The Bargain Hunter: The more you tweet the cheaper you eat


Innocent is giving Twitterers a treat this week by supplying discount coupons to those using the hashtag #tweetandeat.

In a Groupon-style push for “collective buying”, Innocent will increase the discount on offer as the number of people tweeting about it grows. Users can keep up to date with the current discount level (at the time of writing it’s at half-price) by direct messaging @innocentdrinks and, should they get tired of waiting, can drop out at any time by printing the voucher at http://bit.ly/pqzdfn.

Supermarket delivers the goods

Sainsbury’s is now offering customers free delivery on all orders over £50 via its website. The reduction is valid in the supermarket’s home & garden, appliances, technology, entertainment and toys sections, but does not include groceries and ends on 31 December.

Do it yourself for half the price

B&Q launched a half-price sale earlier this week, with discounts available on indoor and outdoor lighting, 2.5litre standard coloured emulsions, wallpaper collections and winter fuel and grit. The sale runs until 24 November, although wallpapers will return to full price early, on 31 October.

Cash in on a bargain at Currys

There are huge savings to be found on the Currys website this week, particularly among white goods. The top deal has to be a Zanussi ZWH6160P washing machine, which can be bought for only £269, a £130 saving on its regular price of £400. If you’re looking for a slightly less significant investment, Currys is also selling Trend Micro Titanium Maximum internet security at half price, reduced from £60 to only £30.
