Parents race to B&M to snap up a £25 kids' play table that's scanning for just a fiver | The Sun

IT was marked up as £15 in the sale – down from £25.

And while it was already a bargain, mum Tasha decided to double check the price of the Deluxe Sand and Water Table – so scanned the barcode with the B&M app.

When she did so, she was delighted to find that the table was actually just £5.

"Fab bargain today!" Tasha wrote alongside a picture of the table in her trolley on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.

"This deluxe sand and water table in B&M, box says £25 but they were all stacked up with a poster saying £15 in the sale.

"For some reason I felt a reason to scan the barcode using the B&M app to just check it really was £15 as the more basic sand and water tables were nearby also saying this price.

"Need to go to B&M," a third wrote.

While someone else asked Tasha what the app was called, and how it works.

"Just literally search b&m in App Store… you don’t have to log in to still use the barcode scanner," Tasha replied.

The scanner lets you see if the item's price is cheaper than advertised on the shop shelf.

Products that are typically discounted are seasonal items and old stock that B&M is trying to shift, or they're labelled "big brands" and "big savings".

Once you've got the app, click on the "scan" button at the bottom of your homepage.

This will then bring up the camera on your smartphone, which you'll need to use to scan barcodes. 

The app will then automatically bring up the item's price – this is when you'll know if it is reduced or not.
