The Bargain Hunter: Give the birds a helping hand

 

 

Ah, summer: sunshine, school holidays, the sound of birdsong coming from the garden. Or not. With the unsettled weather we've been having recently, it can be difficult for birds – particularly in cities – to sustain regular food supplies. So why not help out our feathered friends by hanging out a bird feeder? Haiths bird seed manufacturers have a host of deals on the go. Using the code V01 at the online checkout, and you can pick up a free Bird Table Scraper if you buy their Golden Crest Bird Table. Or, if you opt for the Robin Softfood Feeder, you can collect a complimentary 2kg supply of Softbill Food with the code V04. Check the offer out at http://ind.pn/kWAgGQ.

Summer break in the Lakes

While we're feeling summery, how about a trip to the Lake District to make the most of the season? Stately home-turned-hotel Winder Hall's Five Day Summer Break deal offers a 30 per cent discount if you stay in one of their fabulous double or four poster rooms. If you fancy something shorter, how about a two-night bed and breakfast break at 15 per cent off? With availability until September, it's a deal to make the most of.

Half-price for sunbathers

If you do decide to make a break of it, don't forget to pack some sunscreen. Sainsbury's is offering 50 per cent off Nivea's Sun Invisible Protect SPF 20, with 200ml now available for just £6.49. Also half-price is the perfect picnic to see you through the journey there: 200g cherry punnets are just £2, as are 400g packs of strawberries, and De Laurency Brut Champagne is down from £29.99 to £14.99. Find the offer at http://ind.pn/mSKdwv

Storming deal from Virgin

If all that saving has got you a bit exhausted, why not settle down for a bit of time in front of the TV? Virgin Media has a storming deal on its range of dual packages. Get broadband and TV at 5 per cent off by using the My Voucher Code discount, MYVOUCH50 at the checkout.
