Shoppers rush to buy household gadget from Asda that scans at the till for nearly half its original price | The Sun

SHOPPERS have been rushing to Asda to buy a household gadget that has been scanning at the till for 50% off.

The supermarket giant has reduced the price of a vacuum cleaner.

Online, the Beldray swivel vacuum is going for £80 but one shopper said they got it for just £44 when they took it to the till.

Posting in Facebook's Extreme Couponing & Bargains group, the happy customer said: "Was desperate for a new hoover, gave this a try as our last one from Asda lasted nearly 4 years!

"£80 online, scanned £44 Asda.

"Picked up a whole tank of cat hair just from our living room carpet!"

However, some people weren't impressed with the quality of the hoover.

One commented: "I have this, it barely picks up anymore."

Another said: "Have got this hoover, started off really good, now power cuts out."

Of course, stock and price will vary from store to store.

Meanwhile, B&M shoppers have been rushing to buy bargain furniture scanning at tills for just 50p instead of £20.

How else can I cut my shopping?

Research what you need before you go.

Prices always vary and it can pay to change up your shop if you're looking for a particular item, like children's clothes, look at what stores are offering what.

One shopper ditched going to supermarkets altogether in favour of their local wholesaler, that way they could stock up in bulk, at lower prices.

For food shopping, you can also cash in on reduced foods like yellow sticker bargains – these will be items reduced because they're about to meet their best-before date.

They'll still be safe to eat or freeze to make them last longer, but it means you can pick up the same products at an even cheaper price.

If you're really ahead of the game then you could also buy winter clothes in summer and vie versa.

More often than not, retailers put the clothes people won't be wearing at the time up for sale – like winter coats in the summer.
