It pays to shop around

It amazes me how many people don’t shop around for bargains. Now I love a bargain, and spend a fair bit of time researching the internet for the best price. This time of year will see a lot of the shops go head to head as they compete for our business in the run up to Christmas. Argos already has their 3 for 2 toy offer on at the moment. Now my daughter has asked for an annoying thing a Furby for Christmas. Now the minute the kids go back to school I start thinking of the C word !!! Yep I am one of those annoying people who like to be all done and dusted by the 1st of December. So last night I started the ‘Great Furby Research’.  Its priced at £48.74 in Toys R Us (which is actually reduced from £64.99). People had posted that B+M were selling them for £39.99. The cheapest I can find it is £35.00 from Amazon with free delivery. That is a £13.74 saving !


Next on the list was an iTunes voucher for the tween. He wanted a £25.00 voucher which of course should cost me £25.00. Quick google on the internet and I found Boots have them on offer for £20.00. A great saving of £5.00. It was also reported that Tesco were doing the same offer, but they were still £25.00 at my local Tesco.

Another item on daughters list is the Lego Shopping Mall. Now this is not cheap and retails around the £80.00 mark. It did drop to around £60.00 a few weeks ago when Smyths Toy Shop had a 20% off weekend. Tesco is selling the set for £64.00 but unfortunately they are out of stock at the moment. This is a good price and means I can cash in some of my Clubcard vouchers making it even cheaper. Just hope it comes back into stock and stays at that price.


Keep an eye on ‘Deals’ websites such as and also (hotukdeals have a great app too). Here you will find all kinds of offers and discount codes which are especially good in the coming few months. Happy bargain hunting.
