whole host of other lifestyle-themed goodies.
Those sharing their pearls of wisdom on a regular basis will be rewarded with points,
allowing them to earn spot gifts as a thank you for their valuable contributions.
And to celebrate the official launch of the site, goodvalueformoney.com has teamed up
with leading holiday comparison site icelolly.com, to give away a luxury holiday to Spain
in the first of many exciting competitions! Visitors to the site following its launch on 5
September will be invited to enter this exclusive launch competition, with one lucky
winner being treated to the ultimate reward.
Helen Pickard explains: “For years Samantha and I have joined other mums in informally
sharing at the school gates and at our places of work details of the latest money-saving
schemes we have unearthed.
“And of course everyone loves a bargain, especially in the current climate.
“In launching goodvalueformoney.com, we are very excited about empowering others all
over the UK to join us, and witnessing the combined impact of us all working together to
