WE all love saving a few quid here and there… and the rise of money-saving sites on the internet has been great for savvy shoppers.
These are the best of today’s deals on voucher sites Groupon and Wowcher – but be sure to move quickly, since they won’t be around for long.
What are the best deals on Wowcher today?
Micro Pig petting experience: £16 for one person or £39 for the family
If getting hands on with adorable micro pigs is your bag, then this offer could be for you.
For £16, one person can spend 90 minutes petting and playing with one of the lovely critters – or you can spend £39 for a family of two adults and two kids.
That’s a porker of a saving – at 47 per cent – but move quickly before the deal expires on the 7th August.
Tickets to Lego BrickLive at four locations around the UK: £15 per person
BrickLive sees Lego fans gather to show off their amazing creations and buy and sell rare sets.

What are the beast deals on Groupon today?
Personalised LED fidget spinner: £4.99
They may not be quite so popular now, but fidget spinners haven’t gone away.
You can bag one – a personalised, LED one at that – with 81 per cent off as part of an ongoing offer.
The only catch is that delivery will set you back £2.50, with mainland UK the only place eligible.
Two night break in the Cotswolds: £199
If you’re after a quiet weekend away from it all, then this is the offer for you.
For £199, you can spend two nights in a Costwolds hotel, with breakfast included.
However, unless you want to pay extra, the offer only applies for a stay for two people on a Sunday – Thursday before 31 October.
Xpel Mosquito and Insect Repellent Set: £6.98
Travelling on holiday to a tropical climate means not only do you have to slap on the sunscreen, you might also need bug spray.
And for £6.98, down from £27, you could buy a Xpel Mosquito Repellent set, which includes a mosquito spray, two mosquito repellent bands and a plug in diffuser.
Delivery of the product is £1.99 and customers should allow seven working days for the set to arrive.
How do Wowcher and Groupon work?
Wowcher and Groupon both use the power of collective buying to nab discounts for their customers.
The free-to-use sites offer new deals every day on holidays and products – as well as tickets to experiences and events.
You pay through their sites, and get sent a discount code once the offer has been confirmed.
Although there’s a strict time limit on the daily deals, the coupon you get sent may be valid for weeks or even months, so you don’t have to do the activity straight away.
But, it’s worth bearing in mind that Groupon and Wowcher don’t necessarily always offer the best value products and offers compared to other sites.
It’s also worth double-checking before you buy that you cant get the deal cheaper elsewhere.
And, as ever, make sure you familiarise yourself with the specific returns and refunds policies of a deal before you pay for it.
