Deal of the week

Every week the Moneywise team picks the best deal of the week. You can see our historical choices below.






  • Get £1,000 cashback on Halifax mortgages - Halifax has launched a £1,000 cashback offer to those taking out a qualifying mortgage. Buying a home is an expensive business, so cashback deals can assist with the cost of moving.





  • 15% off at Wickes this Easter - The long Easter weekend is a popular time to do DIY, and if that’s what you’ve got in mind, Wickes is offering 15% off everything in shops and online.









  • 20% off Family and Friends Railcard - Get discounted rail travel across Great Britain with a Family and Friends Railcard, with 20% off the cost of the card until Monday 20 February.


  • Valentine's Day deals special - Love may be in the air but it doesn’t need to cost you a fortune. Here’s our guide to the best Valentine’s Day related freebies.







  • Earn money from your free space - Whether you are taking out (if you’ve yet to deck the halls) or packing up the Christmas decorations after the festive season, take a look around your loft.






  • Fee-free investing for children - Even the most modest-sounding percentage based charge can have a hugely erosive effect on our wealth over time, so if you’re looking to invest for children you might want to consider ETFmatic, a robo-adviser that’s promising to waive all platform charges on its children's accounts. 





  • Get a mortgage in principle via Zoopla - If you’re looking to take your first step onto the property ladder, you’ll need a mortgage agreement in principle before sellers will take your offer seriously.


  • Get your credit score for free - Thanks to a new free service from Experian, everyone in the UK can now check their credit scores with the three main credit agencies without paying a penny.


  • Buy and sell unwanted gift cards using Zeek - Zeek is an app-based exchange where you can offload unwanted gift vouchers for retailers you don’t use, or boost your spending power by snapping up other people’s vouchers at a discount.


  • Billhub - a hassle-free household bill management tool - Every week Moneywise’s product researcher, Adam Williams, picks out his favourite deal. This week it’s Billhub – a hassle-free way to avoid squabbles about bills in shared accommodation at university and beyond.
