Coupons and Vouchers

It's the time of the year that the quarterly coupons and vouchers pop through our letterbox ... along with the charity begging letters containing 'complementary' Christmas cards, raffle tickets to sell and free pens, none of which even get properly looked at.  I choose who gets my charitable donations, and any organisation wasting that much money on postings are not included.

 Anyway in years gone by when we've been using our M&S and Tesco credit cards to pay for building supplies and larger items (always paid off in full at the end of the month of course from the money we had saved to make the purchases) the amount of coupons we received were brilliant and helped out during many a blog money saving Challenge.  Now with everything necessary purchased and our spending cut right back,  tbe coupons are much lower in value ... but still worth having in my opinion.

As you can see we have got £8.50 in Tesco Clubcard vouchers ...

...and our M&S card has given us a total of £6 in vouchers. 

We no longer have a Tesco credit card and just use a Clubcard to pick up points, most of which we accrue for fuel for the vehicles.  Although with Alan now predominantly working from home even our fuel bill has plummeted , thank goodness.

So my question to you ... what would you do with a grand total of £8.50 to spend in Tesco and £6 to spend in M&S?

  1. 'I have £6 in M & S vouchers too, and I shall use them on their next £10 'dine in'offer - a bottle of wine, a whole chicken, some veg and a dessert cannot be bad for only an extra £4.

  2. Silly woman; chocolate, of course!😀

  3. Buy something you normally wouldn't buy for yourself. A great. Or buy something you can't raise or grow or make.

  4. I would look and see if I could triple the points on the clubcard and get a membership to either Cadw or English Heritage. The ones for marks and spencers I would blow on frozen fish.

  5. i would first of all take the pictures down as you can read the online codes and possibly someone who's unprincipled could spend them for you :-)

  6. If you can, buy something special for your Christmas dinner.

    cheers, parsnip

  7. After all your hard work I think you should use them on some Christmas treats.

  8. I totally agree with the chocolate.

    God bless.

  9. I would plow it right back into groceries or items that would be on the "needed" list. Our grocery store has a program using reward miles, with a choice of redeeming the miles for credits on in-store purchases or for catalogue merchandise (for which they charge far more reward miles than they work out to be worth). I take the credit every time on my groceries. But if you are in the mood for a treat, do that!!

  10. Tesco clubcard do a boost offer so you could get a meal out or a day out etc. Have a look at there website for details if you're interested
