Sainsbury's shoppers share bargain toy hauls as it launches massive half-price sale in stores

SAINSBURY’S shoppers are sharing pictures of their epic toy sale hauls as the supermarket slashes prices by up to 50% across stores.

The discounts include popular brands like Fortnite, Lego, Marvel and Jurassic World.

Other sale items include Barbie and Paw Patrol, as well as products from V-Tech.

Sainsbury’s confirmed it is running an up to half price toy sale, but the supermarket told The Sun that the reductions will vary between stores.

This means some of the products other shoppers have found may not necessarily be available in your nearest shop.

The sale is in stores only, so you won’t find the deals online, and it will run until Wednesday, October 21.

It follows similar toy sales from Tesco, Morrisons and Asda in the run-up to Christmas.

Writing on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains group on Facebook, one shopper shared an image of a display box filled with half price toys.

It showed a Paw Patrol jungle rescue patroller reduced from £70 to £35, as well as reductions on Lego and Spiderman toys – although its not clear what the prices for these are.

Another shopper, posting from a different store, showed how a Fortnite figure set had been slashed from £50 to £25.

A third customer, meanwhile, said she picked up a giant Jurassic World toy for £35 instead of £70 in her local Sainsbury’s.

And a fourth shopper, again from a different shop, shared a huge pile of seven V-Tech products.

This customer told The Sun each product was half price.

How to compare prices to get the best deal

JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.

There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you – so don't be left paying more than you have to.

Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.

Here are some that we recommend:

  • Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
  • Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
  • Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
  • CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.

As the discounts vary between stores, Sainsbury's said it couldn't give us a definitive list of what could be available.

If you're looking to stock up for Christmas presents, we suggest popping down to your nearest supermarket to see what's available.

Sainsbury's has around 800 supermarkets and 600 convenience stores in the UK – use the online shop locator tool to find your nearest one.

But before you part ways with any cash, we’d always recommend comparing prices online to make sure you’ve found the best deal.
