Save on supermarket gift cards
I’m a huge fan of Zeek, a website where you can buy and sell unwanted gift vouchers and cards. If you’re a buyer, there’s always a discount, and I rarely do food shopping now without using one.
You can almost always get:
- Tesco (physical card)
- Sainsbury’s (physical card)
- Morrisons (physical card)
- Iceland (physical card)
- Marks & Spencers (e-card, then use it to buy a physical card from M&S website or paper vouchers)
Discounts are usually around the 3% to 4% range, though sometimes higher. M&S paper vouchers for example are often up to 15% off. Stock varies, but it’s worth taking a look.
PLUS if you’ve not used Zeek before, the code CLEVERCASH will give you a free £3 to spend! There’s a minimum spend of £30.
25% off wine at Tesco
Until Monday 18th September 2017 you can save 25% when you buy six or more bottles of wine or fizz.
You can combine this with other wine discounts too. I stocked up last weekend, with Brancott Estate Pinot Noir already down by £2 to £7.65. With the 25% off it worked out as £5.73 a bottle – saving 41%!
Take advantage of new customer deals at the supermarket
I’ve compared the services at all the major online supermarkets so you know things like the minimum order, delivery charges and whether you can get a refund on carrier bags. Plus, for each one I’ve listed the latest new customer offers. You can make some really big savings, so it’s worth trying them all out.
Big half price sales at Waitrose and Ocado
This offer runs a couple of times each year and it’s a really good way to save. 100s of items are discounted at each, including wine, yoghurts, dishwasher tablets, coffee – you name it.
It ends at Waitrose on 3rd October and I expect a similar date for Ocado.
£2 off Ben & Jerry’s ‘Wich
When I lived opposite a Blockbuster Video (going back a bit here), I got slightly addicted to the Ben & Jerry cookie sandwiches on sale there and nowhere else. Then Ben & Jerry’s stopped making them!! Disaster.
However last summer they relaunched them and you can grab £2 off a pack just by registering your details on the Ben & Jerry’s website. These are good. I promise.
Waitrose Pick Your Own deals
You can save 20% on selected products by registering for a My Waitrose card. It can be hit and miss, plus I’ve often found the most popular items are never in stock (frozen prawns I’m looking at you). Still, if you shop at Waitrose it’s well worth signing up, and the discount is applied before any multi-buy special offers.
There’s also an app where you can change your picks when you’re in the shop.
Free pack of Cornettos
You can often save a little extra on your groceries using supermarket cashback apps (read my review). One – Shopmium – offers a freebie to get you started. It’s usually a bar of Lindt chocolate, but it’s currently a pack of cornettos.
Use the code KHMYEEFW to activate the offer.
Deals to save at M&S food
I’ve written a separate article on all the ways you can cut the cost of food at Marks & Spencer.
Cheap out of date / close to expiry bargains from Approve Food
It’s worth checking out Approved Food’s website to see if there’s anything that takes your fancy. It sells safe to eat food that’s either just out of date or part of a warehouse clearance. When I tried it I managed to buy things that had years left before they expired.
