A MORRISONS shopper claims the supermarket has a “secret toy sale” with items scanning through cheaper at the tills.
Mum-of-two Harriet McGowan, 25, says she nabbed Paw Patrol figures for £3.75 instead of the £10 they were advertised as on shelves.
The figures are actually part of Morrisons' official toy sale, but it appears some stores may not have updated shelf labels.
Posting on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group, Harriet urged other parents not to miss out on bargains.
In total, she saved £6.25, or 62%, compared to the original cost of the Paw Patrol figures.
Posting on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group, Harriet said: “Morrisons have secret sale items as well as advertised on toys in store.
“Paw patrol figures should be £15 each, advertised at £10 on shelf – though I’ve seen some stores say £7.50 – but when I got to the till and scanned then, they were only £3.75 each!”
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you – so don't be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
Harriet, who lives in Blyth, Nottinghamshire, purchased four of the Paw Patrol figure sets in Morrisons’ Retford store.
Morrisons told The Sun that £3.75 is the correct sale price of the Paw Patrol figures, and said it's likely the store hasn't updated its shelf labels.
A Morrisons spokesperson said: “As we draw closer to Christmas we know some customers are already preparing.
“We hope our Christmas toy sale event will help them find the perfect gift at a great price."
Morrisons isn't the only supermarket to launch a toy sale in the run-up to Christmas – Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's are running their own discounts.
But before you part ways with any cash, we’d always recommend comparing prices online to make sure you’ve found the best deal.
