Free £2 New Covent Garden Soup trick

Here’s a nifty trick where you can bag yourself a fancy free soup, by combining a coupon with a half-price offer in Morrisons stores. 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 link to print a coupon for £1 off any New Covent Garden Soup Co soup valid in store at all major supermarkets.

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 are available until all 14,000 left, as of on Tue 14 Nov, have been printed – so get yours quickly if you want one. Once you print the coupon, it’s valid for about 30 days.

Remember, you can only use one coupon per soup/transaction and it’s one coupon per email address (but even if you’ve used this trick previously, you should still be able to claim one of these coupons).

Step 2: Find some discounted soup

Morrisons* currently has a range of 600g flavours reduced to £1 from £2 until Sun 26 Nov – so you’d get the soup free using the coupon.

If you’re not near a Morrisons, Iceland* also has a range of 600g flavours for its standard price of £1 – but it only has a limited range of flavours.

Using the coupon, you could also get a 700g carton from Tesco* for 17p (reduced to £1.17 until Tue 28 Nov) or 25p from Sainsbury’s* (on offer for £1.25 until Tue 21 Nov) if you’re not near a Morrisons or Iceland.

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 could get it for free with the coupon – although it’s not guaranteed and may vary depending on the store you’re visiting.

Will it definitely work?

We understand that the coupon should be accepted at all major supermarkets and convenience stores that stock the soup, and we’ve heard from lots of people it’s worked for (and it’s 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.

For up to date coupons like this one, keep an eye on our Supermarket Coupons page.
