Win £60 of Amazon Vouchers! (And find out which sort of shopper you are too . . . )

Ho ho ho, Skint pals!

In the spirit of Xmas giving I’ve got a lovely competition for you today – the chance to win £60 of Amazon vouchers, just in time to blitz your Christmas shopping. And not just that – there’s a fun little quiz too, which might reveal why you behave the way you do when it comes to Christmas shopping. win amazon vouchers

The folks at Barclaycard asked me to take a quiz they’ve developed, together with researchers at Brunel University, to identify which type of shopping ‘tribe’ I fall into. They’ve identified four key shopping tribes – and apparently we all fall into one of them. They are : the Screen Saver, the Profit Prophet, the High Street Pounder and the Bargain Hunter Gatherer. So, after surrendering to this very scientific experiment I can confirm that I am apparently . . .  wait for it . . .  a Screen Saver.

Unsurprising maybe, given that the chief characterisitics of this tribe are sitting at a screen a lot, doing stuff online and preferring to Christmas shop from the sofa whilst drinking tea and eating chocolate. Yep, that would be about right then. Fancy finding out which is your tribe, Skint pals? Here’s the link here. The quiz takes 60 seconds, (actually, it took me even less than that), and will give you the chance to net you £60 worth of vouchers – not a bad exchange for a minute’s work fun.

Here’s how to enter: take the quiz, then tell me which tribe you belong to by posting a comment. And, if you don’t already, to enter please also susbcribe to Skint in the City please sign up using the box on the right, simply filling in your name and email. You will then automatically be entered into the competition to win the Amazon vouchers  – but hurry folks, the competition closes at midnight, Friday, December 6, folks!

Best of luck Skint pals. £60 of vouchers and some personality insights too – what’s not to love? Can’t wait to learn which tribes you all belong to ! The winner will be revealed on Satuday, December 7.

Remeber to leave your comment and to subscribe!
