Make sure you’re the first to land a bargain with our cash-saving top tips – The Sun


ARE you the tardy type? A school in Kent is fining parents £1 for every five minutes they are late to pick up kids.

But being an “early bird” on the school run is not the only way to acquire some speedy savings . . .

GOING SWIMMINGLY: With Love Island back on our screens, there has never been a better time to shop for summer early. UK retailers have slashed prices across swim and summer gear due to the hype around the show.  For example, official sponsors has 50 to 80 per cent off everything, while Boohoo has ten per cent off its swimwear collection. I found a stylish pink swimsuit on I Saw It First for just £17.50, usually £35.

SAVING: £17.50

MERRY STASH: The festive season may have been and gone but the January sales are still in full swing. They are a great opportunity to find and stash gifts, decorations and wrapping paper for less. Your wallet will certainly thank you when December rolls around again. I spotted various rolls of Christmas wrapping paper for £1.50 at Paperchase, down from £2.50.


SHOW ME THE SAVINGS: The early bird catches the worm — and this is certainly true with theatre and concert tickets. Sign up for updates and get those early release tickets for the best price and plenty of seat choice. I’ve been looking into a trip to see Mamma Mia!. If I book a Monday to Thursday show 16 weeks or more ahead of the performance date, I can save up to £20 on seeing the performance, thanks to the early bird scheme.

SAVING: up to £20
HOLI-YAY: There are often good deals for a last-minute holiday. But booking in advance can save you the most. At, use code SALE and save up to £200 on holidays from May until October. Plus, for some later options, you can book now and pay no deposit — giving you time to pay it off.
SAVING: up to £200

Reader's saving tip

BERYL COLLEY, from Manchester, says: “Congealed food on pans or casserole dishes will wash off easily if soaked in hot water and a tablespoon of soda crystals (about 79p for 1 kilo) for 15 mins.”
