Free Rakuten voucher with Vodafone

Today only (Friday 1st May), Vodafone customers can access a free voucher worth £4.50 to rent a movie at Rakuten. You need to head to the VeryMe Rewards part of the app. 

It’s possible to get access to this and other Vodafone Rewards if you are with another network but it’ll cost you £10 for six weeks’ access. Right now I think it’s probably not worth it considering it’s harder for brands to offer deals.

Star Wars IX coming to Sky, Disney & NOW TV next week

Seeing as the Rise of Skywalker only became available on DVD and online rental last week, it’s huge news that this latest Star Wars movie is coming months early to SKY and streaming services Disney+ and NOW TV on Monday.

I’ve rounded up the cheapest ways you can access these streaming services, including 7-day free trials and other savings.

Cheap Night In picks

Here’s my latest rundown of some of the cheap and free films, TV shows, theatre productions and music sets you can watch from home this weekend.

This week it includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Frankenstein, a virtual tour of Machu Picchu, free NBA basketball replays and how to support comedian Mark Watson’s fundraising 24-hour online show.

Free Brewdog beer

You’ll have to wait to get it, but Brewdog is giving everyone a free schooner (2/3 pint) of Punk IPA when their bars reopen. You’ll need a voucher – here’s how to get it.

Santander 123 vs Santander 123 Lite cashback current accounts compared

From next week interest will drop on the main Santander 123 account and both it and the cheaper 123 Lite account will have caps on the cashback you can earn on your bills.

I’ve compared the two to help you decide whether you should switch away or open one up – and which one is best.
