6 Top Tips on how to Save Money during Covid-19 and Beyond!

  1. Shop around Online to get the Best price!

There are countless, accessible websites online that can be found easily with a simple google search, specifically designed to save you money! These websites track and compare prices in thousands of different shops, and provide you with helpful and insightful reviews to inform your decision.

So you can find the cheapest, most cost effective prices with just a few clicks of a button!

The writer of the useful ‘Be Clever With Your Cash’ blog reveals that “Shopping around for the best price is really easy when you’re doing it online!”

Another nifty way to save money on your online shopping is by joining Honey. Honey is a free browser extension that will scan the internet for relevant discount vouchers, and will apply them to your cart, saving you money instantly! “Never search for voucher codes again. With one click, Honey’s smart shopping assistant will automatically apply every discount to your cart – in seconds.”

  1. Chase up Refunds for Services or Items You can’t use currently.

Cancel or pause your gym membership as well as your subscriptions to restaurant, clubs and any other service that you cannot access presently. As well as this, if you did not use the service before you cancel, give the company a call and get a refund. Don’t waste you money on a service you aren’t using!

Iona Bain, founder of the Young Money blog reassures people that “Consumers who can no longer use products or services due to the lockdown are fully entitled to cash refunds – no ifs, no buts.”

You can also return items that you bought something online during lockdown but when it arrived it is different from described, it does not fit, or is faulty.

Do not hang onto items that you will not use and therefore you will not get your money’s worth, send the item back for a refund!

You can sell your items easily on Depop, eBay and even Instagram and Facebook!

Save money tip, claim your benefits!

Employee benefits could help your family.

  1. Claim any Benefits that You are Entitled to.

You could be entitled to financial support from the government, but its down to you to research, chase it up and claim the money you need.

Benefits are available for a variety of different personal extenuating circumstances such as: statutory sick pay, employment and support allowance, jobseekers’ allowance, and universal credit.

The support is out there, you just have to look for it and ask for help if you need it!

The following organisations can give you relevant information, guide you and set you off on your path to financial support:

  • Turn2Us is a national charity that offers benefits information, grants and support.
  • Citizens Advice help with benefits, consumer issues and other work and financial matters.
  • Credit unions are locally based, regulated loan and savings membership organisations.
  1. Re-evaluate Your ‘Rainy Day’ Savings.

The current crisis definitely counts as the rainy day you’ve been saving for.

Now is a great time to look into your savings account, check to see if the bank or building society you’re with will give you the best return and interest rates.

After this crisis has passed remember to keep saving. Put aside even just a little bit of money each month and it can make a huge difference when you need it!

If you do not have savings, now is the best time to start scrimping and saving just in case another financial crisis arises in the future!

Ms Bowes from comparison service Savings Champion says that “this situation illustrates the need for everyone to try and put away something.”
