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
Take old electric items to Currys for recycling before 14 August 2022 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 by the end of August 2022 – but they can’t be used on Apple products, consoles or gift cards.
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.
Echo Dot: 2 for £33 deal stack (expired)
Amazon is selling two Echo Dots (4th gen) for £45.98 with the code 2ECHODOT4, and of course other retailers are price matching, including John Lewis.
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).

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.
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.
