12 Months XBox Live Gold Membership £19.94 @ CDKeys with Facebook Like

 12 Months XBox Live Gold Membership £19.94 @ CDKeys with Facebook Like

It's gone down again and now it's less than £20 for the first time! The XBox Gold Live Membership is always a good price at cdkeys, but this is now the lowest ever. They are selling a 12 Month XBox Live Gold Membership for £20.99, but when you 'Like' their Facebook page you will get an individual code generated that will give you an extra 5% off, taking the price down to only £19.94!  You just click at the top of their page where it says "Click here to get 5% off!", enter your email, and you get your discount code!

The membership is a digital download, so you get sent a code by email rather than a physical card in the post, and it's just about instant once you have purchased. When you enter the code on your XBox 360 or XBox One the 12 months subscription will add on top of whatever you have left of your old one, so you don't need to wait for your current subscription to expire to use this.

It really is a big saving, as if you bought this direct from XBox the 12 months membership should cost you £39.99, so this is half that price!

If you've read this far then I imagine you already know what the subscription gets you, but you can find all the information on the cdkeys link above.

Mamas & Papas have their 'Bank Holiday Treats' event on at the moment with 20% off selected items across many departments of the store.

There are big reductions of up to 60% off furniture sets this weekend if you are getting a nursery ready, and there are some lovely accessories as well to finish off the room.

Maternity wear has reductions of up to 30%, and you can also grab 20% off selected baby-wear, buggies and travel accessories, highchairs and feeding equipment and more.

There are some beautiful items of children's and baby-wear reduced, including lots for Christening and Occasion Wear*, as well as the super sweet Fifi Lapin* baby range.

You can click and collect for free from Mamas & Papas stores, except for large furniture items. Home delivery is a bit pricey at £4.95, but when you spend over £50 it's free.

These offers are just for the Bank Holiday Weekend, so they finish tomorrow night.

 Extra 10% Off Everything Including Sale @ Millets

If you like a bit of the outdoors life, or are planning some camping trips with the kids then this Bank Holiday Weekend you might want to take a look at Millets. They already have some great offers on, as well as a massive sale, but you can also get an extra 10% off everything with the voucher code SALE10.

Click here to shop @ Millets*

  • Discount: 10% off everything, including sale
  • Expires: Monday 25th May 2015
  • Code: SALE10

As usual I checked out the Sale first, and looking at the kids sale there are some fab prices. There are decent waterproof jackets from Peter Storm that were already half price, and now work out at just £9 each with this voucher code! I'm off to check I hadn't already bought summer waterproofs in earlier sales. There are accessories that work out at just 90p, tops from £2.25, t-shirts from £3.15, fleeces from £3.60, and waterproof jackets start at £6.75!

You don't have to use the 10% off code on the sale items, as it will work on anything at all on the site until the end of Bank Holiday Monday. You can click and collect for free of you have a Millets store nearby, or home delivery charges are from £2.99.

(EXPIRED) Lego Minifigures Series 13 (Add-On Item) 41p each @ Amazon!

(EXPIRED) Lego Minifigures Series 13 (Add-On Item) 41p each @ Amazon!

If you have anything sitting in your shopping basket at Amazon then you might want to add some of these quickly! The Lego Minifigures Series 13 are down to just 41p at Amazon!

The only thing is that the figures are being sold as an Add-On Item, meaning that they can only be sent with orders that total over £20. There is also a limit to 5 per order, but that's fairer if it stops people from stockpiling to sell them on I suppose.

The £20 total order you need for the Add-On Items to be sent included the price of the add-ons themselves, so if you're grabbing 5 of them (and why wouldn't you?) then that's £2.05, meaning you need to have other goods totalling £17.96 in your order. As you're spending over £20 delivery is free as well.

I had been faffing about not replacing our old carbon monoxide detector (I know, sorry) but now it's on the way, along with 5 Lego Minifigures for the price of 1!

Big thanks to MapleLeafs @ HUKD.

FREEBIE: Toby Carvery Chef School Trip

by Nada in Freebies on 24 May, 2015 at 11:57 am

 FREEBIE: Toby Carvery Chef School Trip

I don't know about you but I LOVE a roast dinner on a Sunday. Toby Carvery call themselves "The Home of the Roast", as much as I prefer my own home-cooked meals, we do go to such places when I cannot be bothered and we enjoy our meals. Toby Carvery care so much about the children that may use their restaurants that they run a Toby Carvery Chef School and are offering FREE Educational Trips for School Groups.

What does this Toby Carvery Chef School Trip involveThe school children will learn about the ingredients used in Toby Carveries, focussing on the huge range of vegetables that go into a carvery dinner. The children get a chance to feel, learn and taste a variety of fruit and vegetables and are shown how they are not just important for health but how they enhance a meal.

The trip lasts half a day and here's the best bit...all participants get a FREE Carvery Lunch. The school group with also be given a photograph as a momento of their visit. Bagsy, being the mum helping on that school trip!

Here's an example of a trip to Chef School from Toby Carvery:

10:00am Children arrive at their local Toby Carvery
A member of our team will be waiting to greet the teacher and their class.
10:05am Welcome
Introducing Toby Carvery and its famous roast dinners.
10:10am Vegetable workshop
A practical session for children to learn all about our veg in its raw form, before it's freshly prepared for our guests to eat.
11:10am Photographs
An opportunity to pose for a memento of the day.
11:30am Carvery demonstration
A Toby Master Carver reveals their skills in serving our freshly roasted joints – and teachers are invited to have a go.
11:45am Time to eat
Chef School pupils can help themselves from the carvery deck, enjoying a nutritious lunch filled with the delicious ingredients they've learned so much about.
12:15pm Goodbye – until your next visit...
Everyone heads back to school.

Joovy Caboose Stand On Tandem Double Pushchair £137.19 Delivered @ Amazon Seller: JDWS UK

by Nada in Deals on 24 May, 2015 at 9:28 am

Joovy Caboose Stand On Tandem Double Pushchair £137.19 Delivered @ Amazon Seller: JDWS UK

This has to be one of the niftiest Tandem Pushchair I have ever seen. Look at it! It's pretty cool and makes perfect sense. It's designed for parents that have a baby and a toddler/pre-schooler. Buggy Boards are an option but I found myself stooping with those. I really wish I had known about this pushchair when my eldest two were little. What's it called? Joovy Caboose Stand On Tandem Double Pushchair. You can get it for just £137.19 delivered from Amazon Seller JDWS UK.

The Joovy Caboose Tandem Pushchair can carry two children. The eldest is able to stand on the back, like they would with a buggy board (but without you needing to stoop). If their little legs are super tired they can sit down on the seat, facing whoever is pushing the pushchair.

The front seat can move into three-positions and the rear bench seat is padded with a safety belt. You can get a car seat to fit the front instead of using the seat when your baby is new. Joovy claim that it's light enough to push with one hand too, which if true is handy.

As far as I can see the pushchair seat itself is only suitable from six months old but as said above you can get adapters to put a car seat on to the frame.

This is such a great idea in theory but what about it's actual efficiency? It has a 4.6 star rating and the reviews are great too, so maybe this is the pushchair for those of you with small children of different ages.

Peppa Pig Shopping Play Set £17.49 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 24 May, 2015 at 8:26 am

Peppa Pig Shopping Play Set £17.49 @ Argos

We have told you about this Peppa Pig Shopping Play Set from Argos before, but we have never seen it this cheap. It is reduced to just £17.49 from £49.99. That's a big saving of £32.50. If you have a birthday coming up for a wee one then they will just LOVE this set. Peppa Pig is a hit with most under fives and I think if my boys admit it, they still don't mind watching it.

The Peppa Pig Shopping Play Set features Mummy Pig, Peppa Pig, George, a free-wheeling car, a stackable Vet's, Café and Toyshop, plus six pieces of connecting road track. You can see why this was originally priced so high, although I never would have paid that.

Argos have some other great play sets reduced heavily that small children would love. Check out this Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Slidin School Bus* reduced from £19.99 to £6.99 and the Postman Pat Pencaster Flyer Set* was £24.99 now just £12.49.

You can Reserve and Collect the Peppa Pig Shopping Play Set or the others from an Argos store near you for FREE or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your door.

Going on holiday soon? You will need to get the kids some warm weather clothing. F&F are offering 20% off any clothing or accessories in their Holiday Shop. The great thing is that you don't need to faff around with promo codes as the discount just comes off automatically at the checkout. Got Clubcard Vouchers?

I like it when retailers reduce or offer discount on items that are in season. After all, they know we will buy them regardless. There are 416 items available to buy with a good mixture for boys and girls.

I just think this Tropical Print Dress* is a steal at £2.40 to £3.20. It's as summery as you can get really with it's bright floral print and cool material.

These F&F Jersey Shorts* are now only £2.40 and this Marvel Hulk Vest* is just £2.80-£3.60. You can grab those summer essentials for less.

It's not all clothes either, how about some poolside footwear? These Cut Out Clogs* are now only £2.40 to £3.20.

*Panic* Prosecco Shortage Could Happen This Summer

by Nada in Misc on 23 May, 2015 at 9:45 pm

 *Panic* Prosecco Shortage Could Happen This Summer

Hands up if you have started to enjoy a glass of Prosecco on a Saturday night? Kids go to bed, and it's just you and your other half, the bubbles go to your head, it feels great and the best part is it cost you under a tenner! Dubbed as the "thrifty person's Champagne" sales of the Italian Sparkling Wine have rocketed in recent years as most people's purse strings tighten. Now our little Prosecco Parade has literally been rained on.

Due to record breaking rainfall in both Conegliano and Valdobbiadene regions of northern Italy, production is thought to be reduced by a whopping 15%. Excuse me while I nip down to Asda to clear the shelves. Call me sceptical but rather than seeing bare shelves where this Italian Fizz would sit, I think it's more likely that we will see the price go up by £££'s. I am not the only one either with some other online sceptics predicting a price increase of up to 50%.

Farmers have apparently recorded worst grape harvest in fifty years, so I guess it that would seriously harm the harvesting of the fruit. I do feel for the farmers and hope it doesn't affect their livelihood too much. 

One of my favourite drinks is Prosecco and Violet Liqueur, and it's my end of week treat. I will let you know come August if I have had to resort to Lambrini.

Do you like a cheeky glass of Prosecco? Let us know if you have trouble finding it where you are or if you notice a steep incline in price. You can keep an eye on the prices here at Tesco*.

Cath Kidston Beach Huts!

by Lisa Hayes in Misc on 23 May, 2015 at 8:58 pm

 Cath Kidston Beach Huts!

This isn't a new product for sale by Cath Kidston*, but it probably should be! If you pop down to Bournemouth Beach you will find that 5 of the iconic beach huts have been decorated in Cath Kidston prints as part of the #randomactsofkidston campaign.

Personally I think it's a massive improvement, and according to the local paper, the Bournemouth Evening Echo, you can even hire out two of them for yourself from next week!

This is what the Marketing Director of Cath Kidston had to say about the beach huts' makeover:

As a brand that is dedicated to brightening up peoples' day with our colourful prints, we are always looking at fun ways to bring that cheerfulness to life in a new and exciting way.

The beach huts in Bournemouth are synonymous with the British summertime, providing an iconic landscape on our beaches and we were incredibly excited to be able to work with Bournemouth Council to brighten up these traditional huts this summertime, with five of Cath Kidston's key summer prints.

If you can get down to Bournemouth Beach to have a look at them then you really should, if not for the CK beach huts then just because it's a wonderful part of the country. I may be biased though, as I grew up right nearby...

Three of the huts are already let on a yearly basis, but if you are interested in hiring the other two you can contact the Bournemouth Seafront Office on 01202 451781. I have a feeling they may get a lot of enquiries!

If the newly decorated beach huts make you want to bring those prints into your home then Cath Kidston online* are offering £1 postage on all orders at the moment... although you might want to make the decorating a tiny bit more subtle than those huts. ;)

Thanks Becky :)

Kids Duvet Cover Sets now £3.99 @ Dunelm Mill

Kids Duvet Cover Sets now £3.99 @ Dunelm Mill

We have featured these kids duvet sets before when Dunelm Mill first reduced them, but now there are selected single duvet cover sets for an incredible £3.99 each!

There are three designs to choose from at this price - football, grafitti and birds. Stock levels are a little hit and miss as we would expect from a final clearance price like this, but it's worth having a quick check to see if there's any stock near you.

These duvet cover sets are a polyester cotton mix and are machine washable, and even if you have them as a spare set you can't really go wrong for £3.99 each can you?  If these designs don't take your fancy then there are lots more in the sale and many of those are less than £10.

If there is stock available in your local store for collection then it's free to reserve and pick up, or home delivery charges are from £2.99.

Peppa Pig T-Shirt was £4.99, now £2.49 @ Argos

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 23 May, 2015 at 6:25 pm

Peppa Pig T-Shirt was £4.99, now £2.49 @ Argos

Here's a quick little bargain for Peppa Pig fans out there. Argos have reduced the price of this cute pink Peppa t-shirt down from £4.99 to £2.49.

It comes in sizes from 18 months up to 5 years, is 100% cotton and machine washable. For some reason the Argos website says that the reduction is 1/3 off, but I think we have all sussed that it's actually half price.

The link above takes you to the smallest size, the 18 to 24 months, and you can select the size you need from the drop down box to be redirected to the correct item number.

If you have a Peppa fan then there are a few other clothing bargains at Argos at the moment, including Pyjamas for £3.99, and a pack of 2 Nightdresses for £6.49.

As always reserve an collect is free, and home delivery charges are from £3.95.

Hello Kitty Junior Bedding Bundles (Duvet, Pillow & Covers) £9.99 @ Home Bargains

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 23 May, 2015 at 5:31 pm

Hello Kitty Junior Bedding Bundles (Duvet, Pillow & Covers) £9.99 @ Home Bargains

If your kids are going to be in a Toddler Bed any time soon then this is a great bargain on a starter bedding bundle, and it's definitely worth grabbing at this price even if they don't need it just yet. You can get a 3.5 tog duvet, a pillow and a duvet cover set all for £9.99 at Home Bargains. This is about half the price you would expect to find a bedding bundle selling for, and this is what the covers alone would normally cost!

I'm really hoping they get some other designs in, as at the moment online it is only Hello Kitty - but there are two different cover styles to choose from if the little cat is a favourite in your home.

This is brand new to the Home Bargains website, so they should be coming into stores any time now as well, though I didn't see them in my local branch yesterday when I was looking at the bedding so if you want them it might be best to order.

If you order online there will be a delivery charge of around £3.49, although the charges are calculated on an individual basis at checkout and depend on the size of the order and the destination. Even with the delivery charges added on this is still a substantial saving on other stores. I just hope the kids like Hello Kitty!

EVERYTHING £3, £5 or £10 This Weekend Online Only @ Claire's Accessories

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 23 May, 2015 at 3:29 pm

EVERYTHING £3, £5 or £10 This Weekend Online Only @ Claire's Accessories

Everyone loves Claire's for their fab prices on thousands of accessories, and this weekend they have one of their BIG special offers. Everything on the their website is selling for £3, £5 or £10, so there are some great bargains to be had.

This includes make-up, jewellery, hair accessories, and loads of branded and kids items as well. What you can snap up depends on who you are buying for as there is such a huge selection - basically the whole site!

Some of the bigger items like hats, bags and so on have reductions of 50% as they were up to £20 before this event, so you can pick up some great items. I love the look of some of their bags, and the sun hats are just what you need if you were planning on flopping down on a beach any time soon.

There is so much to look at that it's hard to pick out highlights, but the brands are some of the best sellers again, including Frozen, Minions, Hello Kitty and more.

This is an online exclusive event that you won't find in stores, so you need to get ordering online for these prices. Click and collect from store costs £1.99 at Claires, but home delivery is £2.99 so it hardly seems worth the bother of going to town to collect for the sake of a pound.

This £3, £5, £10 event is on for the Bank Holiday Weekend only and finishes on Monday.

(EXPIRED) 50% Off Selected Frozen & Star Wars TODAY ONLY @ The Disney Store

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 23 May, 2015 at 2:48 pm

 (EXPIRED) 50% Off Selected Frozen & Star Wars TODAY ONLY @ The Disney Store

Now this is a brilliant offer from The Disney Store! For today only they have 50% off selected items - and they are Frozen and Star Wars! You have until midnight to night to snap these up, so you need to be quick with this one.

Some of the offers on the Classic Dolls, Figurine and Bath Toy sets from a couple of days ago are back again, but it's the half price Frozen and Star Wars toys that are the biggie.

The Star Wars half price items are pretty cool Die Cast Models of some of the best known ships, and are either £3.50 for the smaller vehicles like the Land Speeder, TIE Fighter and Speeder Bike, or £9 for the Millennium Falcon or Star Destroyer. If you know a fan then these are a pretty safe bet for a gift to pop away for birthdays.

The half price Frozen items are the Deluxe Anna Costume now £30, the Mix Em Up Olaf toy down to just £7.98, and the Olaf Figurine now £10.

There is still the matter of the £4.95 delivery charge that is still a bit steep, but you do get free delivery when you spend £50 or more. The offers finish at midnight so don't hang about!

Nintendo Wii U Console & Zelda Windwaker PLUS 4 Free Games PLUS £20 Gift Voucher: £179.99 instore @ Argos!

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 23 May, 2015 at 2:14 pm

Nintendo Wii U Console & Zelda Windwaker PLUS 4 Free Games PLUS £20 Gift Voucher: £179.99 instore @ Argos!

If you were keeping an eye out for a great deal on a Wii U then this is the one! Argos have an amazing deal right now because there are so many offers on at once that all apply to this console.

Buy the console for £179.99 and you get:

  • Wii U Console Zelda Windwaker Bundle: Black 32GB console, adapter, game pad, sensor bar, HDMI cable, downloadable copy of Zelda Windwaker.
  • 4 Free Games: Mario & Sonic Olympic Winter Games, FIFA 13, plus two others
  • £20 Argos Voucher when you buy selected Nintendo Consoles (including Wii U)

There is also a £10 Argos Voucher when you spend £100 offer on at the moment, and I doubt that the purchase will qualify for both voucher offers at the same time, but asking can't hurt I suppose!

The £20 Argos Vouchers with Nintendo Consoles offer is an in store only one, as you get issued the voucher at the time of purchase, so if you opt for home delivery you won't get those. I'd say it's definitely worth using the reserve and collect if you are getting £20 worth of vouchers back though, wouldn't you?

Many thanks to SteMcr85 @ HUKD
