While stocks last, the M&S website is selling a child's cotton polo shirt for £1, a pure cotton jumper for £2 and a pair of adjustable-waist trousers for just £3.50. Better still, the company offers free delivery on all schoolwear products, below.

Cheap parcel deliveries

Speaking of delivery discounts, Parcelforce has launched a voucher code which entitles customers to 15 per cent off its UK and International services. Simply enter the code S4XE when arranging the delivery at and your postage costs will be reduced by the set amount. The code also works for the "express48" service, though the saving on that is only 10 per cent.

Gift of the Gaff

Giffgaff is an interesting mobile phone company which effectively hands control back to the user by shunning contracts in favour of a one-off payment. Customers must provide their own handset and then purchase a Giffgaff "goody bag" which includes a SIM card loaded with a variable mobile phone package. Current offers on its website include the "unlimited calls, unlimited texts, unlimited internet" goody bag, down from £35 to £17.50, and the "100 minutes, unlimited texts, unlimited internet" bag, down from £10 to £5.

PC World discounts

Some of the more popular deals on the website at the moment are the range of discounts that PC World is offering customers who are looking to buy a laptop. The extent of the discount is graded according to the price of the computer and starts at £10 off any laptop costing more than £349 and goes up to £100 off all laptops selling for more than £1,000.
