    MSE Rhiannon says:

    This offer is great as you get a loyalty card stamp when you claim your free drink, so after 10 stamps (free or not) you'll get an 11th hot drink free, too! Great for weeks where one caffeine hit on the go isn't enough. What's more, if you bring your own re-usable cup, you'll get two stamps per drink - getting you closer to another free drink twice as quickly.

    It's worth noting that all the fruits are provided in non-recyclable packaging, apart from the mangoes, which are loose.

  • Every two weeks Aldi runs a deal called the 'Super 6' on six fruits and vegetables, for less than £1 each.

    The current offer runs from Thu 20 Dec until Wed 3 Jan and includes the following:

    • 28p Parsnips (500g) - next cheapest we found, 29p at Tesco.
    • 28p Brussels sprouts (500g) - next cheapest we found, 29p at Tesco.
    • 28p Swede (each) - next cheapest we found, 49p at Lidl.
    • 28p Red/white cabbage (each) - next cheapest we found, 79p (red/white cabbage) at Tesco, 75p (white cabbage) at Morrisons.
    • 28p Carrots (1kg) - next cheapest we found, 29p at Tesco.
    • 28p White potatoes (2.5kg) - next cheapest we found, 29p at Tesco.

     

    It's worth noting that all the vegetables are provided in non-recyclable packaging, apart from the swede, which are loose.

  • If you go online or in some stores to Morrisons*, you can get a selection box of wonky veg for £3.50. Online delivery's from £1 on a minimum order of £40+. See full T&Cs*.

    The wonky veg box will include:

    • Carrots - approx four (large).
    • Onions - approx six (small).
    • Potatoes - approx eight (large).
    • Parsnips - approx three (large).


    It'll also include at least three of a selection of other veg, which could include:

    • Cabbage
    • Swede
    • Cauliflower
    • Leeks
    • Peppers


    We priced up the box based on the included veg plus one cauliflower, swede and a cabbage at Tesco and came to £6.81. However, if you bought the wonky veg from Morrisons plus a swede and a pack of parsnips, it'd cost £3.92.

    So you'll save money with this box, but it might be worth picking up the individual packets of wonky veg instead if you like to know what you'll get.

    It's worth noting that the wonky veg do not come packed in any plastic, just the cardboard box which can be reused or recycled after you've eaten the vegetables. So, this box is good if you're looking to reduce your purchase of single-use plastics.

  • Discount supermarket Aldi offers online purchases of wine by the case. Standard delivery is normally £3, but Aldi has told us the free delivery is an introductory offer, which is not expected to end soon.

    Wines Aldi is selling by the case include:

    Thanks to forumite xeonander for the original spot.

  • If you're in North London, or the West Midlands, 122 Lidl stores in those locations are trialling a £1.50 box containing 5kg of 'yellow-sticker' veg, which is slightly past its best, but still safe to eat.

    You won't know exactly what you'll get, as Lidl say the 'Too Good to Waste' boxes are made up on the day with whatever fruit and veg are about to go to waste in the store at the time.

    Lidl also says it will "introduce additional price reductions on its fresh items that do contain 'best before' and 'use by' dates - on top of the 30% reduction already placed", see our Reductions in places you might not expect blog to read more about Lidl's 30% off stickers.

  • If you go in store or online to Morrisons*, you can get selected vegetables and fruit branded 'wonky', which may be slightly irregular in shape or appearance, but totally fine to eat.

    In most cases it makes Morrisons veg cheaper than all other major supermarkets - including Aldi and Lidl - but what's available will depend on the season and stock in your local store.

    Some examples of wonky veg available include:

    • 35p Carrots 1kg* - next cheapest we found, 45p at Tesco.
    • 42p Onions 1kg* - next cheapest we found, 59p at Lidl.
    • 43p Cabbage* - next cheapest we found, 59p at Tesco.
    • 87p Potatoes 2.5kg* - next cheapest we found, £1.18 at Lidl.

    It's worth noting that all of these fruit & veg are provided in non-recyclable packaging. If you're looking to reduce your purchase of single-use plastics, Morrisons also sell a Wonky Vegetable box* for £3 which doesn't contain any plastic.

  • 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.

Loyalty card discounts

  • If you're a student with an NUS Extra card, you can get 10% off food and drink (exclusions are listed in 'more info' below) at participating Co-operative Food stores. Just show your card at the checkout to get the discount. Not all stores accept NUS Extra - check if your local store is participating.

    The NUS Extra card is available to all students aged over 16 years (including distance learners and vocational students). It costs £12 and is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.

    • Can't be used in conjunction with any other offer apart from Co-op Membership. Discount excludes cigarettes and tobacco, baby milk, products in sale/promotion, stamps, saving schemes, National Lottery, gift vouchers, phone cards, continuity programmes, in-store concessions, PayPoint and newspaper delivery.

  • Sign up for a myWaitrose loyalty card (hit 'Join myWaitrose' after clicking through) and get a 'free' regular-sized tea or coffee in store every day from the self-serve machine, when you make a purchase. Some purchases are excluded, eg, 5p bags (see 'more info' below for full list), but a 10p banana should do it if all you're really after is a MoneySaving brew.

    Choose from Americano, cappuccino, latte, tea, mocha or espresso. If you haven't got one already, you'll receive your myWaitrose loyalty card within five weeks of signing up via the link above. Then simply walk in with your own reusable cup (see below), make a purchase and swipe your card at the till, and finally dispense your free drink.

    Why do I have to provide my own cup?

    Waitrose used to hand out disposable coffee cups for this freebie, but in 2018 it stopped this for environmental reasons (see our Waitrose ditches disposable cups news story). For where else you can save with a reusable cup, see MSE Rhiannon's Cup Discounts guide.

    For other freebies, see our full list of Free Teas & Coffees.

    • One free drink per member, per day. Offer excludes hot chocolate and isn't valid at Costa concessions, petrol filling stations, Shell and Welcome Break. Can't be used with other cafe or hot drink offers, or the cafe loyalty card.

      Also excludes tobacco, stamps, mobile top ups, e-Top up vouchers, lottery tickets, gift vouchers, cashback, infant milk formulae, car park charges, fuel and delivery charges.
  • If you've an iPhone or Android smartphone, you can get a totally free hot drink (normally up to £2) at Greggs when you download its rewards app. You can choose any regular-size hot drink (tea, latte, cappuccino, etc) and you don't need to buy anything to get the freebie.

    Simply download the Greggs Rewards app for Apple or Android and register within the app. The freebie appears automatically in the 'Rewards' section of the app once signed in and is valid for 31 days after signing up.

    When you order your drink, have your smartphone handy at the counter. Instead of paying, open the app and press 'scan now' ready for staff to scan the barcode that appears on your screen.

    Greggs told us this is an ongoing offer for new sign ups, but as always with this type of deal, it could end anytime.

    • The freebie can't be claimed with any other offer, so you can't claim a hot drink stamp when using it. It's not available at the following service station stores:

    You don't have to attach a payment card to your app if you just want the freebie. 

    Free hot drink via O2 Priority every week...

    Secondly, smartphone users can get a free Caffè Nero hot drink from 12pm noon on Tuesdays or Wednesdays via O2 Priority. Simply show your code to staff at the checkout. Previously, we've heard from users unable to get the codes after 3pm, so it's worth going early if you like this deal.

  • Ikea free cup of coffee or tea

    When you shop in store at Ikea (find your nearest), you can get a free cup of tea or filter coffee when you swipe an Ikea Family card at the in-store restaurant. Ikea Family is just the name of its free loyalty card scheme. You can sign up online or in store.

    You can get it anytime Monday to Friday, but not at weekends, and Ikea says you'll only need one Ikea Family card to get free drinks for everyone you're with. But of course, staff may raise an eyebrow if you turn up with a coach-load all wanting the freebie.

    There's also the option to upgrade to a cappuccino or latte for 40p.

  • You can get a free regular-sized hot drink in store every day with a Booths card as long as you bring your own reusable cup and show your loyalty card. If you don't have a cup you'll get it half price. Choose from tea, hot chocolate, latte, Americano, white Americano and cappuccino.

    You can only get this offer with a permanent Booths card - if you haven't got one already, you'll need to pick up a temporary card in store and register it to receive your permanent card. Booths says you'll receive this within two weeks if you register over the phone or online, but if you register via post it could take up to 30 days.

    It's worth noting you can't get your free drink in the cafe unless you're buying food as well. It's one regular hot drink per Booths cardholder per day.

  • If you regularly shop at a Paperchase* flagship store (see below), pick up its Treat Me loyalty card to get a free filter coffee up to the value of £2.05 at the Tinderbox café in store when you show your receipt from a purchase.

    You can sign up to the card in store at Paperchase on the day to get the offer, but you'll have to activate it online* whilst you're there.

    You can get one 'free' coffee every seven days, you can also get 10% off food in the café with this offer. See full T&Cs*.

    Participating flagship stores (find your nearest*) include:

    • Tottenham Court Road, London
    • Buchanan Street, Glasgow
    • St Mary's Gate, Manchester

    The online T&Cs stated that the free drink was coffee or any hot drink up to the value of £2.05, but we contacted Paperchase and it said this was not the case - you'll only be able to pick up coffee.

  • If you sign up to the free Debenhams* 'Beauty Club' loyalty card you can occasionally bag beauty freebies which sometimes include full-sized products or services worth £10ish.

    Examples of freebies we've seen include:

    Will the freebies always be available?

    Not all freebies will be available at the same time, and as they're limited stock/appointments it's more of a 'can you find 'em?' than guaranteed.

    If you're visiting a Debenhams store (find your nearest*) it's worth signing up to its loyalty card and checking whether there are any free samples to pick up when you're there or whether you can book the birthday freebies in advance.

    How else can the loyalty card save money?

    You'll also get three points per £1 spent on beauty & beauty electricals or fragrance. Once you've got 500 points, you can get £5 off a future purchase (see full T&Cs*). 

    • Participating stores for the Benefit offer include: Basildon, Basingstoke, Belfast, Birmingham, Blanchardstown, Bristol, Cardiff, Chelmsford, Foyleside, Cork Patrick Street, Dublin Henry Street, Plymouth, Glasgow, Gloucester, Salisbury, Hull, Leeds White Rose, Leeds City Centre, Leicester, Limerick, Liverpool, Luton, Mahon Point, Manchester, Meadowhall, Merry Hill, Metro Centre, Southend, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham, Sutton, Oxford Street, Middlesborough, Silverburn, Portsmouth, Preston, Romford, Bournemouth, Colchester, Stirling, Sunderland, Harrow, Swansea, Trafford Centre, Waterford, Oxford, Aberdeen, Swansea and Dundee.

      Participating stores for the Elizabeth Arden offer include: Aberdeen, Belfast, Brighton, Bolton, Bromley, Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff, Canterbury, Coventry, Croydon, Cork McMahon Point, Cork Patrick St, Chelmsford, Dundee, Dublin Blanchardstown, Dublin Henry St, Glasgow, Glasgow Silverburn, Ipswich, Lakeside (Thurrock), London Oxford Street, London Westfield, Liverpool, Leeds, Leeds White Rose, Preston, Leicester, Limerick, Manchester, Manchester Trafford Park, Merryhill, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Newcastle Metro Centre, Newry, Newbridge Uxbridge, Norwich, Nottingham, Oldham, Redditch, Swansea and Sheffield (Meadowhall).

  • If you sign up to the free Paperchase* 'Treat Me' loyalty card by picking one up in store then registering online, on your birthday you'll get £5 off in store or online with no minimum spend (see full T&Cs*). 

    It's valid for up to 14 days after your birthday. You'll not be able to use it with any other offer but when we tested it we were able to use it on sale items in store. 

  • If you sign up to the free Mothercare 'MyMothercare' loyalty card, on your child's birthday you can get 20% off toys as long as your child is aged six or under (see full T&Cs).

    You can add the birth dates of up to four children, who should all receive an offer for their birthday. 

    What else does the loyalty card get me?

    Your card will also get you 20% off maternity clothing as well as £10 off if you spend £100+, or £5 off when you spend £50 or more on clothing, footwear or toys.

  • If you sign up to the free Body Shop* 'Love Your Body' loyalty card, on your birthday you can get a free £5 to spend in store or online with no minimum spend (see full T&Cs*). 

    It's valid for up to one month after your birthday, there's no change from the £5, and you have to have made at least one purchase using the card previously to be eligible.

  • If you regularly shop in Superdrug* either in stores or online, it's worth picking up a free Superdrug Health & Beautycard* as not only can you collect one point per £1 spent for money off future purchases, you can get exclusive deals, too.

    Every week it has a special 'Treat Thursday' event, with various deals and offers. Examples of previous discounts we’ve seen include a free bottle of water, free delivery, triple points offers and 10% off all own-brand products. 

    If you're collecting points, every 100 points is £1 off a future purchase but unlike Boots, you can part-pay with points and then pay the rest with cash, which means you can use your discounts as soon as you've got 100 points.

  • If you have a Boots Advantage Card, you can get personalised offers and discounts at Boots* by downloading the Boots app. The offers vary for each person, as they are tailored to your shopping habits.

    How to get the app and offers

    • Download the Boots app* via the App Store or Google Play.
    • Go to 'My offers' and sign in using your Advantage Card number. This links your card to the app and you can then select offers by loading them onto your card.
    • Choose the offers you'd like to use in 'Offers just for me' and select 'Load offer to Advantage Card'.
    • Next time you use your Advantage Card, the cashier or self-checkout will ask you if you want to use the offer in that transaction. 
       

    What can I get?

    These are some examples of offers we've seen when trying the app (of course as the offers are personalised, not everyone will receive the same ones):

    • £1.50 off when you spend £15 or more in a single transaction
    • 20% off a shower gel or body wash
    • 100 points when you buy two or more shampoo or conditioner products
       

    What if I don't have a smartphone?

    You can also use the Boots website* to select offers and load them to your Advantage Card. Just register or log-in to view your account and offers.

  • If you're the type who prefers the feel of actual paper in their hand rather than a screen, you can get a 'free' newspaper when you spend £10 in-store at Waitrose.

    The cost of the paper gets taken off your final bill when you flash/scan your myWaitrose card. You must have a myWaitrose loyalty card to get the deal. If you're not a member, sign up online or in-store – it takes up to five weeks for the card to be posted to you and temporary cards are not accepted.

    Papers included are The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday, Scottish Daily Mail, Scottish Mail on Sunday, The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun, Sun on Sunday and Scottish Sun on Sunday. 

    You can only do this once a day.

    See the MyWaitrose page for more details on how to get a free card. 

    • For over 18 year olds only. Excludes petrol stations, Shell and Welcome Break, Yateley, Goldsworth Park and Belgravia stores. 

      Excluded items (that would make up the £10) include flowers, entertaining, home and hampers, infant formula, tobacco, stamps, mobile top ups, e-Top up vouchers, lottery tickets, gift vouchers, cash back, car park charges and fuel.

Having trouble printing?

For starters, make sure your printer is on and has enough paper! Many coupons use Adobe Flash Player software to print, so download the latest Flash software.

If you have a pop-up blocker installed on your web browser, disabling it may help. You may be asked to install a coupon software application before the voucher will print; just follow the instructions to do this. Some anti-virus software will flag up the file but it's not malicious - if you're worried you can always delete it after you've printed the coupons you'd like. Some coupons will allow you to bypass the software download by putting in your mobile number to receive a code.

Finally, coupons often work much better in the Internet Explorer (IE) browser than they do in others. So even if you use another browser, like Firefox or Chrome, have a copy of IE just for coupons.

Grab even more coupons

Coupons are everywhere. Root through junk mail, scout around tills, rip them out of magazines - they all add up. Plus keep an eye on the MSE Forum Printable money-off coupons thread.

The Magazine Offers Thread is another excellent resource, where MoneySavers kindly catalogue all coupons and offers in current magazines. If the magazine costs more than the coupon's worth, it's not worth it. But if you were buying your fave glossy anyway, you're quids in.

Newspaper coupons

Newspapers can be a good source of coupons, often worth £2 and up and normally free in newspapers such as The Metro. You can often grab as many papers as you like and use the same coupons again and again (as long as it's on different shopping trips). Check out our Extreme Couponing guide for more information.

If you'd like to check the forum for newspaper coupons, go to the Discount codes ‘n' voucher Forum board and look at the NEWSPAPER SUMMARY thread.

Be careful with in-store magazines

Coupons from supermarkets’ in-store magazines usually only work in that specific store. So a coupon to save £1 on Pampers from the Asda magazine usually won’t work in Tesco.

Ask for a raincheck voucher

If a special offer item is out of stock, many supermarkets will give you a voucher entitling you to the same deal at a later date. Read a full 'how to' in the Supermarket Savings guide.

Warning! Don't sneak through self-scanning machines

Some self-scanning checkouts let you scan multiple coupons, even when you're not buying the relevant products. These machines operate based on trust, so by deliberately using incorrect coupons without permission you could be accused of fraud.

If you want to use coupons, be upfront and give them to the cashier. Then you're being honest, and it's the store's decision whether to allow it.

Warning! Don't print multiple coupons!

You can usually only use one coupon per person, so those found printing out and using multiple coupons in different names or email addresses could be arrested and charged with fraud. Always check the terms and conditions yourself.
