    Extra 10% off clearance groceries, including 9p crisps

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

    Expired

    Grocery clearance site Approved Food* now offers 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 MSESEPT at the checkout. The code will work until 10am on Wednesday 28 September.

    As part of this Blagged offer, we've also got some popular products that you can only get via our links (while stock lasts) – you won't find these searching the site normally. The prices in the links include the 10% discount:

    We've also spotted these strong deals which are available to everyone (but stock may be more limited). Again, the prices in the links include the 10% discount: 

    Delivery starts at £3 for up to 25kg, but varies depending on where you live and the weight of your order (see 'More info' below). This cannot be used alongside any other codes except for FREE55 which gets you free standard delivery on one box worth over £55.

    'Best before' vs 'use by'

    While 'use-by' dates are an important health warning, 'best befores' are simply 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Approved Food tends to display the best-before date online for each product, so you'll know if what you're buying is out of date.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 4.3/5, 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 Georgia-May says:

    Shopping via Approved Food can be a great way to save on stocking up on those cupboard essentials, if you're not fussed about some items being past their best before. Especially at the moment while food prices and the general cost of living are unfortunately increasing. 

    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.
