This week’s deals
This flash sale started late on Tuesday night (10 hours after it was meant to arrive… you couldn’t make it up), but there are still some 10p fares available. It’s only for journeys across the Northern Rail network, but that includes Leeds, Manchester, Blackpool, Sheffield and many more. Here’s how to get your 10p singles and 20p returns.
If you didn’t nab this offer before Christmas you’re in luck as it’s been extended until the end of January. It’s only for eligible customers but it’s easy to find out if you can claim. If so all you need to do is change your default 1-click payment method to a Mastercard. You’ll then get a free £5 voucher to spend before March.
Both Waitrose and Tesco have January sales right now. I think the Waitrose one is better with 50% off brands like Alpro, Sensodyne and Pizza Express.
The Tesco offers are part of the Clubcard Prices and Centenary promotions and neither had offers that really stood out – but it’s worth checking it out as there could be something that works for you.
One of the apps I’ve mentioned in last week’s automated savings article is Chip, and new users can get a free £10 for signing up and making two saves. It’s a good app which I use and would recommend, so the extra tenner is a nice bonus.
Buy a Roku stick for £17.99 at Argos and you’ll not only get a smart stick that works for Netflix, Prime AND Now TV (cutting down on the cables and remotes), but you’ll also be able to claim three movies from Rakuten to keep.
If you’re taking part in dry-January then you’re going to save a few quid if you pop down to a Brewdog bar as you can get unlimited refills of it’s range of alcohol-free beers all month.
With news that Tandem is axing its cashback credit card, this could be the best replacement. If you’re a regular John Lewis or Waitrose shopper then you can pick up double points (worth 2%) in rewards for 90 days with a new John Lewis & Partners credit card, plus you can get a free £30 bonus voucher if you spend £250 in that same period.
A few deals to share with you. First HSBC has brought back it’s £175 switching bonus, while First Direct has doubled it’s bonus to £100.
TSB also now offers £100 to you and a friend if you refer them to join TSB. They’ll need to complete a full switch to get the cash, which means closing down their existing account at a different bank.
