Tesco shopper? Here’s how to get 10p a litre off petrol

MOTORISTS can save 10p a litre on petrol or diesel if they spend at least £60 online or in-store at Tesco.

The offer will be a welcome relief for motorists who have seen the cost of fuel spiral in recent months to their highest prices in four years.

Average unleaded prices now stand at 131.6p a litre, while average diesel prices are 136.7p a litre, according to comparison website PetrolPrices.com.

To take advantage of Tesco’s offer, you need to spend at least £60 after discounts and promotions are applied on one shop either in-store or online between now and November 4.

When you pay for your groceries in store, you’ll be given a receipt that will include a fuel discount coupon – this must be redeemed within two weeks.

If you’re shopping online, you’ll get a leaflet containing the fuel coupon when your groceries are delivered or when you Click+Collect – this has to be used by November 18.

Three ways to cut your fuel costs

HERE are three ways to drive down your fuel costs:

  1. Make your car more fuel-efficient. You can do this by keeping your tyres inflated, taking the roof rack off, emptying your car of clutter and turning off your air con when driving at lower speeds.
  2. Find the cheapest fuel prices. Use PetrolPrices.com. All you need to do is enter your postcode and tell it how far you want to travel (up to 20 miles).
  3. Drive more efficiently. Some ways to do this, include:
  • Accelerate gradually without over-revving
  • Always drive on the highest possible gear
  • If you can, allow your car to slow down naturally as your brake is a money burner
  • Re-starting your car is expensive, if you can, keep moving

To redeem the coupon, simply fill up your car at a Tesco petrol station – up to a maximum amount of 100 litres – and hand over the coupon to get your discount.

The offer gives you 10p off every litre of fuel. So say you load your car with 30 litres of unleaded at the average price of 131.6p, you’ll save £3 taking your bill from £39.48 to £36.48.

For the full terms and condition, see Tesco’s website.

Sainsbury’s and Asda’s mega-merger is being probed over fears it could send petrol prices sky-high.

But there is good news for motorists as Theresa May has frozen fuel duty AGAIN in a victory for The Sun.

The Government is also being urged to ditch an expected insurance premium tax rise in the forthcoming Budget that adds an £200 extra per year to bills – including car insurance.

How Sainsbury’s shoppers can DOUBLE their Nectar points

NECTAR card holders may want to hold off spending their points until next month because Sainsbury’s has announced when it’s holding this year’s double up event.

Every year, the supermarket gives shoppers the chance to get ahead of their Christmas shopping by doubling their Nectar points when they spend in store.

Nectar points are a loyalty scheme where customers can collect points to spend with certain retailers.

Eagle-eyed shoppers have spotted details on the upcoming event on the Sainsbury’s app and spilled the beans on HotUKDeals.

Between October 29 and November 4, you can exchange 1,000, 2,000 or 5,000 Nectar points for a double up voucher either in store or online.

During the event, 1,000 points is worth £10 instead of £5, and the maximum you can claim is 5,000 which is worth £50.

What can I spend my double up points on?

SHOPPERS must choose what category they want to spend their double-up voucher in before cashing in on the points. Here's what you can spend them on:

  • Cosmetics
  • Electricals
  • Entertainment
  • Fragrance
  • Gifts
  • Homeware
  • Seasonal goods
  • Skincare
  • Taste the Difference wine, champagne, sparkling wine, sherry and port
  • Toys
  • Tu clothing .

You’ll only be able to spend the vouchers in store between November 12 and 18.

Shoppers can only redeem the coupons on specific ranges including toys, Christmas decorations and homeware, as well as Tu clothing, skincare and fragrances.

But there are a few catches. You’ll have to choose what department you want to spend your vouchers in before you cash the points in.

You will also need to spend the voucher in one go.

For example, if you have a £40 voucher and you want to buy a £15 pair of jeans then you’ll either need to choose another £25 worth of clothes or else forfeit the remaining value of the coupon.

Shoppers can only redeem them in store which means you can’t use them on online orders.

Even though you can collect Nectar points by shopping at Argos, Asos, Debenhams online, Disney Store online, Easyjet, eBay, Expedia and Three mobile, you’ll only be able to double up at Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s is trialling a new Nectar card scheme but it could see some customers missing out on loyalty points.

It’s also making a massive change to how Nectar points work. Here is how to maximise the amount of nectar points you earn on your shop.

According to experts, we might soon see Nectar points in Asda after the supermarket merges with Sainsbury’s. Here is how the merger will affect your shop.

Thousands of homeowners overpaying mortgage by £4,000 a year – here’s how to cut bills

THOUSANDS of homeowners are overpaying on their mortgage by more than £4,000 a year because they don’t know what deal they’re on.

Consumer group Which? found that a third of homeowners are unaware how much interest they pay on their mortgage repayments.

Thousands of homeowners could be over paying their mortgage by thousands every year
Getty – Contributor

Out of the 3,500 homeowners surveyed, a quarter of them were on their lender’s standard variable rate, which tend to cost more than other products available from the same provider.

This is compared to 55 per cent who were on fixed rates, 10 per cent on trackers, and 5 per cent on discount rates.

According to Which?, borrowers with an average-priced home could end up paying up to £4,164 a year – or £347 a month – more on their lender’s SVR than if they were on the lowest fixed-term rate.

This figure jumps to £8,724 a year, or £727 a month, for homeowners in London.

How to switch your mortgage

Here's what the Money Advice Service says you should watch out for when you're thinking about switching your mortgage:

  • When to switch your mortgage. You should check if you can save by switching your mortgage when your current deal is about to come to an end, if your lender changes your interest rate, or once a year if you’re not tied into a deal with early repayment penalties.
  • How to find the best deal. You can use comparison websites to search for the best mortgage deal or, if you need a bit more help deciding what’s best, use a broker. If you use a broker, check what fees it charges and if it can look for deals across the entire mortgage market.
  • Check for remortgage costs. There might be high early repayment charges to pay if you are leaving before the initial fixed period ends, and there may also be an exit fee if you leave your existing lender. When it comes to the new lender, you might be charged valuation and legal fees as well as a booking or arrangement. So check that it’s worth switching once the fees have been taken into account.

But when those who were on the same SVR for the past five years were asked why they hadn’t switched, one in five (22 per cent) said it wasn’t worth the hassle and one in seven (15 per cent) claimed that they hadn’t thought about it.

David Blake, Principal Mortgage Adviser, Which? Mortgage Advisers, said: “I would urge anyone with a mortgage to check what interest rate you’re on and whether you’re paying more than you need to.

“The remortgage market is highly competitive at the moment, so there’s a good chance that remortgaging will save you money.

“Speaking to an independent mortgage adviser is a great place to start to find out your options.”

Here is our guide to how long to fix your mortgage for after the interest rate hike.

And these are the banks you can get a mortgage from WITHOUT having to show your statements.

Plus, here’s why a mortgage with a lender you’ve never heard of could save you HUNDREDS of pounds.

WH Smith to start closing stores as high street struggle continues

WH SMITH is to close six stores after reporting a fall in its yearly profits – the latest retailer hit by the high street’s struggles.

The beleaguered stationery, books and gifts chain has not yet revealed which high street stores are to close and how many jobs will be affected by the closures.

Six WH Smith high street stores are to close
Six WH Smith high street stores are to close
PA:Press Association

WH Smith has 610 high street stores in the UK, meaning that 0.9 per cent will close.

WH Smith said the six stores closing were “loss-making” because of “onerous” high street leases, and that they will close when their leases expire.

It made the decision after reporting a fall in profits for its high street stores from £62million to £60million in the year to August.

The retailer said it is now focusing on its travel stores, which are its shops located at airports, train stations, service stations, universities and workplaces.

Why is the high street struggling?

HERE we reveal why there is more pressure than ever on high street shops

Recent analysis by the Labour party showed there are 100,000 fewer Brits working in the retail industry than there were in 2015.

Last year alone, the high street lost a total of 1,800 shops.

Companies blame the rise of Amazon and other online shopping sites for driving footfall away from town centres.

Labour also points to price-gouging by town centre car parking firms, and to look into shops being left empty by landlords.

Meanwhile the Liberal Democrats want to abolish business rates and replace them with a tax on the value of land.

Influential Tories are calling on Chancellor Philip Hammond to fast-track a 3 per cent tax on the likes of Amazon, eBay and Google to “level the playing field” with UK business and help the high street.

It opened 20 more in the last year, bringing the total to 581 stores.

It’s also about to unveil a new extended version of its current shop at Heathrow Terminal 4 in the coming weeks.

It is thought that staff at the six closing stores will be moved to other WH Smith shops to prevent job losses, but this has not yet been confirmed.

As well as the six store closures, WH Smith said it would end a trial of smaller WH Smith Local stores, and close CardMarket, an online trading card gaming marketplace.

Stephen Clarke, group chief executive of WH Smith said in a statement: “We had a good year in high street despite the well documented challenges of the UK high street.”

He added: “Despite this good performance, we are not ignoring the broader challenges on the UK high street and, during the second half, we conducted a business review to ensure our high street business is fit for purpose now and for the future.”

It hasn’t been the best year for WH Smith as in July it was named the UK’s worst high street shop, with customers complaining it’s expensive, out-of-date with rude staff.

It’s the latest retailer to be affected by the struggles plaguing the high street, with French Connection announcing this week that it could be up for sale.

Meanwhile Debenhams is trying to beat the pressures on high street stores by opening a new flagship shop containing a gin bar – after announcing plans to close 10.

Children’s ‘squishies’ toy shaped as a cake recalled over fears kids could choke on it

PARENTS are being urged to check through their children’s toys after a batch of popular “squishies” have been found to be a risk to their youngsters’ health.

An urgent recall has been issued by the European Commission for the cake-shaped squishy toy over fears tots could choke on it or suffocate on the plastic packaging.

The European Commission says the toys could be mistaken for food
Trading Standards

There are hundreds of different types of squishies but the warning is about a specific cake-shaped one called the “Slow Rising Scented Squishy”.

Originally made in China, it looks like a slice of pudding, coloured pink and white and has a strawberry on top.

The European Commission has categorised the toys as a “serious risk” and said that the products do not comply with the requirements of the Food-imitating Products Directive and the Toy Safety Directive.

Authorities warn that because of its shape, colour, appearance and size, a child could mistake the toy for food.

The batch code can be found on the back underneath the barcode
Trading Standards

Which squishies are being recalled?

NOT all squishies are being recalled. The warning issued by the European Commision refers to a specific toy, so it's worth checking if you have one at home.

Name: Squishies – Slow Rising Scented Squishy

Model number: 67887

Batch number: 5053944678878

Risk: Serious – choking and suffocation

Small parts can easily come off if they’re bitten into and can cause tots to choke on them.

The warning also says that the plastic packaging is too thin and too large, which could cause a child to suffocate.

The squeezable foam toys are similar to stress balls and are mostly imported from Japan and China.

It’s not clear where this specific cake-shaped squishy was sold but you can buy squishies from retailers such as Claire’s, The Works, toy shops and online from sites including Amazon and eBay.

The recalled cake shaped squishy has an item number of 67887.

They also have a batch number of 5053944678878 which you can find underneath the barcode on the cardboard top of the packaging.

If you have one of these toys you should stop using it immediately and return it to where you bought it in exchange for a full refund.

The toys have already been banned in Denmark after tests found that a batch of them contained harmful chemicals.

If children inhale these hazardous substances it could cause them breathing problems, and in the long-term can cause fertility and liver damage.

Earlier this year, a nine-year-old British girl “suffered chemical burns” after her Soft’n Slo squishy toy burst in her hands leaving her screaming with pain.

It’s unclear if a UK ban is likely to come into force, although this recall could be the first steps towards one.

Save on your chocolate habit by swapping the big name bars for these cheaper alternatives — plus how you can win £15,000

NOW here’s a truly sweet saving for you.

The Twin Peaks choc bar became Poundland’s fastest-selling item ever when it was launched last year.

Under the wrapper, it looked a lot like Toblerone and it tastes like one too. But it costs around £3 less.

No wonder the makers of Toblerone weren’t happy. Poundland has since changed the shape.
Here are some more choc swaps to slash your supermarket spend.

  • Best for Bounty hunters. Nuts about coconut? At Sainsbury’s, a pack of ten treat-size Bounty bars costs £1.50. But Aldi has you covered with Romeo bars — just 85p for ten.
    SAVE: 65p
  • Get a Twix fix. Biscuit addicts would have to shell out £1 for a four-pack of Twix at Morrisons — still good value at 25p a bar. But at Lidl, Mister Choc Caramel & Biscuit bars are 81p for five, around 16p a bar.
    SAVE: 19p
  • Are you a Snickers seeker? The peanutty classic is £1.50 for four at Sainsbury’s. But we like Tesco’s Nutty Nougat Caramel, which tastes just as good. It is just 85p for six, or just over 14p per bar, as opposed to 38p for the Snickers.
    SAVE: 65p
  • Mad on Milky Ways? They usually cost around £2.79 for a fun-size pack of 18, although you can get them for £1.69 at starbargains.co.uk.
    But Aldi’s Dreemy bars are just 81p for 15. They cost just over 5p a bar, compared to 9p. Those little savings soon add up.
    SAVE: 88p
  • Lindt for less. Lindt are the ultimate luxury bars . . . and the price reflects that. The Lindt Excellence Dark Orange Intense is £1.50 per 100g at Tesco. Try the similar JD Gross 70 Per Cent Dark Ecuador Chocolate with Orange at Lidl for £1.29. You get 25g more for that price too.SAVE: 21p
  • PRICES on this page correct at time of going to press. Deals and offers are subject to availability.

Aldi’s selling a 99p jelly bean roulette for Halloween – and you could get rotten eggs, chilli or onion

ROTTEN eggs, onion and chilli are not flavours you want to find in a bag of jelly beans.

But you could be unlucky enough to eat them if you buy a bag of “jelly bean roulette” from Aldi for 99p, which is new for Halloween.

Aldi has launched a "jelly bean roulette" for 99p a bag

The Jelly Bean Trick Or Treat? bags contain a mixture of nice and nasty flavours.

You could either be treated to cola, blueberry, or vanilla, or tricked into eating ginger, pepper or even a bean that tastes of rotten eggs.

They could be a good buy for trick or treaters on Halloween as the kids will think they’ve been given delicious sweets when really they could be eating an onion or chilli-flavoured jelly bean.

They’re similar to Jelly Belly’s Harry Potter-inspired Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, which also have a mixture of delicious and disgusting flavours – but they cost £3.50 a bag at John Lewis compared to 99p for Aldi’s version.

The trick or treat bags of jelly beans are part of a range of Halloween-themed sweets at Aldi, which also includes 99p Lollies and Mallows, and a tub of sweets for £2.99.

It’s not the only Halloween themed bargain around.

Aldi is also selling an inflatable Halloween arch for £40 so you can decorate your home.

Meanwhile Asda is selling adorable ghost-shaped crumpets for £1 a pack.

Toys ‘R’ Us lenders cancel bankruptcy auction and plan to revive and expand brand

TOYS ‘R’ Us could be saved after its top lenders cancelled a planned sell-off of the brand on Monday.

Court filings show that an auction of intellectual property attached to the bankrupt retailer — including its brand name and famous Geoffrey the Giraffe logo — was called off at the last minute.

The move in the US may see the beloved chain brought back to life in the States initially before a revival abroad — potentially including the UK.

Its debtors want to kick-start the brand into opening new shops just months after it went into administration.

The lenders also plan to expand its international presence and further develop its private brands business.

Toys ‘R’ Us filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the US in September last year.

But the company changed course in March saying it would sell its operations in Canada, Asia and Europe, and shut down in the US.

Its 106 UK stores began closing down in March — leaving at least 3,000 staff out of work.

Up to 40 per cent was slashed off prices in its closing down sale in all stores in an attempt to shift stock.

Aldi plans to open 130 more UK branches in next two years creating 5,000 jobs

BUDGET supermarket Aldi has confirmed plans to open 130 new stores in the UK over the next two years.

The move will create 5,000 jobs and help it reach its target of 1,000 stores by 2022.

There will be 130 new Aldi stores opened in the UK in the next two years

The discounter is already Britain’s fifth largest supermarket with 775 stores open so far.

It attracted 1.1million new shoppers in the last year alone.

Aldi has also outlined plans to boost its range of British suppliers, who already account for its core range of meat, eggs, milk butter and fresh meat.

The supermarket said it currently spends more than £100 million each week with more than 1,000 local suppliers.

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK and Ireland, said the supermarket’s investment signalled its “continued commitment to growing responsibly in the UK”.

“That means having a positive and lasting impact on the economies where we operate and improving the lives of British people,” he added.

“In 2020, Aldi will have been serving British shoppers for 30 years. In that time, we’ve become part of the fabric of British life.”

The new stores will be supported by three new warehouses planned in Sheppey in Kent, Sawley in Derbyshire; and Bedford, as well as the extension of existing distribution centres in Darlington and Bathgate in West Lothian.

The expansion announcement came as Aldi revealed that sales grew 16.4 per cent across the UK and Ireland to a record £10.2 billion in 2017.

Full-year operating profit rose 26 per cent to £265.9 million.

Discounters, like Aldi, have eaten into the market share of Britain’s so-called “big four” supermarkets.

Aldi now accounts for 7.6 per cent of all UK grocery store spending, according to Kantar Worldpanel data.

And rival Lidl – which currently has 710 shops in the UK – has previously said it plans to open between 1,200 and 1,500 stores in the long term.

Hurley said: “Savvy customers know they can swap and save with Aldi, thanks to great quality products at lower prices.

“This is happening on a massive scale, with more than 1.1 million new customers shopping with us throughout 2017.

“While other grocers introduced more complexity into their businesses in their struggle to win back customers, we stuck to our guns and focused on doing what Aldi does best – buying smart, staying lean, improving quality and keeping prices low.”

In September this year, Tesco unveiled its new discount supermarket, Jack’s, which it hopes can take on discounters Aldi and Lidl.

Tesco plans to open between 10 to 15 branches of the new chain over the next six months, as it tries to tempt back customers from German discount rivals.

At least five of these stores will be existing Tesco branches.

Two new stores have already opened in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire and Immingham, north east Lincolnshire.

Stores will have have far fewer products – just 2,600 compared to tens of thousands in normal Tesco branches.

Just like Aldi and Lidl, Jack’s is focused on selling British produce with eight out of 10 products in stores made or produced in the UK.

Win tickets to meet Gary Barlow and enjoy meals out with the family with these top tips

A TREAT meal out is great for families, but ouch — they are expensive.

Sun Saver Lucy, from Bradford, emailed us to say she is desperate to cut down the cost of eating out with the family. She found out they’re spending just over £10 extra a week because the kids ask for extra drinks and desserts.

Everyone enjoys eating out at restaurants every one in a while

To help, we gathered top tips so you get something for nothing at restaurants.

VICKI PSARIAS, aka blogger Honest Mum and author of Mumboss, says: “Go to restaurants that provide set menus for kids, as this will be very cheap. At Zizzi’s you get three courses and a chocachino for just £6.75 as opposed to £19.95 for an adult.

“Also, stock the freezer with multi-pack deal lollies, which you can buy cheaply at Asda (get five Fab-style own-brand lollies for £1) and show them to the kids before you go out.”

You could save £13.

HOLLY BELL, the Great British Bake-Off,  says: “I save up Tesco Clubcard Vouchers, where 50p of vouchers means £1.50 spend in places like Prezzo — where a main and dessert costs around £15. I also take advantage of the kids meal deals and enforce a one- juice rule. Any other drinks are tap water only.”

You could save £15.

JO MIDDLETON, aka blogger Slummy Single Mummy, says: “Vouchercodes.co.uk or Quidco are my go-to. They have deals giving you up to 25 per cent off your food bill or special offers, including kids eat free.”

You could save £10.

JOJO FRASER, blogger and author of Mummy JoJo Uncut, says: “Take some chocolates in your bag to save on dessert. Download restaurant apps or sign up to email newsletters before you get to the restaurant to get a deal or discount off your food bill. For example, download the GBK app and get a free side or milkshake (worth around £5) to keep kids happy.”

You could save £5.

RICKY WILLIS, aka blogger Skint Dad, says, “You can get 2-for-1 meals at restaurants for a year with Compare The Market. All I did was buy a one-day travel insurance for £1.05.” Get 2-for-1 on meals at Ask Italian. Mains costs around £12.

You could save: £10.95

He said: “I was scrolling through my phone on a Sunday evening and as I use Sun Savers, an advert for Q Live came up and I figured I’d give it a go.
“It was really easy to use and I had a free life, which helped in the game I won the money with. The app is easy to use and clear as day on my phone. Charlie, the presenter, was quite funny too.”

WAREHOUSE worker Beth Roome, 26, was at home with fiancée Chelsea Vevers, 29, when she won almost £350 with Q Live.

Beth, from Rochester, Kent, says: “Chelsea told me to download the app. I wasn’t that bothered at first but I made it more interesting by competing against her. She was struggling and didn’t know the answers but I made it all the way to the end. Although she was happy about the money, she wasn’t happy that I beat her.”

  • Q LIVE is free to download and play. The prize is split between all players who answer 12 questions correctly. Towie’s Gemma Collins co-hosts Q LIVE tomorrow to give away the next £10,000. What have you got to lose?
