We know it’s only September, but Christmas will be upon us in no time and the sooner you organise your finances the better. As much as we love mince pies and Michael Bublé on repeat, Christmas is the most stressful and expensive time of year for families. It was revealed by the Bank of England that households in the UK spend over £2,000 each month but around December, they spend an extra £500.

This doesn’t come as a surprise given the increased amount of time spent going out, eating food and drinking alcohol. Then there is also the money we spend on buying gifts for our friends and family. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. PIWoP, low price shopping experts, reveals three ways you can save money just in time for Christmas.

Use Loyalty Cards

We use our loyalty cards all year round but are quick to forget them when Christmas comes around. Whether it’s a Boots Advantage card or a Tesco Club card, make sure to save up your points all year. That way, you will have a decent amount to spend when you begin your Christmas shopping.

Voucher Codes

Christmas is the time of year for endless socialising with family and friends. Unfortunately, that also means continuously reaching for your purse until it's practically empty. By planning ahead, you’ll be able to score a few voucher codes to help save you money on dinner and gift items to ensure you are well prepared for the upcoming festivities.

Start Shopping Now

It might seem early to start shopping for gifts in September but making those all-important purchases between now and the actual Christmas shopping season will ensure you keep on top of your finances. When it comes to finding a price you want to pay, why not try a price tracking app like PIWoP?

By using a price drop alert service, you will be able to track the price of the item you want. Once it reaches a price you want to pay, you will then receive an alert from us to purchase your item from the retailer.

At PIWoP, we provide an expert price tracking tool to ensure you always pay the price you want. From electronics and makeup to clothes and toys, our price drop alert tool will help you save money just in time for Christmas.
