A woman has done what must be the cheapest Christmas shop of all time, bagging £44.60 of food for just £3.51 by heading to Asda at 6.30pm, just when the yellow stickers come out.
Bonita Aguilera, 22, shared a picture of her mega food haul from Asda to money-saving Facebook group Latest Deals, Extreme Couponing & Bargains Group.
The site services technician from northwest London wrote “Christmas is sorted” alongside the photo, and soon garnered over 200 likes and comments, with fellow bargain-hunters writing: “Amazing!” and “What a find”.
Bonita told LatestDeals.co.uk: “The best part of finding all these yellow sticker items is that they were all freezable.
"They had loads of packets of stuffing, cocktail sausages, bacon and some blue cheese. I also got some cheesy mash, tuna steaks, pork chops and salt and pepper ribs.
"The pigs in blanket fondue didn’t last very long but was lovely! I’ve worked out that all the yellow ticket items I bought cost£3.51 and in total they should have been £44.60.
"I’m going back to my mum's for Christmas with my boyfriend and she always spends so much on food for Christmas. She calls me up and says ‘Bon, how come you always find the deals and I don’t?’ so I decided I’d stock up for her and take it down.
"I was excited when I saw all the items as I love a good bargain and it always makes me happy that I can have quality ingredients for a fraction of the price.
"Some of the best deals I’ve found is hunting for items that are going out of date and politely asking for a reduction. If you’re keen to bag yellow sticker discounts, make sure to get acquainted with the times your supermarket reduces prices and be there on the dot.”
Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “It’s not always straightforward to find out when supermarkets slash their prices, but as Bonita advises, I’d recommend visiting your supermarket regularly and keeping track of the yellow sticker patterns. If, for example, like Bonita, you realise Asda slashes prices every day at 6.30pm and you get there on time, you could be in for some seriously impressive bargains!
