Saving money on things you’ve just got to have!

Hi everyone!

I’ve been hunting high and low for new shoes! I went to Clarks and the ones I liked with almost £70. They looked just like the ones above. I kept hunting around for discounts and sales and came away with nothing. I’m glad I was running my daughter home and I hadn’t gone to the shops on a special trip. I’d just about given up when I had a look online.

When ever I buy anything at all, I trawl the net for discount codes, or promotional codes. I run the search in a variety of ways, put all the words in, without brackets and see what you can get. Also, look on Money Saving Expert as that’s where I found the promotional code that I needed today.  Then I try and run the discount code and get it through Quidco. I managed to get a 20% discount and 7.5% cashback,(Matalan clothing – until the end of the week has 7.5% cashback)  which really helped a very stretched new work clothes budget. Today, I managed to get a 15% discount plus free delivery on a discount code I found for Cotton Traders. The shoes are seen above £22, with a 15% discount and free delivery means I’ve got new work shoes for £18.70. Also, you can find free delivery codes for Tesco and Asda if you have a good search for them.

HERE IS THE ONLINE DISCOUNT CODE FOR COTTON TRADERS – VALID UNTIL THE END OF JANUARY 2012 – CHP2

MATALAN 20% DISCOUNT CODE STYLE20 – EXPIRES TODAY


CLARKS 20% DISCOUNT CODE – BEYOURS – THANKS FELLOW BLOGGER FOR GIVING THAT XXX

We all have to buy shoes occasionally, as we do undies or school uniforms or stationery for work or school, so it’s always worth looking for a cashback or discount code. So dear readers, do you search high and low for discount codes? If you have any codes, can you put them on your blog or send them to me to share with others. The retailers often hide these on their websites, or with third party discount voucher websites.

Until tomorrow,

Lots of love, Froogs xxx

  1. There is a 20% off discount at Clarks at the moment (bought my 4 year old's first school shoes instore there last week so was given the discount coupon – BEYOURS). If it's not too late you could return them and rebuy online?

    Not particularly frugal but they've a lovely new range of Mary Portas shoes there!

  3. Must be really lucky, my last 2 pairs of shoes came from charity shops, both brand new good quality black leather slip-on, £5.75 and £3.75. These shoes retail at something like £80.
