Save with cashback apps
Using these apps, you can find offers on individual products including coffee, cereal, teabags, pizza and biscuits along with cleaning products.
The amount of cashback you can earn will vary according to both the app and product you buy. As a rough guide you can save from around 30p when buying a Loyd Grossman pasta sauce up to around £2 when buying a Febreze air freshener.
How to use cashback apps to save money
You will need to do a few minutes’ work to make savings with cashback apps, compared with handing over a coupon at the till to get an instant discount. Here are some steps that you can follow:
Download the app: In most cases, you’ll need to download the app and create a free account by adding your name and email address. Once you’re registered, you can browse the app to check for offers, where you’ll find details of participating stores plus any expiry date and terms and conditions.
Buy the right product: Make sure that you get the correct product (for eg, 50p off Hovis Seed Sensations Seven Seeds 800g, NOT Hovis Soft Medium Sliced White Bread 800g). With Shopmium, you can scan a product’s barcode on the app to check for any offers or verify if it’s the right product.
Keep your receipt: To receive any cashback, you’ve got to keep the receipt as it’s proof of purchase. Always make sure to get a printed receipt in-store or online with your delivery or collection order.
Receive your cashback: The way to do this may vary slightly depending on which app you use. With Shopmium, you tap the ‘piggy bank’ icon before uploading your receipt and scanning the barcodes of purchased products. Then, you’ll be paid into your PayPal or bank account. Cashback may sometimes accumulate in the app before you can have it transferred to your bank account.
Use cashback sites for discounts on all of your supermarket shopping
As well as coupons or cashback on individual products, you can also earn cashback on your entire trolley load with cashback sites such as TopCashback.
Deals change regularly. But recent ones we spotted were offering cashback at supermarkets including Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco and Iceland. Some offers are available for both new and existing customers.
- Tesco offers £6.60 cashback on Click and Collect orders for new customers with a £25 minimum spend.
- Earn up to £10 cashback at Asda if you’re a new online customer and you spend a minimum of £48. Plus, you get smaller amounts off on your next three shopping trips.
- New customers can earn £8 when spending at least £40 shop at Morrisons.
First time online supermarket order discounts
Some supermarkets including Sainsbury’s and Iceland offer supermarket discount vouchers to first time customers who order online.
- Sainsbury’s has an offer for £12 off for new online customers who spend over £60 on their first online shop for all orders delivered on or before 31 January.
- With Iceland, if you go via cashback site TopCashback you can get up to 6% cashback if you shop online, plus free next day delivery on orders above £40.
- Ocado also offers a discount of 25% on your first order (when spending £60 or more), as well as free delivery for the first three months.

Supermarket magazine coupons
You can often find instant money off coupons in free supermarket magazines. This means clipping them out to show at the relevant store checkout or looking for a code to use with online orders.
Some of these discounts may be short-lived, so do check any expiry date along with terms and conditions before you try to use them.
Sign up to product websites or newsletters for discounts
You can also save money by going on the website for your favourite brands and products and signing up for free newsletters. Doing this may mean you get coupons and discounts by email, although you will need to tick the box to agree to marketing emails.
For example, we signed up at Farmfoods and were instantly sent money off coupons. This included a voucher for £5 off when spending £60 and £9 off when spending £100. Can be used at the in store till, either by showing the code on your phone or printing the voucher, valid until 23 January 2024.
Take advantage of supermarket loyalty schemes
Signing up for supermarket loyalty schemes is free and can mean coupons, free food and special offers.
With some loyalty schemes you get a plastic card, while with others, such as Lidl, it’s an app-based scheme.
Supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons also offer discounted prices on certain products to their loyalty card holders. To get the cheaper price, you usually have to scan your card or app at the checkout.
Nowadays, going into a supermarket without a loyalty card for that store will likely mean you overpay, so make sure you carry it with you.
Using coupons, codes and cashback can be a great way to save on your supermarket bill but it pays to check the rules first.
- Check which supermarkets you can use any coupons or cashbacks at. Some offers may be exclusive to specific supermarkets.
- Some supermarket discount vouchers may be short-lived so always check for any expiry date along with any terms and conditions.
- With some coupons, the discount offered may only be available for a limited number of users, working on a ‘first come, first served’ basis, so get in quickly.
- We found that most coupons and cashback offers tend to be on branded products, rather than the cheaper supermarket own versions. It’s worth checking cheaper ranges, as buying brands, even at a discount, can still bump up your supermarket bill.
- Buying a product just because you have a discount coupon can be a false economy. You should only buy something if you genuinely want the product, or find it works out cheaper with the coupon or discount than the brand you were intending to buy.
- There are plenty of other ways to save on your supermarket bill. This includes shopping later in the day, swapping fresh for frozen food and buying wonky veg. You can find out more in our article on ways to save on your grocery shopping.
