Coles shopper reveals how she scored a massive $160 food haul for $8

A shopper told how she managed to pick up a huge quantity of heavily discounted meat from Coles.

Alexandria, from Newcastle, visited her local store at 6pm on Saturday and saw an abundance of discounted products.

The groceries include chicken schnitzel, diced beef, ground beef, spicy chicken wings, Lilydale chicken, diced chicken breast, beef pie and a huge tray of croissants.

If she had paid full price, it would have cost $158.89 here, but because some products were reduced to just 38 cents, Alexandria only paid $8.47.

When sharing images to the Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook group, the cheapest item was a pack of chicken thighs for 39 cents, while the most expensive at just 79 cents was the Coles beef pie.

The tray of croissants also cost 55 cents – a savings of $10.45.

Alexandria pointed out that it was a matter of “coincidence” that she was able to score the incredible purchases because she went to the supermarket at the right time.

Previously, others who have also managed to score huge discounts at Coles and Woolworths have revealed that the price cuts vary from store to store.

Some prefer to shop first thing in the morning, while others drop by right before closing in hopes of finding some discounts.

Alexandria’s Facebook post made many jealous, with others admitting they have ‘never’ come across discounted purchases at their local Coles.

‘Awesome!! It is better that it is sold than that it is put in the container at the end of the day,” said one person.

“That’s what my dreams are made of. Well done,” another added, while a third said: “Good for you! Our Coles NEVER have a discount like that.’

‘You made it!! Wouldn’t be an advertising location, otherwise you’d never see this again,” another joked.

Last month, a money-saving mom spotted a very cheap deal on a kid’s snack at Costco Wholesalers.

The Canberra woman found a pack of 12 Rafferty’s Garden Chocolate Custard Pouches for just 97 cents.

The pack of 12 was less than half the price of one bag of chocolate custard from Coles or Woolworths, which costs up to $2.15.

She shared the budget find online, impressing parents looking for ways to save on their children’s school lunches and snacks.

“I was at Costco this morning and yes, it cost $0.97 for 12 Rafferty Garden chocolate bags,” the mother wrote on the Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook group.
