  • Zoe applied for the box on the Too Good To Go app

Members of money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk are going wild for Morrisons at the moment, with their £3.09 “Magic Boxes” a huge hit with bargain hunters.

One woman, Zoe Stanyer, 25, a Job Clinical Auditor in the NHS, says she managed to get boxes worth £30 each for just £3.09 each from the shop using the Too Good To Go app, which aims to cut down on food waste.

Zoe, from Stoke-on-Trent, told LatestDeals.co.uk: "I had heard about the Too Good To Go app from the Latest Deals Facebook page and decided to get one as I had seen other people get really good items in them.

"I managed to purchase two Morrison’s Magic Boxes last Thursday and was able to collect them Friday evening. The pick up was really easy and quick.

"The boxes I got were huge - I was very impressed. I couldn’t believe the size of them as I had only paid £3.09 each.

"They were fully packed with all different types of food including sausage rolls, pastries and pies, a loaf of bread, fruit, veg, donuts, cookies, four sharing bags of crisps, cream, custard, milk and two full-sized chocolate trifles.”

Zoe reckons the boxes were worth over £30 each, and the food within the box lasted for ages.

"I worked out I probably saved easily £20 to £30 if not more,” she adds. "Some stuff was put in the freezer, while others were eaten over the next few days. I ended up having an afternoon tea with a few friends as there was so much.

"The boxes do sell out very quickly so it is just a case of checking the Too Good To Go app daily, however it’s definitely worth it once you get lucky enough to get one. It would be good to see other supermarkets joining in as it’s a great way to ensure less food gets thrown away.

"I would highly recommend the app to everyone - I have already got a bunch of friends to download it and they think it’s great too.”

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “Bargain boxes of food? Trying new products you wouldn’t normally buy? Less perfectly good food being thrown away? Too Good To Go is a fantastic app that ticks all those boxes, and I love checking the Latest Deals, Extreme Couponing & Bargains Group daily to see the brilliant boxes people have managed to get!”
