Huge Valentine's savings at Amazon.co.uk [Feb. 12th, 2010|06:22 pm]

In recent years, contrary to the customary price hike of yore, Valentine’s Day has been used as an excuse by retailers to competitively slash prices and run loss leaders in a bid to attract longer term custom. This year, it would appear, is no exception.

Take Amazon.co.uk for example. By the sheer quality and quantity of their discounts, the world’s largest online retailer has become a staple of this column in recent months and, thanks to huge savings on a purpose built page, Amazon’s Valentine’s Day sale is once again the best around. There is up to 60 per cent off Valentine’s themed fashion items, 66 per cent off gadgets, 50 per cent off jewellery and 40 per cent off more, ahem… intimate items. Visit: tinyurl.com/amazonvalentine for a full list.

Next up we have Thorntons, which has up to 50 per cent off chocolates in store and online. By far the best buy is the Bouquet and Continental selection, which includes a huge 780g box of continental chocolates and a stunning mixed bouquet of tulips for just £30 – down from the usual price of £60. Better still, Thorntons.co.uk offers free delivery on all purchases over £25. With a two day transport estimate however, it might be worth visiting a Thorntons store yourself, unless your loved one can hold on until Monday of course.

Free Moringa Body Set (worth £18.50) with Glamour magazine [Feb. 1st, 2010|02:03 pm]

Glamour magazine are currently enticing new subscribers with a five trial issues for £5 offer. That price alone may not be much to write home about, although the free gift of Body Shop Moringa Body Set certainly sweetens the deal. The body set usually retails at £18.50 and, as the trial Glamour subscription can be cancelled at any time, the best way to look at the deal is as a rather good Body Shop discount.

Hotel inspectors wanted [Jan. 28th, 2010|12:38 pm]

 This could be a nice gig - the cunning PRs ever-vigilant standards people at Marriott hotels are asking for members of the public to become secret hotel inspectors. 

The team will help make sure their designated hotels, which have recently undergone a
major refurbishment programme and now look better than ever, stay in top condition.

The inspectors must visit Marriott hotels (for free) and try everything - the food, the spas, the bars and so on - and report back to the professional inspectors (who are perhaps bored of such luxuries and want someone else to do it).

It doesn't sound too arduous, so if you fancy it, your only skill should be the ability to enjoy hotels, but you should email their entry to marriotthotelinspectors@nyloncommunications.com. Or they can apply in writing to: Marriott Hotel Inspectors, Nylon Communications, 19a Floral Street, London WC2E 9DS.

Applicants must be over 18, provide their full name and contact details and the deadline is 10th February 2009. The successful Inspectors will be selected by a panel of independent hotel experts and winners will be notified by 19th February.

Good luck, and if you get it, nick a towel for me.
