:: A few weeks ago I told you how you can get Dyson products for less by buying directly from the company's customer care line. That still applies but there's another way to obtain a discount while getting rid of an old appliance. Argos is giving up to £130 off Dyson products when you trade in any vacuum cleaner of any brand, type or age. The minimum discount is £20, when you buy an appliance at the lower end of the price range, whereas the full £130 can be claimed on purchases of a DC50 multifloor model (bringing it down to £239.99 instead of the usual £369.99).

:: Want to lay your hands on a deluxe Easter egg without shelling out too much? Lidl has cracked it with Fudge Feast and Eton Mess varieties for just £2.99, available while stocks last. Find your nearest store at
