    A young mum told yesterday how she beat the credit crunch when she furnished her new home for peanuts.

    Bank clerk Emily Shepperson, 23, managed to save hundreds of pounds on new furnishings by using online shopping site MyUKVoucherCodes.com.

    And when her baby daughter Alyssa turned one a few weeks ago Emily and her partner Kane held a party for 100 guests – all for £40 thanks to the website.

    Emily is one of a new breed of canny shoppers who are beating the credit crunch by downloaded voucher codes and accessing hundreds of secret bargains.

    MyUKVoucherCodes is full of discount offers from major High Street retailers such as Asda, HMV, Marks and Spencer, Pizza Hut, Comet, John Lewis, Dixons and Boots. Shoppers can also save money at online retailers such as Amazon and Play.com.

    The site is free to use and has proved invaluable for Emily and Kane from Benwick, Cambs.

    She said: “I live in a small village without many shops so MyUKVoucherCodes is the site I go straight to when I'm looking to buy something new. It's so easy to locate a code for the retailer I want to use.

    “We recently moved into our first home together as a family and we used the site to obtain bargains at major retailers. We bought new sofas from Tesco and a new fridge and washing machine – both from Littlewoods. Altogether we spent about a thousand pounds but it would have been hundreds more if we hadn’t of visited www.myukvouchercodes.com and obtained the discount codes.

    “And when our daughter Alyssa had her first birthday we were able to entertain 100 guests all for £40 because we used the site for everything from the food to the music.”

    Emily, who works as a cashier for Barclays bank, and warehouse worker Kane, 20, are regular users of the site and reckon they save hundreds of pounds every month.

    She added: “We never buy anything without getting a discount code from the site first. It’s often ten or twenty per cent off, and it all adds up. Because we have a baby we are always buying nappies and wipes. By shopping online at Boots and getting the voucher codes from MyUKVoucherCodes first we save hundreds on our shopping each month.

    “We also get free delivery on everything so we save a fortune on petrol as well and it’s kinder to the environment too. I know I’ll be doing all my Christmas shopping online and saving hundreds. I don’t know why everyone isn’t doing it.”

    ENDS

    Nice story..I have to admit the thing that interests me the most is this...
    Not that I want to have a £40 party but I think there may be a giant list of people that would.
    It'd be great to know EXACTLY what she did do to feed 100 people at 40p/head.

    There's a story there somewhere... if it's true.
    (if they all had a packet of crisps each then I don't want to know :p)

    Regards
    James.

    Good stuff.

    But surely it can't cost that much to furnish a home for peanuts? They're only small. A home for coconuts, now I can see how that would cost a few quid.

    Only problem with these sites are you get 1000's of emails and have to complete surveys all the time to recieve the voucher codes. Don't believe she actually saved that much.

    Hmmm. Isn't that the test for "passing off"?

    In the afiliate marketing game i dont think there are many people bothered with "the rules"
    Mark however is a really nice young bloke who is doing disgustingly well and deserves it as his site is really very clever. Dont know the ...uk... version.

    True, but the PR person who posted this, also posted this.
