Confused.com launches 'Swap Store' film starring Keith Chegwin

Fri, 10 Feb 2012 05:23:38 EST

Confused.com, one of the UK's biggest and most popular price comparison services, has revealed a short online film featuring former 'Swap Shop' host Keith Chegwin that it hopes will bring back the spirit of the nostalgic TV show, and get Britons swapping.

Swapping has proved to be a popular activity since the economic downturn kicked in, and 52% of Londoners said in a recent survey that they are more likely to swap unwanted possessions now than they were in the past.

The video has been produced to raise awareness of this, and also to help highlight Confused.com's Nectar points promotion, whereby they are giving away 1,000 Nectar points every time a user buys a car insurance policy through their site before the end of March 2012.

It was filmed in London's Victoria train station between 1pm and 3pm on Wednesday 25 January, and its filming created a buzz of activity, as people brought all their unwanted items to exchange for something more useful. A wide range of items were brought, and the 'Swap Store' event had people swapping items like a scented candle, yoga DVD, alarm clock and even a naked picture of Keith Chegwin for things like 1,000 Nectar points; a blow up palm tree and parrot; a trombone and even an electric car.

Gareth Kloet, head of car insurance at Confused.com said: "The economic downturn has made us all more careful about what we spend and become savvier. We wanted 'Swap Store' to be an enjoyable event aimed at encouraging people to swap unwanted items and also to highlight that Confused.com are giving away 1,000 Nectar Points to every customer that buys car insurance through the site. Car insurance is a necessity so at Confused.com we want to give our customers a great deal on their insurance and a little extra at the same time."
