Cash-strapped Brits, who could be reluctant to incur credit card charges or make loan claims, are increasingly hunting for bargains and buying goods from cut-price stores.This is according to Quidco head of public relations Jo Roberts, who said alterations to consumer behaviours will be one of the "lasting consequences of the recession".Shoppers are willing to look around for the best value rather than purchase items at the first price presented to them, she declared.Members of the public are willing to invest time in saving money, with the average visitor to Quidco spending 25 minutes on the website every week, the representative added.All socio-economic groups are willing to use the portal to find goods at the best value, she remarked.People looking for cheap goods may also visit Poundland, which recently revealed it is allowing people to use American Express cards in its stores, despite the fact these are generally used by wealthier shoppers.Samantha Clarke Samantha is a former banking assistant and has over ten years experience in retail banking.
