For those looking for a new savings account, heading to AA will give them the best deal from a high-profile name.

Martin said: “AA has pipped the Post Office as the new top easy-access savings account from a big name, paying 1.47 per cent AER -including fixed bonus of 1.27 per cent for 12 months and can be opened with a minimum of £100 over the phone or online.

“The Post Office pays 1.45 per cent AER – including 1.2 per cent fixed bonus – and can be opened online with £1.”

For those who are willing to take out an account with a new bank, market leader Marcus offers 1.5 per cent AER.

Martin said: “All have unlimited withdrawals, and the same £85k UK savings protection so you could just go for the highest rate, but I know many want a big name.

“As they all include a fixed bonus for one year, meaning rates will plummet after 12 months, look to switch to a higher rate at that point.”

If looking to save some money while shopping, Martin revealed how some viewers could get £5 off when they spent £20 at Amazon.

“If you are eligible, download and sign in to the free Amazon Music app for the first time by 11.59pm on Sunday 30 June, and you’ll be emailed a £5 code by Sunday 7 July.

“You can use the code until 25 July on orders of £20 or more that are sold and dispatched by Amazon and not third-parties.”

Some eBay shoppers will be able to save money on already discounted items.

Martin explained: “You can get 20 per cent extra off already-reduced items at 108 eBay outlets, when you spend £25+ and enter the code PURE20 until 11.59pm tonight.”
