Money saving tips for new parents from hotukdeals

Following the exciting Royal baby news announced yesterday, hotukdeals, the UK’s biggest deal-sharing community with over 1.8 million members, has put together a guide on how new and expectant parents can save money during what can be an expensive time when you’re not in line to the throne.


Boots parenting club: Expectant parents can sign up to the Boots parenting club, which is available for advantage card members. The scheme offers members 10 advantage card points for every £1 spent on baby products until the baby reaches the age of three. Boots also send tailored offers during each stage of pregnancy and baby age to help along the way such as free gifts, money off clothing and expectant mum products.


Emma’s Diary: Emma’s Diary is one of the UK's leading baby clubs for mums-to-be. By signing up you can get access to £250 worth of Argos money off vouchers, gift packs and vouchers tailored to each stage of your pregnancy and a photo book offer.


Mothercare club: Joining the Mothercare club gives you access to discounts such as 20% off maternity clothing; exclusive member-only early access to sales and over £100 worth of vouchers.


Free prescriptions and NHS dental treatment: Expectant mothers are entitled to free prescriptions and NHS dental treatment from when a pregnancy is confirmed until the baby is one. Ask your midwife for the relevant forms.


Nappies: As parents, you will go through mountains of nappies, whether reusable or disposable. Whichever method you decide on you can get free samples of Aldi nappies, as well as baby wipes, to try via Netmums, which can help towards those never-ending costs.


Baby & Toddler Events: Many of the big UK retailers run baby and toddler events throughout the year with huge savings on everyday essentials such as baby wipes and nappies plus more significant purchases like cots, car seats, pushchairs and more. Members at hotukdeals have put together a shopping guide, with dates and best buys for 2019.
