Check out the “Deals” section of The Sun app for great discounts on everything from food to clothing.

USE YOUR REWARDS: Check all your subscriptions and bills and make sure you are using all the services provided.
If you have Amazon Prime, be sure to use the free trial version of the audiobook.
Make sure you have the apps for your mobile operator. O2 Priority has different offers, while Vodafone’s VeryMe app does everything from cheap movie tickets to random giveaways.

The Boots Advantage card is always the best for me (shop on weekends for the big ‘extra points’ offers).
