Top 5 Reasons to Use Dealspotr

DealspotrWorking from home might sound like I spend my day solidly writing articles, but in fact I have a number of different ways that I monetize my time. As well as working on social media campaigns, writing for my clients, editing and sourcing posts, I also make money through various third-party sites, and Dealspotr is one of them. Dealspotr allows you to find coupon codes, as well as allowing you to add them to the site yourself, and earning you money in the process. It’s a great site for a number of reasons and I thought I’d share some of them with you here:

1. Dealspotr Saves you Money

If we’re planning to make a purchase of something, we ALWAYS check Dealspotr for a discount code, voucher or deal. I’m pretty savvy when it comes to finding vouchers for things, but somehow the listings on Dealspotr seem to have ones that even a seasoned bargain hunter like myself hasn’t found yet! Of course, there’s not a voucher for everything, but so far, we’ve saved money on everything from pizza to days out to trainers and I reckon the value of what we’ve saved is probably into the hundreds of pounds now.

2. Dealspotr MAKES you Money! 

Setting up your own Dealspotr account is a great way to make yourself some money. Once you start adding the deals you’ve spotted, once they’re verified you’ll accrue points for every single find, and eventually this will add up to vouchers. Husband and I probably spend more money on Amazon than any other shop, so these vouchers do equate to practical funds for our family.

3. It Takes Minimal Time and Effort

When you add up the actual time you spend adding deals to Dealspotr versus the return, it’s actually really good value! Just a couple of minutes a day will add up really quickly towards your points balance and the vouchers you earn are on par with, if not more than the vouchers that you’d potentially earn on other sites of this type. Most of us spend time on our mobiles, tablets or laptops doing things to help us idle away the time, like playing Candy Crush or surfing social media. Take that time and dedicate it to deal spotting and you’ll be making your free time work for you.

4. Helping Others

I don’t know about you, but I really love the warm glow you get when you think about helping others! I’ve added a lot of vouchers to Dealspotr in the time that I’ve been using it and when I think about how many other families like us who’ve saved money or potentially been more able to afford something because of vouchers I’ve found and added it really makes me feel good. Dealspotr Is like a little community where everyone’s goal is to help someone else to save money and that’s something that I absolutely love.

5. Dealspotr Saves you Time

There are a number of ways in which Dealspotr actually saves you time; first of all, it has a higher number of WORKING codes (how many times have you trawled through, added a dozen different codes to your basket before any of them actually works?!) than other voucher sites online. It also shows you a screenshot of the codes working on the sites, giving you a guarantee that the code is working. This means that not only do you save time by heading to Dealspotr rather than doing endless Googling to find a legitimate voucher code for your purchase, you’ll also save time on the Dealspotr site because you’ll know that each code is the real deal!

Are you a fan of Dealspotr? Do you regularly use the site or is this something that you’re planning to do now that you’ve read all about it? Do leave me a comment below as I’d love to hear from you.

 

Bundles Get You More Bang For Your Buck!

DealsTV, Phone and Internet bills can cost a lot these days for the top quality services that are available. Getting the best deals for your television channels, as well as your home landline phone usage and your internet broadband deals can be tiresome, hard to do and end up being very expensive. Getting a bundle from one company can see the total amount of bills that you are paying decrease sharply. This is without doubt one of the easiest and best ways for you to get discounts and find yourself paying the minimum amount for all the best deals on all three different things, which are, in this day and age, all essential for modern everyday life.

Not only does this often work out a lot cheaper, it is also a lot more hassle free, convenient and easier to pay and keep on top of. By choosing a bundle, there is a fixed price each and every month and your money only goes out to the same company every month, making managing your finances much easier. With separate bills coming from all over the place from several different companies, it is hard to keep on track and on top of what you are paying for and in some cases, this can lead to a lapse in concentration and see you forgetting to pay bills, which may be dangerous and less than ideal for managing your finances if you forget to pay a bill and it becomes overdue, as you may think you have more disposable income available to you.

By paying for all three services together and not separately, it also makes any repairs, maintenance, complaints or issues you are having much easier to deal with. Contacting the customer service department of any company can often be particularly bad in some cases and they have become somewhat notorious in daily life to the everyday home user, however, this problem becomes magnified when trying to communicate with potentially three separate companies, rather than just dealing with one, which is a major advantage of getting a bundle deal.

Which Bundles Are Available?

Many companies offer bundles at reduced and discounted prices compared to buying each service separately. One of these is the Sky bundle package, which offers a speed of up to 17 mega byte broadband speed and one of the largest selections of channels of any of the other bundle deals, with 270 channels. The contract is for 18 months and the price is competitive with many other companies. The broadband is perhaps not as fast as others, however, this is the compromise that is made between having a slightly slower broadband and having the best selection of TV channels. This package is ideal for people who use the internet casually and do not require an extremely high speed for things like running your business from home or for people who are avid gamers.

Other packages are also available from many different companies, with the main companies offering the largest savings and some of the best deals being BT, Virgin, Now TV and EE, all of which offer bundles to save you money by paying your phone, internet and TV as one package payment per month. In terms of the cost, several different bundles will vary and this is due to the quality of each service that you pick. Choosing a Sky bundle for example can be tailored to your individual needs to get the right bundle for you and in terms of the general cost and price range of the bundles from all the different companies that offer them, this will typically start from around £30, up to anything around £60, the large variation in price primarily due to the quality of services that the company you have chosen provides.

Top Tips For Bundle Shopping

It is always important to do your research and make sure you understand exactly what you are going to be getting when it comes to choosing the bundle for you, it is important not to just look at the price as this often does not tell the full story of the quality of services that you are provided with and whether this will suit your needs.

Need to Save Money? Time to Negotiate!

Most of us are feeling the pinch at the moment – January is a painfully long month after the huge expense of Christmas and with living expenses seemingly on the rise every day it’s a wonder any of us can still afford to function! There are things that you could be saving money on without even knowing it, just by giving your service provider a call (check http://www.number-directory.co.uk/ for alternative numbers to cut down waiting times). Here’s a few of them to start you off:

Energy Companies

Many of us are using an energy tarrif which is by NO means the cheapest one for us, so calling your energy providers and asking them to reasses your usage is a really good idea. Also, if you pay by Direct Debit and are in credit, it’s worth asking them to reduce the amount they tale each month.

Mobile Providers

My current mobile package gives me unlimited texts and minutes, plus 20GB of data and I know for a fact that, even as a heavy mobile user, I rarely ever reach anywhere near my limits. This month, I’ll be looking at my actual usage and contacting my service provider to see if they have a deal which better suits my needs.

TV Providers

In our house, we have every channel known to man through our TV service, but spend most of our time either watching Netflix or moaning that there’s nothing on telly, which would suggest that we’re paying for packages which are of no use to us! Our contract isn’t up until the summer, but when it is I’ll definitely be calling them to renegotiate our deal. Don’t be afraid to play hardball or threaten to leave if you don’t offer you anything better! And, if needs be, DO actually leave, even if you have your partner start a contract as a new customer as they always get the best deals!

Car Insurance

I’m not going to lie, I’m dreading my car insurance renewal this year, after my incident with the cyclist last summer, but I know for a fact that I won’t be accepting my current insurer’s first quote. I’ll do a lot of shopping around for a good deal and then seeing if my current provider will match it. If not, I’ll be switching straight away!

Loans and Credit Cards

If you have any outstanding loans or credit cards it’s always worth looking for new deals with 0% rates for balance transfers or first-year deals. This will allow you to save money on the interest you may be paying on any money borrowed and if you have a lot of credit, this could represent a really big saving. It’s also worth getting independent financial advice to see if your mortgage deal is the best one for you.
