The Independent Online

Forecasters have warned of severe winter weather this weekend so we've arranged an exclusive snap discount deal on Radflek Radiator Reflectors for Bargain Hunter readers.

The reflectors sit behind radiators to stop heat escaping and going to waste. The manufacturer claims that the technology means 95 per cent of the wasted heat from behind your radiator is reflected back into the room, providing instant savings and typically paying for itself in just over a year.

The reflectors come in three, five and eight-sheet packs at £21.99, £33.99 and £49.99 respectively and under our deal you can get 25 per cent off at by entering the code NDBHJA2515. The discount is valid until 31 January 2015.

How about a bargain break with your loved one where you can cuddle up and escape the cold? Jupiter Hotels has a "Love Winter" deal with an exclusive two-night package available at 25 of its Mercure hotels across the UK – from just £125 per couple.

The deal includes dinner on the first night, breakfast on both mornings, plus a two-night stay and complimentary use of the Feel Good Health Club at hotels in places such as Edinburgh, York, Gloucester and Manchester.

The offer is available on stays between now until 28 February 2015, while bookings must be made by 31 January 2015. To get full details and book, go to

Be lean and mean financially while feasting on takeaways

If you're belt-tightening this month but still partial to the odd takeaway, the specialist food-ordering website has launched a new section dedicated to saving money.

The site promises to make it easier for customers to find special offers and discounts, making the online ordering process cheaper as well as more convenient than calling a local takeaway.

Features include incentives such as reward stamps, so that if you order five times from one restaurant, you can get a 50 per cent discount on the 6th order. There's also a Taste Test offered for some restaurants that gives you a 20 per cent discount on your first order.
