OK So I've recently watched a program on BBC3 about a boy who bought over £500 worth of shopping in Tesco for 4p using coupons - this has got me slightly annoyed that I always pay full whack!

I'm now looking to signup to money saving websites to be 'in the know'.

I've signed up to today and they have lots of deals but a lot of them are local highstreet deals in places like Scotland which I obviously can't take advantage of. I also subscribed to which is a little more helpful because they seem to focus on online deals with bigger companies. Lastly, I signed up to which seems good for going out, eating etc.

Are there any other good ones I've missed?

Use cashback sites such as Quidco, TopCashBack, etc etc. You get low % cashback on general purchases (typically 1-3%) but that is better than nothing. Amazon doesn't feature often on cashback sites but sometimes they appear for specific promotions. Register your debit cards on sites like Quidco and some retailers link to Quidco and pay a little cashbck without you thinking!

The key to making savings on cashback sites are on car insurance, house insurance, breakdown cover etc where there is fierce competition and you can get £80 cashback on a new policy. For example I join the AA one year to get £60 cashback. At renewal I email them and leave and join the RAC for similar cashback. I've done this for the past 8 years.

before buying anything on Amazon check it on camelcamelcamel. some items change price within a day, so you can buy it when you know it will be cheapest, you can also check 'lightening deals' to see if you really are getting a good deal or if the prices were raised shortly before they were reduced.

for example, amazons deal of the day is a phillips SAD light reduced from £240 to £114, however if you check camelcamelcamel you will see that on November the 25th this light was on amazon at £98.

Thanks so much for this!

I heard about cashback websites a while ago but for some reason I just assumed they were too complicated and never looked into them seriously.

I'll give topcashback a try now. Thanks again my friend :)

I've been using Quidco for a few years and have had over £1700 cashback in that time.
