The team has been working flat out to bring you the latest deals, guides and tips 'n' tricks. We've picked out a few highlights:

    One MoneySaver cut his cover from £650 to £250
     
  2. In debt crisis? You can now get 2 months' 'breathing space'
    New rules have arrived in England & Wales
     
  3. How to get cheap broadband by taking advantage of short-lived deals
    There's a new scheme if you're on certain benefits but most can get similar prices
     
  4. Our success of the week is the MoneySaver who reclaimed £5,600
    It took 20 minutes to reclaim packaged bank account fees
     
  5. We've got a compendium of Amazon tips
    Our list of 30+ buying tricks has been updated

    Eighth Anniversary First Post Combo Breaker
    BT's £15/mth for 36 Mb fibre broadband announcement has stoked me up again.  We don't have all the details yet but, right now the best speed offered to my village in the East Midlands is 1 to 3 Mb (no fibre), so, although I would qualify for the BT deal, the infrastructure can't deliver those speeds.  To get a workable connection, my only option is through Gigaclear who deliver 40 Mb speeds at £41/mth, plus £14 for a Vonage phone connection (essential because mobile coverage here is unreliable).  The Gigaclear service is very good but there is a lack of competition, so no pressure on price.  I'm already paying over the general level and when the BT deal hits the road it seems I'll be about £40 out of pocket.  Very, very frustrating.
