More on this week’s offers
More Prime Day early offers
Amazon Prime Day takes place next Tuesday and Wednesday (yes two days). I’ll be updating my deals page with the best offers, and helping you spot the good from the bad over on my Instagram. But beforehand it’s worth checking out these posts.
There are more discount codes and offers that expire before Prime Day. They include new ways to get £5 off. One requires you to get something delivered to a click and collect location. That’s on top of the promotions I shared last week.
Plus even if you don’t have Prime there’s a new way to get £10 back if you make your Mastercard a default payment card.
A lot of the Prime Day deals will be short-lived “Lightning Deals”. You need to make sure you’re not getting caught in the hype but if there’s something you want these tricks can help you nab them before they run out.
£10 or £5 off at John Lewis
If you’re a member of the free MyJohnLewis scheme then there are new codes that give £5 off a £70 spend and £10 off a £120 spend at John Lewis.
Sadly these have replaced codes offering double the discount. If you got one of these in the post from JL then it’s worth checking to see if they’ll honour the original offer.
Netflix 50% off offer
Netflix has brought back a new user offer. It’s either two months for the price of one or 50% off two months (so essentially the same thing).
Will Aid bookings open
If you’ve not got a will there are two opportunities to get cheap or free ones made. There’s Free Wills Month for over 55s in October and Will Aid for all (in return for a charity donation) in November. You can book now.
New auto-switching service for energy bills
I’m always saying how one of the easiest and biggest wins is to switch your energy, but still not everyone bothers. That’s where auto-switching services come into play, taking most of the effort out of doing it.
And now there’s a new player in town with Money Saving Expert launching its own service. Here’s my take on whether they’re better than doing it yourself, and which one is best.
“Free” chocolate bar from Co-op
If you join Co-op’s membership scheme (it’s £1) you can claim a free bar of Fairtrade chocolatefrom the Co-op app.
