Tech, appliances and electronics deals

From headphones to TVs, washing machines to fridges.

If I spot special offers on any technology, appliances and electronics I’ll share them here.

Curry’s Trash for Cash: Free £5 voucher

Take old electric items to Currys for recycling and you’ll get a £5 off voucher (minimum spend £25). You can provide anything powered by battery or mains, working or not. It doesn’t have to be bought from Currys originally.

Vouchers must be used within 90 days and they can’t be used on Apple products, consoles or gift cards.

Echo Dot: Upgrade for £21.99

If you’re after a new Echo Dot (5th generation) then you can try the code DOTUPGRADE to bring the price down to £21.99 (rrp is £54.99, though it’s currently on offer for £29.99)

This won’t work for all customers, so look for the offer on the landing page. It expires 9am on 27 March 2023.

John Lewis: Free Google Nest Hub when you spend £75 (expired)

Spend £75 on selected home, furniture and electrical items at John Lewis and you’ll be able to add a Google Nest Hub (currently priced at £49.99) your basket. Then use the code MYJLGOOGLENEST at checkout to get it for free.

You do need to be a MyJohn Lewis member, which is free. Ends 8 June 2022, though previously offers like this have finished early if all the stock as gone.

Amazon device sale (expired)

Amazon is once again discounting the price of its Echo speakers, Kindles and more. But you don’t have to buy from Amazon direct as loads of retailers are price matching (eg Currys).

Here’s a selection:

Fire TV

Echo speakers


BT TV: NOW, Netflix and Freeview box for £6p/m (expired)

*It looks like BT has pulled this offer 24 hours early*

This offer from BT for new and existing customers with BT Broadband is pretty good. For £6 a month for two years you get:

  • Basic Netflix (rrp £6.99 p/m)
  • NOW Entertainment (rrp £10 p/m)
  • A BT TV Box Pro box to record free-to-air programmes (similar boxes sell for £180 or more)

Over the two years you’ll pay at least £144 (prices will go up in March each year by inflation plus 3.9%). You can upgrade to NOW Boost (£5 p/m) to get HD viewing and no adverts, and you can also add Sports or Cinema passes on a month-by-month basis.

And you do need to factor in the cost of the broadband on top – BT might not be the cheapest deal which could undo some of the savings.

Ends 14 April 2022.

VPN offers

NORDVPN deal stack

A VPN is a service which lets you access the internet privately or browse as if you were in another country (it’s how people watch iPlayer overseas). For a day or two every month or so, Quidco offers 100% cashback rather than the usual 70% or 80% on a two-year NordVPN membership. This is worth around £68.

A quick extra hack – VAT is added on top and cashback doesn’t cover this. So you’re looking at paying around £14, though I know some people have said they’re based in the US or Guernsey to avoid this.

Remember if you do pay in a foreign currency it’s best to use a card that won’t charge a fee. Plus, don’t forget if you’ve not signed up to Quidco yet you can get up to £17 extra back on your first purchase! More on the latest new member deals here.

  1. Just purchased the deal via Quidco and got £60.50 cash back.

    NordVPN 2 year Premium Subscription was £68.53/2 year

    I put Guernsey as home country for no VAT

    Used my starling card paid USD $89.00 which converted to £66.68

    Total cost for 2 years £6.18

    1. Thanks Kam, good to know!

  2. This seems to be £68 + vat

    1. Thanks for this Paul. I’ve messaged my contact at Quidco again to question this! I’ll update the deal above when I get confirmation as to whether it really is 100% or if it’s 100 without VAT (which isn’t 100% for most of us!)
