Think You’re A Bargain Hunter? This Will Put You To The Test

Everybody loves a good bargain, but how good are we at actually spotting them?

A new graphic puzzle has been released by MyVoucherCodes.co.uk with the aim of cutting the wheat from the chaff when it comes to bargain hunting.

The puzzle puts Britain’s thriftiness to the test, mixing up devious deals to see how long it takes to spot the discount that will net you the biggest saving.

A recent study of 2,000 adults found that eight in ten regularly go bargain-hunting, with the average Brit saving £106 a year by taking advantage of special offers and voucher deals.

A spokesperson for MyVoucherCodes.co.uk, said: “Many of us crave the buzz of uncovering a steal when shopping, but when there are so many different deals and offers out there it can be tough to figure out where the best bargains are buried.

“Hopefully this puzzle will help to attune your senses to the savings waiting out there and help you to avoid unnecessary spending.”
