Save on supermarket gift cards
I’m a 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.
Watch out though for some recent changes such as transaction fees of 1%, or delivery charges for physical cards of £2 – often making the savings pointless. Still I’ve saved a lot in the past with the app and there are often decent discounts.
PLUS if you’ve not used Zeek before, the code CLEVERCASH will give you a free £5 to spend! There’s a minimum spend of £45.
70cl Absolute vodka deal stack
A bottle of Absolute vodka, which comes in various flavours, normally sells at £20. But it’s possible to get it as low as £11.50, which I’ve just done, picking up a bottle of the vanilla flavour.
First you can get it for £15 at Morrisons, Asda, Tesco or Sainsbury’s in a current promotion.
You can then get £2 back with the cashback app CheckoutSmart when you snap your receipt. You can claim this back on 10 purchases of each flavour – though that’s a lot of vodka! This brings it down to £13 a bottle.
Finally, for this last stage, you need an America Express credit card. If you do, check your offer and see if you have a 10% back at Morrisons deal. If you do, and if you have a Morrisons near you, that’s another £1.50 off the price, bringing it down to £11.50!
Free bar of Lindt choc or pack of Nutella for new users
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 been a snack jar of Nutella for a while now, though it’s usually a bar of Lindt chocolate, though has at times been a box of cornettos. It should say when you download the app.
Use the code z8pe2 to activate the offer.
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.
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 Approved 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.
