Discounts are all white

Another retailer doing their bit for bargain hunters this Mother's Day is The White Company – a minimalist homeware business specialising in furnishings, clothing, candles and scents, most of which come only in white. To receive 15 per cent off all purchases at the store, just enter the code VC06 upon reaching its online checkout.

Shave 15% off your bill

Away from the Mother's Day savings, B&Q is offering 15 per cent off all products in store and online this weekend. The saving is part of a voucher code activated when entering the text APRTE12 at the online checkout, although it can also be claimed by visiting, printing the coupon and taking it with you to your nearest B&Q store.

Dotty online deal

Arcadia Group retailers Burton and Dorothy Perkins have launched a 30 per cent off sale this week. Unfortunately the offer is an online exclusive and runs for a limited time only but its still well worth taking a look as there are savings on all ranges. Visit or for full sale inventories.
