Your Money – with Peter Jones

TV’s famous Dragon whores out his name to badly-written Sky Magazine column every month

We’ve had a fabulous holiday in the Maldives, but it’s always great to get back home again. I’ve had a great week playing tennis on our courts at home with my friends and family. It’s been an amazing summer and now I’m energized and raring to go! Holidays are fantastic, especially when you have plenty of money to spend, like I do.

Recycling and saving money are two concepts I fully endorse in this column regularly and I’ve recently got my ghost writer to find an incredible website where you can get rid of unwanted jewellery and make money. Check out cash4gold.com – it’s a fast, simple and convenient new service that converts your old jewellery items into cash. All you have to do is fill in the online form and wait for their pre-paid envelope to arrive in the post, then send off your surplus valuables and you’ll receive the cash value of those items in the post the next working day. It’s fantastic, and the best thing is you don’t pay any other costs because the factory is on site, thereby cutting out the middleman and leaving more £££s for your pocket.

You are all probably aware of the digital switchover happening across the country. A great way to combat this is to get Sky Multiroom – it’s great viewing for all the family and fantastic value for money, so upgrade your package now.

Another thing you will need to do is buy a digital television, as you don’t want to be left looking at static after the switchover! We have HD sets all over our house and the picture quality is amazing. One thing I would advise when buying a new television is to shop around. An office junior has compiled this list of leading LCD TVs which should save you £££s:

LG 47LH5000 – Kelkoo – prices start from £961.00

Sony KDL-32E5520 – Kelkoo – prices from £945.00

Samsung LE-40A856 – Kelkoo – prices from £950.00

Sony KDF-E50A11E – Kelkoo – prices from £969.00

Panasonic TX-37LZD85 – Kelkoo – prices from £932.00

The above units are fantastic value for money and I think you’ll struggle to find prices as good as these elsewhere. They all come with the manufacturer’s guarantee and a full 3 year warranty.

The recession, combined with the digital switchover is understandably likely to raise financial concerns in many households across Britain. It’s a struggle for many families to find the spare money to buy essential items, especially in times like these. Luckily there are companies out there that are willing to help people in difficult situations with their finances. I recommend Picture Loans or Ocean Finance – both are reputable companies who have been in business for a long time. Their repayment rates are good (from their point of view) and you can apply for money even if you have a bad credit rating or CCJs. If you are a homeowner you could borrow up to £25,000 over the phone straight away, and the best thing is that both of these organisations allow you to consolidate existing debts into one affordable monthly repayment, leaving you free to concentrate on the important things in life like watching high definition television with the whole family. It’s definitely worth a try.

Well, that’s me done for this month! Phew! It’s time for me to get back to cracking the whip at the numerous businesses in my portfolio. I love business, as it’s exhilarating and a constant day-to-day challenge. I thoroughly recommend it!

Until next month…

Peter.
