1. Take advantage of reward schemes:I hold loyalty cards for retail spends in Tesco, Nectar, Boots, Applegreen and for coffee shops like Clements and Caffe Nero. Trainers like us find ourselves spending significant amounts of money on petrol and on coffee meetings so why wouldn’t you sign up to get something back from expenditure you will be making anyway. Signing up is generally free and your rewards can add up to something relatively significant. I personally turn my Tesco blue reward vouchers that arrive in the post quarterly into diamonds annually… honestly…it’s simple really – by logging online to Tesco Clubcard you click to turn your blue vouchers into three or four times the value towards Goldsmiths, hotel stays, meals out, cinema tickets and more. As far as my hotel stays go – I book via TopCashBackÂ (more about that in tip 3) to earn between 4% and 10% of my total cost back in cash – Â I also log in to my own profile on sites such as Hotels.com to use ‘Hotels.com Rewards’ in order to get one night free for every ten nights purchased (they take an average of your spend). Given the business I operate in and the amount of travel it entails – I have redeemed 5 free nights so far.
