We’ve had a busy summer. We went to our first horse race at Ascot, visited Peppa Pig World and practised our magic skills at Warner Brother’s Harry Potter Studio tour, but of course you don’t always have to travel as far as Southampton or London.
Bristol is a great place to live and there is always something today. I think over the summer, there was a festival every weekend, sometimes even more. As going out as a family can be expensive, especially over the summer holidays when extras such as drinks and ice-creams add up, websites such as vouchercodes.co.uk can be a godsend.
When planning our days out, I often logged on to see, if there were any deals available for the activities that we had planned for the coming weeks and on a number of occasions, we could make some real savings or our friends for that matter. They live a little further a field and usually come to see us by car, but when I told them that you get a 2 for 1 voucher to Bristol Zoo, if you come by train (Great Western, if you were wondering), they quickly changed their mind.
We had a fabulous day looking at the seals and monkeys and watching the butterflies dance in the tropical butterfly enclosure. The kids and their dad’s admired the snakes and spiders, while the mummies enjoyed some sunshine on the big green in the heart of the zoo preparing our picnic. We usually just pop into the supermarket and get whatever we want, but as we were trying to see, if there are deals out there that help us get through the summer holidays without breaking the bank, we check the Food & Drink deals on vouchercodes.co.uk and discovered that Sainsbury’s offer you £15 off your very first order with them. As I am usually ordering from Tesco or popping into my local supermarket, we were eligible for the deal and saved quite a bit on our order. Result!
There are a lot of other offers on the website, so make sure to check it out before you plan days out, your shopping or even eating out. Searching for local offers was a little tricky: There is no filter for regions or big cities, so we had to through the list of deals, but I guess the savings really made it worth it.
