reastie thanks for starting the thread up again smile

Just looking on ELC and spotted a few items. I got this Crazy Chef Orchard toy game for 3.99 and this Schleich Feya for 2.74

A few more Schleich fantasy figures and Brio at half price. I had an old birthday club code which worked. It was a one off code though, sorry!

Just marking my place smile

Great. Will watch this with interest. Even if it is 6 months away!!!

SugarMiceInTheRain Tue 25-Jun-13 15:02:08

Marking my place too, I love a Christmas bargain and plan to start buying asap...

buildingmycorestrength Tue 25-Jun-13 16:51:05

Ooh, thanks for these!

notapizzaeater Tue 25-Jun-13 16:53:58

If making a hamper approved foods do some good toiletries as well as cheap food, got lots of duchy original hand creams last year for 99p a bottle

It's worth signing up for the book people emails. They have regular offers and promotions on - a little while ago they had the Lego brickmaster books on offer at a fiver each - instead of £8 and RRP is £20 so a fab saving (guess who got several for presents put by already grin)

There's currently a summer promotion and they often have offers of free delivery on for just a few days. They often tie them to events happening so things like wimbledon or end of term etc would be worth looking out for them!

zipzap Tue 25-Jun-13 17:19:28

Has anybody mentioned the dotcom gift shop's summer sale? That's on at the moment and lots of real bargains.

And the John Lewis sale is on at the moment.

zipzap Tue 25-Jun-13 17:22:28

And it's not christmas presents I know but saving money...

The M&S 20% off schoolwear promotion ends soon - just had an email through reminding me about the fact.

They used to call it their Back to School promotion (and that's what the staff in store are still calling it!) but they can't do that any more as they start the ruddy thing before the Summer half term holidays! [grump]

MortifiedAdams Tue 25-Jun-13 17:25:46

Anyone got a birthday code for ELC?

issynoho Tue 25-Jun-13 17:32:31

PoppyWearer Tue 25-Jun-13 18:14:22

zipzap dotcomgiftshop was a top tip, thank you so much!

Have spent £30 and made a serious start on the stockings for my DCs and a couple of bits for my "random presents" box too.

buildingmycorestrength Tue 25-Jun-13 18:42:19

I spent sooooo much at dotcomgiftshop. But lots of light things for posting to overseas rellies, and ...um...yeah. blush
