Everyone raise your hand if you shop at Asda.
Now, keep your hands raised if you know about the Asda price guarantee AND actually use it to check your receipts after you’ve shopped with them?
I bet there’s not too many of you left with your hands in the air is there?
OK, I know you probably didn’t raise your hands there but you get my point I hope. Lots of us shop at Asda whether it’s just every now and again or to do our weekly shop and I’m pretty sure that the vast majority of us don’t take advantage of the Asda price guarantee policy.
Basically, the Asda Price Guarantee lets you compare the cost of comparable grocery items in your Asda shop to the advertised price of those comparable items at any of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons or Waitrose.
As long as you’ve bought at least 8 different items from Asda, of which at least 1 must be comparable to an equivalent item sold by one of the other supermarkets listed above then you can input the bar code from your receipt into the Asda Price Guarantee tool to see if your shop could have been cheaper elsewhere. If you could have save money elsewhere then you’ll see this little message:
As you can see my shop last night would have been cheaper at Tesco so I got a handy little money off voucher to use next time I shop in there.
My Asda shop was only 30p more than I would have paid at Tesco but my voucher is for £1.59 thanks to the fact that they give you the difference between what your shop actually cost and what it would have cost if it was 10% less than it’s competitor:
You have a month to use your voucher but remember that you need to use it with the original receipt and it must be printed out.
There are people who spend time looking for discarded receipts in and around Asda in the home that someone else’s shopping will make them some money to use of their next shop and I see people saying they’ve saved a fortune which is great. Taking it to that degree isn’t for me but the odd saving from checking my on receipt is brilliant!
PS. I know lots of you will already know about the but I was telling someone about it the other day and they didn’t have a clue so I thought it was worth sharing. 😉
