Shopper reveals trick for getting the biggest ‘magic bag’ food discounts up to £25 including from Morrisons and M&S | The Sun
A LUCKY shopper has shared how they bagged a MASSIVE amount of food worth £30 from the supermarket for just a few quid.
Ready meals, burgers and sausages were among the bumper bag of goods, which cost only £5.
Sharing the haul on Facebook, the post and picture racked up hundreds of likes on the platform and dozens of comments.
The savvy saver said: "This is my bag I just collected. It cost me £5 but there's £20+ worth of stuff here."
Their bumper find – which includes Waitrose pork sausages, veggie burgers and battered chicken with sweet and sour sauce – would have cost £30.26 at full price.
They picked up the shopping from a branch of Little Waitrose at a service station using the Too Good To Go app.
The shopper said they always find the best deals to be in grocery chains attached to petrol stations or service stations.

They said: "As most people don't use them for their main shops, they have a lot of great food that doesn't get purchased.
"They also have a lot of comparatively small bakery/green grocer areas.
"This means the likelihood of your bag being full of stale or shriveled items is smaller."
This means there could be potentially huge savings on supermarkets including Morrisons, Marks and Spencer and Asda.

Other members of the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group also said they were big fans of bargain hunting from petrol stations.
One commented: "I had one from my local M&S garage. £4 and had £25 worth of products. Froze it and had meals sorted for a few days. Well worth it."
Too Good to Go connects hungry Brits with well known shops, cafes and restaurants that have surplus food so that it doesn't go to waste.
Users can nab huge discounts on food that would have otherwise gone in the bin.
Users of the app can get bundles of food that's left unsold in what are called magic bags – but what's in it and how much you get varies according to what's leftover at the end of the day.
One bargain hunter managed to bag a bumper bag of baked goods from Greggs for just £2.50 using the app.
They told The Sun they picked up the haul of sweet treats from Greggs in Archway, London.
Another shopper used Too Good To Go to nab themselves a bag of groceries from Co-op for just £4.
There's never any guarantee of how much you'll get in bags, or if it's something you'll like.
But it's worth checking out if your local garage shop offers bigger bundles, like this shopper recommends.
