Do Black Friday the right way

With one of the biggest days of the year for shoppers and deal-hunters around the corner, you may be already preparing for what deals you can bag yourself for Christmas presents or a self-care treat.

As it’s been an especially daunting year for homeowners with interest rates rising the excitement of Black Friday and Christmas Shopping may be overshadowed by the stress of rising prices.

The cost of living crisis has brought down the planned spending from £3.9 billion in 2022 to an estimated £3 billion this year. The average spend is estimated to be £113, which is 40% less than the planned £190 in 2022. High inflationary pressures have forced us to tighten our purse strings and spend less in sales, as we are more mindful of paying for essentials.

However, with our Shop with Sprive, everyone can put that little bit of extra cash towards their mortgage, through everyday shopping, Black Friday spending is a perfect time to make the most of this feature so you can splurge guilt-free.

You’ll be amazed by the impact this extra cash can have! By doing your weekly food shopping with the Sprive app, you can save £8,473 in interest and shed 9 months off your mortgage (Based on an average £250k mortgage at 5.5% interest and an average grocery shop of £500 a month).

Sprive customer, Jamies Davies who uses the feature religiously has - “managed to overpay over £100 per month entirely through cashback on vouchers. I tell everyone I know about Sprive!”
