Bargain Hunter: Family visit to the flicks, with snack and drink - £7.15 a ticket


Vue has launched an all-inclusive family package, offering savings of 20 per cent on the cost of a trip to the flicks, at selected Vue cinemas.

The deal, in conjunction with First Choice, starts at £7.15 a person, which includes entry into a film of your choice, plus a snack and a drink for each member of the party.

The all-inclusive family package ticket is available at 80 Vue cinemas to groups of four people with a minimum of two children.

To find out if your local cinema is offering the deal, and to book tickets, go to myvue.com/first-choice

Longest-ever credit card balance-transfer deal

Barclaycard has launched a 0 per cent balance transfer offer lasting 33 months, the longest yet. However, it comes with a hefty 2.99 per cent handling fee.

You can check whether you are likely to be accepted for the card, before actually applying, by using the eligibility checker tool at barclaycard.co.uk. It leaves no search "footprint" on your credit record, so won't affect your ability to get credit at a later date.

O2 app offers lower data charges for travellers

O2 has launched a new travel app that includes city maps and guides to the best places to eat and visit in a particular city.

It also includes an option to sign up to a new, lower O2 travel tariff where pay- monthly customers will be charged £1.99 per day for the days they use data in Europe, and can access 50MB of data each day.

The app is available for download now in both the Apple and Google app stores. The O2 Travel tariff is available to all customers. Customers can opt in by texting O2TRAVEL to 23336.
