SHOPPERS are rushing to buy the cheapest bathtubs on Quality Street – but there’s a catch.
A large supermarket sells bathtubs at low prices on Quality Street.
Morrisons shoppers can bag two 600g bars of the chocolate for £6 – but the offer isn’t available to everyone.
That means each tub costs £3 and is the cheapest price we’ve seen in the lead up to Christmas.
A shopper highlighted the tip on the Extreme Couponing and Bargaining Facebook group.
They said: “Chocolate tubs are 2 for £6 at Morrisons and if you have the MyMorrisons app I had a code for 15% off chocolates and sweets on top.”
And it’s as easy as “swiping your card” according to a Shopper on Facebook.
One online shopper said, “I stock up on these for work.”
Another said they were planning a trip over the weekend just to take advantage of the offer.
However, the discount is only available to shoppers who are members of the My Morrison loyalty scheme.
One shopper said: “If you have a MyMorrisons card you just scan it and you get the offer without the app.”
Non-members are charged £8 for two Quality Street tubs – or £4 per 600g tub.
The two-for-£6 tub discount means shoppers spend just £3 per tub – or £1 less than those who aren’t members of the MyMorrisons scheme.
If you’re looking for two tubs – it’s the cheapest option right now.
Two tubs can set you back £6.98 from Aldi and £7 at Tesco.
But if you’re just after a tub, you’re better off elsewhere.
We’ve listed the cheapest places to buy single tubs on Quality Street this week and Tesco and Aldi customers can bag a single tub for as little as £3.49 – 51p cheaper than in Morrisons.
Prices can also vary from day to day depending on what offers apply, so make sure you check and look at delivery costs too if you order online.
There is a handy comparison site – Trolley.co.uk – which compares the prices of 130,000 products in 14 major supermarkets.
The Latest Deals app also lets you search for items and lets you compare prices across multiple supermarkets to see where it’s cheaper.
The news of the two tubs comes just a day after Morrisons announced it would be launching exclusive discounts for its loyalty card members in a new bid to compete with Tesco.
Customers must ensure they scan their physical loyalty card or the My Morrisons app at checkout to secure the discounted food.
The discounted products are only available in store at all 498 Morrisons stores at the moment.
Morrisons also told The Sun it will introduce two price promotions per week as the scheme rolls out.
MyMorrisons was launched in 2016 under the Morrisons More brand.
Shoppers used to get five points for every £1 spent in store, and a £5 voucher to spend at Morrisons for every 5,000 points accumulated.
But in July 2021, the supermarket gave the loyalty program a real refresh.
Shoppers can no longer collect points through the loyalty scheme as the supermarket scrapped the collection of points.
Instead of earning points, shoppers now receive digital coupons that can be used for instant savings in stores.
So you won’t be able to earn anything on your shopping, but you will get “personal offers” and coupons to get money off your groceries.
And earlier this year, the supermarket changed its system by offering customers more of what they want.
It also launched a ‘basket bonus’ which rewarded shoppers who made sure to scan their My Morrisons card or in-app barcode at checkout.
Shoppers can sign up for the program online and in store.
The news comes a week after Morrisons announced it was giving away free hot meals to hungry Britons struggling to get by.
Other ways to reduce costs for your supermarket store
Research what you need before you go. Prices always vary depending on the supermarket and it may pay to change stores.
One shopper stopped going to supermarkets altogether in favor of their local wholesaler, allowing them to stock up in bulk at lower prices.
You can also cash in on discounted food like Yellow Sticker Bargains – these will be items that are reduced because they’re reaching their best-before date.
They’ll still be safe to eat or freeze to make them last longer, but that means you can pick up the same products at an even cheaper price.
Sometimes you can even time your store to stock items that are discounted on the shelves, which can help you get the best deals — many shoppers have said that’s usually in the evening.
But being smart about how you shop isn’t the only way to cut down on spending.
Especially as prices continue to rise, there are systems in place to help the hardest-to-buy essentials.
Parents can get up to £442 in Healthy Start vouchers to use at the supermarket, on food and more for their children, for example.
In addition, many councils offer supermarket vouchers as part of the Household Support Fund – so you can make your money go further with the extra support available.
