Save supermarket stamps
Supermarket savings schemes encourage year-long saving for Christmas. They work, in the main, by allowing consumers to either buy stamps each week or load credit onto a store card.
A loophole allows you to get the year’s bonus in just one day. Most supermarkets pay out the bonus based on how much you’ve saved by a specific day or month, so dunk the cash in just before and they’ll add up to 4% on top.
