Britons cut back on food spending but not cosmetic surgery

Woman with chequebookAdults in the UK are in love with the discount voucher yet according to new research, one thing they're still happy to pay full price for in these frugal times is cosmetic surgery treatments. A poll by money-saving and voucher website Savoo.co.uk, found that, when it comes to purchases considered to be luxuries, 88 per cent of 25 to 34-year-olds will only buy them if they can get money off by using a discount voucher. But their attitude is reversed when it comes to cosmetic surgery treatments: "Only three per cent of respondents would use a discount for a form of plastic surgery - nose jobs, breast augmentation and liposuction - showing that we are not willing to take a chance with our looks," said Savoo.Food is the most common purchase using a discount voucher, with eight out of 10 people saying they use them to cut the size of their regular outgoings and nearly all of these people not being ashamed to do so.
