(3/8)

Consumer affairs expert Martin Lewis continues a new run of the show that offers viewers essential money-saving advice. In this instalment, Martin demonstrates how to transfer debts and pay less interest on credit card accounts. And one canny saver reveals how she recovered £3,000 in insurance payments.

Martin is joined on the show by Five News correspondent Ruth Liptrot, who goes out onto the streets of Britain to meet ordinary people who have taken money-saving to the extreme. As well as covering big campaign stories, the series explains how to become a savvy consumer, with advice on reclaiming cash and cutting bills.

It Pays to Watch continues to show viewers how to make the most of their savings, get cheap weekend breaks, successfully tackle credit-card debt and dodge big fares on the rail network. The popular Money Saving News slot also makes a welcome return, as Martin tracks down the latest hot deals, offers, loopholes and freebies.

In this week’s programme, Martin uses his cunning to show how consumers’ existing credit cards can be used to transfer debt and pay less interest on the account.

Plus, Martin meets a woman who has recouped nearly £3,000 by claiming back unnecessary Personal Protection Insurance payments – and can now afford a new bathroom.
