I became aware of the Money Saving Expert (MSE) website around 2 years ago when I was looking at a PPI claim and I was looking at how to take the matter further. Since then I am now a regular user of the site and a massive fan. History MSE began in 2003 by Martin Lewis who was a financial journalist. Its slogan is "Cutting your costs and fighting your corner" and Martin Lewis has became to be a minor TV personality appearing on TV shows giving viewers helpful hints and tips for saving money. The popularity and general awareness of the site has been increased by the council tax banding which has saved home owners and tenants £1000s and the ... Read the complete review

I found this site a couple of years ago after regularly seeing Martin Lewis on GMTV and being impressed by his money saving tips. Its one of my favourite sites to browse when I have spare time and in particular I spend a lot of time on the forums. Indeed, it was on one of these that I discovered Dooyoo and I got loads of great tips on how this site works, which encouraged me to join. It has also pointed me towards a number of other useful websites which I would never have discovered. It has a weekly email showing the best deals and these are great if you are looking for a bargain - last week it alerted me to a sale of Dyson hoovers at Aldi. I hotfooted it to the ...

Martin Lewis made a fortune from this site when he sold it. He's a clever man!The site owners get a cut from any starred links that users click on. The site says categorically that they don't promote the starred links, but if you get the weekly newsletter just look at how often they are advising you to switch energy providers and banks. This is their big earner and so this is headlined. There's good stuff on it but I would advise just a wee pinch of salt.

In the last few months I have discovered this website alongside the rest of the planet it seems. It provides excellent advise on how to improve your finances, either by getting the cheapest quotes for things like car insurance, getting tax back, getting a second income or just household tips like using vinegar instead of expensive cleaning products. The best parts of this site for me are two things. Firstly the weekly emails are amazing, they provide codes on discounts for sites I use a lot like the Body Shop, and they also have handy guides on when to switch your gas and electric and who to. Which has the best cashback deal and are there any hidden clauses. ... Read the complete review

I will start by pointing out that I don't consider myself to be the average member of Money Saving Expert. I don't have a mortgage or any debt, I don't have any utility bills to pay and I don't do the food shopping for my househhold either. Despite all of this, I still find the Money Saving Expert website to be very relevant to my life and I find that it encourages good spending habits and inventive thinking. When I check my emails on Wednesdays, I know I'm in for a treat. I'm aware that this sounds cheesy but Martin has began to feel to me like a family member who is full of useful tips on how to make my money go further. I'm especially enjoyed the Money ...
