I apologise if this ends up in the wrong place, this is my first post. This is not a deal as such, although there is Chocolate. In the spirit of getting a deal and giving something back Santander are swapping new/nearly new toys for chocolate coins. Perhaps when you find that great deal due to the help of the people on this site you might consider buying 1 extra and donating it to a child in need. Merry Christmas

Thanks for posting, I dropped some toys/gifts off for our local gift tree last week, found a few other things in the loft (Santa's secret storage bay) and was wondering where I could donate them as the cut off date for our gift tree closed last week.

chocolate coins? why not offer children real money and persuade them to open a savings account whilst at the bank?

that's really good, got to nip in to santander Friday. I may drop some bits off

Sounds like a poor investment from a bank. You could stuff those toys in your attic and find them to be worth a fortune in 30 or so years. Better still, sell or re-gift the new ones. Cold!

It's about helping others, not saving/making money!

Yeah, then why doesn't Santander donate some of their billions? Thought not!

Danny Shine sums up the banks quite well

For Santander, it is indirectly about making money. You would be better off giving your toys to a charity shop than propping up a banks PR machine. At the charity shop you can swap your toys for a warm fuzzy feeling

Bit like Comic Relief etc when they "donate" money they raised in branch by having collection tins out, don't donate a penny but makes or looks like they do. Banker banker rhymes with wan...... don't matter.

For anyone who can't get to a Santander branch, I noticed that Yorkshire linen are also accepting unwrapped gifts for children 0-18.
