Has Anyone Gone to Sainsburys for Their Double up Promotion?

Money Saving

I went in store while I was getting groceries and hoped to be able to get some clothes I need (as I got rid of almost everything I had just before lockdown the first time and haven’t been able to get anything to replace some items since!) and a few Christmas presents while I was there. My local Sainsbury’s barely had anything in stock that was included in the double up promotion though - even the clothes weren’t in stock in my size.

I was quite disappointed to be honest, although I can understand the lack of stock too given the pandemic. I wondered if anyone else had experienced the same, or if you were more successful?

For me it would be a false saving as it can only be spent on clothing, tech and homeware. I would prefer to use what I have on Christmas food as I have got all my presents.

That makes sense if you don’t need anything in the categories they allow you to use it on. I wish they would allow it to be spent on food too though. I’m sure that would be more beneficial to more people.

Did swap your points in store or did you have to use their app that they’re promoting. I would like some of Taste the difference sherry and port.

You can’t do it in store anymore, they won’t let you. You have to use the app. It isn’t difficult to do though - just click the “double up” icon and then press next until you’re at the double up screen and select how much you want to double up. It’s instant too, so you can spend it immediately.

cocolgooh I doubt the store will have what I want so I could end up losing the points as I suppose you have to select which department. Thanks for replying.

Pjran You don’t have to select a department anymore - you can use it on any of the departments that are included!

BlueOrchid I’m glad you found some things you wanted, shame you couldn’t find a coat you liked too though! That’s a cool Christmas jumper too!

Yes we went Saturday, but as you said poor levels of stock, didn't end up buying anything via Double up in the end . We'll just use our points to reduce Christmas the food shop instead in a few weeks

That’s a shame yours didn’t have much stock either. I think using the points you would’ve doubled up on the food shop instead makes sense though! At least that way it’s something you want that’s in stock.
