Although the population of Greater Manchester is being asked to be more vigilant with meeting up and travel, there are still many ways to save with UniDiscounts, while keeping safe.

Our friends at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre are taking part in the National Lottery’s open week from 5th – 13th June. As part of this, they’re offering a free hot drink in the planet café to anyone with a valid lottery ticket.

Zouk continues to offer 10% discount. All tables must be booked in advance. They are only accepting online bookings, this will enable them to manage the number of guests in the restaurant and also assist with contact tracing should it be necessary. Guests can select an indoor table in the restaurant or an outside table in our shisha lounge when booking online. Table slots are for 1.5hours. For booking details please read the T&Cs.

You can save 15% with the latest voucher for the Hotpoint Privilege Purchase Club.  This is a members only scheme, offering exclusive pricing on over 850 different appliances including three great brands to choose from, Whirlpool, Hotpoint & Indesit. 

Save up to 15% on last-minute breaks with Cottagestayuk.com. They have over 21,000 holiday cottages, villa holidays and other amazing accommodation options available.

There are lots of new deals for Reward Mobile.

Don't forget to save money on your tickets by logging in to The Cinema Society. Already being described as the surprise feel-good movie of the year Dream Horse tells the true story of how Jan Vokes (a Welsh cleaner and bartender) follows her dream to rear and train a racehorse.
