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 …
I have one of these Fitbits and use it to track my fitness. It was a gift and it cost over £70 so I had to share this fantastic offer from Tesco for a Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity and Sleep tracking wristband for £55. This is part of the Tesco’s Big Bank Holiday which ends on Tuesday.
I use a special app that is linked to the Fitbit and can see how many steps I have taken, distance travelled, how well I sleep and more.
I aim to do 10,000 steps per day and can see my progress. It has a light bar which shows four lights when I am at my target and it buzzes when I have reached my target – yay. The Fitbit is waterproof so I wear it when swimming and …
Wouldn’t it be nice if kids only needed one pack of shirts per year? But no we have to have long sleeved and short sleeved and then they grow!
Anyway, I needed some short sleeved boys white school shirts, sized 13-14 or 13. They are not cheap! I looked at M&S – £6 – £12 for two, John Lewis – £8 – £14 for two, then Asda had no stock, neither did BHS, so I turned to Tesco. As I need six, I don’t really want to spend over £30 for school shirts. Now I have bought uniform from Tesco before and not been back in a few years. Quality didn’t cut it. I tended to buy uniform from Sainsburys, but they don’t sell it online.
But this time Tesco saved me and I …
You know that feeling of dread when you walk up to a makeup counter in a department store or even Boots, and accept that you will be sold at. It’s like when you have walked up to Clinique or Estee Lauder counter and you will be told the virtues of only their products, whether they are just right for you or not.
So imagine my delight when I asked London Beauty Queen on Twitter about some beauty product advice. She told me to head over to Tesco for free 20 minute online beauty consultation with her. Well I did just that.
I booked a free online beauty consultation with a top beauty blogger and then because I got so much out of it, I had another one! During the consultations the experts do not try …
Today I went for my free eye test and Tesco and overall it was a good experience as it didn’t cost me anything and I didn’t feel under any pressure to make a decision there and then.
I turned up and must admit it wasn’t a warm welcome. I was pointed to a section and the guy didn’t even bother to talk to me, so I asked him what was going on and he explained that he was looking for my appointment.
They took my trolley which was great and a guy took me to a room to do the pre-test test which is where they blew air into my eyes. At no time did I see them wipe the bit where I rested my chin, though I saw wipes in the opticians room. …

Watched dispatches Supermarket Wars tonight. It was interesting to see how the Big Four supermarket sales are stagnating or decreasing while they are growing by 23% for Lidl and 39% at Aldi.
While the discount stores aren’t pretty, one of the reasons they can keep their prices low is that they don’t offer the variety as do larger supermarkets.
On average supermarkets stock 30,000 different products while discounters stock 1,000+ items. So less products, mean less storage, people needed and costs.
One lady said she would have spent £100 at Sainsbury’s but instead she got her shop for £53.
However, the discounters are not only for the cash strapped, but are also offering a small range of “posh nosh” which helps to change middle-class consumers’ perceptions. I wrote last week about the riding gear special …
Which grocers has the handiest Click & Collect service? I did some investigating and here’s what I found.
I’m very busy and out a lot this week, but am hosting a party so need to pick up food. While, I am excited to think that soon we’ll be able to pick up lots of items from a corner shop, or a nearby locker rather than having to schlep to a supermarket, I’ve investigated which grocer would accommodate me the best this week with its Click and Collect service….. here are the findings of my comparison:
Asda, Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s* all offer free click and collect services.
Charges can apply for tube station pick ups though, for example, £1.50 for Asda.
* Sainsbury’s does not offer Click and Collect for groceries :-(.
Tesco already offers the cheapest online grocery delivery slots at £1 and Click & Collect is free.
Now the largest UK supermarket has made some changes to make their delivery saver even cheaper. They have reduced their midweek Delivery Saver to just £3 a month.
Annoyingly for us, they’ve brought in a minimum order value of £25. You can still order items that total less than £25, but now you have to pay a £4 surcharge.
Tesco has also introduced a new Delivery Saver Guarantee – a promise from the supermarket that you’ll never be out of pocket. Basically, when your plan comes to an end, they’ll work out how much you’ve saved, and if it turns out you’d have spent less without Delivery Saver, they’ll email you a grocery eCoupon for the difference.
Today I did a mega shop at Tesco. I saved an amazing 10 p on my branded shop – I mean eh? Why did they give me a piece of paper to tell me I saved 10 p compared to if I went to Sainsbury’s?
Anyway, the branded shop saving paper is silly, but what annoyed me today and annoys me regularly is fruit and veg pricing.
Here’s an example from today:
£1.95 per kg golden delicious loose apples (88p per lb)
£1.75 for a five pack of golden delicious apples, so 35 p each but no kg or lb price.
Now, I bought four loose golden delicious apples for £1.19, so that’s 30p each, but had to use the scales to work this out.
I know that loose is often cheaper, but why …
