This clever shopping hack will get you Prosecco for just £1.50 a bottle

Prosecco, light of our lives, fire of our loins.

There’s no point denying it: prosecco is one of our absolute favourite drinks, and for good reason. Not only does it taste phenomenal, but the bubbly concoction is also said to be packed to the brim with health benefits – which makes us feel less guilty when we order a glass alongside a luxury boozy brunch.

So, when we learned that those bargain hunters at Money Saving Expert have found a way to bag bottles of Prosecco for just £1.50 each, we were, naturally, all ears.

It involves being pretty savvy and combining three different online promotions (known as ‘code stacking’) to get “a corking deal on bottles of fizz” – which will make it far easier to stock up on the stuff in the run-up to Christmas.

All you have to do is visit the Sainsbury’s website and do the following…

Step 1: Find a cheap prosecco

Money Saving Expert recommends selecting the Sainsbury’s Prosecco Frizzante*, which is currently priced at £6 per bottle.

Step 2: Buy six bottles of the stuff

Add six bottles to your basket and you'll automatically get 25% off, thanks to Sainsbury's' 'Buy 6 save 25%' offer. For those doing the mathematics along with us at home, this will take your total down to just £27 (just £4.50 each for the Frizzante).

Step 3: Use this discount code

If you’re new to the Sainsbury’s website, you can boost the offer with the discount code SCSSEOOCT – this will give you £18 off when you spend £60.

However, there are some requirements for this to work: firstly, you’ll need to buy groceries you’d buy anyway (the total bill has to be a minimum of £60, with a minimum of £18 on stuff other than booze).

You also, according to the T&Cs of the deal, need to have your order delivered/collected before 11pm on Tue 3 Oct for this to work.

And, perhaps most importantly of all, you need to untick the box which says ‘allow substitutions’, as you’ll miss out on your booze completely if your chosen plonk isn’t in stock and just get the surplus groceries.

So, yes, it’s a little complicated. And, yes, it involves a lot of jiggery-pokery with online codes and the like. But, if you follow these steps, your Frizzante will work out at £1.50 per bottle – which is pretty incredible, in our opinion.

Tastes run towards the more expensive? Don’t despair: these steps also work on Antoine De Clevecy champagne*. Originally priced at £14 a pop, this ‘code stacking’ deal will get you your champers for £7.50 a bottle.

We’ll raise a glass to that!
