Exclusive to mySupermarket, a Savvy Buy is any item with at least 30% off of its average price. We check the price across the stores available over the past 12 months and let you know if the product is particularly good value right now, even if the store doesn’t!
TOP TIP Interested to see how much supermarket prices change? You can scroll down on any mySupermarket product page to view the average price graph. Be warned though, they can be a bit of a roller coaster!
Fail to plan and you plan to fail.Taking the time to organise your food shop before you get to the store protects you from unnecessary spending. Whether you’re a fan of pen and paper or you want to try a savvy app like mySupermarket, your shopping list is your number one ally in cutting costs!
TOP TIP Enter your list onsite using the Quick List feature and we’ll build you your own personal supermarket shelf dedicated to what you need- cutting time and the chance of impulse buying.
When you are shopping and comparing on mySupermarket, we’ll scour the shelves for the best deals to make sure you never miss a bargain. If we find you can make a Swap and Save, we’ll let you know!
TOP TIP Bigger packs don’t always mean better value. Remember to check unit price when comparing items, it may actually be cheaper to get two smaller packs than one big one! Also consider switching up your brand loyalty and experimenting with other manufacturers’ products. This doesn’t always mean moving to own brand but by increasing flexibility you’ll be able to bag more bargains!
With every supermarket claiming to be the cheapest, how can you really know that you are paying the best price on your weekly shop? Compare your shop from retailer to retailer and you’ll always get the best deal. In the past this would have been impossible, but mySupermarket lets you compare 11 retailers on site or in store with our app.
TOP TIP If you have all of the supermarkets in close proximity make the most of it. Offers change from store to store but are often rotated. Instantly check to see if a product is cheaper elsewhere using mySupermarket’s app before you make the extra journey.
