Bargain Hunter: Breaking good - download drama and comedy firsts free of charge

 

If you've heard people talking about the cult TV show Breaking Bad but never seen an episode, you can now download the first-ever one for free.

Blinkbox, the no-subscription streaming service owned by Tesco, is offering a "Try TV On Us" promotion this month, with 28 first episodes or pilots on offer. If you prefer sitcoms, there's New Girl and How I Met Your Mother, while other drama shows in the offer include Sherlock and Endeavour.

To download any or all of the first episodes, go to www.blinkbox.com/trytv/ where you'll need to register with your details.

Ease the financial strain when you travel by train

Until 24 February, families can get £10 off a Family & Friends Railcard that will help them cut the cost of going by train.

Anyone buying a one-year Railcard using the code HALFTERM10 at www.railcard.co.uk/halfterm will save £10 off the normal £30 price of a one-year card. With a Family & Friends Railcard, you can get a third off most adult rail fares and 60 per cent off kids' fares.

Cinema chain lays on the cheap seats for half term

Vue Cinemas has a range of offers and discounts this February half term.

The deals run from Friday 14 to Sunday 23 February and include tickets from £1.75 for 2D films and from £3 for 3D films.

On "Super Tuesday", film fans will be offered up to a third off tickets at all 82 Vue cinemas nationwide.

Meanwhile, special Teen tickets will offer 20 per cent off. Visit www.myvue.com/savings-offers for full details of all the discounts.

Digital backpack lifts weight off children's shoulders

A new digital backpack has been launched to ease the back pain experienced by up to half the nation's schoolchildren, as well as potentially saving them money on books.

It includes a Google Android tablet, Bluetooth pen, and carry case, which in total weighs 94 per cent less than the average two-stone schoolbag.

Available for £69, HappyBird could also be a money saver for students who may otherwise be forced to fork out hundreds of pounds for textbooks. Visit www.iamhappybird.com for further information.

Book now and save before the first cuckoos of spring

If you've not yet booked a spring break, there is a range of cut-price deals at www.holidaylettings.co.uk.

A group of 16 could book the Villa Victoria in Barcelona for a week in April and save £4,802, for instance.

Or book a late stay in an eight-bedroom Cotswold home and you could save £1,072. There are also skiing deals and summer breaks on offer.
