Sainsbury’s has just launched its first ever buy now free next time promotion. The offer is available on two items in-store, Pampers Baby-Dry Nappies Carry Pack in all sizes and Sainsbury’s white crusty baguettes.
When a customer buys these products, they will receive a coupon offering them the free product next time they visit Sainsbury’s. The offer is good through 24th November.
I think this is genius and Sainsbury’s picked the two products for great reasons. With nappies, buy one get one free offers force shoppers to take more product than they normally would buy which adds up to a lot of bulk to carry.
Baguettes on the other hand aren’t an ideal buy one get one free item because they’d go off before being eaten. This offer means shoppers can have fresh bread when they need it.
The only restriction seems to be that there will be a limit of four packs of nappies or baguettes per customer in a single transaction. So you can’t receive more than four ‘free next time’ coupons in a single transaction even if you buy more than four products.
Love to hear your thoughts on the offer!

Last week I was minding my own business, doing a quick shop at Waitrose (I know, its not budget but I love it and its nearest to my office!) and I walked straight into a WALL of Christmas candy and treats. That was September. Now that its officially October, EVERY store is in on the game. This weekend I took pictures at Boots and House of Fraser (see main snap) to document the Beginning of Christmas until I got bored with taking pictures.
It’s a fact, the Christmas retail season starts earlier every year. Possibly the worst culprit, Tesco, came under fire (well, if not fire, at least speculation about Santa’s potential anger) for selling traditional mince pies with an October expiration date. But I’m curious, is there a good reason? Do the shops make more money selling mince pies four months early? And does anyone decorate their tree in October, making it worthwhile to devote substantial space to Christmas ornaments before we’ve even thought about Halloween? Anyway, if you’ve got a strategy for saving money on Christmas that involves starting at August Bank Holiday, I’d love to hear it!

The Telegraph has a feature out today–looks like its part of Which? Money Autumn Special from Sainsbury’s–called 50 ways to save cash and among the categories are shopping, family, home and technology. They’ve mentioned a few tips I’ve covered here but added some new ones. Here are a few I think sound fantastic:
A great website for saving money on gardening is www.seedypeople.co.uk. The site lets you swap seeds and plants with other gardeners. It also runs Seedy Sunday (www.seedysunday.org), which is ‘the UK’s biggest community seed swap’ – check the site for dates and locations.
Cashback for kids
Register with free shopping club KidStart and get up to 20pc cashback when you shop. This money is then transferred into any child trust fund (CTF) or bank or building society. Hundreds of well-known shops are participating in the scheme. Visit www.kidstart.co.uk for more.
Many items are listed for sale on eBay with spelling mistakes, which can mean they don’t attract many bidders and may therefore sell for very low prices. The aptly-named website www.fatfingers.co.uk can help you with a search.
