This is the first of a series of weekly posts that scour the vast expanse of the coupon and voucher code universe to bring you only the best of the best. Each week we'll be rounding up and sharing the top active codes with a justification of why they've made it onto the list.
These "Wicked Wednesday Weekly" roundups are intended as much for the hardcore bargain hunter as they are for the average Joe online shopper. My goal is to hopefully save you a lot of time as well as money by using our collective coupon experience on Buckscoop to shortcut your journey to finding the biggest discounts and best value offers online.
Woolworths – 20% Off Meat On Orders Over $50
First up this week is Woolies who are running a voucher that gives you 20% off meat when ordering online and spending over $50. Meat is a staple grocery for many, and one which isn't particularly cheap. So getting a discount at the meat counter is sure to have a wide appeal for most supermarket shoppers.
However, what makes this a standout voucher is the fact that meat is rarely discounted across the board like this by Woolies, or other supermarkets for that matter. Usually offers only apply to specific cuts / types of meat, or particular pre-packed items. The only exclusion with this voucher are deli items and you'll have until 31st January 2015 to use it. Good time to take advantage of this with Australia Day fast approaching too.

Booktopia - Free Shipping Promo Code
We haven't see a free shipping code from Booktopia in about two months, so now's the time to stock up on books if you're in need of some new reading material. The beauty of these codes is that you effectively wave goodbye to the usual $6.95 in delivery costs, leaving you with plenty of opportunities to pick up a bargain on titles from their extensive lists online. It's usually very easy to find numerous popular titles for just a few dollars when using this code, that can often cost upward of $15-$20 at other bookstores.
One such example mentioned in this deal is "Destiny Rising", the 3rd book in The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters series (by L.J. Smith), which has been reduced to just $1.95. This same paperback sells for between $12 and $20 at stores like The Book Depository, Angus & Robertson and QBD.

Skincare Store – 20% off Sitewide Promo Code
The discount percentage here is fairly average from Skincare Store, as they usually have promo codes ranging from 15% to 40% off. But, what makes this code of particular interest is that it can be used on any item sitewide and it doesn't have any minimum spend threshold to contend with either. You should be aware that when Skincare Store usually issues codes offering discounts of 20% or above, there tends to be either a minimum order size attached (often at least $100) or the code is restricted to specific categories or brands of products only.
Another reason to use this code is that it's valid on sale items too. Thus, a good place I'd recommend to start looking for a bargain is in their current Big Beauty Sale with products being reduced by up to 75% off.
Free Shipping Threshold: Over $49

Dissh – Extra 30% off Sale Items Promo Code
Dissh most commonly have discount promo codes ranging between 15% - 25% and it's less frequently that they treat us to a 30% discount code. Even when they do, however, its usually off full priced items and/or specific clothing categories.
So the fact that you can now take an extra 30% off sale items definitely makes this code one to sit up and take notice off. Buckscoop's also done some of the leg work for you in terms of uncovering a couple of the best bargains on offer, specifically on dresses, which you can see here. For example, Dissh's Summer Skies dress by Paint It Red is available for $19 with shipping once you apply their 30% off code. Comparatively, the exact same dress is selling for $47.99 at SurfStitch and $49.92 at The Iconic, while over at Princess Polly and Myer you'd be looking at paying between $60 and $70 with delivery.
The promo code is available sitewide and is not restricted to any particular items.

Deals Direct - $5 off $20 Minimum Spend Coupon
Last but not least is Deals Direct, who regularly release coupons that offer 20% off in the form of $5 off coupons on orders of $20 or above. The reason I chose to include this one today though, is because there has been a bit of a dry spell of any meaningful deals from DD in recent months. Although it would seem as if that drought is now over.
Yesterday a deal was posted on Buckscoop which cherry-picked a number of great value buys currently on offer from their website. Most are for higher value items, but if you find something you need for around the $20 mark, then this $5 coupon effectively gives you 25% off. Every little bit helps right. Otherwise, stick with the suggested products from the afore mentioned deal and you'll be sure to get great value for money.
