Trick to get 1kg of carrots for 9p
If you're a new or existing Topcashback* member, buy 1kg of carrots from Aldi and upload your receipt to its Snap n Save* webpage or app. You should get 10p back until Wednesday 24th April. If you live closer to an Asda, where the carrots cost 1p more, upload your receipt and you'll have only paid 10p after cashback.
Whilst cashback isn't ever guaranteed, if you buy your carrots from Aldi anyway you'll still have the cheepest this Easter.
You'll be able to get 10p back on any 1kg bag of pre-packaged carrots from most supermarkets, so even if you can’t easily get to an Aldi or Asda, you'll still be able to save. See our Easter page for more deals, including how to get a 'free' £1.50 Easter egg via cashback.
Will they be even cheaper after Easter?
These are good deals if you're looking to stock up before Easter, but previously we've seen supermarkets overstock and offer veg for as little as 5p or even free after big dates like Christmas and Easter - so it might be worth looking next week, too.
What about the plastic?
Most of these vegetables are packaged in plastic that isn't widely recycled, but it's worth asking at your local supermarket if they'll take it back from you to be recycled with their plastic bags. Some stores, eg, Tesco, have been known to do this.
You could also do your bit to cut food waste by checking in your local area for charities that’ll rescue excess veg - most offer it on a pay-what-you-can basis to people in need, or use it in their café.
