ASDA is the latest supermarket to promise lower prices at the checkout to help ease the cost of living crisis.
Shoppers will find cheaper price tags on more than 100 items on the retailer’s shelves.
That includes Asda’s own products and brand names like John West Blue Dragon and Pataks.
And it covers essential ranging from fruit and veg to cereal, rice and cheese.
Not only will 買い物客 be getting cheaper prices after the drop, Asda has vowed to keep them locked at that until the end of the year.
Asda shoppers will be able to spot the discounted items with a “dropped and locked” logo in store and online.

It comes as millions of households face rising costs, ranging from food to energy bills.
Inflation has hit 7% and could rise further meaning that more of people’s incomes are going on the usual outgoings and for many that is leaving them short.
Recent official data form the Office for National Statistics shows the cost of some food products like margarine and other vegetable fats have shot up a whopping 37.2% 過去1年間.
Pasta and couscous have gone up by 14.9%, and jam, marmalade and honey by 13.6%.
Another store cupboard staple, 卵, です 8% more expensive than this time last year.
More people than ever are looking to slash costs of everyday items, and the weekly shop is one of the major outgoings for families and individuals alike.
Asda’s new prices includes diced chicken breast, 500g, reduced from £3.87 to £3.65 and Asda’s own-brand bleach, 750ml, reduced from 80p to 75p.
The supermarket’s easy cook rice, 500g, will fall from £1 to 75p and Cheerios (300g) and Shreddies (390g) will both drop from £2.15 to £2.
But just because the price has been slashed doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the cheapest available.
For instance we spotted the same size chicken breast at Tesco for £3.20 and Morrisons own brand thick bleach is 49p – both cheaper than Asda.
Asda’s easy cook rice was the cheapest we found at 75p for that size, but Aldi offers a larger 1kg bag for £1 which works out cheaper overall.
Supermarkets can change the price of items from one day to the next, depending on a variety of factors like its own costs or deals and discounts.
That means the Asda items could be cheaper another day, but there are other ways to keep your shopping costs down too.
Asda isn’t the only supermarket lowering prices and Morrisons and Sainsbury’s have made similar moves to cut prices on certain items.
Here’s the full list of more than 100 items that Asda has cut prices on, plus more ways to save on your supermarket shop below.

How to reduce the cost of your supermarket shop
Yellow sticker shopping
Keep an eye out for yellow sticker food to get the biggest bargains.
Supermarkets will often reduce the price of food nearing its use by date to shift stock and avoid food wastage.
These items are usually tagged with yellow stickers, showing how much the item has been reduced by.
You can get up to 75% off products in some cases, so it’s worth hunting for these deals if you’re on a budget.
If you’ve spotted a バーゲン in this section but aren’t sure you’ll have time to eat it before it goes off, buy it and chuck it in the freezer, says money saving guru Naomi Willis.
ナオミ, who runs finance blog Skint Dad with her husband Ricky, 前記: “Be more conscious of use by dates and freeze what you won’t use straight away to avoid throwing food away.”
Use loyalty schemes
Many supermarkets have schemes in place providing incentives – such as vouchers for money off your groceries – to incentivise shoppers to keep buying at their stores.
例えば, Sainsbury’s runs its Nectar card reward scheme, where customers receive points every time they shop in stores.
To get one Nectar point you need to spend £1 in Sainsbury’s store, or you get one Nectar point for every litre of fuel purchased in Sainsbury’s fuel stations.
The scheme now offers personalised discounts based on customers’ shopping habits – and claims you can save £200 a year on your groceries.
モリソンズ’ has recently revamped its loyalty scheme あまりにも.
Instead of collecting points to get money off shopping, customers are now offered instant rewards when they spend money in stores.
Shoppers at Tesco can cheaper prices with a Clubcard, on top of building up points when they spend.
We’ve previously explained which supermarket loyalty schemes are the best and worst value for money.
Plan your meals
It can be tempting to buy your groceries based on what you fancy at the time you’re trawling round the aisles.
But this can be an expensive way of shopping – as you can often buy much more than you need.
Planning your meals in advance means that you can stick to a list of food you know you need – instead of buying food you want, according to savvy saver Charlotte Jessop.
シャーロット, who owns the money saving blog Looking After Your Pennies, 前記: “One of the best ways to save money on food is to meal plan.
“This means that you only buy what you need and therefore stops you from throwing away as much.
“If you combine this with checking your cupboards before you start your plan, you’ll find that you can save loads of money by only buying exactly what you need.”
Check price per quantity
Charlotte also saves cash on her shopping by checking the price per quantity on goods.
You might be tempted to opt for a bigger box or packaging because you think you might get more.
But it’s always worth checking the price per kg/lb/litre when comparing offers so you’re making a like for like decision.
“Rather than looking at the total cost, I look at how much it costs per 100g say,” シャーロットは言った.
“This means that I can compare products more easily to check I am getting the best deal.”
Use food waste apps
Families waste an average of £720 on unused food per year according to food charity Waste & Resources Action Programme.
But there are plenty of apps you can use that cut food waste and reduce your shopping bill – helping you save more and waste less.
例えば, Kitche keeps track of the food you bought at the supermarket and lets you know when items are getting close to their sell by date – promising to save you £630 a year.
一方 Too Good To Go means you can buy food and treats from shops including Morrisons, Greggs and Pret at a big discount.
