Spend & Save

Bargain Hunter: Valentine's Day money-savers


A cut-price Valentine's Day may not seem a romantic gesture, but once your loved one sees your bulging savings, you're bound to be forgiven! For starters, you can effectively get a free box of chocolates through www.topcashback.co.uk. You'll need to register and go to the "Free Box Of Chocolates" page. You'll then need to spend £7.99 on a Luxury Valentine's Chocolate Box at the Chocolate Trading Company website for which you'll get cashback of £7.99. So what's stopping you? Enjoy!

It pays to buy more Greggs cupcakes

Not free but certainly aimed squarely at Valentine's Day are Greggs' new cupcakes. Their description says it all: "Dipped in pink and white fondant icing, edged with sugar ball sprinkles and decorated with a heart ring." Their full glory is pictured! The bargain part? They're 60p each but you can buy four for £2.20, thereby saving 20p.
