Discovering grocery offers and wine deals online
Collecting coupons and discount vouchers for supermarkets may sound like an arduous activity. However, thanks to the convenience of online grocery shopping, you can now save maximum pounds with minimal effort.
A quick internet search often yields a smorgasbord of money-saving discounts on groceries, wine, major supermarkets and off licenses. But just how do you tell the great deals from the duds? We’ve compiled a handy guide to the web’s best offers and discounts on groceries and wines to help you get your money’s worth.
The web’s best grocery offers and discounts
For big discounts on large bills, start by going direct to the supermarkets. Both Tesco and Sainsbury’s, for instance, offer new customers £15 off their first online grocery shop if their bill comes to £60 or more. Waitrose, on the other hand, is giving customers up to £70 off their second, third, fourth and fifth shops in total. Plan your grocery lists carefully and you could take advantage of all of these offers.
However, it often pays to look for deals from third-party websites too. MySupermarket.co.uk compares prices from all major UK supermarkets, giving you the chance to assess which shops offer you the best deal on that particular day. FixtureFerrets.co.uk, a website that keeps track of the latest supermarket offers and deals, is also worth a look. It costs 10p a week to be a member, but if you use it regularly you could make your money back in no time.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for coupons online to use in store, MoneySavingExpert.com’s supermarket coupons page is a handy resource. This constantly updated list contains printable money-off vouchers for everyday household items, from toilet roll to breakfast cereal. There’s also a useful countdown, so you know how long you have left to use these vouchers.
Finding wine deals on the internet
For those who like a tipple, MoneySavingExpert.com’s cheap wine deals page is indispensable too. Here, you’ll find the latest deals, codes and vouchers for buying wine. You can also sign up to the section’s weekly email so you don’t miss out on future deals. For another weekly update, make sure you follow the Telegraph’s best wine deals column for the latest great offers.
It can pay to go direct to major retailers too. Majestic Wines have a constant string of special offers with around 33% off some of their best wines of the moment. However, remember you need to make a minimum six-bottle order if you buy from Majestic Wines online. Tesco also have regular special offers on their wine site, though there may be a minimum order required for some discounts. They do, however, offer free delivery on all orders over £50.
And if you’re keen to build up your own wine cellar at low prices, be sure to take a look at offers from wine clubs. Virgin Wines, for instance, have a half price welcome offer for new customers. You’ll also find daily deals on their website, so you could get a case of your favourite wine for less than its usual price.
