SHOPPERS have been rushing to buy a cosy bedroom essential from Primark that is scanning for half price at tills.
The high street retailer is selling a large, knitted throw blanket for £7 – down from £14.
Posting on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, one shopper said: “Bargain from Primark. Label said £14 scanned at £7.”
The savvy shopper said that she picked up the bargain while shopping at Primark in Hull.
The Sun has asked Primark if this deal is available across all of its 191 stores in the UK.
If you’re hoping to get your hands on the bargain, you may want to call your nearest store before you visit to avoid disappointment.
Primark is selling similar throws in an array of colours for just a tenner.
The retailer has described them as “the only blanket you need for a series binge sesh!”
At the time of writing, Primark’s deal was one of the cheapest that we could spot.
Shoppers could get their hands on a similar throw for £10 at Ikea – £3 more than the reduced price.
Or if you didn’t mind forking out a bit more, you could get a throw from H&M for £29.99.
But you should always have a quick shop around first as you might be able to find a similar product cheaper elsewhere.
Use price comparison tools like Google Shopping to find similar products from other retailers and compare prices.
This isn’t the first time shoppers have found items that scan at a lower price at the till.
B&M fans were raving about a velvet chair that was scanning at the till for £10 – down from £70.
The woman said: “My bargain of the day is a £10 velvet dining chair in grey.”
A second shopper said: “I bought the chair, it looks great in my dressing room.”
Others were quick to jump on the deal and another shopper said: “I need one.”
“These are stunning – on my wish list,” said a third shopper.
Shoppers also discovered a summer must-have that was going for £470 less than the original price.
The discount store is selling the popular Lay-Z-Spa for just £30.
An eagle-eyed shopper spied the hot tub on sale in-store and was quick to share the find on social media.
How else can I cut my shopping?
Research what you need before you go.
Prices always vary and it can pay to change up your shop if you’re looking for a particular item, like children’s clothes, look at what stores are offering what.
One shopper ditched going to supermarkets altogether in favour of their local wholesaler, that way they could stock up in bulk, at lower prices.
For food shopping, you can also cash in on reduced foods like yellow sticker bargains – these will be items reduced because they’re about to meet their best-before date.
They’ll still be safe to eat or freeze to make them last longer, but it means you can pick up the same products at an even cheaper price.
If you’re really ahead of the game then you could also buy winter clothes in summer and vie versa.
More often than not, retailers put the clothes people won’t be wearing at the time up for sale – like winter coats in the summer.
Sign up to loyalty schemes as these can earn you points which you can then use for money off future shops.
Tesco offers personalised coupons to its loyal customers through its Clubcard scheme.
Meanwhile, Sainsbury’s revamped the Nectar loyalty scheme in 2019 to also offer personalised discounts.
Customers can see the deals on the website or app each week, and then collect the extra points if they buy the item in store or online.
