3 Dead Cert Tips

Loss Leaders
Before you buy anything in a supermarket always know where the economy range (e.g. the 'Value' range in Tescos) is, especially for commodity items. They're often found on the bottom shelves, so you have to look. We found 500ml shower gel for 10p. Used as loss leaders by the big chains to entice people into the store, these can often be a fraction of the price of the brand names.

PAYG (Pay as you Go) can be cheaper
Ok, per minute & per text PAYG is more expensive BUT as always, its overall cost that counts. Remember there is no monthly tariff for PAYG users. If you're a low useage customer OR can use your company phone or someone elses phone and keep useage on your own phone to a minimum then your costs can become extremely low indeed as a PAYG customer. The other often forgotten but very important benefit of PAYG is that there is no risk of having to pay to get out of a contract. The mobile really will hold you to a long term contract if you signed up to it. Also another benefit is there is no chance of you running up a huge bill on your phone as your service will simply stop as you reach the end of your credit. PAYG is GOOD.

Cut your motor costs: tyres
If your car tyres are 10% under inflated this will give you 2.5% lower fuel economy and 15% increase in tyre wear. When buying tyres you can get get big discounts if you replace more than one. Also shop around and get a price in advance, otherwise you will get priced at what the tyre fitter feels like when you turn up.
