And I’m up at 3:40am so thought I’d check out if there are any bargains that I need 😁

If you’re posting anything specifically for me please do @ me or I may not spot it. It’s helpful if when sharing bargain info you bold it to make it easy for people to differentiate between chat and bargain links.

Thought I’d do a ‘how to’ for a couple of things people often post about not being sure of <gets out teachers blackboard and chalk>

To do click links you do this [[ put link in here then a space then the name or phrase you want to go with the link ]] . Don’t put a space between the start of the link or the last word next to the [[ ]] like I have or it won’t work but I had to to demonstrate.

Some top tips from thelegohooverer:

My tips are:
check out companies on trustpilot before ordering
be wary of companies that only have email/contact firms for customer services and no phone numbers or addresses (unless of course you enjoy meaningless replies from bots)
keep a list of what you’ve ordered so you can follow up if something doesn’t arrive. Sometimes it’s a numbers game where they’re betting on people not following up on missing orders.
check where things are shipped from, particularly if you need them quickly. I’ve got caught out waiting for the slow boat from China when I thought I was ordering locally.
I’ve started using Revolut to avoid putting in my main bank details (and it helps me budget)

Aliexpress have lots of stuff very cheap, order early as it’s all delivered from China here . Be aware some items are a bit knock off in quality and safety, check reviews and be aware. Clothes can come up v small and take the photos with a pinch of salt as a guide for what you will get.

Amazon free delivery tool here

Camelcamelcamel is a brilliant site that tracks prices on amazon here

Lisa angel sale is popular when on, apparently arrive nicely packaged too here

Magazine subscription offers here and here

Netpricedirect has discount toys and party bits here

Toys for a pound here

Hello all. If anyone sees a Magic Mixie (pink) for any less than £70 could they post and let me know. I begrudge paying so much for absolute tat but my 6 year old has asked Santa for one. Annoyingly they had them discounted on that Argos code earlier in the week but they seem to all be out of stock now. sad

StarfishSleeper Fri 26-Nov-21 05:23:16

Thanks for the new thread

Not been on here for a while... Looking for a while and we have moved on by a thread or 10!

Looking for an argos code to buy a digital camera for £89.99

Had bought an iPhone specifically for taking photos (not to use as a phone) and have am now locked out (was in the bathroom whilst toddler had phone) and now I need to log into iTunes and have no idea how to, and will probably lose the pics anyway...should have really got a digital camera to start with... But yes any argos codes will be welcome!

Kwackerly Fri 26-Nov-21 05:30:22 Elizabeth Scarlett have lovely velvet constellation makeup pouches back in stock, other designs too, bees, birds etc. I bought Capricorn and Leo plus a purse and a scrunchie for £48- buy 4 items 40% off.


clpsmum Fri 26-Nov-21 05:36:42

I'm looking for deals on tablets and mobile phones if anyone knows of any. I dont have a clue where to start tbh

Hunnybadger1 Fri 26-Nov-21 05:45:38

stepfordwifey Fri 26-Nov-21 05:49:02

Bubble and Bathe have 20% off shower steamers. £3.50 postage.

Laney79 Fri 26-Nov-21 05:50:43

Bit late to the party but I saw on a previous thread about tonies - I have a very nearly 2 year old boy (new years Eve baby) and I'm wondering if this would be a sensible buy even if not for immediately, perhaps for a few months time? He loves music and by the sounds of it nursery has one or something similar that plays songs and he adores it!

So what's the best price anyone has got for a starter kit? Any Black Friday/discount codes about? Thanks!

Laney79 Fri 26-Nov-21 05:56:22

And anyone looking for stocking fillers/cheap gifts Rex of london have some stuff in their offers section -I bought 5 different patterned bamboo mugs for £1.95 each (postage was 3.99 I think but still kept them below £3 each) for my sons nursery team.

They have lots of random little bits that may help someone out

millenialblush Fri 26-Nov-21 05:57:26

Orelia have 25% off, nice affordable jewellery for xmas gifts and party accessories

Morning. brew
DD had 18th birthday party so am so tired I'm capable of buying Gary Barlow himself by mistake today.
I bought myself the same tablet DD has yesterday from Amazon. Not massively discounted, I got it for about £100 instead of £150- there are certainly bigger discounts for more whizzy tablets but DD has been v impressed with hers. I'll link in a sec. I really rate Huawei.

SapereAude Fri 26-Nov-21 06:02:53

And thanks @Reastie star

Twilightstarbright Fri 26-Nov-21 06:08:01

@Laney79 can’t help with a bargain but I think a Tonie is perfect for an almost 2yo.

RandomCatGenerator Fri 26-Nov-21 06:13:39

Joining this thread!

Natural Baby Shower is having a sale across most of their items - including Stokke, Snuzpod, Babyzen, Silver Cross etc. Some are only 5% savings but some of the car seats are on 50% off and some good savings on expensive brand items

checkedcloth Fri 26-Nov-21 06:20:07

Hello. Does anyone have a Lakeland code ? Much appreciated!

Devoilmum Fri 26-Nov-21 06:22:00

@Laney79 I have a Vodafone code for 35% off a Toniebox Starter Set if it helps?

SapereAude Fri 26-Nov-21 06:22:37

It's this one.

Not much memory on this 16g which is why it's cheaper but DD did a whole year of online learning Zoom/Meet classes on it and it never faulted. I just wanted something so I'm not lugging a laptop around so got myself the same.

IggyAce Fri 26-Nov-21 06:23:40

Thanks for the new thread @Reastie. I finished the old one and am quite pleased with my early morning efforts at a song.

Laney79 Fri 26-Nov-21 06:24:40

@Devoilmum ooh yes please! Thankyou!

Fallagain Fri 26-Nov-21 06:25:26

Morning all,

WHsmiths has some discounts still on Melissa and Doug toys and £10 off a £50 spend.

I still need to buy a toy for my 5 year old. I’m tempted by those mixies but them seem extortionate for a bit of tat. Does anyone have any suggestion or deals for a fairy mad 5 year old.

Scrambledbeans Fri 26-Nov-21 06:27:54

Hotel Chocolat are doing 120 of their Nespresso compatible pods for £20 in the BF deals section. Now to work out how to get free delivery!

Devoilmum Fri 26-Nov-21 06:35:30

@Laney79 -I’ve PM’d it to you
