Turn off your lights!
The fastest and easiest way for you to save money – literally at the flick of a switch, is to turn off your lights (and plugs and anything left on stand-by whilst we are at it). Saving energy is not only good for the planet, it’s also good for your wallet! On the topic of saving money on the energy you consume, now’s the time to…
Switch your energy suppliers
Get yourself on to the best possible tariff or energy deal by switching your suppliers. Use websites like uswitch, moneysupermarkert and simplyswitch to find and compare the best and cheapest suppliers available to you. You could save yourself £100’s.
Use cashback websites
With 73% of Britons shopping online at least once a month, it makes sense that we sign up to online cashback services like Quidco and Topcashback. Cashback sites work by letting you visit a retailer via their link, do your usual shopping, then they track the purchases and pay you any cashback (which varies by site, special deal or offers). Some people have managed to earn themselves up to £250 a year extra, just for buying what they normally would through these cashback sites, so it’s worth a look.
Bargain hunt the lazy way
Nowadays there is no need to spend hours searching through junk just to try to find a gem (unless that’s your ‘thing’). It’s far easier to let the deals come to you – have a read on our Google Alerts article and see how you can never miss a sale or bargain again. Also, check out discount sites online, HotUKDeals is a great one for finding the best products at the cheapest prices.
Get yourself a Monese account
Make sure you never lose track of your spending by using a Monese account. When you sign up via the Monese app you receive a UK sort code and account number, which your employer uses to pay you, direct into your Monese account. You can also send and receive money in real-time, no waiting. You can make currency transfers for only 0.5% above the mid-market rate; which is one of the best rates available. Using our app you can also make payments, check your up-to-date balance, review your transactions, get paid to invite friends – plus much more!
