Discounts, Sales and Bargains thread !!!

Hello everyone,

I love a bargain like the next person, so have started this thread for the money savvy few of you.

Id like to make this thread a place where people can log and tell everyone about any deals that they have come by on the net or where they live.

This can range from clothing to stationary and from cds to Power tools.

Any great websites that you might know that offer great bargains or discount ideas are also welcomed.

Maybe your favourite store that you have noticed offering a brilliant deal. Let us know.



Ill kick us off.... Check this one out:

    do you know that your student card is not good enough to get the discount in the local bath by mine you have to fill out a form for them to contact the university or college and then they write back and then you get acard from them , that is the only way you can get a student discount !!who could be arsed with all that !

    Yes!!!

    I keep buying stuff on HUKD lol... I'm meant to be saving money too :(

    Saved a fortune on RRP right enough but it tends to be stuff i wouldn't normally have thought to buy..

    I like http://www.everydayisblackfriday.co.uk/ as they are independent and they compare the prices to the previous price instead of the RRP price like many other deal finder websites, so retailers can't really hide the real discount rate as they have a 30 days price history chart for each product :)
