MoneySavingExpert

moneysavingexpert.com

MoneySavingExpert's Martin Lewis has demigod status in the UK. His website, which shares tips for saving money, from claiming back unfair bank charges to scouting out the best deals on the web, helps hundreds of UK consumers get revenge on money-grabbing businesses.

Rather than offering advice on all things financial, VoucherCodes lists printable vouchers for UK high-street stores that range from money off in-store to free delivery. The website also issues a free weekly newsletter with the best vouchers.
