B&M shoppers rushing to buy household item scanning for £1 instead of £70 | The Sun

B&M shoppers are rushing to buy a household item scanning at the till for £1 instead of £70.

The discount retailer is known for selling items for a great price.

One shopper has stumbled across a TV unit that was listed at £70 but scanned at the till for just £1.

She posted her find in Facebook's B&M, Bargains and other stores group.

Shoppers were very impressed in the comments.

One said: "Absolutely gorgeous! Where is that please?"

I completely transformed my tiny kitchen for £170 with some bargain B&M buys

While someone else added: "Which shop?"

When we checked online, we couldn't see the exact TV unit on the B&M website.

Though there are similar ones going, but the cheapest starts at £34.

Elsewhere, we couldn't find anything cheaper but as a comparison, Denelm had a similar one for £89.

It's important to shop around for the best deal, as you may be able to find something even cheaper.

It's also worth noting that price and stock can vary from store to store, so it may be a better shout to head down to your local shop rather than trying online.

How can I save money via the B&M scanner app?

One way to save money at B&M is via the scanner app.

The barcode scanner in the app lets you see if the item's price is cheaper than advertised on the shop shelf.

The B&M scanner is located on the B&M Stores mobile app, which can be downloaded for free on your smartphone.

Shoppers can download it on the App Store or Google Play.

Once you've got the app, click on the "scan" button at the bottom of your homepage.

This will then bring up the camera on your smartphone, which you'll need to use to scan barcodes.

When you've found a product you want to scan, simply point your smartphone camera toward its barcode.

The app will then automatically bring up the item's price – this is when you'll know if it is reduced or not.

Bargain hunters say some items come up as £1, 50p or even 10p through the app.

But of course, not all items will scan at a lower price – so don't be disappointed if the thing you're after isn't reduced.

Quite often, you'll need to have plenty of time on your hands to go around and scan a lot of items in store.

While the reductions can seem random, it's usually items that are seasonal or old stock.

Another thing to note is that the reductions do sometimes vary between stores.

This means that just because something is reduced in one B&M, prices vary from store to store depending on stock levels.

But if you do get lucky and find a bargain, the product should scan at that price at the till.
