Netting a Bargain: Save on Odeon cinema tickets, Sky referral bonus, frugal fashion and free Google Music Unlimited

Jonathan Campbell rounds up the best deals on the web and the high street

Combine a 20 per cent Odeon gift card discount with 40 per cent off at the box office

- SEQUELS rarely top the original but cinema-goers will appreciate this twist in a movie money-saving tale I brought you last week. Tesco has 20 per cent off selected gift cards until March 11. Pick up a £25 New Look, Gap or Odeon card for £20, or a £20 Tastecard or Pizza Express card for £16. A decent saving - but the plot thickens. If you read last week's column you'll remember that Odeon has an existing offer running until March 10 - and you can stack it on top of this. Use the gift card to pay for a ticket at the cinema box office and you'll receive a voucher for 40 per cent off a screening on another day. You'll be given another voucher each time you pay for a ticket (even an already discounted one) and Odeon has confirmed that you can use gift cards as a payment method. Vouchers are valid until March 15. Some exclusions apply. The voucher must be redeemed at the box office, not online or at a ticket machine. Read the full terms and conditions at

- Google Play Music is offering new users four months of its unlimited service free (you'll automatically be billed £9.99 per month thereafter unless you cancel). Log in to on a desktop computer for your best chance of spotting the offer banner. No end date is listed.

- If you're a Sky customer and you introduce a friend to sign up (from £20 per month), both of you will get a £50 reward. Log on to using your Sky iD, enter your friend's name and email, and once they sign up you'll both receive a £50 prepaid Mastercard within 45 days.
