Pull off some discounts

Clothing retailer Pull and Bear’s summer sale is currently running, with up to 60% off a range of items for men and women – like €20 off mens’ jeans, or €17 off a print flared skirt.

Batman bundle

We finally appear to be getting a good run of decent weather (touch wood), but if the sun isn’t your thing, pick up a 500GB PS4 Arkham Knight bundle for €349.99 at Argos. For reference, the same bundle is €449.99 in Gamestop and €399.99 in Smyths Toys.

Arkham Knight is the third in the acclaimed Arkham series from Rocksteady, and will see the eponymous hero square off against a formidable range of villains from the Batman universe. It also includes the all-new Batmobile, if you need more of an incentive.
