Students can benefit from discount on rail tickets over the festive period

ScotRail is sleighing its prices for students this Christmas with a 50 per cent discount on train tickets across the railway. College and university students will be able to take advantage of half price travel on any off-peak ScotRail service from Friday, December 10 until Friday, December 24. Available on all singles, returns, and open returns, students will save whatever their festive plans.

All students need to do is turn up at a staffed ticket office with their valid ID, purchase their half-price ticket, and jump on board. The savings will extend into January too, as customers who buy off-peak open return tickets will have up to one month to use the return portion for their journey back to colleague or university - up to Sunday, January 23, 2022, for tickets purchased on Christmas Eve.

ScotRail is offering students a 50 per cent discount on train tickets this Christmas. ScotRail is offering students a 50 per cent discount on train tickets this Christmas.

ScotRail commercial director Lesley Kane said: "Christmas can be tough for everyone - and for students it's no different. It can be hard trying to keep up with studies, balance finances, and make time to see friends and family.

"We think this half price deal on tickets is the best gift we can give them before Christmas and we're sure it will be very popular amongst students, whether they're heading into town with friends or making the journey home to see loved ones at this special time of year."

Encouraging indications that £100 high street voucher scheme in Northern Ireland has worked

There were strong arguments made in favour of a high street voucher scheme for Northern Ireland when it was proposed, and against.

(C) News Letter editorial

Among the arguments against was the fact that UK had already been flooded with Covid support money from the Treasury and that yet a further cash injection would merely help to push up prices. One of the key arguments in favour was that it would spur people not only to spend their GBP100 voucher but use to help fund larger purchases and so unlock further expenditure. That GBP500 item that you have your eye on does not sound so pricey if you can get it for GBP400.

There are now hopeful indications that the scheme has indeed worked in the way that was intended. Data from NI Retail Consortium suggests that in November the number of shoppers in the province reached its highest level since pre pandemic, down 5.2% on 2019 compared to 16%-20% down in England, Wales, Scotland. This is a hugely encouraging set of figures.

There are calls to extend the December 14 deadline for the vouchers, but the current end date still gives people 10 days to use their GBP100, after which there will the usual festive Christmas commerce and then new year sales footfall. Better to keep the sales date as it is and let seasonal momentum take over. Meanwhile, Stormont should continue to urge people to get jabbed so we can avoid the horror and social injustice of yet another lockdown.

Harris Teeter Regular Double Coupon Policy Basics

Harris Teeter doubles coupons every day of the week automatically. Coupons with a face value of £0.99 or less are doubled automatically everyday (unless the coupon indicated Do Not Double). Harris Teeter will double up to 20 coupons per day, per household.

Harris Teeter will double up to 3 identical coupons (must have required product to go with each coupon). BOGO sales ring up at half price. If you just buy one, it still rings up at half price.

You can use a coupon on each item in a BOGO deal. So, if you buy 2 items that are BOGO, you can use two coupons (which is a very good thing!). Shoppers cannot use a coupon with a rain check.

Rain checks expire in 60 days. Senior discount: Seniors 60 and older receive a 5% discount every Thursday. Discount applies after coupons are deducted.

Harris Teeter digital e-coupons: Harris Teeter digital coupons are available to load to your Vic card. These digital coupons CANNOT be combined with paper manufacturer's coupons. They will not double.

The official Harris Teeter Coupon Policy can be found on their website.

Harris Teeter Super Doubles Coupon Policy Basics

Harris Teeter offers the Super Doubles Promotion on a regular basis. When they offer the promotion, we will let you know before it starts. During the pandemic, Harris Teeter is not offering Super Doubles events.

* HT should be Super Doubling coupons worth up to £2 face value. This means that a £1.00 coupon will double to £2.00, a £1.50 coupon will double to £3.00 and a £2.00 coupon will double to £4.00! * HT begins super doubling coupons at 7:00 AM on the first day of the sale.

24 hour stores do not super double coupons before 7:00 AM on the first day (at least that is how it has always worked in the past). Your best bet is to get to the store before 7 am if you want to get the freebies and best deals. Some people get there at 6:15 am or earlier and then wait in line until the register allows coupons to begin Super Doubling at 7 am.

* HT will super double/double up to 20 coupons per household per day. Spouse's cards registered with the same address are linked because the policy is 20 per household, per day. If you have twenty £1 coupons and twenty .75 coupons, only 20 total will double.

They will not double 20 coupons that are under £1 and also super double another 20 coupons that are over £1. It's 20 total coupons that are £2 or less doubled per day. * HT policy is to double up to 3 identical coupons (as long as you buy the product required for each coupon, of course).

So, if you have five £1.00 coupons for a product, the policy is to only super double the first three. The other 2 will be accepted at face value. * Printable coupons: HT will accept 3 printable coupons per like item, per store, per day, according to their policy.

So if you buy 3 identical items and you have a printable coupon for each one, you can use all three. * New Raincheck policy as of March 29, 2017: Harris Teeter will no longer let customers combine a raincheck with a coupon for the same item. In addition, rainchecks now expire 60 days after they are issued.

* If your store is out of your favorite deals (and they will be out of some of them) ask the customer service folks when the next truck arrives so you know when they will be restocking. * Enjoy the deals you are able to get and please remember that many of the best deals will sell out quickly. The stores will reorder those items, but often, the warehouse runs out so they cannot get the stock.

Please be nice to the store employees as it is not their fault if items are out of stock.

And if you are excited about your great deals, give Harris Teeter a call at their Customer Service number, send them an e-mail via their website or post a comment to their Facebook page to thank them.

Happy Shopping!

21 browser extensions and apps that’ll save you money this holiday season

honey-11-3.png

Honey is one of the many browser extensions that can save you some money while shopping. 

Honey

The dust and pixels from Black Friday and Cyber Monday have settled (though many of the best deals are still good). And it's only the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Is your wallet ready? 

According to a recent survey from the National Retail Federation, people plan to spend almost £1,000 on gifts, holiday items and non-gift purchases this year despite supply chain issues.

If reading that number awakens your inner Scrooge, we found 11 apps and browser extensions to make sure you don't start the new year with an empty bank account. Read more: Browser extensions for free books, better privacy and less distraction A quick privacy note: The extensions on this list work by scanning every site you visit for potential coupons, which could potentially expose you to some security issues.

Before installing any of them, it's worth your while to check out its privacy policy. CNET Deals & Promotions

Be the first to know the newest hot deals from CNET.

Honey

Honey compares prices between Amazon, Amazon's third-party sellers and other online retailers, factoring in estimated shipping costs and Prime status to find the best deal.  Once you install the browser extension (on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera or Edge) and navigate to a product page on Amazon, you'll see the "h" icon appear over the product photo.

Clicking it takes you to the Drop List feature, which shows the product's price history and lets you set an alert for drops. If you see a tag that says "Best deal," you can be confident that no other Amazon seller offers a lower price.  You can also search for products through the extension or on Honey's website to see current and historical pricing, coupons and availability on a range of e-commerce sites such as Walmart, JCPenney and Home Depot. 

PriceBlink

PriceBlink also offers price comparisons and coupons, but with a slightly different interface.

Once installed (on Chrome or Firefox), when you navigate to an online shopping site, a yellow bar will appear at the top of the screen. It will alert you to any available deals and coupons on the site, and if a better price is available elsewhere. When you navigate to an item on Amazon, click "Compare prices" on the bar at the top to see where else it's available, along with the base price, shipping costs and total price.

If Amazon has the best price, the bar will say "Next best price." If it doesn't, it will say "Savings found! Buy this for less" and list the amount and the other site.  PriceBlink also lets you track pricing over time and add items to your wish list, as well as find coupons on its website. 

PriceBlink alerts you to better deals elsewhere (in this case eBay) on the same product.

InvisibleHand

InvisibleHand is a browser extension that looks for the lowest prices on rental cars, hotels and flights in addition to coupons and deals from online retailers.

That way traveling across the country to see your in-laws won't break the bank (just your spirits).

Pricescout

Similar to both Honey and PriceBlink, Pricescout can find coupon codes for you, while also comparing prices across different retailers. While you're shopping, it scans the sites of over 21,000 retailers and will pop up with better prices. 

Capital One Shopping

Capital One Shopping is a free browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari. Once installed, the extension will instantly apply the best available coupons and discounts codes to your purchase at checkout. 

The expansion does price comparison among other retailers and sellers across Amazon as well, so you can find the best deal possible without having to research it yourself. The extension says it even offers rewards while you shop that can be redeemed as gift cards.

Rakuten

Rakuten, formerly known as Ebates, is an e-commerce site that gives customers cash-back for shopping. Former CNET editor Rick Broida described it as "easy to use and comes with no strings attached." Rakuten, however, does collect data about where you shop and what you buy. 

Read more: Surprising ways to get cash back without even trying Available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Safari, the Rakuten browser extension alerts you when cash-back savings are available and saves you the detour to Rakuten's site when actively purchasing. It sometimes finds coupon codes for you as well.

OctoShop lets you set alerts for price drops and in-stock notifications. 

OctoShop/Screenshot by Alison DeNisco Rayome/CNET

Octoshop

The OctoShop browser extension compares prices across retailers, but it also has the ability to notify you when a product, like the Xbox Series X, Playstation 5 or Nintendo Switch OLED, restocks.

You can set restock notifications for different retailers as well as price drop alerts. It also compares shipping speeds so you aren't waiting until next year for your order. OctoShop is available on Chrome, Edge and Firefox.

RetailMeNot

RetailMeNot's Deal Finder browser extension automatically applies the best available discount codes and cash-back options at checkout.

The extension is supported by more than 20,000 retailers, including Target, Macy's, Lenovo and DoorDash. CNET has been singing the tool's praises since 2010 for making online coupon hunting less annoying.

Piggy

Piggy finds the lowest prices available and automatically applies coupon slides and cash-back options at checkout. The extension works at over 6,000 online stores including Amazon and eBay.

According to Piggy, the extension can save you up to 55% on select hotels as well. 

Slickdeals

Like many other browser extensions on this list, Slickdeals shows customers the best deals, coupons and cash-back options available at the time of purchase from the online retailers that support it. 

Cently for Chrome

Cently, formerly known as Coupons at Checkout, is a Chrome extension that finds coupon codes for thousands of online retailers and shows you the best ones at checkout. Cently also has a feature called Amazon Best Price which tells you when a product is cheaper from another Amazon seller.

Amazon Assistant for Chrome

If you're an Amazon fanatic, you'll love this extension. The Amazon Assistant for Chrome is Amazon's official browser extension.

It finds you the Deal of the Day, offers product and price comparisons and saves products from any website to your Amazon wish list.

The Camelizer from Camelcamelcamel

Most savvy shoppers know that shopping at certain times can snag you the best deals. The Camelizer is an extension that shows you the price history of an item you're browsing on Amazon to help you decide whether to buy now or wait for a better deal. It will also send you price drop alerts via email or Twitter, and you can import your Amazon wish list so that you'll know when your heart's desire goes on sale. Pro tip: If The Camelizer graph looks a little funny, right-click it and open it in a new tab.

Offers.com

Offers.com is a place to check for special deals such as free shipping, buy-one-get-one-free and other perks that can save you money when shopping online.

This Firefox extension also finds coupon codes. When it finds a code, it saves it for you and adds it to your shopping cart. The extension also opens another browser page and displays all of the sales for the site you're viewing, so you never miss a great deal.

Fakespot

This dashcam has a 4.6-star average rating from over 100 customers, but Fakespot gave those reviews an F.

Screenshot by Rick Broida/CNET

User reviews give you an idea of the quality of a product before you buy.

The problem is, many companies hire people to post good reviews for bad products on sites like Amazon. Fakespot is an extension that analyzes reviews to see which ones are baloney and which you can trust so you're less likely to waste your money on a dud.

CouponCabin

CouponCabin is different from other money-saving browser extensions because it gives you little tips every time you do a search on Google, whether you're wanting to buy or not. Say you're Googling information on the latest Stephen King book. CouponCabin will give you a little alert in your search results that it's on sale.

You can also earn 10% cash back by using this extension.

ShopSavvy

The ShopSavvy app uses your phone's camera to scan barcodes to find the best price from physical and digital retailers. Its website also offers "Best Time to Buy" guides, which chart price fluctuations on products like computers, cameras and televisions over the past 90 days. ShopSavvy is free to download in the App Store and the Play store.

Affirm

Affirm helps you pay off more expensive purchases -- like the Apple Watch Series 7 or a new gaming console -- in smaller installments.

Affirm offers financing plans that range between three months to two years, with interest rates between zero and 30%. There are no late fees, but missing payments could hurt your credit score. Not all retailers accept Affirm, but Amazon and more than 11,000 other online retailers do.

Affirm is free to download in the App Store and the Play store.

AfterPay

AfterPay is another buy now, pay later option. While other apps might let you make smaller payments over a longer period of time, with AfterPay you only make four payments. The first payment is due upon checkout, and usually the other payments are due every other week.

There's also an option to make payments once a month. As long as you make your payments, you won't be charged any late fees or interest. If you miss a payment, you're charged £10, and if you don't make the payment within seven days, you're charged another £7.

AfterPay isn't accepted at Amazon, but it is accepted by more than 85,000 online retailers.  AfterPay is free to download in the App Store and the Play store.

Splitwise

Splitwise is an app that makes splitting any bills over the holidays easy. The app lets you create groups and add people by name or email.

Enter the price of a group dinner or a hotel room and then split the cost among the group members. You can split the cost evenly or you can enter different amounts for people in your group. Splitwise Pro can also scan receipts and recognize different items on the receipt so they can be assigned to members of your group.

The Pro version can also convert bills using exchange rates on international trips. One downside to Splitwise is you can't settle up in the app. You either pay in cash or use another app like Venmo.

Splitwise is free to download in the App Store and the Play store. Splitwise Pro costs £3 a month or £30 annually.

Venmo

The Venmo app makes it easy to give cash for the holidays, and who doesn't like cash? The app also lets you split bills from retailers that accept Venmo as payment.

Otherwise, you have to do the math and request money from people through the app. Using Venmo in conjunction with Splitwise could help alleviate that stress. Venmo is free to download in the App Store and the Play store.

Sheffield bin strike: More than 71,000 homes affected by delayed collections

With the discount, renewals for the coming year's service from February 28, will cost GBP37 for a single brown bin, or GBP69 for two bins.

The council say the discount will be applied automatically for customers who renew online by card, or who pay by annual direct debit.

Tom Smith, Rotherham Council's assistant director of community safety and street scene, said: "It was disappointing to have to pause the garden waste service, but necessary to ensure that general waste collections and other essential work could continue.

Cut to NorthLink food and drink discount riles isles politicians

featured newsDecember 3, 2021 at 1:17 pm

Orkney politicians are railing against a cut to an islander discount on NorthLink Ferries vessels. Both Orkney MSP Liam McArthur and Northern Isles MP Alistair Carmichael have shared their disappointment over the company's decision to shelve the on board food and drink discount for island residents. They believe that this decision is "ill-judged" and came "without warning".

While Mr Carmichael has launched a petition calling on NorthLink to re-instate the 20 per cent discount, Mr McArthur shared his dismay over the cut. "The decision by Northlink to drop the islander discount on meals and drinks is ill-judged and makes little sense," he said. "The reason for having the discount in place in the first instance hasn't changed so why has the policy.

"It is also disappointing that there was no advance warning let alone public consultation, ahead of the change being made. "Along with my Shetland colleague, Beatrice Wishart, I will be making representations to Northlink and the Transport Minister, highlighting the impact this decision will have on islanders, particularly those on restricted incomes." Asked to comment on the shelving of the discount, Jim Dow, Serco's commercial director at NorthLink Ferries, said: "We are proud to offer an extensive food and drink menu on board that is very reasonably priced and equal for all passengers.

Our commitment to working with local suppliers continues and we are proud to showcase those partnerships.

"While the Islander discount code is no longer in place, all passengers do have access to a variety of choices and price points."

At the time of publication, Mr Carmichael's petition -- on www.alistaircarmichael.co.uk/northlinkdiscountnow -- had gained over 1,000 signatures.

Brand-new Super Soco CU mini coming soon to the UK



Brand-new Super Soco Cu Mini Coming Soon To The Uk

Brand-new Super Soco CU mini coming soon to the UK - See it first at Motorcycle Live

The latest model from the UK's best-selling electric motorcycle brand is coming to the UK. The Super Soco CU miniwill debut at Motorcycle Live at The NEC, Birmingham from 4-12 December, and will be available to pre-order in dealerships very soon. The launch of the CU mini will see Super Soco strengthen its position as the leading provider of lightweight and affordable electric urban transport.

The nimble and efficient model is set to redefine just how simple it can be to get around the city or town in a safe, affordable and environmentally responsible way. Far safer than an e-scooter thanks to already existing legislations and laws, the CU mini's twist and go throttle enables effortless and stable travel through urban areas, making it ideal for the commute. The CU mini will be priced at just GBP1,499 inclusive of 20% discount via the UK Government's Office for Zero Emission Vehicles Funding (OZEF) grant, making it more cost-effective in the long-term than most public transport. A patented 600-watt motor offers dynamic throttle control, while the braking system with 130mm front and rear disc brakes allows for responsive stopping power.

With a top speed of 25mph, the CU mini is AM licence-compliant and can be ridden with a valid CBT or by those who obtained a car licence prior to 2001. The CU mini pushes the boundaries of urban mobility with its removable lithium-ion battery, which is the lightest in its class and offers true flexibility without sacrificing on range. Weighing just 7kg, it can be charged at home or work from any standard three-pin UK plug and can last up to 40km between charges.

Keyless ignition aids ease of operation and an inbuilt alarm and tracking features boast industry-leading security. Coupled with the Super Soco app, you can track the bike in real time and monitor date of discharge from my mobile device. Super Soco will be at Motorcycle Live with its biggest-ever stand, showcasing its existing model range as well as some new and exciting machines.

A selection of Super Soco bikes will also be available for show-goers to ride in the MCIA Try Ride and the Electric Feature. Expert Super Soco staff will be on hand to chat about how you can improve your lifestyle by switching to electric transport. Brand-new Super Soco Cu Mini Coming Soon To The Uk

UK shares: 2 quality stocks I’d buy for 2022

I've been looking at quality UK shares to add to my portfolio for 2022. These two companies updated the market this week and their share prices have risen. In a week when stock markets have generally fallen, this is a good sign that the businesses are trading well.

Let's take a look to see if these stocks are buys for my portfolio. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic... and with so many great companies trading at what look to be 'discount-bin' prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.

But whether you're a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be a daunting prospect during such unprecedented times. Fortunately, The Motley Fool UK analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global upheaval... We're sharing the names in a special FREE investing report that you can download today.

And if you're 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio. Click here to claim your free copy now!

A UK share to profit from the booming housing market

The first company I'm looking at is Belvoir (LSE: BLV). It's a property franchise group specialising in residential lettings and property sales.

The share price has had an unbelievable run since the pandemic low at around 90p in March 2020. As I write, the share price is 260p which marks a near 200% return since then. There's been some weakness lately though as the shares have dropped around 20%.

On Thursday, Belvoir released a trading statement for the 10 months to October saying that the company has performed ahead of the board's expectations. Income grew across the group, with notable strength in property sales that the company said was "mainly a result of the strongest market for property transactions seen since 2007". I normally look out for franchise groups as an investor as they can achieve fantastic business economics.

It's up to the franchisee to invest any upfront costs, leaving the franchisor to collect an income from the potential profit. Indeed, Belvoir's cash generation is excellent, and the business requires little cash investment itself. Last year's operating margin was a stellar 31% too.

I have to keep in mind that Belvoir's business is dependent on the housing market staying strong. Any slowdown in property sales or lettings and profits will fall. But I see this as a quality stock to keep in my portfolio as we head into next year.

A quality investment management company

I've also been looking at Liontrust Asset Management (LSE: LIO).

It's an investment management company offering a range of funds across various asset classes. Liontrust released its half-year report to 30 September on Wednesday and it was very impressive, in my view. Adjusted profit before tax was GBP43.1m, which increased from GBP22.3m in the same period during 2020.

A key metric for an investment management company is assets under management and advice (AuMA) as this figure determines its income generation. Liontrust's AuMA increased by 73% over the 12 months to GBP35.7bn. One of the reasons I think Liontrust is a quality business is its operating margin.

It's able to generate double-digit operating margins consistently, and last year it was an impressive 37%. Not only this, but its return on capital is also consistently in double-digits. A risk to consider before I buy the shares is that stock markets may crash next year.

This would lower Liontrust's AuMA, and therefore income would fall. But on balance, I still think this is a quality UK share for me to own for the long term.

This could also be worth a look...

FREE REPORT: Why this GBP5 stock could be set to surge Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?

If so, get this FREE no-strings report now. While it's available: you'll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead. And the performance of this company really is stunning.

In 2019, it returned GBP150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends. We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we've seen.

  • Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%
  • In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares - a position worth GBP90,259
  • Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)

Quite simply, we believe it's a fantastic Foolish growth pick. What's more, it deserves your attention today.

So please don't wait another moment.

2 dirt-cheap UK shares (including a 6.4% dividend yield) I’d buy today!

I'm searching for the best cheap UK shares to buy for my shares portfolio. Here are two bargains I'm thinking of buying right now.

Playing the online retail boom

The spread of Omicron poses a threat to stacks of UK shares as we move into 2022. Urban Logistics REIT (LSE: SHED), on the other hand, is a stock that could benefit as e-commerce growth rates might receive an additional boost. Analysts at courier Parcel Hero reckon online Christmas spending by Britons will likely match last year's GBP35.3bn as people grow more cautious about visiting shops.

It's even possible that new restrictions (or even lockdowns) in the weeks ahead could propel expenditure well past these levels. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic... and with so many great companies trading at what look to be 'discount-bin' prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.

But whether you're a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be a daunting prospect during such unprecedented times. Fortunately, The Motley Fool UK analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global upheaval... We're sharing the names in a special FREE investing report that you can download today.

And if you're 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio. Click here to claim your free copy now! Urban Logistics provides the essential warehouse and distribution properties that keep e-commerce moving.

So it's well placed to benefit from any rise to online shopping activity. Rents are soaring in this part of the property market as supply fails to keep up with demand. I'd buy Urban Logistics even though weak consumer spending levels could pose a threat to profits growth.

At a current price of 172p per share, Urban Logistics trades on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 22.2 times. I don't think this is an excessive valuation as rapid e-commerce growth appears to be here to stay. Besides, a chunky 4.4% dividend yield for this financial year (to March 2022) helps to take the sting out.

6.4% dividend yields

I haven't stopped championing the wisdom of buying housebuilding stocks like Taylor Wimpey (LSE: TW).

Fresh housing data this week revealed how strong trading conditions remain for such businesses. According to Nationwide, average property prices in the UK rose 0.9% in November from the prior month. This was up from growth of 0.7% reported in October.

A perfect blend of low interest rates, massive competition in the mortgage market and financial support from Help to Buy is keeping housebuyer activity ticking along nicely. And I see no end to this trend either. It's why I already own shares in this particular homebuilder (along with Barratt Developments).

Indeed, Taylor Wimpey has continued hiking its profits forecasts in recent months in light of this bright industry outlook.Demand for homes in the UK continues to outstrip supply by a wide margin, a phenomenon I think will take many years and much hard work by government to solve. City analysts think Taylor Wimpey's earnings will rise 7% next year. This leaves the builder trading on a P/E ratio of just 8.5 times.

Furthermore, at current prices of 162p Taylor Wimpey carries a mighty 6.4% dividend yield.  There are risks. Concerns over the strength of the housing market have grown following the full restoration of Stamp Duty.

Shocking HMRC data, for example, showed home sales more than halved month-on-month in October as people's tax liabilities rose. But I feel Taylor Wimpey's value is hard to ignore. It's why I'm thinking of increasing my holdings in the business today.

5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50

Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic... And with so many great companies still trading at what look to be 'discount-bin' prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains. But whether you're a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be a daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.

Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down... You see, here at The Motley Fool we don't believe "over-trading" is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm. That's why we're sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

If you're 50 or over, we believe these stocks could be a great fit for any well-diversified portfolio, and that you can consider building a position in all five right away.

Govee’s immersive backlights are an affordable way to make your TV glow

If you're looking to step up your TV game and make watching movies and gaming more immersive, Govee offers a range of colorful lighting kits that also make for great holiday gifts. One of its most appealing products are the Immersion TV LED backlights, which sync to whatever you're watching on your 55-inch or 65-inch screen, making it appear as if the TV colors are bleeding out of the frame and onto your walls. Responsive LED strips like these are typically expensive, but right now Govee's 2020 backlighting kit costs just £61 once you clip the £10 off coupon at Amazon.

That's the kit's best price to date.

Prefer not to shop at Amazon? Govee is selling this product direct for £63. There's a newer version of these lights, which farther extends the backlighting with Light Bars.

Typically £150, you can buy this one for £130 from Govee or for £140 from Amazon when you clip the on-page coupon.

If you intend to gift these to multiple people, Govee is additionally taking 5 percent off your purchase total when you buy two, 10 percent if you buy three, and 15 percent off if you buy five of them. Use the promo codes XMAS5, XMAS10,and XMAS15 depending on the amount you're purchasing. We found that both the 2020 model and this year's version offer great value for the money, even before the discounts.

If you missed out on a smart display deal during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you're in luck: Walmart is now offering a 60 percent off deal on the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 with a bundled Lenovo Smart Bulb, bringing the final sale price down to £25.

The Lenovo Smart Clock 2 incorporates a touchscreen display into a form factor that would be right at home on your bedside table. It's one of the smallest smart displays you can buy, yet it still offers full Google Assistant capabilities and comes with a handy night light feature. Read our review.

The latest AirPods sold out relatively quickly after receiving some of their first significant discounts during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Thankfully, however, Amazon still is selling the third-generation AirPods for £150 at checkout -- the lowest we saw them drop to during the recent shopping holiday.

That's a £30 discount on the latest AirPods model, which sport shorter stems, IPX4 water resistance, and improved sound over their last-gen counterpart. However, they lack active noise cancellation, which is found in the AirPods Pro. Read our full review.

If you don't mind buying refurbished, Sonos is discounting several products right now. For those interested in the Sonos Beam, the first generation is selling for £319 as opposed to £399, the full retail cost when purchased new.

Although the soundbar lacks support for Dolby Atmos like the second-gen model, we found it's still a competent smart speaker that shares many features in common with the newer version. Sonos is also discounting the third-gen Sonos Sub, selling it for £599 refurbished. That is £150 less than if you were to purchase the wireless subwoofer new.

The second-gen model, typically £699, is also selling for £549.

All of the products in this sale will arrive in a box with all original accessories and cables, and they've been certified directly from Sonos. That means the company has tested and given each an internal and external cleaning and inspection. They also come with a one-year warranty and a 45-day money-back guarantee.

If you missed out on a great TV deal during Black Friday, fret not, because Amazon still offering a significant discount on many sizes of one of the best TVs for gaming, the LG C1. The £1,500 55-inch is still selling for £1,297, while the £2,500 65-inch is going for £1,797.

Regardless of which configuration you choose, however, all sport several features gamers will love, including a 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision HDR compatibility, and support for HDMI 2.1. Best Buy is offering the same discounts on the 55- and 65-inch models.

Other great deals happening now
