Desperate Deals

Reporter: Pippa Gardner

You don't need to be scrooge to get a bargain this Christmas.

You JUST need to know where to look.

Alyce Cowell is The Westfield Insider selected from tens of thousands of applicants for her specialist shopping knowledge .

Tonight she show's us her secrets to get getting bonus offers and free giveaways

"We've got lots of deals like buy one get one free, buy one get one 50% off buy something get a bonus gift" Said Alyce

Harvey Norman has some of the best deals.

"This is one of my favourite deals I am going to get it for my Dad and my brother so this one for my Dad it's an internet and digital radio worth $248 and this one is an ipod dock and radio, perfect for my brother worth $179 absolutely FREE" Said Alyce

They also have a buy one get one free deal on Sony Ipod docks.

Pay $169 for this one. And you'll get a portable dock worth ninety nine dollars for nothing.

Not to be outdone.

At Dick Smith, with every Playstation 3 they'll throw in two games, dual shock controller and HDMI cable VALUED at one hundred and ninety nine dollars

And just for Today Tonight viewers - when you spend $899 or more on any laptop, computer or TV you'll get a $150 gift card.

"you can use that $150 to buy a whole lot of accessories to complete your purchase or give it out as a bit of a present" Said Amando Pedruco

You can snap a bargain at Target too.

Buy this Canon SLR camera for $529 and they'll GIVE you another camera valued at $89 dollars.

If you need stocking fillers for the kids - Target also has a buy two get the third free offer on its Disney DVD range.

If you want to leave your Christmas pictures to the professionals.

A freebie's a sure bet if you're buying cosmetics or fragrances.

At Jurlique:

"spend $95 on anything in the store and get this gorgeous travel pouch plus luxury trial size sample - spend $150 and not only do you get these items but you also get a tote bag and voucher for a facial" Said Alyce

Priceline's throwing in gifts...

When you purchase Aura by Swarovski, Any Britney Speers Fragrance And with any Invisible Zinc purchase Myer can match that:

Buy any Taylor Swift Fragrance and get a free bag.. DKNY fragrance and they'll throw in a towel.

 

Ingrid Just from Choice says the deals and offers are definitely value for money.

But don't get sucked into buying things you don't need or want - just because you're getting something for free.

"If you can actually use that extra item that gets thrown into the purchase then that might work for you but no, if it's meaning that you're not necessarily shopping around and getting the best bargain then you may end up spending extra money that you don't need to spend" Said Ingrid Just

And don't forget post Christmas, retailers desperate for your shopping dollar, might have even better deals on offer.
