The Bargain Hunter: Grapes and gains

The Tesco Wine Festival began earlier this week, with more than 50 critically acclaimed wines reduced by 50 per cent. Unfortunately, I remain somewhat unenlightened on the subject of wine so, while I may be unable to recommend a bottle, Tesco suggests picking up one of its wines of the week: Blason de Bourgogne Montagny Vielles, now £42.66 per case, Castillo de San Lorenzo Rioja Reserva, now £28.44 per case and Blaxland Estate Shiraz, for £22.80 per case.

On an electrical impulse?

Comet has a number of interesting coupon deals at the moment, most of which end on 31 October. The electrical store's top offers include six months' interest-free credit on all purchases over £299, up to 7.5 per cent off freezers and up to 20 per cent of fridges. A slightly shorter-lived discount is £30 off a Sony KDL40EX503U 40-inch LCD TV which ends on Tuesday. For the specific coupon codes for each deal, visit http://ind.pn/aearNA.

Smart moves from Virgin

Virgin Media is attempting to make BlackBerry smartphones more accessible with a fantastic new contract deal. On a 24-month contract costing £12 per month, new Virgin Media customers will pick up a free BlackBerry CurveT 8520. Better still, existing Virgin Media customers can sign up for just £10 per month, while students holding a valid NUS Extra card get an additional 15 per cent off.
