Austerity seems to be with us to stay, and with the coalition government now several years behind on its schedule for reducing the budget deficit, it looks like we may be tightening our belts for years to come yet. Fortunately for the average person, there are absolutely loads of ways of saving money which require a little bit of work, but are well worth the effort.
Most of these revolve around getting the best deal for products that you absolutely have to get like insurance, and bank accounts. Many financial institutions, like Santander, try to attract great offers in bundles so that customers change over all their financial products. A common example is having access to a better bank account if you already have a mortgage with one particular bank.
