- Free Lindt choc bar

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 transcation 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 £3 to spend! There’s a minimum spend of £23.
Wine deals for Christmas
If you’re still to stock up on wine for Christmas (and beyond), then a few supermarkets have some decent deals. With any wine you buy, it’s worth having a look at the MySupermarket app to see what the average selling price is.
Asda – six wines for £25
Waitrose “One day only” Christmas offers
Waitrose is announcing special festive offers each week, running Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This week there are deals on party food and desserts. New offers will be announced each Wednesday, but it’s worth checking out.
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 bar of Lindt choc
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.
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.
