward account. More details on this and other switching offers here.

Rakuten: Free movie rental

Take out a 7-day trial of streaming service Starzplay via Rakuten and you’ll get 500 points (worth £5) to spend on a movie rental or to go towards a purchase.

Wine: 25% off at Tesco and Sainsbury’s

Buy more than six bottles of wine at these supermarkets this weekend and you’ll get a 25% discount. You can stack the offer on top of other promotions too!

Yankee Bundles: Clearance Easter choc

You can pick up cheap Oreo and Galaxy mini eggs, as well as small Lindt bunnies at clearance prices.
