The Bargain Hunter: BA break could cure post-Games blue

 

Are you suffering from the post-Olympic blues? If so, you may not be alone. Travel agents are reporting a spike in last-minute bookings from people eager to extend the feel-good factor of the Games. If that appeals to you, there are a number of ways to score a bargain at the same time. The best deal comes via British Airways who are offering customers 70 per cent off luxury Indian Ocean holidays. Visit http://ind.pn/ObX5ev for the full range of discount breaks.

Heals décor deals to cheer up your home

If a holiday isn't on the cards, you can always bring a little cheer to your home with Heals' décor deals. Until 28 August, Heals is offering 20 per cent off its diverse range of cushions, including its badger, polka-dot and fake fur designs. Meanwhile, posh homeware store Oka is currently running a discount of 50 per cent on a wide range of items while stock lasts.

Laura Ashley's summer wear sale

Now that Britain's unofficial "rainy season" is reportedly set to return, Laura Ashley is in the process of selling off a whole host of women's summer wear even before the season has ended. The company is currently offering 25 per cent off a selection of summer clothing, which could set you up nicely for a much-needed Indian summer.

Four for price of two from Body Shop

Body Shop is running a four-for-the-price-of-two offer online at the moment. To take advantage, simply add four items to your virtual basket on the Body Shop website and then enter the code WINNER at the checkout. The two cheapest items will then be free. Delivery costs are £2.99, with the offer set to run until midday Monday.

Money-saving is on the menu at Zizzi

Finally, why not celebrate your gold medal-standard bargain hunting with a spot of cut-price dining? High-street Italian chain Zizzi is now offering 25 per cent off all food from their Bambini children's menu. The offer doesn't include the August bank holiday, but runs either side of that until September. Visit zizzi-offers.co.uk for more details.
