Watch our video where personal finance expert Harry Wallop gives his top five tips on how to save on every day and big ticket items with a few simple but effective tricks of the trade with research showing Brits are not as savvy as they think they are
Thanks to online shopping, discount sites such as Groupon, price comparison sites and retailers offering sales on an almost daily basis, paying full price for goods and services should be the exception not the rule.
But while according to new research released today by Lottoland.co.uk nearly ¾ of us consider ourselves to be savvy shoppers – the results of the survey show we’re anything but.
More than two thirds of us often or always just buy something on the spot without shopping around and more than half of us don’t go to any lengths to try and secure a bargain.
Consumer journalist Harry Wallop believes we could be missing out on huge discounts and savings, so he’s put together his top five tips that every shopper should know when it comes to saving money.
Watch our video where he counts them down.
The research was conducted by Lottoland.co.uk to coincide with changes to EuroMillions. Camelot will raise the price of a EuroMillions ticket from £2 to £2.50 on Saturday September 24th with the price rise applying for the first time for the draw that takes place on Tuesday September 27th. However, there are money saving alternatives for Brits, with the news that Lottoland.co.uk.co.uk will freeze their EuroMillions prices at £2, meaning players can continue to win all the same main game prizes, including the jackpot, but for 50p less than they would pay if they were to buy a ticket with Camelot.
