The Boots Up To 70% OFF SALE *CONFIRMED*

Finally, after much confusion today Boots have confirmed when they’re famous up to 50% off sale will increase to up to 70% off. It will be going live online (around 4am) although an online increase has not been confirmed yet and in-store from opening time on Friday 20th January. Please do check your local store’s opening times on Friday as I know some do open earlier.

There has been a lot of confusion this year as to when the up to 70% off sale would start, as for the last few year’s it has always been the the third week of January. I’m glad Boots have decided to ahead with the sale as it means plenty of bargains for us all! If you want to see what I managed to get last year in the sale you can view my Youtube video here. Enjoy the sale on Friday and as always, please do let me know what bargains you manage to get!


FREE CPR Babygrow with Tesco

Last year, St John Ambulance research found that only one in four parents would know what to do in this scenario – despite most saying that this was the first aid emergency that they fear the most. So Tesco are teaming up with them to try to change that! To help as many parents as possible, Tesco has joined forces with St John Ambulance to help spread the little-known but incredibly important lesson of baby CPR. With the help of Humpty Dumpty, we’ve also created a babygrow that provides all the life-saving information you need to help you remember what to do, just in case an emergency should happen. In selected stores on 13 October 2016, Tesco will be running first aid demonstrations and giving away these limited edition babygrows (while stocks last) – while helping to fundraise for St John Ambulance’s life saving work with a suggested donation of £3 per babygrow. To find out more information you can visit the Tesco website here.

CheckoutSmart – The Best Way To Maximise Your Savings

You have probably heard me talk about cash back for some years now. Yet still even I forget to use these great apps to maximize my coupon shops and weekly food shops. Coupons are fantastic when they are around, but recently I’m finding myself using cash back apps more and more in this coupon drought.

feeb458c61c07d293c1edac0fe2a2c12CheckoutSmart is one of the best cashback apps on the market and offer fantastic freebies and rewards each week to their users. As well as getting cash back from supermarkets such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Waitrose and Iceland. You can also get cash back from bargain stores and other high-street names. These include B&M, Farmfoods, Heron Foods, Lloyds Pharmacy, Superdrug and Wilko’s.

You are also not limited to in-store shopping anymore, CheckoutSmart now offers cashback for online food shopping. Also, if you don’t want to use the app you can now do everything on their website too! For example this week you could save £227.90 by using the app how amazing is that! The offers change weekly and here is how I incorporate CheckoutSmart into my weekly shopping… I always plan ahead, so I will write out my shopping list, I then open up the app to see what offers are available and add these onto my list if need be.

I love finding all the freebie offers as it’s a great way to try new products and increase your savings. Once I’ve done my weekly shop, I then keep my receipt handy and open up the app and hit ‘claim’. I then take a photo of my receipt and upload it to be reviewed. Once the cash back has been approved it appears in my CheckoutSmart account and I can withdraw directly to my bank account. There are lots of great products you can claim cash back on and why not save even more money on the items you love and buy each week?

Expert Mortgage Tips With Habito

Saving up for your dream home can be a costly and stressful time. Most of us will be looking into ways of lending to obtain our dream homes. For me, I don’t know the first thing about mortgages and it’s easy to feel confused and daunted by the whole situation. Habito, the UK’s only digital online mortgage broker, has compiled 4 of their best tips to help you when looking for a mortgage.

Brokers – There are some 1000’s of mortgage products out there and so many lenders, you need help to navigate the market. A mortgage broker can help you navigate the market and find the best deal for you. Brokers make money from the lender when an application is complete, so there is no need to charge you to help you. Some do charge but have a look around online for the best advice.

Digital – It’s 2016, and the mortgage industry is screaming out for some innovation. Anyone looking for a mortgage should be able to sort out their mortgage with an online mortgage broker. No need for payments, fax machines, massive forms or meetings. This can actually help many couples and families out, who don’t have time to go into a branch and be quizzed for hours on end. Habito is one of the few if not the only online mortgage brokers in the world, using technology to automate the process of acquiring this type of financing. For a seamless process, they come highly recommended and have been referred to as a miracle broker – read this review to hear what one family had to say earlier this month.

Online Calculators  – Be careful of relying on online calculators when working out your affordability to borrow. They do not give a realistic breakdown and can mislead you into thinking you can afford more. Basically, until you talk to a broker and get some in depth affordability details clear, any online mortgage calculator output is not that useful.

Comparison Sites – These websites have a huge presence, but their mortgage offerings do not reflect the entire market. You may be missing out on a good deal because they website doesn’t display it high enough. The mortgage market moves daily, so it’s important to keep up with the best deal.

Arm yourself with these 4 tips when you head out to find a suitable mortgage, or better yet, just hop over to Habito– they do after all exist to make mortgages as easy as possible
