  • Extra 10% off clearance groceries

    Extra 10% off clearance groceries

    Blagged code on reduced 'past-best' (but safe to eat) items. Min order £22.50

    Expired

    If you go online to clearance site Approved Food* you can get an extra 10% off everything on orders costing £22.50 or more, including past-best-before (but safe-to-eat) groceries, when you enter the MSE Blagged code MSEAUG21 at the checkout, until 11.59pm on Wed 25 Aug.

    Delivery starts at £3 for up to 25kg, but varies depending on where you live and increases with the weight of your order, although if you spend over £55 you automatically get £3 off delivery (see 'More info' below). Plus, if you're new to Approved Food, you can get free delivery with any order costing £22.50 or more when you enter the code WEL-25 at the checkout. The discount code box will be on the right-hand side of the page after you've entered an address and you can use both codes in one transaction – you'll just need to enter the second code into the same box.

    We've also blagged some popular products that you can only get via our links – you won't find these searching the site normally – while stock lasts:

    '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.

    While look and smell are important and often the best indicators, you can't always tell with packaged items such as these, especially as you won't be able to check each item before it's delivered to you. Though not everything's past its best 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Approved Food tends to display the best-before date online for each product, so you'll know if what you're buying is out of date.

    What MoneySavers say about Approved Food

    Even though Approved Food has a Trustpilot score of 4/5, feedback on Approved Food is mixed. Some suggest bargains have recently become harder to find, and others say using the cheaper option for post makes it a much slower service. We've seen reports from users across our forum and Trustpilot that the food arrives well packaged and in good condition, and that the food itself is decent quality.

    See the MSE Forum for more feedback (good and bad), but do bear in mind that bad news usually travels faster and further.

    MSE Laura B says:

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