It’s been a little while since my last blog post due to a lack of motivation, but this is something I couldn’t keep to myself and had to share with you. Especially during uncertain times and with many people needing to budget more seriously, I hope this helps.
Latest Deals have created a new supermarket price comparison tool which is completely free to use and are kindly sponsoring this blog post to help spread the word about it. I don’t take on a sponsorship unless I’ve tested out the product/service myself and truly want to tell you about it.
This blog post contains all the information you need to know about their new tool and 4 reasons why I really think you should give it a go
1. An alternative to MySupermarket
You may have heard of or used the UK’s biggest supermarket comparison site called MySupermarket which enabled us to compare prices of groceries and other items across major supermarkets. Unfortunately, earlier this month (March 2020), MySupermarket closed down after 14 years without much warning or an alternative for its users.
Much to our delight, the Latest Deals Supermarket Comparison Tool offers pretty much the same features and functions except it can only be found on the Latest Deals app. Watch the short tutorial video below from Tom to learn how it works:
(Waitrose has since been added to the list of supermarkets)
2. Up-to-date information
What Tom didn’t mention in the video is that the tool was created in just 72 hours by the three Latest Deals founders (Kelsey, Tom and Deepak) as a response after receiving various messages asking for help due to MySupermarket’s closure. How incredible!
If they can create an entire supermarket price comparison tool in just a few days, you can imagine how ‘on the ball’ these guys are and they’ll be making sure the tool is updated. In the case that you were using the tool then hoping to order online, it won’t show supermarkets who are under strain such as when their website is down or have a queue system. The results from those supermarkets will be temporarily hidden.
They currently only feature the main supermarkets that offer online shopping and home delivery: Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Tesco, ASDA and Morrisons.

3. Helps you to budget and save money
I wouldn’t be sharing this tool if it didn’t help you (and I) to save money or budget in some way.
The next time you’re writing the shopping list (you can sign up to my XXX here), input the items into the tool and keep track of the total cost for if you were to buy all of your shopping at each supermarket. That way, you’ll know where the cheapest would be to order from or visit, providing in-store prices are the same.
4. Helps you save time
I have an ASDA, Tesco and Sainsbury’s close to my house, so I always compare prices between them to help me decide where the cheapest place to go would be.
I would usually type each item into MySupermarket but since it’s closure, I’ve recently been checking the prices at each supermarket by having their websites open in a new tab and checking each item manually…it takes forever! So I’m very happy that Latest Deals will help me save time again as you only have to input each item once to see results for all supermarkets listed.
