Take advantage of comparison sites
There’s a huge amount of competition out there between businesses that are desperate to get you on board. As a new customer looking for anything from credit cards and car insurance to electricity and TV and broadband, you’re in an excellent position. If you’ve been with the same energy provider for as long as you can remember, or it’s been a while since you checked out other insurance providers, take advantage of comparison sites.
In a matter of minutes, you can look at a vast range of different policies, plans, packages, and providers to see if you could get more for your money. If you’re not happy with the service you’re receiving, or you think other companies could offer you a better deal, you’ll love this site moneypug.
All you have to do is put in some details about what you’re looking for, hit the return button, and see what’s out there. Even if you just make a small monthly saving on every bill you pay, this will soon add up over the course of a year. If you have seen better deals online, it may also be worth contacting your current provider and seeing if they could match or even better the offer.
Join mailing lists
If you tend to shop at the same stores all the time, it’s worth subscribing to mailing lists and following those businesses on social media. Retailers often offer discounts and deals to drum up interest and push sales. If you’ve seen something you want, you may find that if you join the mailing list, you get a code sent to your inbox. If you wait for flash sales and special offers, you may be able to save a substantial amount of money.
Are you planning to go out for dinner, are you organising days out for the summer holidays, or are you stocking up on new clothes? If so, have a look online and search for vouchers and discount codes. There are myriad sites that give you access to all the latest promotions. If you’re going out for tea after a day at a theme park, for example, you could save a vast amount of money by taking advantage of offers like 2 for 1 tickets and buy one main course, get one free.
Most of us would like our money to go further. If you’re trying to save, or you’d like to try and bring your household bills down, hopefully, you’ll find this guide useful. Shop around for the lowest prices, subscribe to your favourite websites and keep an eye out for special offers, vouchers, and discount codes.
