We might be closer to winter than we are to spring but what better time to fill your home (or someone else’s) with cheerful, bright flowers?
The good news is that you can now shop and compare your weekly flower order along with your weekly grocery shop on mySupermarket. All you have to do is find ‘Flowers’ in the Fruit & Veg shelf on mySupermarket – and you will be able to see what is on offer in your chosen grocery store, or if indeed you would be better off buying them from someone else.
Just another way mySupermarket is making sure you never overpay.
We are very excited to announce (if you hadn’t noticed already) that we have added Poundland and Iceland to our site and our iPhone and Android apps. This means you can use mySupermarket to shop with these retailers for online delivery, or use our app in store to make sure that you are always getting the best deal.
To get you going, we have found these really great Savvy Buys from Poundland:
And from Iceland:
The summer holidays are drawing to an end, and even though the kids will be reluctant to go back to school, we know quite a few parents that will be much relieved that their kids will be back at it soon.
Here, at mySupermarket, we are all about making things easier and saving you money. With that is mind, we created a Back to School Store on mySupermarket with all the best deals and offers on Back to School essentials.
Offers change, deals end and new ones begin – be sure to check our Back to School Store every time you shop with us for the most up to date one-stop-shop for all your (and the kids’) back to school needs.
We wanted to celebrate it, and some of our favourite summer pastimes: picnics and BBQs! So we have a whole section dedicated to the best Summer Saves out there – from sunscreen to ice-cream, we have found all the best deals to make sure you make the most of the long evenings and warm weather.
As you put the final touches on your Easter bonnet and stock up on Easter treats- you may wonder about the prices you’re paying this year. Luckily, mySupermarket are here to help you find where the best deals are- and aren’t this Easter- and the rest of the year too! Take a look at what we found when investigating the average price of Easter eggs in 2014…
It’s Mother’s Day this weekend- but are you paying more to treat your Mum in 2014? We take a look here…
Cool, elegant, on trend- these aren’t always words you’d associate with going to the supermarket. In fact, we’re fairly certain everyone reading this has popped out for some milk or bread in their pyjamas (or at least their slippers…) at some stage.
So when we discovered that Chanel (you know that really posh and lovely fashion house) had staged their Autumn Winter show on a supermarket inspired catwalk we were a little confused. Confused but delighted. Finally we can all be cool (without the killer heels and Botox) just by getting the weekly food shop in.
Superstars such as Rihanna and Cara Delevingne took to the aisles in “big coats over disco leggings and trainers or leather shorts over leather tracksuit bottoms suggested a cool, ‘just popped out for a pint of milk‘” look. Erm, if you say so…
Whilst we’re sure that that flouro-tweed and neon dreadlocks are all must have accessories when popping to the Chanel shopping centre, they’ve forgotten the most important accessory of all- mySuperList!
So we’ve returned the favour of making shopping chic and made fashion savvy by adding our own mySuperList suggestions to the collection. After all, just because you are shopping in a premium supermarket to the stars doesn’t mean you still can’t make a saving!
CoCo Chanel Coco Pops anyone?
Swap and Save- mySuperList let’s you know in store if there is better value to be had. So Rihanna or Cara? Let us work out the best value for you…
Puzzled by misleading supermarket signs? Never fear, in store scanning and comparisons with mySuperList keep you informed. The model on the right knows what’s going on!
Comparing unit prices is one of our top tips for making a saving in the supermarket- even one as cool as Chanel’s! Is that a Savvy Buy or are you better off going else where?
If you don’t fancy queueing (and who does), you can bypass the whole this and order online from your phone anywhere you have internet connection! So you can stay in your pyjamas at home if you like, we won’t tell anyone!
What do you think? C’est chic or le freak-y?

Joke offers, feeling cheated and impulse buys are aspects of grocery shopping we’d all like to avoid. It’s easier than you think to fall for false economies such as needless 2 for 1s or offers that leave you out of pocket. Factor in the knowledge that food inflation is rising year on year and it’s easy to see why food shopping is taking up more and more of our budgets.
Luckily, there are still ways for savvy shoppers to save and beat the supermarket’s tricks.
Consumer expert Sarah Willingham joined the Sky Sunrise team this week to offer her top tips on making your money go further at the supermarkets. And guess what, mySupermarket is her “biggest tip of all”!
Watch the video now to see why you need mySupermarket and mySuperList to help you save.
Sarah’s top features
We’re the genie on Sarah’s shoulder as she navigates the offer lead supermarket aisles, both online and offline, and we can be your’s too. Here’s how we can help you save.
Use mySupermarket to expose bad offers
Sarah explains how you can avoid false offers, and get the best deals, by using our Swap and Save feature. Why buy the kilo of sugar pack when there is a 2 for 1 on the 500g variety? Would you have the time and patience to check all the offers in store yourself? Most probably not, so let us do the hard work for you. We’ll “tap you on the shoulder” and give you all the information you need to make the right choice for your trolley and wallet.
Use mySuperList’s Scanner to check deals in store
Sarah also loves the scanning feature on mySuperList. mySuperList makes your phone an indispensable tool as you can use the scanning feature to help you build and edit your list or to check pricing information in store. Look like a good deal? What if we told you that price is actually above the average and you’re better of waiting to purchase. Who else would let you know? The supermarket’s confusing signs? Not likely!
Use mySupermarket and mySuperList to make the most of your chosen supermarket
We know that not everyone has the time to cherry pick the best offers from store to store, but this won’t stop you from saving. As Sarah explains, you can use the Swap and Save feature and pricing information we provide to make savvy shopping decisions in the store you’re already in. We’ll let you know if an offer is worth bulk buying, or if it’s one to avoid. You can even use Swap and Save to switch brands or varieties to get the same product but at a better price. Result!
Thanks Sarah for spreading the savvy word! If you have a friend who doesn’t know about mySupermarket- why not share this video with them? If Sarah can persuade Eamon and co.- she can probably persuade them too!
