Ireland’s Guide To Money And Living

Bargain corner

Retro Dealz

Fancy a sugary blast from the past? Dealz has launched a new range of retro sweets, yours for €1.49 each, including Chocolate Cinder Toffee, toffee whirls and that staple of children’s parties from our own childhood – Black Jacks and Fruit Salad.

IKEA sale

Irish people seem to have quite the love affair with IKEA and its furniture – the number of people who walked through the doors of the Ballymun store last year reached 2.5m, with a spend of over €2m every week.
These numbers might get a little boost with IKEA’s upcoming sale, perfect for flatpack furniture enthusiasts or people looking to furnish their new homes. Running between June 12th and July 5th, you’ll get an extra 10% off their sales prices if you join the ‘IKEA Family’ for free.

Food and drink for two

Wagamama is a tasty Japanese restaurant chain with branches in Dundrum, Blanchardstown and Dublin city centre. LivingSocial has a great voucher on offer that can be redeemed in any of the three branches – a €40 voucher for food and drink, yours for €20. Just make sure you get out there by August 26th.

Get your screw fix

Fancy doing some DIY work now that the weather seems to be picking up (touch wood)? Screwfix are a relatively new entrant to the Irish DIY market and are offering €10 off once you spend €50 – just enter the code IESUMMERB at the online checkout, valid until July 5th.

If you sign up for their newsletter, you’ll get €5 off your next order (just not in combination with other codes) and, if you’re doing a lot of work, there’s free delivery on orders over €75. Happy hammering!
