More on this week’s deals

Odeon’s 5 tickets for £20 offer is back

Head over to Groupon and you can pick up two tickets for £10 or five for £20. There’s a 75p booking fee each time you use your tickets, meaning you’re looking at £4.75 or £5.75 a ticket – still very good value, especially at weekends.

Get 1.5% cashback at Amazon and £20 voucher

If you’re a regular shopper at Amazon then you’ll be doing yourself a favour by applying for the Amazon Platinum credit card. You’ll get a free £20 voucher to spend, and if you’re a Prime member you’ll also get 1.5% cashback on all Amazon purchases. It’s not great for other spending though (beaten by the Amex or John Lewis cards), and only use it if you can clear the balance every month.

Lidl 99p event

From Thursday 16th January Lidl is selling a range of products at 99p, from Chicago Town pizzas to Branston pickle to Ritter chocolate. Worth a look, while stock lasts.

John Lewis and Waitrose now payout options on cashback sites

I was withdrawing some cashback this week and spotted there’s now an option to get your payout as John Lewis or Waitrose gift cards, both with a little bit of a bonus. My premium TopCashback account offered a 5% boost, while at Quidco it was 3%. Here’s more about this payout method.

McDonald’s freebies

If you download the McDonald’s app to your phone you’ll be able to access freebies and deals every day until 26th January. Today (Thursday) it’s a free milkshake or Coke Zero. You need to order via the app when you’re in one of the participating restaurants.
