COUPON queen Holly Smith (aka Holly Vlogs) has revealed how she uses the B&M app to find bargains at lower prices, as shoppers share their incredible buys that cost just 10p.
The B&M app is known for allowing savvy shoppers to nab huge discounts that actually cost much less than what they’re labelled on the shop floor.
It involves using a barcode scanner to check the real price of products in store.
Discount guru Holly, 45, from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, is a huge fan of the B&M app and has revealed how to use it while you’re shopping.
In a video posted online to her 73,000 subscribers, Holly is seen on the hunt for a bargain as she browses the aisles.
She finds a Thorntons milk elf scanning at 39p instead of 69p, as well as a Scuba Splash slime toy reduced from £3.99 to £3.
There’s also a pack of bow socks down from £3.99 to £2, and a Beauty and the Beast bath set reduced from £3.99 to £2.
Holly explains your best chance of finding products at lower prices is to check seasonal items.
So if you’re shopping now, you’ll want to check products that were released over the summer period.
Holly said: “It’s definitely worth going to your local B&M and looking around.”
Her tips have definitely caught the attention of savvy buyers as a quick scan on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group reveals other huge discounts.
We’ve seen how one woman managed to find a bubble mood light lamp for just 10p.
While another person bought a children’s police car play set, also for 10p.
How to use the app
SAVVY shoppers are using an app to find better discounts in stores.
Here’s how you can join the B&M bargain hunt:
- Download the B&M app for free on any smartphone with an App Store or Google Play.
- Once you’ve installed it on your device, click on the option labelled “more” on the bottom, right-hand side of the app home page.
- You’ll then find an option that says “barcode scanner”. Click on this and you’ll open a camera screen.
- Use the camera to hover over the barcode of the product you wish to check.
- If the price comes up as lower, take it to the cash desk and it will automatically scan at the lower price.
- You don’t need to sign up to the B&M app to use the barcode scanner.
We previously spoke to one mum who managed to find a Spiderman toy for just 10p in B&M.
While the discounter was also flogging 10ft and 6ft pools for just £1 as they cleared out summer stock.
B&M says the discounts you’ll find with the barcode app will vary between stores, so what you’ll find is by no means guaranteed.
The retailer told the Daily Mirror: “B&M has thousands of items the barcode scanner app which works great for seasonal and end of lines which have been reduced but not yet marked down on display.”
