    The Result!

    Wow what a month.  There's lots of extremely good posts on here.

    I have decided (as i'm allowed) To give four prizes of £25 this week rather than one of £50 (or a bottle of champagne, winners take your pic).  I think these tips are so good all deserve a prize.   Frankly there were other tips too that were corkers - but spreading it any more thinly would devalue the whole thing.

    The winners are

    1. Libra for the £15 Amazon vouchers thread.  
    2. Ella for the Clinque lipstick.  One of the most valuable freebies and many people have said "provided me with a glam treat which didn't cost too much".
    3.  Arb78 for the Sky thread - massive money saved and hugely popular
    4. Strike Eagle for computer help.  I was very tempted for this to be the overall winner.  It's simply a case where someone helped someone else they'd never met sort their computer out for free and spent an hour doing it.  There are lots of stories like that on the site and its worth rewarding as much as the wonderful big mass read MoneySavers.

    Would the winners please PM me and tell me which prize they prefer :)

    I managed to pick up a couple of top bargains thanks to this tip, saving ~£150 after a jolly good search around the essex PCWorlds. I have no idea where mrme got the info from but thanks for passing it on.

    your not alone there many of us did, I'm surprised at how little support it has here!
    Four guns yet only one trigger prepare for a volley.

    Together we can make a difference.

    This should be in September as it was posted so late in August that it rolled over to September. Which is why people are ignoring it for September. ??? ???

    I did not manage to get bargains mentioned here but have had others due to now looking closely at pricing etc. :D:D
    This has helped me save a lot of money albeit indirectly.

    mrme deserves the award. :-* :-*

    The length of the thread alone is testiment to that.

    Just my opinion.
    I am not always right,

    But I am never wrong !!
