A Millenial Saver’s next tip is to consider switching banks.
Some banks will offer you up to £200 for you to move you account there, and “it’s often easier than you think” to do, the influencer explains, because “your new bank will take care of any existing direct debits and update your providers”.
She adds that it’s always worth researching which banks offering the biggest reward at the time you’re switching, which you can easily do on websites like Money Saving Expert.
The prudent creator’s next recommendation is one for the music-lovers out there: Spotify is offering new users three months of Premium Individual for free until 12 September.
That’s a saving of 10.99 a month – or more than £30 in total.
Remember though, you’ll be automatically enrolled into a paid subscription unless you remember to cancel the trial, so don’t forget to set a remind if you want to dodge the payment.
Her final freebie shout out is for Heritage Open Days – a scheme that sees many historical sites and tourist attractions offer free entry for a 10 day period.
Between 8-17 September, there will be thousands of completely free events for you to enjoy, spanning everything from tours of the iconic Tyne tunnels to a chance to delve into the vaults at the British Film Institute's National Collection.
