If you like going out for meals and like a bargain too, sign up for a 'Tastecard' trial - it's free for 30 days and you can get 50% off at some eateries and 2 for 1 at others. It doesn't cost you a penny and you don't have to cancel it when the deal expires. New members only, one per household.


Got 2-for-1 vouchers for Thorpe Park, Chessington etc.? Check their online prices at least 6 hours before you plan to go, it could be cheaper than using the 2-for-1 vouchers on the day, and would save queuing too!


Be suspicious if tickets are being sold for events that have already sold out or haven’t officially gone on sale.  Use sites that have a red, black and white kitemark provided by the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR) with the words ‘secure tickets from authorised retailers’ and those that are members of the Association of Secondary Ticket Agents (ASTA).


If you are joining a dating website, make sure you know what you are signing up to by reading the terms and conditions clearly and understand the cancellation period.


Love going to the cinema but not so keen on the cost? Register as an ‘Insider’ at Showcase Cinemas and get £5 admission on Sundays from 7pm and all day Monday and Tuesday.
