B&M shoppers are rushing to buy a kitchen essential that scans as 99% off.
The discount store is selling a three-piece glass canister set for just 10p – down from £9.99.
Posting on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, one shopper said: “Just moved house and needed some tea coffee canisters.
Just got some in B&M for £9.99 – reduced to £6.00 but scanned at the till for 10p! Well happy.”
A second shopper responded to the find and said: “Great find! I bought them last year for a tenner.”
“Wow! Fantastic well done,” said a third shopper.
The Russell Hobbs legacy tea, coffee and sugar canister set come in two colours – black and silver.
B&M says that the items are also dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
But, the discounted kitchen essential is only available in-store and shoppers will need to be quick while stocks last.
B&M’s website currently shows that the item costs £12 and is subject to store availability.
You can find your closest B&M using the store locator tool on its website.
Other shoppers have quickly pointed out that the item isn’t available in all stores – so you might not find it at your local branch.
B&M often introduces 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.
The Rusell Hobbs canister set is the cheapest at B&M – but it’s also available on Amazon for £24.99.
The B&M deal is the cheapest we’ve seen online for this type of kitchen essential.
Coming up in second place is Dunelm’s white hang tag three-piece canister set for £6.
How else can I save money at B&M?
The B&M barcode scanner app allows you to discover discounted items before the staff has even reduced them.
The scanner is located on the B&M Stores mobile app, which can be downloaded for free on your smartphone.
Shoppers can download it on the App Store or Google Play.
Once you’ve got the app, click on the “scan” button at the bottom of your homepage.
This will then bring up the camera on your smartphone, which you’ll need to use to scan barcodes.
When you’ve found a product you want to scan, simply point your smartphone camera toward its barcode.
The app will then automatically bring up the item’s price – this is when you’ll know if it is reduced or not.
Bargain hunters say some items come up as £1, 50p or even 10p through the app.
Shoppers should also keep an eye out for products with a white reduction sticker on.
This means they will have a certain amount slashed off the price shown on the label.
Shop for products at the end of the season.
It’s worth getting friendly with staff too.
They’ll be able to tell you when the sales will hit, or if there are bargains out the back – so you get the best bits.
