Woman discovers clever hack to get Cadbury Heroes tub from Tesco for under £2

The nifty hack can take the price down from £5 to a staggering £1.89

The festive period is undoubtedly one of the most expensive times of year.

Christmas tree, travel costs to visit family, presents, office party outfit, Christmas jumper, colossal roast dinner with all the trimmings and a hoard of booze - these things can add up QUICK.

So, a cost-cutting hack or winter bargain is always a very welcome gift, and one woman has certainly provided the goods this year.

The savvy shopper in question has left fellow shoppers staggered by revealing a nifty way of bagging a notoriously expensive tub of Cadbury's Heroes for just a couple of quid.

The much-loved vat of treats - a perfect stocking-filler, or gift for someone you're not that close to - usually retails between £4 to a colossal £6 at Christmas time.

In Sainsbury's, the Cadburys delights are being auctioned off for £5.50, while at Morrisons, they're selling for £5.

However, one woman realised that there's currently a special offer on for customers that have a Tesco Clubcard, which allows you to bring home the tub of joy for a slightly more reasonable £3.89.

But that's not even the most impressive bit.

She took to Facebook to share a snap of the iconic purple tub as well as the receipt to show how the price is broken down.

Speaking of Christmas penny-savers, the chocolatey news comes just days after it was discovered that Aldi had slashed the price of one of its bottles of red wine meaning it now costs just £3.49 a bottle.

Aldi's Specially Selected French Cairanne usually costs £8.99, but from 11 December its price is being cut more than half, meaning it’s under £3.50.

And if you’re concerned that the low price tag means you’re going to end up glugging a vino that tastes like vinegar - don’t be, because it's actually been a hit with critics.

Jane MacQuitty, wine critic at The Times, said the budget-friendly booze was a ‘festive gift to the nation’ and ‘the bottle to buy’.

She wrote: “Savvy shoppers have always raced to Aldi for their weekly winter £3.49 specials, but of the dozen popping up this month and next, its tasty 2021 Specially Selected French Cairanne, a skilful blend of 60 per cent grenache, 25 percent syrah, 10 percent mourvedre and 5 percent carignan, is the bottle to buy."

The cheaper price will run for one week from 11 December, so don’t hang around if you fancy snapping up a bargain.
