senior discounts 

There is a range of fitness and productivity related discounts coming out this week: ideal for the silver surfer who’s decided to use January to get fit, develop a hobby or put a home business together. From first steps to next steps, if you’re a January go-getter you’ll be able to do more for less.

Bloomer Digital is having a 25% off sale on all brochure websites. A brochure website is a basic site designed to showcase your company, usually the first step in getting a web presence out there for what you do. The discount is not immediately obvious when you look at the site, so it may be better to email directly:

Mu Media is also offering discounts on web design – this time with no restrictions on the type of site you get for your money. Mu has announced a 10% discount from all web design. Prospective customers simply need to contact the sales team and quote the discount code MuSD10.

Nike, Inc is having a winter sale, and is in addition offering free delivery on internet orders made to the value of £55 or more. Sports Direct is also delivering discount on exercise equipment, with kit from various manufacturers dropped in price by as much as 90% thanks to a January “Mega Deal” sale.

Orange (or EE) and participating cinemas are keen to remind customers of their Orange Wednesday offer, whereby an Orange or EE contract/pay as you go customer may get two cinema tickets for the price of one. In order to qualify for the offer you simply have to know someone who uses an Orange/EE phone, and make sure your local cinema supports the promotion (most do). You can’t buy an Orange Wednesday ticket in advance though – promotional tickets are sold from the start of the film’s scheduled programme time. Remember that the programme time normally includes half an hour of adverts before the film begins.

If your New Year’s resolution was to get out and about more, then the Senior Railcard could be the way forward – quite literally! The Railcard offers holder discounts for all rail travel, and may also be used to purchase two for one rail tickets for specific destinations. Also, if you buy a three year Railcard rather than a one year version, you’ll save £19 off the cost of buying three separate ones.

Applying for a Senior Railcard is easy. As long as you are 60 years old or older, you’re eligible – all you need is a passport number or UK driving licence to prove your age.

Most of the major travel companies are still offering January discounts too. As ever, be prepared to shop around for a while when you book flights. Popular destinations are still undersubscribed, so investing a couple of hours research could bring you a healthy return in savings.
