SAINSBURY’S has launched a massive clothing sale, and prices start from just Â£ 1.20.
The sale spans womenswear, menswear, and kidswear and almost everything is up to 50% off – but we’ve spotted some items that have been reduced further.
Clothing is discounted for customs clearance, so stock is limited and will not be replaced when sold out.
It also means that some products are already extremely low, with only one size available in most cases.
The sale is for select items only, but is taking place in five different departments within Sainsbury’s TU collection.
You can take advantage of major discounts online, but prices may vary when you purchase the same items in-store.
However, you should keep in mind the additional cost of Â£ 3.95 associated with delivering your order online.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is being offered or is part of a sale, that doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that will check the prices for you – so don’t pay more than you need to.
Most of them work by comparing prices from hundreds of retailers.
Here are a few that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that allows users to search and compare product prices on the web. Simply enter keywords or a product number to display the search results.
- Spy Award records an item’s cost history with over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay, and supermarkets. Once you’ve selected an individual product, you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which stores have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that allows you to compare prices between retailers. All buyers have to do is find the item they need and the website will rank them from cheapest to highest.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on products sold on Amazon. To use it, enter the URL of the product whose price you want to check.
But if you spend more than Â£ 20 the click and collect service is free or you can use Sainsbury’s localization tool while waiting to find your nearest store.
It’s also worth mentioning that you need to shop around first, because just because something is on offer or is part of a deal doesn’t make it a good deal.
