There’s a great bunch of money-saving deals and discounts for you to grab this week, including free nappies and bargain booze. But remember, a bargain is only a good deal if you were planning to splash out on it anyway.
A bottle of wine for just £2.99?
This weekend, Lidl is cutting the price of its Cimarosa Sauvignon Blanc Semillon from £4.39. The deal on the “easy-drinking” booze is available in branches on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 October, with customers limited to snaffling six bottles of the white wine each.
Free coconut water and t-shirt
Detach will send you a free bottle of its coconut water along with a branded t-shirt if you fill in your details (including t-shirt size) here.
Financial help for struggling students
GrantFairy is a new mobile app that gives high school and university students access to more than 4,000 bursaries, grants and scholarships offered by companies, charities and universities. It’s been created by 21-year-old Myles Jardine who says he hopes it will “give students the opportunity to apply for funding so they can enjoy their university experience without the prospect of crippling debt weighing heavily on their mind.” You can download the app here.
Parents, you can get a free sample of Pampers Procare nappies courtesy of Boots at the moment. Simply fill in your details here.

Tip of the week
If you see what seems to be a bargain online, check that the company is legitimate. Members of the HotUKDeals website recommend using sites such as Endole.co.uk, Scam Adviser and VAT search to check if a company is legitimate and safe to buy from. They should show whether a company is registered to a credible address and how long it has been operating. If it seems new, it may have been trading under a different name, which had a bad reputation.
