This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Yes, this is more expensive than an oil drainer pan, but you don't have to worry about spilling the oil in the pan (it drains into a hole in the side of the can.Then you can just seal the can and take it to the tip. This is the cheapest price I think. It appears to be an exact copy of the the carplan one but much cheaper. However, according to the reviews, the illustration shows the carplan model with a funnel, but there is no funnel with this model and its shape may be different. Some people have absolutely no problem with this model, others say the oil overflows the container.
I have had no problem with my can but that was purchased many years ago..
Used for years and years

The tricky bit is placing it under the fliter which is usually in the most inconvenient place possible. Find the filter game: Designer: I know let's put it high up behind the engine, so you can't get at it from above or below, haha. Designer 2: What about if we put it where you have to remove a wheel to get at it, haha.

Also leak? The screw top of the drain can? Never had that. Is there a washer inside?

Most modern cars the filter is ontop, but I know what you mean some cars are a nightmare. My Civic Type R has been the most awkward one I've came across, you literally need Stretch Armstrong arms
I treat myself to an oil extractor I do so many services for people it was a no brainer. You put the tubing down the dip stick, pump it up and suck all the oil out, been an absolute godsend since I've bought it

You also usually risk burning yourself on the manifold as you've heated up the car.
The other trick is for it to be hidden above a sump guard.
Wow. an oil extractor! Some treat!

Euro Car Parts.

Poor threads on cap and funnel cause leak.

Having read a lot of reviews it seems this isn't the same as the carplan model. It doesn't contain the funnel. Apparently the illustration is the carplan model, but that isn't what is supplied. There is no mention AFAICT of leaks from tthe cap. There are some very positive reviews, but others complain of the oil overflowing the container for one reason or other.
Whether these are just numpties is impossible to say.

I recently discovered used engine oil makes a good creosote substitute.
