Bargain Hunter: Trade in your downwardly mobile handset for cash

 

Got an old, unwanted phone handset? You can turn it into cash through sites such as sellmymobile.com. For instance, an iPhone 4S 32Gb will fetch up to £126, depending on its condition.

The site also offers a "best price" guarantee so that if you discover a higher price elsewhere, SellMyMobile promises to refund double the difference.

Planning a barbecue or other garden activity this Easter? A pressure washer can help clean up outside and wash away the winter dirt. Until 21 April, Maplin has £50 off a compact pressure washer with a variety of attachments, cutting the price to £59.99. For details – and several other Easter offers – go online to maplin.co.uk.

A twist on the price with Southern Comfort Lime

If you fancy trying a different drink to sup on the terrace or patio, Tesco is offering Southern Comfort Lime at just £13 until 11 May – a saving of £4.50.

The 70cl bottle has a 20 per cent abv (alcohol content) and it is recommended you serve it with lemonade over ice.

Ocado's back-to-school offer on snacks and pens

Ocado's latest offer is aimed at parents planning for kids going back to school after the Easter break. The online shopping company has a range of lunchbox and schoolbag deals until 29 April. They include Mini Cheddars bite-sized 7 packs at 2 for £2, or £1.88 each.

Meanwhile a pack of Dairylea Dunkers Breadsticks has been reduced from £2.25 to £1.12 and a 10-pack of Stabilo assorted colour pens has been cut from £6 to £4. All offers are online at ocado.com.

Small suppliers go below £1,000 in energy shake-up

There's an energy price war – but only among the smaller suppliers. Last week Ovo launched a £998 tariff, and First Utility responded this week with an energy plan costing £4 less. Its iSave Fixed July 2015 (v20) deal is now the cheapest on the market at £994.

Mark Todd at the comparison site energyhelpline.com said: "Both Ovo and First Utility have fixed-rate tariffs costing less than £1,000 a year for a typical dual-fuel home. These new deals have created a massive gulf between them and the big suppliers' standard prices that most consumers pay.

"According to Ofgem [the industry regulator], a typical gas and electricity bill is £1,315 a year and provides no price guarantee for households. With the smaller suppliers, the cheapest bill is £994 and this provides a price guarantee until August 2015. This paints a very black and white picture for consumers in terms of the need to shop around to get the best energy deal.

"Consumers need to step back and ask themselves where they stand on standard prices. Customers should not take the gamble on their hard-earned cash, as switching can save them up to £321 a year."

Asda says it's master of the universe with Galaxy deal

Asda is claiming an exclusive for its £99 offer on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, which was previously sold at £139. The tablet comes with a high-quality camera, wi-fi, touchscreen display, 3G connectivity and an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
