Here’s a nifty trick, by combining a coupon with a half-price offer in Morrisons stores, you can bag yourself a free posh soup. Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?
We have raved about this soup-er trick in the past and now the offer’s back. Here’s how to get it…
Step 1: Get the coupon
Go to the New Covent Garden Soup Co website and register for the coupon by entering your name and email address. Then you’ll be emailed a coupon for £1 off any New Covent Garden Soup Co soup valid in store at all major supermarkets. (Be sure to check your spam if it doesn’t come through).
You need to print it off and hand it over at the till – no showing it on your phone, sorry.
New Covent Garden Soup Co says the coupons will be available until all 30,000 go (it launched on Tue 12 Jul) – so get yours quickly if you want one. Once you print it, it’s valid for 30 days. You can only use one coupon per product purchased and it’s one coupon per email address (if you’ve used this trick previously, you can still claim this coupon).
Step 2: Find some discounted soup
Morrisons (find your nearest*) has a range of 600g flavours reduced to £1 from £2, until Sun 24 Jul – so you’d get the soup free using the coupon.
If you don’t live near a Morrisons, Asda (find your nearest*) has a range of 600g flavours at £1.98, so you’d get the soup for 98p using the coupon.
Keep an eye out for other offers, as these soups are often reduced. If you can pick up a soup which has been reduced to £1, you should get it for free with the coupon.
Even if you can’t find any that’s reduced, you can use the coupon to get posh soup for £1ish, which is still a decent saving.
Will it definitely work?
We understand that the coupon should be accepted at all major supermarkets and convenience stores that stock the soup, and the trick is working for a lot of people online (and has worked fine previously), so it’s definitely worth a try.
We do hear reports occasionally of checkout staff not accepting coupons, which can be due to error or inexperience. If this happens to you, try asking politely to speak to the manager about the store’s coupon policy.
