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

Thanks Reastie. brew

Thanks for new thread. My M&S was also 20% off womens bags and footwear. Tempted as need new boots. The feee Percy pig cushion is the best one so far - hoping I get that I’d go in especially for that one grin

Also 20% off bags and shoes. Plus I'm still trying to track down my free Percy pig throw as I never got the elusive rare mystical Gary Barlow!!

Monstermunch67 Fri 03-Dec-21 07:32:32

My M&S was £20% off nightwear, so I plunged in and added a few different items, cashed out and completely forgot to include any nightwear. I am a bad, bad bargaineer.

Today's M&S offering was a free Fragrance Society beauty bauble worth £3.50. Available in selected stores only. Might pop to the nearest one on Saturday and have a look.

Froppysue Fri 03-Dec-21 07:41:55

Mine was 20% off women’s shoes and bags. Annoyingly I had a 15% off women’s clothing I didn’t see when I bought my mums Christmas outfit the other day!

MerylSqueak Fri 03-Dec-21 07:57:09

Skagen still have 40% off outlet today. Some great bargains (for me, which I must not buy grin)

Hi does anyone know of any discounts for Schuh or Office as I am trying to buy a ££££ pair of DMs for DD16! Something to soften blow!

Also, how do I access the M&S advent calendar? Nothing on my app. I feel like I am missing out even though I never shop there anymore!!!

whattheactualfudgecakes Fri 03-Dec-21 08:14:43

Any offers on things that can be used as a teacher gift?!

@user1466167893 have you tried Doc Martens own website. They have 10% off for new customers if you sign up

Froppysue Fri 03-Dec-21 08:58:44

@user1466167893 they have loads of docs on asos, 15% off just now for new customers (just use a new email address if you already have an account)
They often do 20% off days, or student codes but you never know when until the day unfortunately.

Anyone else having problems with deliveries? I've had so many items, most of them allegedly on next day delivery, just not turned up at all, or not even been dispatched 10 days after buying them!
