I shop mainly at Tesco but sometimes at Morrisonโ€™s as I have one close. Our essentials would probably be dog food, cat food, bread, drained tuna. probably loads more too lol. Great idea ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Oh, got excited & thought you were permanently replacing mysupermarket, comparing all items. Great idea though

Perhaps one day! MySupermarket took 14 years of development and a full-time team of approximately 3 developers to get to where they were at. We're trying to do it all in 2 nights with just us ๐Ÿ˜† baby steps!

It'll look like this

Sounds like a good idea. I think there are a few other apps out there that do this already. Good luck! Xx

Hey I know of Comparasaurus but that doesn't seem to work very well, can you let us know of the others you're familiar with?

Tom started using Comparasaurus but as you said it is no where as good as mysupermarket, but something is better than nothing, so grateful

Hey, perhaps one day! For now it'll be the five big supermarkets that offer home delivery: Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Iceland.

Is their no way to include a bar code scanner whereby you get prices for that product from major retailers?

Run out of cornflakes? Scan the old boxes barcode and see how much major retailers are offering them for.

You can hate me if you want ๐Ÿ˜‚

Itโ€™s a great start and something Iโ€™ve missed since My Supermarket. The thing I liked about My Supermarket was being able to click on an individual item and then showing prices at each supermarket rather than having to scroll through the whole list and compare myself. Itโ€™s great for it being so early on though!

Hey MattOsborne ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for the feedback!

We do try and group the same items together in the list as best we can (so that they're at least next to each other). The product matching (working out what items are the same across the different supermarkets - same brand, size, etc) so far seems to be the most tricky bit to get right!

If this version turns out to be popular then we can certainly look to spend some time improving it and providing more of the functionality mysupermarket had ๐Ÿ‘

One of the issues my supermarket had is that it never had the food and items from Aldi and Lidl and they are the cheapest supermarkets in the UK IMHO. So are you considering implementing those and if so how will you insert deals as the online shop is not as developed as other major supermarkets ?

Hi Susana the tool is now available here in the Latest Deals app. At present, we're focusing on supermarkets with home delivery. After Coronavirus, perhaps we can look to solutions for Aldi and Lidl. Always open to ideas.

Tom good stuff, stores like that and Home Bargains which sell food as well are extremely cheap and people can definitely save a ton. My bad for posting ebooks I did not know it doesn't count as a free deal, I visit the other deals app and find these so cool at times ๐Ÿ™‚
