  • Extra 10% off clearance groceries, eg, 26p Pepsi

    Extra 10% off clearance groceries, eg, 26p Pepsi

    Blagged code for cheap 'past-best' goods. Min order £22.50

    If you go online to clearance site Approved Food* you can get an extra 10% off everything - including past-best-before (but safe-to-eat) groceries - when you enter the MSE Blagged code AFT100 until 11.59pm on Thu 31 May.

    Not everything's past its best though and Approved Food tends to display the best-before date online for each product - so you'll know if what you're buying is out of date. Delivery starts at £5.99 for up to 25kg, but increases with the weight of your order, although there's a delivery discount if you spend over £55 (see 'more info' below). The discount code box will be on the right-hand side of the page after you've entered an address.

    There's a £22.50 minimum spend before the code can be applied, so it's only MoneySaving if you buy in bulk. Rather than replacing your normal supermarket shop, it's a way you can stockpile specific items you regularly buy when you spot them here at a heavily reduced price. So it's a bit of a game, and you'll need to do your own research to find the best deals for you.

    IMPORTANT: 'best before' vs 'use by'

    While 'use-by' dates are an important health warning, 'best befores' are just a manufacturer's guidance of quality. It's perfectly legal to sell goods beyond a best-before date. However, as there's no hard-and-fast rule on how far beyond a best before it's still safe to eat products, you need to make that call yourself. Look and smell are often the best indicators.

    What is Approved Food?

    Approved Food is a company selling mostly 'past-its-best' and close-to-expiry (but safe-to-eat) groceries at a fraction of their normal price. Approved Food sells roughly 10 million items a year and estimates it's saved UK households over £7 million.

    What MoneySavers say...

    Feedback on Approved Food is mixed, with some suggesting bargains have recently become harder to find, and others saying the postage costs make it difficult to save much money. See the MSE Forum for more feedback (good and bad), but do bear in mind that bad news usually travels faster and further.

    Most recently, in May 2017, forum user Wickmesh commented: "I've been a customer for nearly three years now, and have [had] a mixed experience... You need to search the site carefully to find the bargains (things worth buying at all) - and that takes time."
