    Watch out with Endesa’s latest promo! A quick glance at the email going out appears to show a prize of 100 years of free electricity, however it’s actually 100 prizes of 1 year’s free electricity and, in reality, it’s not even that as they give the winners 700€ (based on Endesa’s calculation of an average year’s consumption) and these 700€ are subject to tax.

     

    In Spain you can now download an app that makes you, rather than costs you, money: LatteScreen shows ads when you lock your screen so you get paid for unlocking your phone (available for Android only).

     

    AVE long distance trains lowered prices this year and sales have increased by 21%, see our article on how to save on rail travel in Spain.

     

    If you have kids at school in Spain, soon they’ll be bringing home a list of the textbooks they need for September. Don’t rush to order them, as by comparing in different stores and your local bookshop you could easily save money.
