Topping and tailing the week on value, dear reader, I've had a little surf through cyberspace seeking specials. Having toweled myself down, and dried my hair, I can now share with you a bunch of 'nothing to do with racing, nothing in it for Bisogno' freebies or discounts that many of you may beÂ able to avail yourselves of.
We're talking money off food, free samples of stuff, and so on. If you like paying full price for everything, then fair enough. If you're like me, however, and can't resist a bargain, you're in for a treat...
So let's get cracking. There's stuff below covering stuff as diverse as credit reports and toiletries!
(One small statutory point - I haven't used all of these offers myself, so please check the small print before you take them up. I've had a cursory squint to make sure it 'looks' ok, but that is not tantamount to me saying it is ok... hope that makes sense).
And one other point - the promo codes have been sourced from two sites called freeinuk.co.uk and vouchercodes.co.uk. Any codes in the below offers may give them a kickback, but you have my assurance that there's nada in it for me. I'm just trying to give something back to you lovely people! 🙂
If you live anywhere near Poole or Swindon, you can get free entry, a racecard and a drink by printing off the relevant coupon below.
Wimbledon - Dine for Â£1 and get free admission with this voucher:
Sittingbourne - Two for one entry with this voucher:
Lovefilm has a two week free trial of their 'posted to your door' DVD rental service. Get free postage both ways,Â no obligation, no contract, and no due dates or late fees. If you decide to become a member, they also have over 1500 films you can watch online then and there (assuming you have a broadband connection - do not try this with dial up!)
GAP - 30% off everything at GAP between 21st and 29th September. Sign up here if you're interested:
La Redoute - Seeing as we were looking at the Arc yesterday, I thought this cool French clothing company might be of interest. They're offering Â£15 off an order of Â£20 or more. So, basically, you can get a Â£20 shirt or blouse or whatever for a fiver.
Code is 8401, and the website is www.laredoute.co.uk
Dorothy Perkins - if you or someone you love is a fan of 'Dottie P', then you/they can get 20% off until Sunday.
Code is DPVIPA, and the website is http://www.dorothyperkins.com
Food / Drink
Toby Pubs - If there's a Toby Carvery near you, this is a cracking offer. Two courses (including a roast dinner) and ice cream for a fiver! You have to eat before 6.30pm, but that seems fair enough to me...
Print the coupon here: http://www.toby-carvery.co.uk/images/stories/_downloads/voucher-sept09.pdf
Pizza Hut (Delivery) - Buy one, get one free on all delivery pizzas ordered online.
Code is PFECOL1EB, and the website isÂ http://www.pizzahut.co.uk/delivery/
Pizza Hut (eat in) - get 50% off your food the next time you go to Pizza Hut.
Go to http://vouchers.pizzahutoffers.co.uk/50percent and follow the prompts.
Pizza Express - my favourite pizza restaurant by an absolute mile (since my dad closed his place anyway!). And they're doing a lunchtime offer of two pizzas for a tenner!
Go to http://www.pizzaexpress-offers.co.uk/ and follow the prompts.
Strada - aside from Pizza Express, the only other Italian 'chain' restaurant I eat at. Their pasta is great. And until the end of September, you can get a starter, main course and a glass of wine or a beer for Â£15.
Go to http://www.stradaoffers.co.uk/offers/home and follow your nose...
O'Neill's - A confession: my friends and I regularly have 'football boys' nights out at O'Neill's, and we tear the place up! So, to help me and my muckers line our stomachs first, the fine people at O'Nelly's are offering a free pint with your tuck.
Go to http://www.oneills.co.uk/offer/freeguinnessredrockshandyoffer/ and do as it says.
Molton Brown - The posh soapsters (further confession: I love their stuff!) at MB are offering not just free delivery but also a free men's grooming kit worth Â£15 on every purchase of over Â£35. So you can buy a loved one a Christmas present, and treat yourself at the same time! Perfick.
Code is MENS, and the website is http://www.moltonbrown.co.uk/
Mesh Computers - If you need a new PC, then you might consider these guys who are offering a free 8Gb USB Pen Drive with purchases of their Mesh ICE computers. (If you don't know what a USB Pen Drive is, you don't need one!)
Code is 8GS301009COMP, and the website is http://www.meshcomputers.com/
Hopefully something in the above might save you some money. If you want to keep up to date with these offers, there's a great website with lots of changing offers from week to week at http://www.vouchercodes.co.uk
Finally, time for some Thursday Fun. And, seeing as I'm in penny-pinching mode, it has to be my old mate Rigsby. Leonard Rossiter is in my opinion the greatest comedy actor of all time, and Rising Damp is an absolute classic.
Here we find Rigsby in customary buffoon mode, as he attempts to woo Miss Jones... again!
p.s. Were the voucher codes of use to you? Leave a comment, good or bad, and let me know. If it's not of interest, then I'll not do it again! 🙂
