  • Last year M&S and Lidl was insane, £1 turkeys, 20p luxury Christmas puddings etc . I regretted shopping earlier but a lot of it lasted until Easter and some toiletries sets are still under the bed for this years presents! Anyone know what other stores will do this and what the best times to arrive are , trying to organise a sleek 2hr xmas eve bargain fest in the nearest city.

    Got a 500 gm punnet of red grapes for 13p in Asda, the parrot is overjoyed.

    I've never struck gold on Xmas eve although have only ventured to the local co op not one of the big supermarkets.

    What time do you tend to find xmas eve reductions? Are they around the same time as usual (ie an hour before closing) or do they do it earlier? First year we'll try going!

    Expect to find 24th and 25th from early doors and even 26th dated stuff as some shops know they won't be as busy on boxing day to shift it all.

    Yes last year was literally the last hour - COP, Lidl, M&S. I'm looking at whose closed for 2 days this year and Waitrose looks a good bet

  • Anyone get any xmas eve bargains ? M&S yellow sticker man literally needed armed guards by 4:45 :-) Waitrose was disappointing but M&S & Tesco very good

    Lots of carrots & sprouts being given away free in Asda this morning
  • Went to Morrisons a couple of weeks ago about an hour before closing time and got a loaf of Warburtons Toastie for 6p and 2 packs of tiger rolls for 8p each. Stuck the loaf in the freezer and the rolls made lunch for 2 days for me and my partner: when they got a bit hard I just quickly ran them under the tap and heated them in the oben for 10 mins at 180 and they were fine. Its very hit and miss though as one day I got those and the next week they had nothing apart from a battered cake.
