New section to let MNetters know of good offers you've seen in the shops - what do others think?

Today I was out with my own ds amd minded kids (I'm a childminder) and I seen a really good offer on in Boots. It was buy 2 of these things for £3 -kandoo wipes or handwash, there was something else in the offer but I forget now!!

Anyway I was just thinking, I'd have missed this offer if I hadn't been in Boots today and there must be loads of good offers I miss regularly. Oh and I got 2 Felicity Wishes fluffy hot water bottles for £2.25 each! Bargain! Could be a one off though who knows...

So what I wanted to ask the MN team and other MNetters do you think it would be a good idea to have a section of good offers we might be interested in to alert other mums/dads of bargains we might miss otherwise? I get e-mails from Martins website that tells of good offers every week in the shops, but TBH they've never appealed to me, I thought "parent or child" related offers would be more useful.

Oh and I don't mean an advertising section for companies, I mean genuine offers we've seen in the shops that other MNetters might relate to.

What do you all think?

Yes, great idea. Would definitely use it.

Agree. Great idea.

i would love that.

People generally just post those sort of offers under Products, I don't think there's necessarily a need for another separate section (although perhaps that's just me being a miserable old git )

sounds good to me!

I'd certainly find it useful,don't always think to look for that under products.

more topics??

ssd Wed 15-Jun-05 21:31:29

The topic could be "Offers".

anyone else agree/disagree?

ssd Wed 15-Jun-05 21:44:05

I thought this suggestion would be more popular!..

Or are you all loaded?

Had a look at Products but it seems to be used for an entirely different reason...not many special offers there.

Agree cheapskates would be a good title!

ssd Wed 15-Jun-05 21:52:33


have you tried superdrug or Sainsbury's? (haven't read other thread)

helsi Wed 15-Jun-05 21:53:37

yes good idea. thinsg like BOGOF's and discount sales etc.

Miaou Wed 15-Jun-05 21:59:03

have to say, I would look under "products" for such an offer. Perhaps the topic thread title could be changed to "Products and Offers"?

We'll put this on the agenda for our next meeting. In the meantime, please post any you see!

emmamama Fri 17-Jun-05 19:45:00

Could put discount codes on as well. Never pay Tesco delivery charges again!
