TESCO is launching a massive sale, with toys up to half-offJust in time to begin Christmas shopping season
The discounts will be available beginning Monday, October 3rd.
Toys will be discounted by 40% to 50% with prices starting from as little as £7.50, but you’ll need a Clubcard.
Tesco’s loyalty program, the Clubcard, offers customers discounts on select products.
You can also earn points that can be used to buy items in-store, or at one of Tesco’s partners.
Some of these products include: Lego Friends Value pack, down from £40 to £24 – a saving of £16.
You can pick up a hy-pro football table for £12, down from £24 and half the price.
And squishmallow toys are discounted to £11.50, down from £23 – another half price offer.
The sale will be available at 260 Tesco stores until November 2,
Anne Borrett, Tesco’s toy category manager, said: “We know that with the cost of living squeeze Christmas can be quite a strain on the wallet – especially for families with more than one child – so we want to make it easier for them to spread the cost of buying presents.”
It is worth looking for the best deals and calculating delivery cost.
It doesn’t matter if a retailer has products on sale, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t find it cheaper elsewhere.
You can also monitor the price of your product. PriceHistory.co.uk can tell you if Tesco has ever stocked the same toys for less to give you an indication of when the best time to buy is.
You can also manually verify the product by entering it into Google and checking its prices.
We looked through the toys at Tesco and determined if we could find them cheaper.
Sylvanian Families Bluebell Cottage
The Sylvanian Families Bluebell Cottage, on offer at Tesco for £42 down from £70 was being sold for £39.99 at The Baby Farm.
George, part of Asda was sold the same toy for £40, so £2 less than Tesco.
However, Bargain Max was selling one for £42.99 so you’d make a saving by going with Tesco.
Lego City Stuntz Value Pack
Tesco was selling the Lego City Stuntz Value pack for £25.50 down from £43.
Although there are many products in the value range, we found something similar pack on Amazon for £27.97The Tesco Tesco pack is slightly more expensive than the Tesco pack.
Argos however was selling the product for £25, so 50p cheaper than Tesco.
Squishmallow Assist 14-inch
The squishmallow 14 inch Assist in Tesco was selling for £11.50.
Because there are so many types of prices, it was difficult to compare prices online. However, we did discover two that were more costly than Tesco.
Aldi had for sale a 14-inch Devin the Dragon Squishmallow on eBay for £23.17.
A 14-inch squishmallow can also be purchased £29.99 on Amazon UK.
How do I get a Clubcard
Clubcard is a loyalty scheme that gives customers vouchers to scan their membership cards at Tesco tills.
You get one point for every £1 spent – or one point for every £2 on fuel. 150 points is equivalent to a £1.50 voucher.
The vouchers can be spent at Tesco or with any of Tesco’s reward partners, such as Thorpe Park or Pizza Express.
Partner points can be redeemed to increase the value by up to threefold
That’s not all, and you can get discounts on selected products if you have a Clubcard, including getting your lunchtime meal deal for £3 instead of £3.50.
Online registration can be made for a Clubcard on the Tesco site.
