I have been using a range of sites to save money over the last few years and it occurred to me just the other day that you guys might also be interested in hearing about them too. We all love to cut costs in order to save more money but it can be quite hard to figure out where exactly can you get the best deals available. Having had a bit of experience over the years (I do have 3 children so being savvy comes as part of the package) I wanted to share with you all a few of my favourite websites and apps that can help save you those precious pounds.
Here are My Top 5 Sites to Help Save You Money.
Money Saving Expert
Martin Lewis is a consumer champion and has now also become a familiar face to many since appearing regularly on national TV and in the press sharing his various money saving tips. Back in 2003, he set up a website called MoneySavingExpert.com, which has 15 million visitors per month and I’m one of them.
On his website, Martin and his team advise on how you can cut costs in practically every single area of your life. It’s a great idea to sign up for its weekly money saving email list and they also have some apps you may like as well. The Local eBay Deals Mapper, for instance, will display ‘pick up only’ deals in your area. These tend to be cheaper since a lot less people bid on them. If you need to travel by train you might also want to check out Tickety Split which is a handy tool which tells you when it’s less expensive to by two tickets for different parts of a journey instead of buying one directly.
I’ve used this on numerous occasions. If you’d like to save some cash on your weekly shop but aren’t quite sure which supermarket is the least expensive My Supermarket is just the website for you. You can create your very own shopping list, and it’ll work its magic telling you what it would cost in Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Aldi, and Waitrose so you can choose the cheapest option.
If you haven’t ever used a cash back website such as TopCashback when you shop you’ve definitely been missing out. It’s easy to sign up for a free account and then whenever you go do some online shopping, whether you’re buying groceries, an electrical item, a new outfit, a TV package or even renewing insurance, you can click on the merchant link at the TopCashback website. The merchants reward TopCashback for sending a customer their way, and they pass on part of that commission to you. So basically you sort of get paid to shop, sounds good doesn’t it!
If you wanna shop savvy, check out VoucherCodes.co.uk, alternatively you can download their app. There are literally thousands of money-off vouchers for the best retailers and even restaurants always good to know if you love shopping or are a foodie like me. These allow you to save cash whether you shop in-store or online.
WOW FreeStuff is one of the biggest freebie sites around offering up to 10 freebies a day straight to your inbox as well as offering free stuff on their Facebook, Twitter feeds and website. They only offer UK free samples and they have a great range of perfume samples, beauty samples and lots of free food and drink samples.
