Boots shoppers rush to buy everyday essentials scanning for just 1p at tills | The Sun

BOOTS shoppers are rushing out to buy an everyday essential scanning for a staggeringly low 1p at the tills.

Retailers often slash prices on products to clear excess stock and it means you can get your hands on some absolute bargains.

And one shopper managed to find such a steal in her local Boots branch.

The savvy saver posted photos on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group of the Dove for Men shower gel scanning for just 1p.

The same 55ml size is selling for £1.50 on Boots' website, meaning the shopper managed to get a 99% discount.

The original Facebook post has been liked dozens of times, with plenty in awe of the haul.

One said: "They've had this offer on for ages! It's fabulous I have loads."

Another said: "My Boots never have things like these," while a third simply added: "Enjoy."

Of course, you should always shop around when buying any product as you might find it cheaper elsewhere.

You can use price comparison websites such as Price Spy, Price Runner and Trolley.

Meanwhile, the Google Shopping tab is a quick way to scour the internet and see what a product is on sale for at different retailers.

Of course, you won't get this Dove shower gel for less than 1p, but you can save money shopping around in other cases.

Also bear in mind, the shopper found the Dove shower gel for this specific price at Boots' Telford branch in Shropshire.

You might not be able to find it for the same price in your local branch, which you can find using the retailer's store locator.

But either way, there are some other ways you can get discounted products from Boots without leaving the house.

Every Tuesday, the retailer slashes prices on products for just 24 hours – and you can get up to 80% off.

We've previously spotted Glo32 Teeth Whitening Kits for £10 instead of £30 and a Toy Story iPhone case for £10 instead of £24.

How else to save money at Boots

Beyond £10 Tuesdays, there's a few other ways you can scrimp and save at Boots.

You'll want to check out the clearance section on the retailer's website where you can get massive discounts.

Some physical branches have clearance sections too, but where they are located varies branch-to-branch.

Meanwhile, it's worth signing up to the retailer's loyalty scheme – the Boots Advantage Card.

Customers can get exclusive discounts on thousands of products and build up loyalty points to get money off future purchases.

Meanwhile, Boots is known for offering heavy discounts on electrical goods, such as electric toothbrushes, hair dryers and Fit Bits.
