M&S logoM&S 10 Italian dine-in meal*Choose a main, two sides and a bottle of wine. In stores only

Ends Today

If you go into an M&S store (find your nearest*), you can get its £10 Italian dine-in meal, which includes a main, two sides and a bottle of wine, until Tue 24 Apr. 

What's on the menu?

The M&S website* lists six mains and eight sides you can mix and match (subject to availability), including lasagne, pasta bake, macaroni cheese, garlic bread, salad and fries.

Products may vary between stores. See the full menu*.

How much can you save?

Buying all the same items individually would cost you a minimum of £15, so you can save about a fiver with this deal - though possibly more if you choose one of the more elaborate mains and a pricier bottle of wine.

Please be Drinkaware. And if you'd rather dine out, see our Restaurant Vouchers.

Approved Food logoExtra 10% off clearance groceries, eg, 26p Pepsi*Blagged code for cheap 'past-best' goods. Min order 22.50

37 days left

If you go online to clearance site Approved Food* you can get an extra 10% off everything - including past-best-before (but safe-to-eat) groceries - when you enter the MSE Blagged code AFT100 until 11.59pm on Thu 31 May.

Not everything's past its best though 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Approved Food tends to display the best-before date online for each product - so you'll know if what you're buying is out of date. Delivery starts at £5.99 for up to 25kg, but increases with the weight of your order, although there's a delivery discount if you spend over £55 (see 'more info' below). The discount code box will be on the right-hand side of the page after you've entered an address.

There's a £22.50 minimum spend before the code can be applied, so it's only MoneySaving if you buy in bulk. Rather than replacing your normal supermarket shop, it's a way you can stockpile specific items you regularly buy when you spot them here at a heavily reduced price. So it's a bit of a game, and you'll need to do your own research to find the best deals for you.

Examples of savings we found on Tue 17 Apr:

IMPORTANT: 'best before' vs 'use by'

While 'use-by' dates are an important health warning, 'best befores' are just 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. Look and smell are often the best indicators.

What is Approved Food?

Approved Food is a company selling mostly 'past-its-best' and close-to-expiry (but safe-to-eat) groceries at a fraction of their normal price. Approved Food sells roughly 10 million items a year and estimates it's saved UK households over £7 million.

What MoneySavers say...

Feedback on Approved Food is mixed, with some suggesting bargains have recently become harder to find, and others saying the postage costs make it difficult to save much money. See the MSE Forum for more feedback (good and bad), but do bear in mind that bad news usually travels faster and further.

Most recently, in May 2017, forum user Wickmesh commented: "I've been a customer for nearly three years now, and have [had] a mixed experience... You need to search the site carefully to find the bargains (things worth buying at all) - and that takes time."

More info in the MSE full guide to Cheap Supermarket Shopping.

How delivery works...

1. £5.99 for 25kg and under.

2. £8.50 for more than 25kg but less than 50kg.

3. £4.50 per additional 25kg thereafter.

If you spend over £55, £5.99 will automatically be deducted from the delivery cost at the checkout.

Hipp Organic logoProduct recall: Hipp Organic Fruity O's cerealCheck for affected 140g boxes sold at Tesco

Mon 17 Oct

Children's food manufacturer Hipp Organic has issued an urgent safety warning as four batches of its Fruity O's breakfast cereal (140g) are believed to contain pieces of metal wire.

Hipp Organic Fruity O's breakfast cereal

Hipp Organic says you should not use the cereal if its 'best before' date falls between 19 Jan and 3 Mar 2017.

As a precaution, if you reckon you've bought one of the affected packs (sold only at Tesco), you should refrain from using it and instead return it to the store for a full refund.

No further batches of Fruity O's cereal or other Hipp Organic products are thought to be affected.

Asda logoAsda 3.50 wonky veg box*6ish off odd-shaped seasonal veg, in 550 stores

10,000 avail

If you're concerned about food waste and believe beauty is on the inside, then you might want to see if you can pick up a wonky veg box for £3.50 in store at Asda*. The boxes, which are available in 550 stores, contain 5kg of peculiar-shaped, odd-sized seasonal veg that wouldn't win any beauty contests - but should be just as nice on the inside.

Asda says 10,000 boxes are going into 550 participating stores (see the full list) every month - so it's worth going quickly if you want the pick of the wonky crop.

What's in the box?

Each box is different but Asda tells us an example might contain about 500g carrots, 1kg potatoes, two onions, two courgettes, one cucumber, one cabbage, 300g leeks, 300g parsnips and three peppers - enough, Asda says, to feed a family of four for a week. If bought normally, this would cost £6ish. Though there are other ways to save on veg, see MSE Coupon Kid Jordon Cox's blog on buying individual veg rather than pre-packaged, Aldi's Super Six and Lidl's vegetable offers.

Why is Asda doing this?

Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver says 20%-40% of quality fruit and veg produced by UK farms is wasted in part because supermarkets think we're a superficial bunch who won't buy 'ugly' fruit and veg. The big supermarkets are now under pressure to cut food waste.

Wonky veg boxes are great if you want to contribute to cutting back on plastic use, food waste, help farmers, and save money (about 30% off Asda's standard prices, it says - but you may find it's cheaper to buy veg individually elsewhere).

Let us know if you found one of these boxes and what you think of it on Twitter or Facebook.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links.
