For a limited time M&S are doing free delivery to USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

If anyone has friends and family to ship presents to, this might save a few pounds.

Don't know if anyone's mentioned it but the IKEA Duktig toy kitchen is reduced to £45 for the base unit and £20 for the top bit, rather than £66 and £24.

Vans 50% off sale and free delivery

My character pjs arrived this morning and they are great.

In fact because it is windy, wet and cold here today I have declared a pyjama day and have given the DCs their new pj's and they are wearing them already!

They love them, I will be ordering more for Christmas asap.

Booo hiss. Just a heads up everyone that apparently Amazon are scrapping free super saver delivery on items under £10 (unless you buy something media related like a CD, DVD or a game).

So presumably, in future, we should try to bundle Amazon small purchases together with a media item included, so that the package can qualify for free delivery.

JaquelineHyde Tue 30-Jul-13 11:49:58

I pay for Amazon prime, I was sceptical at first when I signed up for a free trial but now 3 years later it saves me a fortune as I buy loads on Amazon.

Reastie Tue 30-Jul-13 12:05:21

I have amazon prime too but I've noticed recently they term alot of things as 'add on items' meaning I have to have a minimum purchase of £20 to get them delivered. This hasn't seemed to be every item, but an increasing number of smaller items, so prime isn't everything.

JaquelineHyde Tue 30-Jul-13 12:10:01

I will have to watch out for that Reastie as I've not come across it before.

Murtette Tue 30-Jul-13 12:19:57

ASDA has the Playmobil soldiers' fort and the soldiers' boat half price (so about £10 each rather than £20 each)

LaTrucha Tue 30-Jul-13 12:21:58

Jumping back on - although I think I'm almost done!

JaquelineHyde Tue 30-Jul-13 12:27:19

Oh no the thread is almost full!...Any volunteers to start a fresh one?

Huffpot Tue 30-Jul-13 12:42:31

Thanks oreocrumb - will def look into that as most of my family is in Oz smile

Reastie Tue 30-Jul-13 12:45:43

Oh no jacqueline ! I've started updating the OP with posts of links of items from this thread for the next one but not finished yet and am just off out.... DOn't be too chatty whilst I'm gone wink Will try and get something done by this evening.

JaquelineHyde Tue 30-Jul-13 12:59:35

Just found this bargain on the argos website. Haven't seen it linked to on here yet and my DCs have been asking for them. I've managed to reserve 2 locally to me but at different stores so stock is low by the looks of it.

platespinnermum Tue 30-Jul-13 16:09:32

craigslittleangel Tue 30-Jul-13 16:17:01

I have just come back from visiting my nearest Home Bargain store and for under £8 I think I have everything for my eldest stocking!!! No tat either. Will worth a visit if you are near one.

Someone up thread mentioned they did little Christmas style things that you can put in advent calendars. Could you let us know when you spot them. My Home Store is a car journey away and I don't always go to that area of town.

PoppyWearer Tue 30-Jul-13 16:46:36

thanksthanks For the Vans sale and the Peppa Pig book. Got some shoes for both DCs (£12.50, brilliant!) and also book for DC2's Christmas haul.

Thanks for the character.com tip, just ordered 4 pairs of pyjamas and 2 backpacks for £22 inc. delivery, excellent value!
