Why you should be saving your Tesco ClubCard points for Christmas

All year round I shop at Tesco. I normally find myself in the reduced section of the store, or at least one of them in the hopes to grab as many reduced bargains as possible. After all who doesn’t love filling up their freezer for £40 and having it last most of the month? At the same time I love collecting my ClubCard points, I also love topping them up with my wombling. However I’m not one of these people who decide to spend their points every month and I don’t spend hundreds at Tesco each month for it to amount to anything worth spending. How do I solve this? I make sure I don’t cash out monthly and I wait till the end of the year to reap the rewards from all my spending. I know many people who have never heard about this before and had no idea…

Various ways to make a successful complaint.

Complaining can be difficult these days. Just for the simple fact that there are so many ways in which you can do it. I mean you have social media, your phone and you could even do it the old fashioned way and send a letter! Although I have to point out I don’t know of anyone that has complained successfully through sending a letter through the post. Not that I complain everyday but I know how to do it successfully, 9 times out of 10 that is. I wanted to let you know about the various ways that you can complain and how successful I have actually been when using these methods. I must point out now that every method is different depending on the situation and the company however. 1, Twitter. Most companies these days are on Twitter, either that or Facebook although I have to say I haven’t…

I don’t know about others but I find myself spending online at least once a month. After a busy month I end up spending at least £50-£100 online and it’s crazy.

Groupon, how to get the best deals for fairer prices!

I’ve had some recent experience with Groupon and I have to say I’ve ended up rather shocked. If you don’t already know Groupon is an app on your phone which brings you so much. You can purchase discounted items through the app along with experience days and other treatments. Groupon literally brings you hundreds of offers everyday, you can either browse them overall or be location specific, I would always suggest location specific. Firstly let’s talk about the items that you can get through Groupon. Groupon offers discounts on a whole range of items, from water bottles, televisions and toothbrushes! However it has to be said although the discounts look amazing in first glance they might not be as good as they seem. I would always suggest taking a look online first, I’ve found the items online so much cheaper 9 times out of 10 so it always pays to…
