    Some good tips.
    I like MSE Lee's freebie tombola.

    Festive food might be a good use of Tesco vouchers this year, though, if they do double-up on the Finest range again in time for Christmas. Many people (rightly or wrongly) buy Finest for Christmas anyway, making 1 point really worth 2p. I'm not sure that many of the deals are really worth more than this.

    To go with the tip about hotels, I'd like to add that if you're planning to travel to visit people over the festive season by train, don't forget to register on the Trainline for an email notification of when the cheap tickets become available (normally 12 weeks before). However, as they have a 1 booking fee don't book with them and instead book direct with the relevant train company.
