Don’t get me started about politics. One group tell you that things are great. The other guys say that things are still rubbish. Me? I’m voting Monster Raving Looney. I think they’re marginally better and my local MP is dressed as a chicken. Brilliant.
If you’re not feeling the “recovering economy” just yet then you can save cash by swapping between supermarkets. You’ll probably already be aware of the mySupermarket App which does a lot of the leg-work for you. It lets you compares prices so that you can see if the toilet roll is cheaper in Asda or Morrisons. Then you know which way to go before you head out, because we’re not loyal to our supermarkets any more. Oh no, we’re promiscuous purchasing people.
The new version of the iOS app has probably already made it into your pocket, now has one or multiple shopping lists, so you can plan your trips to multiple shops more easily. So, if you have an Asda near your home and a Tesco at work, the app will create a list for each shop so you get the cheapest selection based on what you want to buy.
Other features include a “Saving Centre” which gives suggestions on items you could swap to save even more cash.
So, if you want to save money, get this app downloaded. If you just use it for relatively expensive items like washing powder, dishwasher tablets, fabric conditioner etc then it’s still going to save you cash.
As for me, I’ll be in Aldi buying stuff from the middle section. Oooo.. I need those sports shorts and socks… I need that USB charger…
The updated Android app is to arrive very shortly.
mySupermarket App Passes 1.5 million Downloads and Launches New Version
Press Release: April 1st 2015
The mySupermarket app, which allows shoppers to compare supermarket prices on the go, has now been downloaded over 1.5 million times in the UK (Android and iOS).
To coincide with this download milestone, mySupermarket has launched a new update to the iOS app which includes a Mega List and Saving Centre, increasing the potential savings a shopper can make on each shop.
Shoppers using the new version of the app, which has over 700,000 monthly active users, can now have one or multiple lists, so if they are planning on shopping with Tesco today and Sainsbury’s tomorrow, they can easily see where items are the cheapest and allocate products to separate lists for each shop. The Mega List will feature lists separately but still let shoppers compare prices for their favourite products across all supermarkets.
Another new addition to the app is the Saving Centre, which is where a shopper can view all saving suggestions – for example, swapping that product from Tesco to Sainsbury’s, buying more to get a better Price Per Unit or trading down to own brand alternatives.
Gilad Simhony, CEO of mySupermarket UK: “For years mySupermarket has been helping shoppers save money on their weekly grocery shop through our Website. We are honoured that 1.5 million shoppers have trusted us to save on-the-go. That we have reached this landmark figure in only a year and a half shows the need for such a mobile service.
‘’Although the app has already been rated 4+ stars by over 1,100 people, we are excited at being able to help shoppers save even more money with the new features we are introducing.’’
