If you’re yet to start your Chrismtas shopping and have already begun stressing about how far your money will stretch, Martin Lewis’ hack for getting a £100 voucher to use in M&S could be a lifesaver. The money saving expert revealed in a recent newsletter that switching cards now could result in your having a voucher just in time for the Christmas sales - and we’re already planning what we’re going to buy.
Switching banks often comes with an incentive and M&S currently has one of the best around thanks to their voucher. The MoneySavingExpert website explains: “This is a perfect opportunity to grab it and likely get a better bank account, as four banks currently pay you to switch.”
