A Sainsbury’s shopper found herself the ultimate bargain while shopping in one of its branches when she spotted items of Tu clothing on sale for just £1 each.
Connie Rawlings, 23, picked up six wardrobe staples for a total of £6 at the Gloucester store.
Taking to social media, the Sainsbury’s customer revealed that instead of scanning her whole shop they paid for just one item worth just £1 and used their Nectar Card before paying.
The customer says this nifty trick saves her £4.50 every time.
This means she can then use this money-off coupon against the rest of her shop, or a larger spend next time she is in store.
She saved herself a whopping £97 compared to paying full price for the items, which would have fetched £103 before the sale.
Demonstrating an eye for style, she bagged a faux leather A-line skirt, velvet tunic, animal print skinny trousers, grey culottes, black work trousers and skinny leather-look jeans.
Members of the group immediately began tagging their friends to alert them to the bargains.
“I went to Sainsbury’s to do the weekly food shop and noticed that they had a sale on their Tu clothing, so thought I might as well have a look while I was there,” Connie said.
“There were two rails of sale clothing items – all with half price stickers on – but I did have to dig deep to find these items.
“I definitely got a little buzz from making the saving, especially during a time where money is tight. It’s great to pick up a few new items for my wardrobe and save a few pounds in the process.”
“Tu has a mega sale on at the moment, with up to 50% off on women’s, boys’ and girls’ clothing, footwear and accessories,” commented Tom Church, Consumer Expert and Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk.
“It has been really popular among our community members and we expect it to sell out fast.
“There’s still loads to choose from online. The best way to blitz it is to search by the size you need to see what’s in stock. You get free click and collect to Sainsbury’s stores when you spend £20 or more, or you can pay £3.95 for home delivery.”
Writing on the Money Saving Hints, Tips and Ideas Facebook group, she said: “I don’t shop at Sainsbury’s often, but when I do, I pay for one item first, which is just over a £1.
“I usually then get a money off voucher for my next shop, today it was £4.50. Hope this is helpful.”
If you’re thinking of trying this hack out, keep in mind there is no guarantee you’ll get a voucher each time you make a purchase.
The amount of money you can get in the form of a voucher is also random, reports the Source.
To see if you’re in luck, scan your Nectar card before paying for your item and keep an eye out for any coupons.
Other shoppers have been left impressed by the supermarket trick.
One person said: “I’ve never thought to do this! Will definitely keep in mind now, thank you.”
Another said: “Very helpful thank you!”
A third added: “That’s a great help, will remember that. I just end up with loads of voucher that are useless until you shop again.”
A fourth said: “Had vouchers this week.”
