Savvy shoppers bagged unlimited free ice cream at a popular supermarket following a massive technical glitch on Sunday.

When you bought a tub of Breyers ice cream from Sainsbury's and scanned your Nectar card, you received a coupon for another tub free of charge.

Bianca Parkinson, from Maidenhead, spotted the glitch late on Saturday evening in the local Taplow store.

She then shared pictures into the deal hunting Facebook Group, Latest Deals, Extreme Couponing & Bargains Group.

Other shoppers then went to their own local supermarkets and it was confirmed to be a nationwide glitch.

Luckily, Bianca had enough space in her fridge-freezer for 36 tubs (image: Bianca Parkinson)

Bianca said, "It's an amazing glitch. The staff around me were hovering in shock. The man on the tills behind me overheard. He ran to the freezer and got the last four!"

The total price for the 36 tubs of ice cream came to just £2.50.

The ice cream had to be bought separately, scanning the Nectar card with each purchase to create a new coupon.

However, Bianca is planning to give most of it away.

She said,

"I'll be donating most of this to the local food shelter, helping those in need. If it can help someone else, that's great."

Latest Deals recently wrote about which supermarket loyalty schemes are the best. Perhaps this puts Nectar and Sainsbury's right at the top.

The glitch was still taking place at the time of writing but may be expired when you read this.
