Seven great DIY savings for the Bank Holiday

We know how to enjoy a good bank holiday. We start with complaining about the weather, then we move onto some heavy DIY, and we close with a BBQ - usually in the rain. We're powerless to change the immutable course of events over the long weekend, but there's one thing we can do to improve things immeasurably: we can make sure everything we spend on DIY is a discount or a bargain.

We reveal seven great DIY discounts for the Bank Holiday.

1. Wickes
For the Bank Holiday, Wickes is offering a number of garden deals - including BOGOF on landscaping products - like decking and woodcare. If you're after an even better deal, it is offering 2.1% cashback on all purchases when shopping through or 2% through Quidco.

2. Robert Dyas
You can save 15% on everything in Robert Dyas this weekend - plus there are special deals offering up to a third off painting and decorating and DIY essentials. If that's not enough of a saving, you can add in 8.8% cashback through (ends Sunday), or 5% through Quidco.

3. B&Q
The store itself is offering a few selected deals, but even if you're not planning on buying any of those, you can get 3.3% cashback on all your DIY products from B&Q when shopping via and 3% when shopping through Quidco.

4. Screw fix
There are four days of Bank Holiday deals on offer - including paint and fence treatment. If you have a big project on your hands, when you spend over £500, you can get 3.3% cashback through (assuming you order online) or 3% through Quidco.

5. Homebase
Homebase isn't offering a specific Bank Holiday sale, but if you use a cashback site, you can still save some money. If you reserve and collect at Homebase for this Bank Holiday weekend you can earn 2.2% cashback through or 2.5% through Quidco.

6. Argos
There's a Big Red Event running over the Bank Holiday, plus up to a third off selected tools and half price on Bosch tools. You can also take advantage of the deal offering a free £10 voucher when you spend over £100, or a free £5 voucher when you spend over £50. Again you can add to the savings with cashback. Topcashback has a number of deals running over the weekend, including 9.9% cashback on paint, 8.8% on pressure washers and 8.8% on garden power tools.

7. Everywhere
And is that isn't enough to tempt you, Topcashback is offering a site wide bonus for the weekend - where you can get up to 10% more cashback from every retailer. If you're a Plus member you'll get the full 10% top up and if you're a Classic member you'll get 5%.

That's the DIY bargains sorted. Now all you have to worry about is the BBQ - and the rain.
