The internet’s done some amazing things for us. You can find almost any piece of information you need within seconds, contact friends whether they’re in the next street or on the other side of the world and, maybe best of all, you can use it to make some amazing savings.
What’s more, there are fantastic savings to be made targeted at precise groups of people, whatever their age or interests. These range from big discounts for students on everything from Spotify music streaming for £5 a month to 20% off the latest mobile phones or to money off baby and nursery equipment for new mums and dads.
In fact there are so many offers out there that it can be hard to sift through them all, even if you do use sites like this. So, to direct you to the biggest savings as quickly as possible, here’s a quick round-up of five great ways you can start making big savings today.
Top fashion brands, low, low prices
The Outnet offers massive discounts on luxury fashion brands
There are countless fashion sites offering big discounts and incentives like free postage and packing on goods, but few are quite as good as The Outnet. Launched in 2009 by The Net A Porter Group, it specialises in designer labels with new arrivals coming online every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
There are a comprehensive range of items whether you’re after a stunning party dress or a smart new look for work – as well as shoes, accessories and bags. To make sure you don’t miss out on the latest styles, the site even has a “Just In” section where you can snap up the latest bargains – and trust us, there are some serious bargains here.
For example just a quick search can find a Stella McCartney top for just £250, a 60% saving on the full price, or a red Versace mini-dress for just £90 – 50% of its original price. The site also has its very own clothing brand, Iris & Ink, which is even better for the budget-conscious, and equally stunning.
Make your money travel further with these holiday deals
Save on every flight with numerous airlines
It could be that you just want a great saving on a Eurostar to Disneyland Paris, but if your travel ambitions lie further afield, there’s a surprising name that can offer some very appealing discounts on long haul holidays.
You might not normally think an airline like British Airways would be making any great offers. That’s more what you’d expect from the budget airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet. But visit the British Airways site and click on the Flights and Holidays tab and you’ll soon be into some big savings.
The holidays are always changing based on availability, but the sorts of deals you can look forward to are up to 40% off flights and hotels in New York or up to 35% if you fancy trying your luck in Las Vegas. Head for the luxury holiday spots of Dubai and Mauritius and you’ll find the savings are even bigger still at up to 60% and 50% respectively. Plus you’ll be enjoying the comfort of travelling to and from your holiday on one of the world’s best airlines, too.
Earn as you play
Online bingo’s never been more popular and one of its biggest names, Wink Bingo, has recently come up with a great new way to make playing an even more fun and rewarding experience. It’s called Wink’s Shop and the way that it works is simple.
As soon as you start playing at Wink Bingo you start to earn rewards as part of a loyalty scheme that sees you amass one Wink Reward for every £1 you spend on the site, plus they also give you £10 worth of them just for starting to play. You can earn even more in their special daily challenges and weekly tasks, so your total can quickly mount up.
Then all you need to do is take your Rewards to the Wink’s Shop and spend them however you like, whether that’s on more games of bingo, free spins on the slots games or their special bonuses. If you like, you can even convert them into gift vouchers to spend at all your favourite stores and restaurants – and even on days out at some of the country’s most popular attractions. There are so many other bonuses and promotions to take advantage of at Wink Bingo – check out Wink’s best bingo offers here.
Say “cheers!” to wine at under half price
Supermarkets often have generous discounts on wine and prosecco but they’re nothing compared with the sorts of savings that shopping with Virgin Wines can get you. Like all of the products under the brand you can expect the experience to be fun, not at all snobby like some so-called wine experts can be. They’ve also sold over 80 million bottles of wine over the years so they certainly know what they’re talking about.
As a special introductory offer, they will send you a full case of 12 bottles of wine for £59.98, a 55% saving on the full price of £131.88. You can choose white, red or mixed plus they’ll even deliver them for free.
Then, if you go on to buy more cases in the future, they give you the chance to join their Winebank in which you pay in a fixed amount a month to be spent on their wines and they give you £1 back for every £5 you put in. Plus you get free next day delivery on every single order, saving you £7.99 per order.
Of course, these aren’t even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all of the special offers waiting for you online. But hopefully, they’ve given you so great tips as you continue to search for ways to save. So, payment card to handy, ready . . . steady . . . save!
