Although we’re not technically in a recession yet, we are certainly in midst of a downturn in the economy and with prices rising and wages stagnating (or even falling in real terms) I think most people are definitely feeling the pinch on their wallets.
However, everyone still needs to make some purchases, and there is one easy way you can save a few percent when shopping online; use a voucher / discount code. It surprised me that some of my friends weren’t aware of this, as I’ve been using vouchers for years to get a discount on anything from pizza to holidays.
Dominos regularly give out vouchers for 20% off online orders, and last year I managed to get 15% off a group holiday to Center Parcs. There were 18 of us, so that amounted to about £200 in savings! Hence why it’s definitely spending a few minutes searching for codes online.
A friend of mine has just launched a new site, which aims to have the largest and most up-to-date selection of voucher codes. They are investing a lot of time into checking all their codes and ensuring that they remain valid, and they publish the expiry date so you know when it must be used by.
It’s a good idea to start looking for codes in advance, as this year I missed out on getting a Center Parcs discount… there were no vouchers available when we booked.
