Here’s a timely offer for bargain hunters – cheap beer and an exclusive chance to win a crate of champagne to arrive just in time for a New Year’s Eve party.

First the deal: you can get 10 per cent cashback through the CheckoutSmart app when you spend £20 or more on 24 top beer brands – including Becks, Bud, Leffe and Stella – at online retailers such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons and Ocado.

You need to buy by 31 December but can spend £20 at different retailers to qualify. You can view the offer on the CheckoutSmart app – which can be downloaded from Apple Store or Google Play – and then shop online as normal and upload an image of your delivery receipt to the app.

Now the competition: to win a case of six bottles of Lansons Black Label Brut NV, simply answer the following question and email the answer to by next Thursday, 16 December. The question: a jeroboam contains four bottles of champagne, but how many bottles does a rehoboam contain?

Cut-price bestsellers

The bookshop chain Blackwell’s is offering 30 per cent off 662 of 2015’s bestselling paperbacks, including H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald, down from £8.99 to £6.29.

Buy at or at branches.
