…and it seems I’m not the only one.

Over Christmas there was over £800 million being spent on Christmas day alone. That’s a ridiculous amount of money and students spend a large portion of it!

I must admit I was too stuffed full of turkey and was one too many drinks down to be able to focus on the repetitive strain coming from the TV, let alone be savvy enough to search for bargains online… but I did make up for that the next day, online shopping, from the comfort of my own bed…

However, shopping online isn’t always all it’s cracked up to be … or at least until now.

Just because you like to shop with bare legs from the comfort of your duvet doesn’t mean your shopping experience has to be scantily clad with no frills too.


GIMMEA is new online shopping portal that has all the deals from all the best brands but has some cool ways to earn as you shop too… It’s a reward site, so every time you shop with one of the brands that you’d shop with anyway, you can now earn bonus points, which can be collected and exchanged for shopping vouchers…you can make your own lists or edits too, to recommend stuff to your friends or to create wish lists…and if anyone buys from these edits, you earn bonus points too…


So if you’re feeling like getting into you birthday suit and doing some retail therapy, make sure…

  1. Your camera is turned off!
  2. The door is locked and the curtains drawn
  3. The heating is on
  4. But most importantly, remember YOU should be the only naked thing, let GIMMEA add layers to your shopping outfit and allow us to allow you to earn as you spend.
