A guide to discount websites

Andy Stevens / 17 March 2015

A simple guide to help you navigate the various discount websites, offering you hot deals and money-saving bargains when you shop.



1 vouchercodes.co.uk

The vouchercodes website is one of the leading online names to help you save money with daily discounts across a variety of goods and services.

You'll find big high street names, vouchers for restaurants, savings on health and beauty, men's and women's fashion, technology and more.

 

2 vouchercloud.com

Not to be confused with vouchercodes, vouchercloud offers three different and easy-to-use categories of online discounts, depending on your preference.

You can choose to pick up your discount offline with the option of a print voucher or a mobile voucher. With the voucher code option you click through to the retailer's website where you can apply your discount.

 

3 wowcher.co.uk

You'll probably have seen the eye-catching Wowcher discount website advertised on TV. As is pretty much standard, you'll be asked to sign up with a few basic details or log-in via email if you've used the site already.

What you'll discover is the promise of huge discounts on a genuinely mixed bag of products and services. These cover anything from courses and diplomas to electronic tablets and nests of tables, plus the usual comprehensive range of everyday goods, such as health and beauty items, fashion and home and garden.

You'll also receive cashback in the form of commission in your so-called 'Wowcher Wallet' should you make purchases through the site's list of retailers.

4 myvouchercodes.co.uk

This leading UK discount site is less brash that some of its competitors and gives you all the access you want to its selection of high street discounts in a clear and effective style.

If you browse myvouchercodes on your smartphone, for example, you go straight into its selected top 50 best deals. These comprise many price-slashing deals with big high street names, including restaurants, cafes and bars. And sign up by email for access to the site's best free top 50 vouchers, codes and discounts, sent directly to your inbox.

 

5 hotukdeals.com

This site has more of a quick trade-like feel to it, which you'd might expect more from an online auction website. You'll find a mixed bag of practical high street discounts which could help you make small but useful everyday savings on your shopping.

The instructions on how to claim your discounts are clearly explained, with the necessary vouchers and codes just a simple tap or click away.

 

6 topcashback.co.uk

Topcashback is a polished and well-presented offering which claims to guarantee the highest cashback for users. It's a breeze to sign up and start trawling for discounts, and it includes the likes of utilities, broadband and mobile phone offers among its range of money-saving deals.

 

7 homediscount.co.uk

More than 20,000 products for home and garden are available in the range of this online discount retailer. And their website claims savings of up to 75 per cent are available on certain items.

Free UK mainland delivery is also offered, as is a 'price match promise' should you spot an item from the home discount range sold cheaper anywhere else.

 

8 livingsocial.com

A discount site with a difference which focuses on offers in your city, town or region. And as the name suggests, there's a social element to these savings; the offer of your choice will be free for you, if you share it with three of your friends via Facebook or Twitter and they choose to buy it too.
