How to save money at the supermarket with Shopmium

Posted on

I’m a bit late to the party with these cashback apps, but I’m absolutely loving them!  Today I received my first pay out of £2.50 from Shopmium for buying some soup.  The offer was a ‘buy one get one free’, so I had to buy the two soups myself in Tesco, upload my receipt to the Shopmium app and then they sent the cashback directly to my PayPal account!  You can also choose to have it sent to your bank account instead.

I hadn’t even checked the app before going to the supermarket, but remembered to check it when I got home and saw that the soup I had already purchased was on the app.  I simply had to take a photo of the receipt and scan the barcode on the product to receive my cashback.

You could check the app before you go to the supermarket as it will save you money doing it this way round if you buy items that are on offer.  For example, you can choose to buy the on offer items as an alternative to what you normally buy.  So if you are going to buy crisps or soup anyway, as an example, then take a look at the app and see if there are some crisps or soup that have money off and buy these ones instead to save!

It’s also a great way to try new products by getting them at a discount.

How to save money at the supermarket with Shopmium cashback app

Which supermarkets can I save at with Shopmium?

Shopmium is a cashback app that helps you to save money every day in the supermarket.  They currently have offers in the following supermarkets:

  • Tesco
  • Sainsbury’s
  • Asda
  • Waitrose
  • Morrisons

How much can I save?

Every offer is different, but you can save up to 100%!  Some are money off vouchers such as 50p off, some are BOGOF and some are to try a product for free with 100% cashback!

Is it easy to use?

Yes!  It’s so simple and easy to use, so if you have a smartphone then definitely download the app and take a look.  As with most apps nowadays it just takes a little clicking around on the different tabs and icons to see what’s what and away you go!

Will I get paid quickly?

I am pretty sure you will.  I was paid in less than 48 hours after uploading my receipt.  The money went straight into my PayPal with no fees and it was only for £2.50.  Usually apps like these have a £20 threshold to avoid a fee or even to cash out at all, so this is a real bonus for using Shopmium – no pay out fees and they send you the money pretty much straight away so you don’t even have to cash out yourself.

I’m looking forward to saving a lot more money with Shopmium and will now check the app for every supermarket trip to see if anything tempts me or whether I can save on my usual shopping list.
