Bargain Hunter: Win a free burglar alarm and gain peace of mind and cheaper cover
To mark Neighbourhood & Home Watch Week, Bargain Hunter has linked with the insurer RIAS to offer two readers the chance to get a free £200 burglar alarm in an exclusive competition.
With security in mind, the insurer researched customers and discovered that almost nine out of 10 of us believe we would be prepared to use force on intruders.
Peter Corfield, managing director at RIAS, said the responses are understandable: "The prospect of an intruder entering your home is a frightening thought."
Having a decent alarm installed can give you early warning of a burglar, but it can also deter thieves as they're much more likely to target an unprotected home.
It can also help cut the cost of cover as insurers give discounts for home-security measures.
That's why we're giving away two £200 Yale Premium alarms courtesy of RIAS. If you're out, the alarm will ring you when triggered and can store up to three phone numbers, such as mobile and work, and call them in a specified sequence. To be in with the chance of winning one of the top-of-the-range Yale alarms, email the answer to the following question to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 26 June.
The question: in which 1990s film does an eight-year-old boy fight off two would-be burglars?
