Sell Gold With Tesco Gold Exchange

Posted on August 26th, 2011 in Making Money by Stephanie

Sell Gold With Tesco Gold Exchange

Even though times are tough at the moment in the economy, the price of gold has been soaring and has been reaching record highs. So if you have some unwanted jewellery lying around, now really is the time to sell it!

There are so many cash for gold companies around on the internet as well as high street shops that will buy your unwanted gold so where do you start?? Having a browse on the internet last weekend I discovered that Tesco also has its own gold exchange website and pays substantially higher than other gold brokers. Tesco is a brand that we all know and trust (definitely is my no.1 choice for groceries!) so I was happy to trade in an unwanted necklace that had been sitting in my drawer for the past 10 years for £130 PLUS 130 Tesco clubcard points! Tesco gives 1 point for every £1 in value so it’s a great way to rack up some extra points to save up for that clubcard reward.

Selling gold on the Tesco gold exchange website is really easy, you just have to fill in your details on their website so that they can send you a pack for you to send your gold to them in. Then once you post the gold to them, Tesco will contact you with an offer price and bank the money into your bank account if you accept it. Tesco is currently offering £10.75 per 9 carat gram of gold compared to £7.81 per gram earlier this year so now could be a good time to sell or you could try waiting for a little while to see if the price rises even more. Tesco will buy all sorts of gold jewellery whether broken or old so start routing around for those odd gold earrings or broken watches!

Hummingbird Bakery London Portabello Road

Hummingbird Bakery Portobello Road London

If you happen to be around the Notting Hill area in London then you simply must stop by the Hummingbird Bakery on Portabello Road. Over the years the Hummingbird Bakery has become London’s most famous cake shop stocking fresh hand baked cupcakes, cakes, pies and brownies. At any time on any day there always seems to be a queue of people waiting to pick up their Hummingbird Bakery cake fix. The branch on Portabello Road is their flagship branch and there are also branches in Soho (Wardour Street), South Kensington (Old Brompton Road) and Spitalfields (Frying Pan Alley).

Hummingbird Bakery London

The Hummingbird Bakery first opened in London in 2004. They wanted to provide Londoners with an alternative to supermarket cakes and French patisseries, a place where you could buy real cupcakes, fluffy with buttercream icing, moist layer cakes or genuine American pies. The mouthwatering display of cakes in their shops leaves you wanting to buy out the whole shop but if you have to choose one, go for Hummingbird bakery’s most popular cake, the Red Velvet cupcake. This cupcake has a fresh home-baked taste with a hint of cocoa and vanilla and an extremely addictive cream cheese frosting.

If there isn’t a Hummingbird bakery near you then they have a recipe book which has detailed recipes for all their cakes and creations so that you can make your own at home! The recipe book is available on Amazon here. Alternatively if you live abroad you can get the book from The Book Depository here which gives free international delivery!
