    Never got a discount but I now abandon Amazon baskets where they can't go to a drop off point and last night walked away from a Tesco basket because near the end I was informed it wasn't click & collect

    I'm no longer prepared to sit in for deliveries and would rather pay a little more and collect in person
    If you can't take responsibility for it, you'll always be a victim.

    I went to book parking at Manchester airport last night using your links to get a discount. Sky Parks were slightly cheaper than Holiday Extras but when I went to book they charged an admin fee which made HE cheaper so booked with them instead. When I looked at my email inbox Sky Parks had sent me a 5% discount code last night to complete the booking, this morning they sent me a 10% one. Unfortunately I've already booked it with HE!!

    I visited the Book Depository website, which I haven't done in a while and then a couple of days later I got a 10% discount code.

    About 2 years ago, I managed to get a 15% discount email on a Stenaline ferry to The Netherlands after abandoning the purchase.
  • Booking airport parking through the Gatwick Airport site, if you start to abandon the booking by going back you will quite often be prompted by a 'don't go' message offering you an immediate 10% discount if you book there and then. Only seems to work for Gatwick's own on-airport parks. There are better deals out there at off-site locations though.
  • Virgin wines. Without fail, I add a load of wines to by basket and leave without buying. A week later, I get a mail for £10 off 12 bottles.
  • Eurocarparts do this, usually an extra 5% off parts.
