LONDON, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- mySupermarket and Savoo join forces to get Britain the deals it wants
- The UK's recession means we look for deals more than ever before
Research from Savoo, the UK's fastest growing money saving and voucher code website, shows the UK's shopping habits have changed dramatically in the last three years, but it is grocery shopping where the UK consumer wants to make the most savings and get the best deals. On the back of this informative research, Savoo has teamed up with mySupermarket in a ground-breaking initiative to offer its users access to the very best deals from all the UK major supermarkets.
Savoo's research shows a staggering 85% of women surveyed would use a discount code or coupon in supermarkets if it meant they would get a better price - perhaps indicating the UK is heading towards the extreme couponing culture of the US. Traditionally polite Britons are also changing their attitudes to using voucher codes, with 80% of respondents not being embarrassed to make a saving on the items they purchase compared with 70% two years ago.
Simon Bird, General Manager of Savoo commented, "This research shows how the UK is a nation of savvy shoppers using voucher codes and deals to get the best prices all the time with grocery prices, understandably being top of the agenda. We wanted to create an online solution for our members and we are delighted to be working with a brand like mySupermarket that has a first class solution to our problem"
James Foord, VP Business Development at mySupermarket remarked, "We are delighted to be working with Savoo to help more customers become savvy with their grocery shopping. With over 30,000 special offers currently available across the supermarkets, it's impossible for consumers to find the best deals for them, so we do this for them, helping them to cut their weekly grocery bill by 20%."
Other findings show the north / south divide strikes again, as it's the savvy people of Glasgow that make the most of discount vouchers by saving an average £526 a year on their grocery shopping, compared to the not so savvy people of Plymouth who only save £4.10 a week. Perhaps not surprisingly, it's the internet savvy young people of the UK that make the most of online deals and discounts with those aged 16-24 saving an average of £8.40 on their weekly shopping compared to those aged 55+ who save on average £5.
Savoo has over 200,000 deals on its site and is the only deal provider in the UK to offer consumers a 'personalised' deal newsletter and a customised and unique homepage. This page is packed with deals the consumers want and have asked for, eliminating the hundreds of daily deal emails and alerts that plague a user's inbox.
