If you're new to the Asda Rewards app* (links to download it are on that page), you can get a £5 voucher in your 'Cashpot' after completing your first online or in-store shop until 11.59pm on Saturday 30 September. The voucher can then be redeemed on your next shop.
You'll have six months to spend your voucher. Asda told us there is no minimum spend required to get this reward as a newbie to the app, so you could buy a cheap item such as a single loose banana for 14p and still get £5 in your Cashpot.
And to celebrate one year of the Rewards app, Asda has also launched a 'Spin the Wheel' game in its app where you'll have the chance of winning a guaranteed Cashpot bonus of 50p, £1, £5 or £100 when you spend £5 or more. You can only spin the wheel once a day, every day in September until all Cashpot bonus prizes have been claimed.
How do I claim my £5 voucher?
Once you have downloaded the app and signed up, you'll be able to see various offers under the 'Earn' tab, which Asda calls 'Missions'. This one is called 'First Scan Bonus'. You will need to complete your first shop at Asda and scan the app before the £5 bonus will appear in your Cashpot automatically.
If your first shop is online, you must make sure you use the same email address for the Asda Rewards app as you do for logging in and shopping online, as this will link your accounts up.
How do I use my voucher?
The Asda app works a little differently to other supermarket loyalty schemes and is based on adding pounds to your Cashpot, instead of building up points. You can then convert your Cashpot balance into vouchers to spend, which can be done within the app in increments starting from £1 (the maximum single voucher amount is £100). The vouchers can be used on most items with no minimum spend.
- Using the voucher in-store: simply scan the voucher in the app as you go through the checkout.
- Using the voucher online: If your app and online accounts are synced up, vouchers are automatically applied to your online shop provided the total cost is more than the value of the voucher(s). If you have more than one voucher, the oldest dated will be used first.
Once you've placed the order, your vouchers will be 'locked', so you can't use them in store or on a second delivery. Then once the order has been delivered or collected, these vouchers will be taken off your shopping amount and removed from your Asda Rewards app.
Asda told us any unused pounds in your Asda Cashpot which haven't been converted into vouchers will expire within six months after the month in which they were earned.
You can't use the voucher on kiosk items, petrol, pharmacy, third-party or Asda gift cards and infant formula.
See our Supermarket coupons round-up for more ways to save on the weekly shop.
You can get school uniform items (ages 3-18) from £3 at Asda*, both online and in stores. If you're buying online, standard delivery's £3.50. Click and collect from a store (find your nearest*) is free. Stock for the cheapest items is starting to run very low, so there's no guarantee you'll be able to get what you're after.
What can you get?
- 2x polo shirts* – from £3-£6
- 2x sweatshirt* – from £7-£11
- 2x skirts* – from £7-£13
- 2x Trousers* – from £10-£16
Prices change depending on size. We noticed that a lot of sizes are sold out online. If George at Asda doesn't have the size you need available to order, try visiting a store instead. Alternatively, there are other similar items available online, but you may pay more for them.
On fresh foods only. Link a Blue Light Card to Asda Rewards appIn-store only
NHS and emergency services staff can link their Blue Light Card (£4.99 for two years – see full info) to the free Asda Rewards app to get 10% back each time on 'fresh food' purchases in-store (see 'More info' for exclusions) when scanning the app at the checkout. The amount will go into your Asda Rewards 'cashpot' which you can use to get a discount on a future shop in-store or online, so it's not an on-the-spot discount.
Asda says it considers 'fresh food' (and therefore included in the offer) to be all fresh meat and fish, fruit and vegetables, food-to-go, ready meals, chilled and dairy, bakery, and – bizarrely – flowers.
How it works
- Download/sign in to the Asda Rewards app, select 'More' then 'Memberships'. You can then link your Blue Light Card – once you've filled in the info, Asda says verification will take seconds.
- Shop as normal in-store (find your nearest, not valid online) and then scan your Asda Rewards app at the checkout – you'll receive 10% of the amount of your eligible shopping into your cashpot in the app.
- To claim money in your cashpot against the cost of a future shop you'll need to exchange it for an in-app voucher within six months (vouchers are then valid for three months).
You can't use the discount online, on George/George.com, Frozen, Non-Fresh Food items, health and beauty, baby, household including pet and laundry, George Home, Homeware and outdoor, entertainment and toys, Asda Tyres, Fuel, all alcohol, Tobacco, Lottery products, Gift Vouchers & Cards, Infant/Formula Milk, Cash-back, Fireworks, Online Games & Instant Tickets, Photo Printing, Saver Stamps, Postage Stamps, ‘Top-Up’ Mobile Phone Cards, any other online Financial Services and Insurances, Pharmacy, café & separate concessions and all items within the Just Essentials by Asda and Smart Price ranges.
Kids aged 16 or under can eat for £1 when dining in at any Asda café (find your nearest). There's no minimum spend or purchase required, and this deal is valid all day, seven days a week until the end of the year.
Asda told us there's a maximum of one meal per child, per day. The kids' menu includes dishes such as fish fingers, all-day breakfast and chicken nuggets which would normally cost £3.20. Kids can choose from either a hot or cold meal, and now all meals come with a piece of fruit.
For babies under 18 months, you can get one 70g free pouch of Ella’s Kitchen baby food as part of this deal.
See our Restaurant deals and vouchers page for other dining out deals.
Children must be 16 or under.
There are always ways to save money at Asda* so even if there isn't a cracking deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't cut your costs further.
Ways to save include:
- Supermarket coupons. Make sure you check out our supermarket coupons page to save on your shopping.
- Compare the cost of your trolley. Compare the cost of your shopping trolley at the major online supermarkets with Trolley. Prices are often reflected in stores, so it's worth doing a check to see which is cheapest for you. Sadly, it doesn't include Aldi and Lidl, which might work out even cheaper.
- Take the Downshift Challenge. The phrasing and language used hypnotises us into thinking most costly is best. While the packaging looks more opulent, look beneath it and sometimes you won't be able to tell the difference (often it's made in the same factory). Take our Downshift Challenge.
- Track if it's really a bargain. Most of us know just because a supermarket lists an item as "on offer", that doesn't mean it's cheap. The trouble has been sorting awesome offers from poor promos. To help, Trolley compares supermarkets and charts products' price histories to show if a 'was' price is realistic.
- Time trips right to bag huge yellow sticker discounts. If you spot a yellow sticker discount - fantastic. Grab it and use it quickly as it's a saving on perfectly good nosh. See when Asda normally reduces its produce in our Cheap Supermarket Shopping guide.
- Check out similar retailers, eg, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and the other major supermarkets. If you're not committed to buying from Asda, check out our deals from Aldi, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Lidl, Morrisons and Waitrose, where they may have a better offer.
- Try haggling. We polled 1,400 MoneySavers to find out in which shops hagglers have most success. Supermarkets did feature, so it's worth a go. Find out more in our Haggle on the High Street guide.
- Had a problem with Asda? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Asda*.
You can get a complete pair of varifocal glasses for £45 at Asda Opticians*. The price includes value frames, lenses, anti-reflective coating, tints and thinner lenses (if required).
We compared prices with a number of other opticians, and found that Asda Opticians was the cheapest for varifocal glasses. Always compare prices before you buy though, as you may find a good deal at your local opticians.
See below for the prices of a complete pair of varifocal glasses elsewhere:
- Vision Express from £50
- Glasses Direct from £68
- Specsavers from £69
