    Free MoneySavingExpert Car Sticker! 12th Jul 05 at 6:04 PM
    Update 3 November 2006:
    New car stickers now available! Grab 'em here












    18 May Important Update:

    We've run out of car stickers for the moment but new ones are being reprinted. Can you hold off sending SAEs for the moment?


    There will be an announcement in the weekly email when more are available. Any SAEs that we've received will be kept until we get the new batch (though it'd be helpful if you didn't send)

    FREE MONEYSAVINGEXPERT CAR STICKER

    'screw the banks before they screw you!

    I thought I'd have some printed for a bit of fun. Of course it's all for free (though I am asking you to send a stamped addressed envelope to reduce the cost) on a first come first served basis (i will update this post on how many have gone).

    I thought the idea would be fun. I also thought that it would be nice advertising for the site and MoneySaving. So please only apply if you are actually going to put the sticker on your car - otherwise it doesn't justify the expense for me.

    Send a stamped addressed A4 envelope to:

    Car Sticker
    MoneySavingExpert.com
    F3, Shepherds Studios
    Rockley Road
    Shepherds Bush
    London W14 0DA

    (only one sticker will be sent)

    Hope you like them

    Martin

    The sticker itself is below (though it's about double the size - nearly A4 in length)



    Update: More Notes on What to do


    Some people have asked 'can't we just send cash and you post it'. The problem with this is the vast number of hours it'd take to address every envelope, this way we just stuff the sticker in the envelope, simple as that.

    All we need is an A4 normal envelope (not a padded one or anything) this can be SAE'd and folded insidea normal envelope and posted here.


    In answer to the question I keep being asked

    "yes there are still stickers left"
    When they're run out this will be closed, so if it's here, there are stickers.

    Great idea! Our little red Vauxhall Agila (just like Postman Pat's) will also be suitably adorned - something for Jess to read too!

    I'll take one of those I think, we could have a thread for sticker spotting, just post each time you see the sticker displayed giving vehicle type not registration details obviously but vehicle type and colour location and time etc. I often wonder if I am in the midst of a bevvy of mser's when I'm out picking up a bargain.

    I always knew that boots offer of 5% discount for first class stamps months ago would come in handy! I bought at least a years supply. lol

    thank you Martin!

    Can't wait to play the 'spot the car sticker game', a new addiction perhaps, at least a new thread somewhere!!

    Great advertising too!

    I'll be sending my SAE tomorrow for the car sticker. I'll put it on my brother's car as I don't drive yet. Wonder if the bank manager would like one...

    brillo thanks Martin, I'm always recommending the site, this'll be groovy.
    I ave a dodgy H, so sometimes I will sound dead common, on occasion dead stupid and rarely, pig ignorant. Sometimes I may be these things, but I will always blame it on my dodgy H.

    Sorry, I'm a bit of a grumble weed today, no offence intended ... well it might be, but I'll be sorry.

    My message would have been far ruder, personally I think this message is quite restrained enough, thanks very much
    Thanks to all who post constructively.
