Today we continue our round-up of fantastic coverage for our plastic bag research. If you didn't know already, we carried out a piece of research which found that £26.7million worth of carrier bags have been stolen since the 5p carrier bag charge has come in. Coverage came in last week for the story, including the Metro, Telegraph and the Daily Mail. It was also covered on the Independent, who are the focus of this week's press article.
Morning all! We've had some great coverage this week and simply couldn't decide on which piece to cover as this weeks press article! We recently did some research which found that £26m worth of carrier bags have been stolen since the 5p charge was introduced in England. The survey has got loads of brilliant coverage, including on the London Evening Standard, MSN, Telegraph and was even covered on the BBC Breakfast show! We've chosen the Metro piece of coverage, though, which went live on Wednesday and included a follow link to the VoucherCodesPro.co.uk site.
Happy New Year all! Our first press article of 2016 looks at some fantastic coverage we secured on Real Business. Over the New Year, we carried out research which found that women are breadwinners in over half of UK households. This research was covered by Fresh Business Thinking, the Daily Mirror and Daily Record. It was also covered by Real Business, who included a link to the VoucherCodesPro.co.uk website in the piece.
Morning! We're officially in Christmas week, so its time to get excited if you haven't already. Today's press article looks at a feature we secured in Talk Business this month, where Nick Swan, our founder and CEO, gave his top tips for new entrepreneurs to get coverage for their new businesses. Nick's tips got a two page spread in Talk Business, with tips including "A Simple stunt, such as sending a cake of your business' logo to journalists, can really grab their attention."
Today's new press article comes off the back of some great coverage secured in the Metro last week. We're regularly carrying out pieces of research in a bid to understand Britons. In particular, we are interested in their financial habbits and how this can affect the British economy. Our latest piece of reserach found that a majority of Britons graze whilst supermarket shopping. As a result, supermarkets are losing almost £3billion per year, with each 'grazer' stealing an average of £4 worth per week. This was covered in the Metro Manchester and Liverpool.
Some time ago, we commissioned some research which discovered the number of Britons who steal from supermarkets via self-service check-outs. It was a really successful piece of research for us as it highlighted a big problem in the UK. So, in line with that we carried out further pieces of research recently to see how many Britons 'grazed' whilst supermarket shopping. We defined grazing as eating any items before getting to the supermarket checkouts. We found that doing so costs supermarkets almost £3billion per year. This got some great coverage, including lots of regional coverage. It also got a great piece on the industry news site The Retail Bulletin.That piece is the focus of this week's press article. Enjoy!
So, on Friday it was a pretty big day in the year. It was Black Friday and if you didn't know that, where the heck have you been hiding? Black Friday was an American tradition that has become a big part of the British calendar. It's a single day in November where leading retailers introduce huge reductions in prices. Last year's Black Friday came under intense scrutiny with big riots and violence breaking out over the various deals. This year, Asda pulled out of Black Friday, citing this violence as the main reason. This has led to a number of people, including journalists, calling for Black Friday to be online only. This is an opinion that we hold and urged Britons to stick to online only. We sent out a reactive statement to this, announcing the spike in traffic on our site for Black Friday and urging people to shop online for the best deals. This was covered in the Sun and on the Daily Mail.
Morning folks! Today's Press Article is brought to you off the back of a brilliant reactive opportunity we spotted this week. Black Friday is approaching, so as usualy everyone is going a bit crazy trying to find the best deals (including us!). Asda, usually credited with bringing Black Friday to the UK, dropped a big bomshell earier in the week by revealing that they will not be taking part in Black Friday this year. Instead, Asda will be honouring the same amount of deals as they would offer during Black Friday over the whole Christmas period. We sent out a reactive statement to this from our founder and CEO Nick Swan, who said: “It came as a really big shock to everyone that Asda have decided to shun their Black Friday deals for the 2015 season, and only time will tell if there are any serious repercussions of such a drastic financial decision. Asda were one of the retailers that helped to introduce the event to the UK market in 2013, with their owner Walmart a big player in the US Black Friday sales, and have been one of the major players in the UK in offering fantastic deals on electronic goods in the lead-up to the festive season.” He continued: “Personally, I think it is a big mistake for Asda. Whilst I fully support the premise of maintained discounts throughout the Christmas period, not just one flash sale, the simple fact is that Black Friday is growing each year, with this year set to be the most profit-making yet. Asda will miss out on sales, as there is no doubt consumers looking to save money will go elsewhere in the search for the best deals on Black Friday.” This was covered by the Telegraph in their round-up of the news on Asda' Black Friday pull-out.
This week we have managed to secure some brilliant coverage. As you all know, we enjoy carrying out lots of pieces of research to gain a better understanding of our consumer and the way in which they operate. Research that we recently undertook looked at the attitude of Britons at work. Our research found that almost half of British workers are too scared to poo at work. George Charles, our spokesperson, said the following on the results of the study: “I am actually shocked by the results of this study. Parents really need to be more careful when holding private firework displays and understand the dangers that fireworks can hold. Young children are definitely not suited to handle fireworks and I think more needs to be done to spread this message.” He Continued: “It is fortunate that the vast majority of respondents that we surveyed did not see their children suffer any injuries or accidents as fireworks can be deadly to use. Parents, start taking more responsibility and protect your children from using dangerous fireworks.” The survey was covered on the Metro, Express and Business Matters.
We have recently conducted some research into the relationships of Britons. Our study found that women secretly wish their partner took better care of themselves, with 37% of women longing for their partners taking better care of themselves. This was covered on the likes of Female First and Reveal, the subject of today's coverage round-up. Speaking on the results of the study, George Charles said: "A simple personal hygiene regime really isn't hard to stick to, so I really would urge all men in the UK to try to take better care of themselves. "I do, however, think that it is important for women to make their partner aware of their concerns. "Most men will not know that they should be taking care of themselves, so if you love your partner then let him know he needs to up his hygiene game!"
Today's latest press article comes for a recent survey we conducted into the number of vegetarians that eat meat when they are drunk. We've gained some incredible pieces of coverage for this survey and this has continued this week with coverage in the lovely Waitrose Weekend. The Waitrose Weekend is a magazine providing essential guides to what to do, eat and drink every week! It is produced by supermarket giants Waitrose. Check it out below!
Morning all. Today's press article is focused on some brilliant coverage we have acheived this week. We saw the fantastic news earlier this week that John Legend and his beautiful wife Chrissy Teigen were expecting their first baby. The signer and model had reportedly been trying for years so it was great to see them finally announce their great news! Upon hearing the news, we decided to task our expert designers with the task of seeing how their new baby would look. Our designers got to work and produced some amazing images; one of a boy Legend-Teigen annd one of a girl Legen-Teigen. Coverage for these concept images came in from the Mail Online - thanks guys!
We recently conducted some research into the number of vegetarians who eat meat when they are drunk. Our research found that 1 in 3 vegetarians eat meat when they are drunk. The research was really interesting for us here and couldn't wait to get it out to the press. The response we have seen has been incredible! The likes of the Independent, Metro, Yahoo, Huffington Post and the Telegraph ran the story in the UK. We didn't, however, expect the response we received over in America. We've received incredible numbers of coverage including Fox News, Elite Daily, Daily Wire, Today FM, Mother Jones, App.com and many many more. We were also covered on USA Today, which is the subject of today's press article.
Happy Monday all and welcome to a slightly belated press article from us at VoucherCodesPro! It's been a busy period in VCP towers, with Black Friday and Christmas fastly approaching and preperations underway. As money saving experts, we are extremely keen to spread our expert knowldege to the British public and various media outlets. As part of this, we've recently worked with the Liverpool Echo to provide 7 tips to cut the cost of Christmas. The tips included getting an ISA, spreading the costs, budgeting and much more.
Here at VoucherCodesPro, we often carry out various pieces of research in a bid to better understand the way that Britons use their money. Our most recent research found that almost two thirds of British fathers' have a secret bank account. Furthermore, we found that almost a quarter of those who opened a secret bank account to fund a secret affair. This news was covered on the Metro.
As a money saving website, we're all about saving people money. We scour the web and use our exclusive contacts to get Britons the best possible deals. Our site includes incredible deals and discount codes for everyone to use from some of Britons top retailers, including Sky, National Express and Argos. We always have various exclusive codes and discounts on VoucherCodesPro, including Low Cost Holidays, HQ Hair and Mankind. As part of our PR outreach, we are constantly looking for ways to get exposure for our discounts. The Sun's MRS CRUNCH recently covered our Low Cost Holidays discount in the paper, which is fantastic!
At VoucherCodesPro, we're always keen to carry out various pieces of research in order to get a better understanding of Britons and our customers. We recently undertook a few bits of research into Britons' behavioural trends on social media. One of these pieces of research led to some particuarly interesting results, as we found that half of Britons lie about their relationship status on social media. This got some great coverage, including Reveal.co.uk - the focus of this press article.
We often carry out various pieces into the habits of Britons and their preferences. Recently we carried out a piece of research into the UK's favourite sex scenes in films. We found that Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis' scene in the Black Swan came out at number 1. The top 10 were revealed as follows: 1)Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) & The Black Swan (Mila Kunis): Black Swan – 49% 2)Noah (Ryan Gosling) & Allie (Rachel McAdams): The Notebook – 42% 3)Jack (Jake Gyllenhaal) & Ennis (Heath Ledger): Brokeback Mountain’s – 39% 4)Jack (Leonardo Di Caprio) & Rose (Kate Winslet): Titanic – 37% 5)Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) & Anastasia (Dakota Johnson): 50 Shades of Grey – 35% 6)Edward (Richard Gere) & Vivian (Julia Roberts): Pretty Woman– 34% 7)Edward (Robert Pattinson) & Bella (Kristen Stewart): Twilight – 30% 8)Dan (Michael Douglas) & Alex (Glenn Close): Fatal Attraction – 28% 9)Edward (James Spader) & Lee (Maggie Gyllenhaal): Secretary – 27% 10)Jonny (Patrick Swayze) & Baby (Jennifer Grey): Dirty Dancing – 21% Our research was covered in the Sun, the Dail Star and the Mirror, which is the focus of this press example.
Today's coverage round-up comes from some popular research that we undertook recently. As you all know, we're big fans of conducting research in a bid to see what effects Britons and their views on various subjects. Contraception is a big talking point in the UK, so we based our latest research on that. Whilst the burden often lies on women to sort out contraception, a male contraception pill has been discussed for a long time. We thought we'd carry out some research to see what men really thought about the pill and whether they would take one. We have to say that we were definitely surprised by the results of the survey, with only 1 in 10 British men saying that they would take a male contraceptive pill. A majority of these said that they thought that contraception was the woman's concern. The research got a lot of attention, with coverage on the Sun, the Debrief, the Telegraph and more. It was also covered on the Huffington Post, which is the subject of our coverage round-up today. The Huffington Post was set up in May 2005 by Arianna Huffington. It has developed from a blog into one of the most popular online media outlets in the World. It's a great piece of coverage and they even included a follow link to our site - thanks!
Today's coverage round-up comes from some fantastic coverage this week in the Sun. As a money saving website, we love conducting research to see what Britons think about various financial issues in the UK. We recently conducted research into the BBC and the licence fee that Britons pay to watch it. We found that almost half of Britons would rather the BBC featured adverts than pay the licence fee. This research was covered in the Sun this week, which is the subject of our coverage round-up today.
Today's coverage round-up comes for some brilliant coverage on the Mail Online. We've gained a bit of a reputation of making concept images following the announcement of celebrity couples expecting new children. We had produced some fantastic ones in the past, including how North West would look, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. We were approached by Bianca London, of the Daily Mail, who wanted us to create some concept images of Andy Murray and Kim Murray's baby. The couple announced they were pregnant recently, much to the delight of many. We set our designers the task of seeing what a male and female baby would look like. The images were covered by the Mail Online who included a follow link to our site! It was also included on the Huffington Post, who included two follow links to our site! Lovely!
Morning folks. Today's press round-up comes from a great piece of trade coverage that was secured at the start of this week. As you know, we love carrying out various pieces of research to get a better idea of what Britons like, enjoy and do. We've saved Britons over £1 million since starting out. We use our research to understand Britons so that we can tailor our savings and deals to them and their needs. We recently conducted research into whether or not Britons take out travel insurance and the ultimate cost of this. We found that a majority of Britons did not take out travel insurance and it costs those that lost items abroad on average £390. Those who lost an item but did not have insurance did not replace the lost item as they could not afford to do so! This was covered on the International Travel Insurance Journal, which originally launched in 1999. The journal contains expert news and opinions on the world of travel insurance. Our research was covered in print and online, with a readership of 20,000.
Today's coverage round-up comes for recent research which was covered in the Daily Express. We often carry out pieces of research to get an insight into what Britons do and their views. We recently carried out research into Britons' experience with ghosts and supernatural beings. We found that more than half of Britons claim to have had contact with ghosts. Furthermore, we found that 82% of Britons believe in the supernatural. Our research gained some great coverage, including on the Daily Star and the Daily Express. It's the latter that is the focus of our round-up today, with a great article written up on the research. The Daily Express is a national newspaper with a daily readership of 461,873. Their online monthly visits are 9,369,809 so it's a great place to secure some coverage.
Happy Friday all! Today's coverage round-up comes from a fantastic feature that we've been working on recently. We've been in touch with some fab blogs the past few weeks and managed to secure a feature for VoucherCodesPro on WorkingMums.co.uk. The site which, was founded in 2006 by Gillian Nissim, helps mums find flexible work, bridging the gap between employers and working mums. We worked with the site on a feature looking at ways to keep your children entertained over the summer holidays. The piece was written by our founder Nick Swan and contains some great tips and hints. They ran the feature and included a follow link to the site.
Today's coverage round-up comes for some pretty cool concept images that we constructed in the VoucherCodesPro office. We wondered what various British landmarks would look like if they were modernised for the digital era. Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Bath Roman Baths and Stonhenge got our designers treatment in the piece. The results were interesting! Big Ben was digitalised with a digital clock face, a live stream of BBC News and digital advert hoardings. Buckingham Palace had holographic guards, a live stream inside the Palace and a live feed of the Queen's Twitter. Bath's Roman Baths was made into the ultimate modern relaxation attraction, with a bar, cinema screen and more. Stonehenge gets selfie pods to get the perfect snap at the attraction, along with self-driving tour guides. We gained coverage for this in TNT Magazine and Silicon Republic, the subject of this press round-up!
This week's coverage round-up comes courtesy of a great feature from our very own big boss Nick Swan. We've worked with MSN Money recently on some first hand, exclusive money saving-features, the first of which went live this week. The topic of our first feature has concentrated on last-minute holidays. Nick Swan has given his top 6 tips for bagging a last-minute holiday bargain this summer. Nick's tips include waiting for the end of the summer break to book your holiday, checking company's deals and price promises and much more. MSN Money is a fantastic financial news outlet, run by the awesome MSN team, so we're delighted to be working with then on these exclusive features.
Good morning all! Today's latest press article comes after a fantastic week of coverage for us here at VoucherCodesPro. We recently conducted some research into the body perceptions of Britons, in a bid to see what effect celebrity culture and social media has on body image in Britain. We see a lot of this in the press, with different body fads sweeping across the country. Some are small fads that aren't really a big deal, but some are intense fads that are a risk to Briton's health. Our research certainly pulled up some interesting results, with those polled suggesting that a toned stomach and toned bum are the most desirable body features. The top 5 was revealed as: - Toned stomach - Toned bum - Defined arms - Visible collarbone - Thigh gap The survey certainly gathered a good amount of interest across the press, with the likes of Metro, Women's Health, The Debrief and Harvey Medical Group running the story. Today's Press Article focuses on some fantastic coverage from BT.com, who included a followed link to the VoucherCodesPro site.
Today’s coverage has appeared on Love Money, on the subject of pet spending. Pets are a big part of the lives of some people, in some ways they can feel like they are another member of the family. So much that people end up spending a lot of money on them. We had found in a recent survey that pet owners spend over £70,000 in their lifetime on their animals. We had interviewed thousands of Britons who were over the age of 18. We asked them about their spending habits in relation to their pets. We had them take into account everything they bought for them, including food housing and insurance costs. From the results of the survey, we had found that Dogs were the most expensive pets, costing over £20,000 over their lifetime. Cats came in second place, costing just over £16,000. Surprisingly we found that 42% of people interviewed bought more treats for their pets than themselves. Just over one in ten pet owners had put themselves into debt looking after their pets. Love Money are a website dedicated to helping people get the best out of their money, and it’s great that information from us has been featured on the website. Being featured with them makes sense as we both make a serious effort to help people get the most out of their money.

Today's coverage round-up comes from a recent survey of ours, which detailed that the average age expectancy has gone up significantly when it comes to major life events. We polled Britons aged between 18 and 25 to see at what age they had, or expected to, complete different life events. We listed events such as moving out of your parents house, getting a mortgage and getting a credit card, amongst others. Our research has got a great response, being covered by the Daily Mirror and the Metro, who also included a link to our site!
Morning folks! Today's press round-up contains some brilliant coverage for one of our in-depth surveys this time. We recently conducted a survey of British consumers to see who they thought would be the next big company to go bust. We presented them with a list of possible answers, with Sainsbury's coming out on top. When asked why they thought this, Britons revealed that it was mainly due to their recent financial losses. Furthermore, a majority of Britons thought that the supermarket would go bust within five years. Our survey was covered by Real Business, Retail Gazette and Retail Systems.
Today's coverage round-up comes from the lovely people at OK! The #KylieJennerChallenge craze has spread across social media in recent times, so it got us thinking in the office - how would celebrities look if they did the #KylieJennerChallenge? After a few members of staff in the VoucherCodesPro office tried the challenge themselves (unsuccessfully, I must add), we put our brilliant graphic designers to the test to see what they could come up with. The celebrities on our hit list? The all-round controversial Katie Hopkins, the recent second time Mum (oh, and the Duchess of Cambridge) Kate Middleton, Harry Potter star Emma Watson and finally Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow. The results were hilarious; with OK! using the images online. They also included two fabulous links to our site in the piece - thanks guys!
In the build-up to this year's general election, we have seen some brilliant, some hilarious and some brilliant quotes from Politicians. David Cameron has said his favourite team is West Ham, when he's an Aston Villa fan really (easy mistake, right?), whilst Nick Clegg compared Nigel Farage to 'Victor Meldrew on stilts'. This got us all thinking in the VoucherCodesPro office about how Politician's quotes would compared to the famous Page 3 Models. So what did we do about it? Well, we built a microsite to host a fantastic quiz of 'who said it: Politicians or Page 3 girls?' The quiz can be found at www.mugsorjugs.co.uk. The news of our fantastically fun quiz made it's way to the Daily Star, who have done a fantastic write up on the site. The article claims that our quiz finally injects a bit of fun into the snorefest that is the general election. Make sure to test your mugs and jugs knowledge at www.mugsorjugs.co.uk

We've done some research recently into Britons' perception of the NHS; and our findings were shocking! Our researchers found that Britons predict the death of the NHS by 2025! A rather shocking thought! A majority of Britons believed that the downfall of the NHS will be caused by major cost cutting as the country faces extended financial problems and budgeting. Over half of respondents revealed that they did not have faith in the NHS. Our research was covered by the lovely people at the Daily Star.
Morning all!Today's press article comes from some brilliant coverage for VoucherCodesPro. We've carried out some more research into the finances of Britons, and have found that a high number of Brits are spending an extortionate amount of money on lottery tickets and scratch cards per year. Our research polled a number of Britons to see how much they spent on lottery and scratch cards each year, which revealed a yearly spend of £416. This is a ridiculous amount and we could't believe how much Britons were spending. Furthermore, just shy of 40% of Britons bought 4 lottery tickets EVERY WEEK. Crazy, right? Our research got some good coverage, including a piece on BT.com.
As a money saving website, we're all about cutting those cost and saving Britons money. Whilst we carry out regular research into the finances of Britons, our main goal is to save you money.

This week we tasked our expert graphic designer to see how certain celebrities will look how they're older. Taylor Swift, Eddie Redmayne, Kanye West, Miley Cyrus and Sam Smith were subject of our concept images this week. They were aged to show how they would look when they are OAPs. The results were brilliant! Kanye sports a grey beard, Taylor Swift looks as elegant as ever and Eddie Redmayne is a silver fox. The coverage of our concept images have been brilliant; with Daily Star, Cosmopolitan, MSN, OK, Yahoo! and many more featuring our images. The coverage I have chosen to feature today is from the Daily Express.
Happy Friday folks! It's been a busy week here at VoucherCodesPro but we've had some great coverage this week. My favourite piece of coverage secured this week has been the inclusion of some of our research on Mashable, the online news outlet. We previously conducted some research on the the amount of time Britons spent on their phone, which revealed that 62% of Britons hate how much time they spend on their phones. The research was covered in a great article by Amy-Mae Elliot, which looked at 5 simple ways to spend less time on your phone. The article linked to the VoucherCodesPro website, which is really great.
Today's press article comes off the back of some research carried out by the team here at VoucherCodesPro. We have conducted some research as part of our ongoing study into the financial habits of Britons. This weeks research was carried out into the amount of money Britons spend on lottery tickets and scratch cards. Our research showed that the average Britons blows £416 a year on lottery and scratch cards. We were really shocked at this amount, and would really urge Britons to cut down the amount they spend on lottery tickets and scratch cards. Our research got some great coverage, including on msN, the money pages and BT.com. It was also covered on AOL, which is the focus over this press article.
Here at VoucherCodesPro we are constantly carrying out various pieces of research to get a better understanding of Britons and us as a nation.

February was the most common month for those to shoplift, according to our research. The lovely guys over at the Times covered our piece in their print edition this week - thanks!
As retail experts, we're always keen to cast our net and spread our knowledge as far as possible. This week, our founder and CEO, Nick Swan, has been making comments on the price of female cosmetics. 'Why is it so expensive to be a woman?' was a feature in the Daily Mail, investigating the reasons behind the increased price for female products over male products. The feature looked at a variety of products and cosmetics, and why male versions of the items are cheaper than those for females. Nick Swan provided comments on why women's cosmetics are more expensive, why women's haircuts are more expensive and why women's fashion is more expensive than men's. Nick's comments on why women pay more money in salon is included in the Daily Mail piece, which is included in the print edition and online.
The General Election is happening this year, yet a number of Brits do not know this, according to our recent research. We're big on politics here at VoucherCodesPro and were absolutely shocked that our research revealed that a majority of Brits did not know there was a general election this year. Our research got some coverage on national publication websites, including the Telegraph. It was also covered by i100, a section by the Independent, who posted our research with some graphs that they had drawn up. They titled it 'Seven Charts That Will Make You Truly Worried About British Democracy.' It's some great coverage for us here at VoucherCodesPro, and they even gave us a link to our site. Thanks guys!

Happy Friday all! Today's VCP Press Page update brings coverage from Yahoo! Lifestyle. We're big fans of research here, with a dedicated team operating regular surveys, so it's always great when we can get some coverage for our research. Yahoo! Lifestyle journalist Alison Coldridge ran our research on children using mobile phones. Our research revealed that three quarters of children aged 10 and under have mobile phones. It's a really shocking figure and we couldn't believe it when we got our results back! I didn't have my phone until I was at least 13 - and that was only a Nokia 3310!! Our research also revealed that parents aren't using many of the security options available to protect their children, which is extremely worrying!
We're not gonna lie, there's a few celeb obsessed staff here at Voucher Codes Pro. From Taylor Swift to Ed Sheeran, you bet ya', we've got a fan. A conversation that often get's brought up in the VoucherCodesPro office (apart from how can we save Britons money) is what would certain celebrities look like if they weren't famous? Back last year we embarked on a fantastically fun journey to see what certain celebs would look like. We armed our design gurus with a list of names and ideas to see what they would come up with. The results were spectacular. Kim Kardashian, David Beckham and a few others were our first victims, and looked simply brilliant! Now, we've revamped this brilliant idea and set our target on a new set of fab celebs. Harry Styles, Katie Price, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (or Cole as I'm still stuck calling her) and a few others are our new targets - and we love them! The images were covered by the Mail Online who absolutely love them! Thanks guys!
We're starting 2015 with a bang as today's coverage for VoucherCodesPro comes from BT.com. At VoucherCodesPro, we care about saving people money, so that is why we carry out a bunch of regular research to see what money issues Britons have. Our latest research found that 'money' is one of the main causes of arguments amongst UK couples. A quarter of couples argued regularly over money, whilst the kids and household chores were revealed as the other top causes of arguments. We got some great coverage for this piece, including on BT.com. The website has over 2,000,000 monthly visitors, so it's great exposure. The lovely people over at BT also gave us a followed link - thanks guys! Check out the coverage below!
At VoucherCodesPro we're always on the lookout for concept image opportunities. We love having a bit of fun with concepts and putting our brilliant designers skills to the test! This week, following the phenomenon of Frozen, we decided to see how the film's main characters would look if they were real life people. Our graphic design team at VoucherCodesPro mocked up images of Elsa, Anna, Hanz and Kristoff and the results were fantastic. The concept images were covered by Cosmopolitan Online, who LOVED the images. The article claimed that ' these drawings of what Frozen characters might look like in-real-life are actually pretty cool.'
VoucherCodesPro are constantly conducting research into the financial habits of Britons. Our latest research looked into the top 10 reasons why Britons take out a loan. Researchers found that the top 10 reasons included 'to buy gifts for others,' 'To go on holiday,' 'To purchase a car,' and 'To pay off other debts.' VoucherCodesPro's research was covered on The Money Pages, the media outlet for personal finance and savings. Nick Swan commented on the research: “Loans should be an absolute last resort and only be used in an emergency, not to splash out on holidays, luxury items or new cars. To see that so many use loans to make ends meet or repay existing debt is very sad. There is help available to those with financial woes, so people should seek out their other options before turning to loans.”
Here at VoucherCodesPro.co.uk we're always keen to work on different projects, especially ones that are a bit of fun. There's a number of football fans (particularly our founder, Nick Swan!) in the VoucherCodesPro office, so we thought it'd be funny to see how some of today's England stars would look if they played during the 1970s. Our design team here have had some fun with the England players, adding some dodgy hairdo's and 'staches to today's stars. Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling have been jazzed up to look like 70's stars such as Kevin Keegan, Chris Waddle and Viv Anderson. The concept images were featured by the Express, who also linked to the VoucherCodesPro.co.uk site. Thanks guys!
This week, VoucherCodesPro.co.uk were featured in a feature in the Daily Express. The feature was written by Jasmine Birtles and details how it is cheaper to be items abroad than in the UK. She claims that we live in rip-off Britain. VoucherCodesPro.co.uk supplied some information about various prices to Jasmine for the feature, whilst also providing a comment from our CEO and founder, Nick Swan, on the matter. In the feature, Nick said: “American prices for goods such Apple products are considerably cheaper. "An iPad can be up to £80 cheaper across the pond, so it’s silly not to take advantage of these lower prices while travelling.” The piece was covered on the Daily Express website, and in the print edition.
VoucherCodesPro.co.uk commission several weekly surveys in order to get a better understanding of the spending habits of Britons, amongst other things. Recently, we conducted research into energy discounts, after seeing an increase of 180% in searches for energy discounts on our site. As a result of this, we conducted a national survey to see how much Britons spent on energy, and which areas were the most effected. We found that the West Midlands searched the most for energy discounts, whilst also spending the second highest on their energy in the country. It is clear that these two are linked, with those who spend the least on energy, such as the South East, also searching for discounts less frequently. The research was covered on the Bedfordshire on Sunday website, who also gave VoucherCodesPro.co.uk two followed links. Thanks guys!
Following Daniel Radcliffe's epic rap performance on the Jimmy Kimmel show over in American, our fab design team here at VoucherCodesPro.co.uk decided to have a bit of fun.

We recently conducted an in depth survey, which looked into the cost of being in hospital. Our survey revealed that the cost of a hospital stay can be excessive, both for the in-patient and their visitors. We supplied the research findings for freelance journalist Alice Smellie, who was writing a piece for the Mail On Sunday. Alice featured our research in a fantastic piece in the Mail On Sunday, titled 'Mugged in Our Hospital Beds.' Our findings were covered along with research from our companies, as well as a case study who had suffered from the excessive costs within hospitals.

VoucherCodesPro have got some brilliant coverage this week, including some fantastic mentions in a number of national publications, including the Daily Mail Online. A story circulated this week about Katie Slaney, a newly-wed Bride who saved thousands of pounds on her wedding through careful budgeting and using VoucherCodesPro! Many would think that Katie's wedding would be look cheap and be minimalistic, but Katie went all out to get the wedding of her dreams, which would normally cost £21,000, for only £2,000! It's a really great story, that shows that if you carefully plan, put in some hard work and use money saving websites, like VoucherCodesPro, then you really can have the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank! We're chuffed for Katie, and thank her for using VoucherCodesPro. It's an honour for us to save Katie, and others, money daily - especially when it can make such a big difference to a special day.

VoucherCodesPro's junior web developer, Karen Lee, was featured in a piece on The Debrief, an online lifestyle arm of Bauer Media. Stevie Martin, a contributor to The Debrief, was doing a piece on coding, and in particular female coders (or the lack of, in her view). As we've got our female coder, the fantastic Karen Lee, we thought we'd help her out. The research came following Google's announcement that they are going to train millions of American girls to code, with their current work force taken up by 70% males. Karen was featured in the piece, along with a selection of other female web developers, giving her advice on on the prospect of coding. Karen, a graduate from the University of Gloucestershire, gave her wise words of wisdom, calming the nerves of scared prospective coders, "Don’t think of it as really difficult. Yeah, it’s loads of letters and numbers, and when you see a big file with loads of things it does look confusing, but when you learn in steps it’s actually quite easy," she explains, reassuringly. Check out the fantastic piece below, where Karen, if we say so ourselves, is awesome!

While the rumoured launch of the 7-inch iPad Mini has been cause for excitement among some die hard tablet fans, for others the new device will spell a seriously miscalculated move for Apple.
Ahead of a heavily rumoured Apple iPad Mini release, a new study has suggested any 7-inch Apple tablet release would be a considerable flop
Apple are about to do an about-turn and, if rumours are to believed, release a seven-inch iPad Mini later this year. But one survey suggests the market is not keen for this new size of tablet - with nearly half of those surveyed judging the idea as a 'flop' right out of the gates.
