While some of us might have planned a well-timed escape this May, many of us will be spending the bank holiday weekends at home and if the weather clears up, in the garden. Whether you’re doing your paperwork, fixing up the bike shed, or getting stuck into the weeding, CSSC has got plenty of offers and resources to help you make the most of your time off.
Each year the news is filled is stories of vehicular bank holiday madness, so now‘s the time to be making sure the tyres are at the right pressure, the bike-rack is in place and your insurance is up to date. We can help you take the sting out of car maintenance with My Savings+ offers at Halfords, Euro Car Parts and discounted motor insurance through CSIS.
Long weekends are the perfect time to spend on all those little jobs that need your attention like clearing the gutters, repainting the fence, installing some outdoor lighting or maybe some minor landscaping. Whatever the task, the longer May days and the double bank holiday provides the ideal opportunity to catch up on those niggling jobs or spend some serious time on the bigger projects. CSSC can come to the party when it comes to DIY weekends, with our range of My Savings+ discounts for big retailers like B&Q, Wickes and Wilko.
If your long weekend will consist of admin, planning the year ahead and reviewing personal finances, then don’t forget to price-check your electricity and gas. A lot of people know they can save money by switching don't switch because they think it’s a hassle. But it doesn’t need to be – CSSC members collectively saved over £69,000 so far in 2018 through Switch & Save, and you could save too. What’s more, one lucky member could win a year free energy!
For some, the bank holiday weekend is the perfect moment to plan a proper trip away. Grab some savings on your next holiday with Thomas Cook at My Savings+ and don’t forget to purchase travel insurance with CSIS – where CSSC members can get access to great deals.
If you haven’t already, get stuck into the garden this weekend to remove weeds before they become a bigger problem, and prune those trees and shrubs that haven’t yet exploded with spring shoots. Get the teak oil out for the outdoor furniture and plant some colourful annuals to fill in the bedding.
