Snoop cheering as a plant grows

No Time To Die (for free) and spectacular offers from Snoop

Hello, I hope you all had a great April, and enjoyed the rather balmy Easter weather. I was glad Snoop reminded me that the latest James Bond film, No Time To Die’, was streaming for free throughout the Easter weekend on Amazon Prime – I enjoyed watching it too. I also spent some time checking out the recently launched streaming service “Fifa+”, which features some nice content for a trip down memory lane – take a look if you're a football fan like me.

I treated myself to some great food over the course of the month, thanks to some spectacular offers Snoop made me aware of. How about a 5kg box of fruit & veg for £1.50 from Lidl, two pizzas and a four-pack of San Miguel beers for £5.50 from Co-op, or £10 off my first >£30+ Gorillas groceries order. (I paid with my Curve card and received another £10 one-off promotional cashback on top!)

I was also pleased to receive my £150 council tax rebate, bagged another £150 for switching my current account to First Direct, and opened a “Reward Savings Account” with Moneybox which pays a competitive 1.20% interest. Thanks for the heads up Snoop – such a welcome respite in the wake of the rising cost of living.

Looking at the bright side of life, and thanks to a recent IHG Hotels & Resorts promotion, I booked two rooms for the price of one for the Early May Bank Holiday - great value for money. Also, just in case you are thinking of going away this summer and need to fill in a passport application - make sure you apply for a new or replacement passport online via the website instead of by post. It costs £9.50 less!

Finally, did you know there is an app that pays you when you move by planting trees? You must walk more than 5,000 steps a day, for at least 5 days a week, and Treekly will plant one tree each week in recognition of your efforts. On that note, have a great May and I’ll be back next month
