Have you heard about Tesco’s Aldi Price Match? It means that Tesco has matched the prices on hundreds of Tesco and branded products against prices in Aldi. Look out for the ‘Aldi Price Match’ bubble in-store or fill your basket online.
Tesco initially committed to price match Aldi on hundreds of items back in March at the start of lockdown, but many shoppers are still unaware of the scheme.
It’s not just available online either, as shoppers can spot price-matched labels in store, according to the Tesco website.
What products does Tesco match?
They match against comparable products at Aldi or we match identical branded products at Aldi
What prices do they check?
Tesco checks prices in Aldi stores and/or online twice weekly. The stores they check are located in England, Wales and Scotland. Aldi …
Marks & Spencer is relaunching its Sparks loyalty scheme next week, meaning that card holders can continue to donate to charity, while one lucky person per store will get a free shop.
The fabulous grocer (love getting special food from there) will offer instant rewards during shopping, such as bags of Percy Pigs or Apothecary Candles, with at least one customer per store a week gifted a free shop at the checkout.
The Sparks scheme, which was first launched back in 2015, differs to other supermarkets’ loyalty schemes in that shoppers collect points to get advance access to sales and invites to events, rather than vouchers or discounts offered by Tesco’s Clubcard scheme or Sainsbury’s Nectar card.
When the new scheme is launched, customers with existing points will lose their points in exchange for …
Aldi is teaming up with Deliveroo to offer grocery home deliveries as the coronavirus crisis increases demand for online shopping.
The discount supermarket chain began making deliveries from its Daleside Road store in Nottingham on Monday and plans to extend the service to seven stores across the East Midlands next month.
The Deliveroo tie-up comes after Aldi launched a £24.99 grocery parcel delivery service recently. The food parcels contain 22 set essential products including rice, pasta, tea and toilet roll and are delivered directly from Aldi’s warehouse.
The supermarket will initially offer a range of 150 essential items such as bread, milk and fresh produce, which can be ordered via the Deliveroo app for delivery in as little as 30 minutes. The minimum order is £15 and delivery costs £4.99.
Aldi’s expansion into grocery delivery …
On Monday night, Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered the closure of all non-essential stores as he plunged the UK into a lockdown to ease the burden on the NHS.
Corner shops, pharmacies, supermarkets, hardware stores, banks, petrol stations and bike shops can stay open during the pandemic.
Pubs, bars and restaurants had already been told to shut their doors in an effort to prevent the spread on people mixing closely in public. Places of worship are closed, apart from for funerals, as must libraries, museums, galleries and bingo halls.
Takeaway and delivery services may remain open and operational, and online retail is still open and encouraged and postal and delivery service will run as normal, but Next shut down its online operations last night, so who knows who will also do the same.
So here’s …
Online shopping will probably increase as more of us need to self-isolate, so I thought I would do a round up here of what is going on, from supermarket chain Morrisons announcing that it is to create 3,500 new jobs to expand its home delivery service amid the coronavirus pandemic to Ocado shutting down its entire website until 21 March to work out how it can offer more slots.
I have used copy from the grocers’ websites and news we find. If you have any updates, please put in comments and I will try to update daily.
If you click on the link to the shop’s name, you will reach their current page updating on deliveries. I have added a few alternatives to get food too online at the bottom of this list. Stay safe …
While I don’t want to spread panic, if you have to self-isolate or quarantine if you have symptoms or the full blow coronavirus, you may want to prepare so when you do your normal shop maybe add these items, if you haven’t done so already.
If you are self-isolating ask your friends and neighbours to do your shopping. Try to book an online delivery slot now as they are booking weeks ahead, or even consider using services like milkmen. We use Morefresh.co.uk and they will deliver the basics, milk, bread and eggs. Other similar services will deliver fruit and veg and even toilet rolls.
But please don’t hoard and overbuy, the supermarkets say if we buy normally there’s enough for us all, and there are other people out there who need that toilet paper or …
Primark is not officially selling at Amazon, someone is reselling their products at higher prices there
So some smartie pants has bought up a load of Primark stock and is now listing it on Amazon, so you can now shop online for Primark products and even get next day delivery.
Primark isn’t selling via its own site yet, but now simply go to Amazon.co.uk and type in “Primark” to access a host of the store’s products, from their latest fashion offerings to sell-out Harry Potter items.Many of the items are available on Amazon Prime’s next day delivery service, so you won’t have to wait long to get hold of your shopping if you have the service.
Fans can get hold of Primark’s extensive Disney-themed collections, workout clothes, shoes and PJ ranges; Christmas baubles, and beauty products are available as well.While the ability to shop online for Primark products is…
Time to see how the online supermarket shopping world has changed. I looked at Waitrose, Ocado, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda. I know that Iceland delivers, but I find that their range is limited, so I am not including them.
I evaluated the supermarkets on the following and in each category, the top supermarket comes in at position 1. Of course, one position 1 doesn’t mean everything is fantastic, so my top supermarket is the one that has the highest number of 1s and 2s, and this time we have joint winners: Ocado and Tesco, but remember if you want quality food, go to Waitrose, but be ready to pay more… it’s really up to you, but I hope that my research will help you.
Categories evaluated on were …
I recently started to use a couple of receipt apps to make a little extra money.
My friend is already using Shoppix, so I have downloaded that and also Receipt Hog. Basically, you upload your shopping receipts and they give you points for them which you can cash in for vouchers. Here’s some info about both. I earned £10 in less than three months with Shoppix and started Receipt Hog a little later, so reckon it will be a little slower with them as they don’t accept as many retailers and don’t give as many bonus tokens as Shoppix.
Shoppix is an app that pays you for your receipts. Simply take a picture of your receipt with the in-app Shoppix camera and get tokens.
You can cash out once you’ve reached £5. Receipts …
The world’s biggest Primark store is definitely worth a visit. We went in the first few days and it was packed, apart from the men’s department, so if you need some space, head down there.
The 160,000 square foot mega store spread over five floors opened its doors on 11 April 2019. It’s huge, fun and cheap.
I was really impressed by the Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and Disney sections….they even have a Primark Cafe with Disney.
Primark began as a single store in Dublin in June 1969 and you can’t find one in every town.
There’s even a beauty studio called Duck & Dry where shoppers can have their make-up and nails done, their eyelashes extended and their eyebrows plucked – Primark beauty price list below.
There are even a personal shopping service, …
