MARKS and Spencer shoppers are rushing to buy a homeware essential that’s scanning at tills for £11 instead of £30.

The posh retailer has slashed the price of its 12-piece dachshund dining set by a huge £18.50.

Posting on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, one shopper said: “Not my thing, but spotted these in M&S in Preston.

“£29.50 reduced to £11. There were a few sets left.”

Bargain hunters were quick to comment – tagging their friends so they could also see the bargain find.

The set contains four dinner plates, side plates and bowls made of white porcelain.

M&S describes the set as durable, resistant to cutlery marks and dishwasher safe.

But, the discounted kitchen essential is only available in-store, and shoppers will need to be quick to get it while stocks last.

The set is currently out of stock on the M&S website, so you’ll need to visit your nearest store if you want to buy it.

You can find your closest M&S using the store locator tool on its website.

It’s possible that the item might not be available in all stores – so you might want to call ahead to check and avoid a wasted trip.

Retailers often introduce big discounts on old stock to make way for new items at the start of the season.

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.

We found a plain 12-piece dining set on sale at M&S for £15 – but the reduced deal is still the cheapest.

Dunelm is also selling similar sets, but they are priced must higher at £22.

The M&S deal is the cheapest we’ve seen online for this type of kitchen essential.

How to save money at M&S

If you look closely, you’ll find a collection of designer perfume dupes at M&S for a fraction of the cost.

They’ve been spotted for as much as £90 less than the original branded version.

M&S is famous for its range of unique and delicious treats like Percy Pigs, Colin the Caterpillar cakes and extravagant Christmas desserts.

If you’re looking to cater for a special occasion, M&S is definitely the place to go.

Do keep in mind you can find some dupes elsewhere. For example, Aldi sells its own version of Percy Pig – Leo The Lion.

Though they might not be cheaper, so it’s worth checking.

You can always find the nicest selection of flowers at M&S, and many bouquets come in a lovely little box.

Especially as we near Mother’s Day, you might spot a few different varieties for as low as £4.

It’s worth noting M&S is the only grocery store which offers its flowers consistently in takeaway boxes, complete with handles to carry straight to a friend or loved one.
