SUMMER is not looking especially sunny this year, but you can warm yourself up in Lidl's bargain hot tub which is coming back in stock.
The pool has sold out in previous years and it's likely to be popular again this time with the bargain price tag of £299.99.
The Middle of Lidl hot tub deal is only in stores as you can't shop online at the discounter.
You'll see the pool on shelves from Sunday, July 4 and it will only be available while stocks last.
The Middle of Lidl is where you can pick up random items at very often bargain prices – but once they're gone, they're gone.
You can see what will be there ahead of time though, on the Lidl website, or via the Lidl Plus app.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you – so don't be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
Lidl's Mspa inflatable whirlpool hot tub fits four people and reaches a more than balmy 40C.
Measuring just under two meters, you can apparently get this set up in just six minutes, but that won't include filling the tub with water or heating it up.
There's a 700 litre capacity and 118 jets that create massaging bubbles when you do take a dip.
Availability will depend on your local store, and it could be worth checking ahead before you set off.
You can find your nearest store, contact details and opening times using the store finder tool – just pop in your postcode.
You'll also be limited to just one tub per customer.
Lidl has priced the hot tub at £299.99 this year, which is the same as last year for the same model, and the year before that for a slightly different version.
But don't forget on top of the initial outlay you'll have further costs like chemicals for keeping it in good condition, and electric costs for running it.
Hot tubs are proving popular again this year, after a spike in sales during lockdown last year thanks to coronavirus "stay at home" orders.
Lidl isn't the only retailer with hot tubs back on the shelf, but it is among the cheapest availble.
