From beauty freebies to cut-priced cabs – tips to keep those lockdown savings


HEADING outdoors this week might leave you out of pocket.

A new survey by Autotrader reveals 41 per cent of us have saved at least £1,000 through staying home in lockdown and not spending. Today that changes. I have found some great offers to keep your finances on track.

BEAUTY FREEBIE: If this week for you is about beautifying, head to Superdrug. For a limited time, you will get a free product when you purchase skin and haircare items. The gift is available while stocks last and products offered depend on the store, but ranges include St Tropez, L’Oreal and Aussie.

Boots has also announced a “make-up exchange promise”. We can’t yet test make-up in stores but if you pick the wrong shade, you have 35 days to exchange it . . . even if you have opened it. A brilliant idea.

CUT-PRICE CAB: Big night planned? Uber is offering a 50 per cent discount to those heading out for the first time this week. Add code THEPUBAWAITS to the promo section in the app before booking a trip. The code is valid until May 16, or when the first 30,000 riders have used it. See uber.com.

DAY-OUT DISCOUNTS: Planning a family day out this week? Our Sun Superdays return soon, so look out for those. But right now you can get 25 per cent off an English Heritage annual pass via Travelzoo. It takes the family price from £64 to £48 and give you half-price entry to loads of places around the country.

CHEAP CLOBBER: Asos has an “April 12 Edit” with certain items discounted, plus a sale with up to 70 per cent off thousands of styles.
Studio.co.uk has essential wardrobe updates for as little as £4. And PrettyLittleThing has 20 per cent off everything with the code GET20 and a going-out section.

PIPING HOT: To celebrate Costa’s 50th birthday, all barista-made hot drinks will be 50p for three days, kicking off tomorrow. That includes up to three extras or alternative milk for 50p. Download the Costa Club Mobile app and scan it in-store to claim yours.
