Yellow Sticker Time

Work out your local supermarket’s “sticker time” when it reduces prices. It varies between shops, but it’s usually between 6.30pm – 8pm or an hour before closing.

It’s a great way to grab a few bargains on delicious food!

 

Compare Prices

Have you heard of Miguel Barclay’s app called Comparasaurus? It checks the shelves at the supermarkets in real-time and gives you the prices.

 

Put Five Items Back

A good trick to stop overspending at the supermarket is to put five items back once your finished shopping in store or online.

In addition it’s a good way to think about what your essentials are and what you don’t need as much.

 

Write a List & Make a Budget

It sounds simple but by sticking to a list of items you need, not want and creating a budget you adhere to, you can save a lot of money.

If it isn’t on your list, don’t put it in the trolley.

 

Cashback Websites

Cashback websites do exactly what they say on the tin – they give you cash back when you spend online.

TopCashback and Quidco are two of the most popular and sometimes you earn hundreds. You have to visit the website, and click through to qualify your purchases.

 

Get Paid for Listening to Music

Listen to music, watch advertising videos and more at SliceThePie. They will reward you up to 10p for every song you listen and rate.

The more you listen, the more you will earn!

 

Switch Bank Accounts

Some banks offer incentives for you to switch accounts and save with them instead.

Have a look around at the different banks to see what they are offering for switching over to them – you would be amazed at how much a switch could earn you.

 

Switch Energy Suppliers

Switching your gas and electricity can save you hundreds of pounds – there is no hassle involved and it’s the same gas/ electricity as you had before. The only difference is that you pay that little bit less than before – so why not save yourself some cash.
