Savvy shopper snaps up £800 worth of gift sets for £15 in Superdrug’s whopping £1 sale
THERE's no better feeling that snapping up a bargain or two and saving yourself some serious cash.
And that's exactly what happened to one savvy shopper who lucked out and saved herself a huge £789 while stocking up on make-up in Superdrug's epic £1 flash sale.
Superdrug launched its mammoth sale on Wednesday exclusively for its Health & Beautycard members that saw must-have beauty gift sets reduced to just £1.
Shoppers have been sharing their epic hauls after stocking up on their bargain buys, with one mum purchasing £800 worth of beauty goods for just £15.
She shared her incredible haul of 15 Revolution make-up sets in Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.
Posting a screenshot of her thrifty order, the mum revealed her total before savings would have come to £804.96 – but thanks to the flash sale she saved herself £789.96.
"Revolution Makeup’s sets are now £1 for click and collect you also have to be a member. Superdrug website," she shared for fellow shoppers.
Among the items she had bought was the Revolution 196 Eyeshadow Palette that had previously been reduced to £15 from £30.
Thousands commented on the post, with many unconvinced that the sale was too good to be true.
Calling it out for not being the real deal, one person commented: "Ha they won’t give you that be awesome if you did get it thou (sic)."
It was very much official, though, with another shopper revealing: "Thank you so much for posting! I just got some great deals."
Items listed in the flash sale included the Revolution Advent Calendar that had already been slashed from £70 to £35 and comes with 25 make-up products, including lipsticks, lip glosses, eyeshadow palettes and brushes.
The Revolution You Are The Revolution Makeup Set Box which is priced at £80 was also available for £1. It features 12 exclusive make-up products, including an illuminating fixing spray and bronze and contour palette.
Some shoppers, however, narrowly missed out on the chance to secure their own reduced gift sets, with many complaining that people shouldn't be allowed to buy in bulk.
"I have just put 55 different items in my basket-just 1 of each and not one single item is available at any stores across the east midlands, i also noticed as i put 1 in it came up as 11 by accident and it came up saying 'This item is flying off the shelves so we are limiting customers to 10 of them' i think that ship sailed superdrug," said one woman.
Another vented: "These should be limited to one of each per person to give everyone a chance would have been perfect for my 2 daughters."
A third posted: "All gone already as people have gone greedy and bulk bought them."
You know what they say, gotta grab 'em while you can.
