COMMUNICATIONS provider Plusnet has launched a new campaign celebrating Mancunians' nose for good value, as new research shows residents bag an average of nearly 10 bargains a month.

Mancunians often grab a bargain - with 43% saying that they have used a voucher code and 36% saying they would always tip off family and friends about a great deal.

As part of the campaign, Plusnet has teamed up with Bury-born Coronation Street star Antony Cotton, who has shared his "That'll Do" moments.

Yorkshire-based Plusnet’s campaign ‘That’ll Do’ is based on the local expression for when something exceeds expectations - albeit in a typically understated way.

Despite being one of Britain’s most recognised TV stars - playing Sean Tulley in Coronation Street for 17 years - he admits he still loves the thrill of a good value deal and he even has a dedicated ‘bargain room’ in his Lancashire home.

Antony, and his mum Enid get together in a hilarious Gogglebox-style video, to share their best stories of bagging deals and getting great value.

Antony and Enid poke fun at each other as they share their own ‘That’ll Do’ moments…from spectacular hotel upgrades and making their own clothes, to double-yolk eggs and getting extra gravy.

The survey also reveals how Manchester residents are great at negotiating their deals, with 21% admitting they’ve received a freebie by haggling with a customer service agent over the phone. Surprisingly, just 25% rated themselves as always good at getting a good deal.

Antony Cotton said:“I get the thrill of a deal from Enid – she’s the absolute queen of getting bang for your buck and has taught me everything I know. We loved sharing those moments where you get more than you bargain for and joining Plusnet in championing great value.

“Anyone watching the video will see how much Enid and I bond over bargains – and that she’s not afraid of putting me back in my place! She particularly loves the bargain room in my house, which is filled with bulk purchases.”

Sam Calvert, Marketing Director, at Plusnet, said: “As our research shows, it’s not just people in Yorkshire who love great value deals and those moments where you get more than you expect is always worth celebrating, no matter how elaborate or muted.

“People in Yorkshire epitomise the spirit of great value but in a typically understated way. Often they’ll say ‘that’ll do’ when they really mean is ‘that’ll more than do’. At Plusnet we believe value for money is simple, reliable broadband without the bells and whistles but with great customer service and at a fair price. That’ll do.”
