Every so often I’ve written a post that is just vouchers and deals, and the response has been fantastic. So here is another opus that covers all the vouchers, discount codes and freebies that I can find and that will save you a ton of cash on your baby essentials.
Having a baby can be quite expensive, certainly all the amounts thrown about in the news are enough to make you blanche. Add to that the recession, the government cuts, changes to taxes, and the increase in vat, and you’ve got some tough times ahead.
Here are some of the best discounts and deals I could find on the web. Hopefully some of these will get you some great savings on items that you need for you and your baby.
Kiddicare – Currently running a sale until 14 February, Kiddicare have some awesome items on sale. They’ve also frozen their VAT so you won’t be hit by that increase either, for now. You will find deals like 50% off prams and baby accessories, 45% off travel equipment (car seats) and huge discounts on cotbeds and cots.
ASDA’s Baby and Toddler Event is currently running and has a ton of discounts on baby accessories and clothes. If you spend over £10 in the George baby clothing section then you are also eligible to use the code babyevent1 which will get you free delivery.
Argos now have an entire section dedicated to their latest discounts, special offers and voucher codes. If you check back regularly you can land free delivery voucher codes, discount codes and gift vouchers. At the moment they have the code FURNDISC running which saves you £20 when you spend £150 or more on furniture.
Babies R Us have special offers, freebies and codes running on a regular basis. Check back to this link regularly to see what they are currently offering. At the moment there are discounts across all departments, free accessories on pushchairs, and a buy one get one half price deal on blankets and sheets.
Boden are running a 60% off clearance sale right this very tasty minute. The sale includes menswear, mini Boden, Johnnieb, and womens wear. Well worth an eyeball for excellent bargains on clothes for next winter (don’t forget to size up for little ones).
Boots are running a voucher deal of 10% off on a £60 minimum spend. The code is JMNS66 and it expires on 28 February 2011. Grab yourself a bunch of items from their sale and then swipe a further 10% off if not otherwise specified in the terms and conditions.
Bump to 3 are having a sale with over 50% off at the moment and have also frozen the VAT increase. Plus, if you happen to buy a grobag, or any other gro products, you can get free delivery or 10% off, depending on which offer you choose to go with.
Characters, an extremely cool site dedicated to, well, characters from popular TV shows for kids, has a big fat juicy sale on right now too. You’ll uncover some fabulous discounts here including Postman Pat down to only £4.99, and the Toy Story Bop the Alien game for only £4.99.
JoJo Maman Bebe are quite costly in my book, but they do have a web page dedicated to special offers. In fact, they have weekly web offers that are regularly updated and have some ace discounts, a monthly store offer (at the moment you get an extra 10% off instore on sale items), and some partnership promotions. Check back here to see what they have on offer each week.
Joules are offering free delivery on a spend of £50 using the code EC591. They are also having a sale so you can probably get quite a lot of bang for your buck, and then have it all delivered nicely to your door for free. How tasty.
La Redoute are offering quite a few discount codes at the moment. If you’d like £15 off when you spend £30 or more then you need to be ordering for the first time and using the code 8004. You can get £15 off if you spend £50 or more with the order code 8285. And they are having a sale up to 70% off. Sounds like a good time to pop around and visit them I reckon.
So there you have it. A bunch of popular sites that offer fabulous discounts and vouchers to prospective parents. If your favourite store hasn’t appeared here, then why not search PlayPennies for other voucher codes that Lynley has uncovered? Or visit our Freebie section to see what you can get for absolutely nothing at all.
