    You can save with either without needing an agent

    Personal choice depending what you want to order.

    Park gives you the option to finish payments in either September, October or November and you then get your order (if vouchers/giftcards) within a couple of weeks of the final payment clearing. As far as I am aware there is no minimum order.

    Variety needs a minimum order of 400 if you are ordering without an agent. They seem to have an end date of November only so you will receive your orders later

    Take a look at both websites and decide which offer what you want.

    Remember if you choose Love2shop to look at where they can be spent as there are different retailers for the gift cards than the ones who take the vouchers.

    If you are close to an intu centre you can also join their saving scheme (this comes under gift clubs on their website)

    If you are very strict with yourself your best option is to set up a savings account and pay into it every month - it's there then when you want/need it and can spend it where you like
