We were all sad to hear that MySupermarket were leaving us and wondered if anything would up appear to replace it. Well, we didn’t have to wait long.
The amazing Latest Deals team have been working day and night to code their new feature on their app. And it is ready for you to download.
Lots of you were using MySupermarket to get the best prices across supermarkets and Latest Deal have come to your rescue.
First off you need to download it, then you’ll find the comparison tool in the menu in the bottom right. Once loaded you will find a search bar at the top.
Type in what you were looking for and it will search across the six major supermarkets that offer delivery. These are Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s, Iceland, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s.
Once you have found the cheapest price you can choose to head there to pick up the items. If you search for multiple items then you can work out the cheapest place for your entire shop.
Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, said, “We started to receive hundreds of messages asking for help. Supermarket prices are increasing, there are fewer discounts, and the lack of stock for home brands means people are forced to upgrade to more expensive products.
“The only supermarket price comparison tool was MySupermarket. But this shutdown last month.
“I asked our community if they would find it helpful if we made a free alternative. The response was overwhelming. For some parents, saving 20p on bread is the difference between having food on the table or not. Thousands are losing their jobs and waiting for Universal Credit.
“Knowing where is cheapest to buy your essentials is critical and essential information at this time. People are rapidly descending into financial difficulty and we knew we had to do something.
“I think Kelsey, our tech whizz, has had 72 hours without proper sleep. We want to get this out to people to help them as fast as possible. It might not sound like a big deal to some folk, but when you only have £20 a week to feed your family, it’s a huge problem.
“MySupermarket closed without warning leaving millions of users with no alternative. They had 14 years of development with a professional team. We’ve made an alternative within 72 hours and it’s free for everyone.”
If you are a previous MySupermarket user then it will be a relief to know that there is a replacement available so quickly. Or if you are new to the idea, then here is a fantastic tool to help you save.
