Poundland shopper shares amazing £64 stationery haul she got for free after items scan as 0p at the till

A POUNDLAND shopper nabbed the freebie haul of a century after stationary items at the retailer scanned as 0p at the till.

The shopper in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook got her hands on 127 back to school items for free, saving her £63.50.

The freebies, which were reduced from 50p, included pens, notebooks and keyrings – perfect as kids are set to go back to school in September.

The shopper told The Sun she snapped up the freebies in Poundland's shop in Kettering.

She wrote on Facebook: "Poundland advertising stationary at 50p each, get to the till and it’s all scanning for FREE!!"

The post has proved popular among social media users, with one user saying: "God I wish, never that lucky".

And another added: "I’d go back round again."

They were initially reduced to 50p and then to 0p to clear stock, but sadly it's all sold out now.

Instead, it's rolled out its new stationary ranges with prices starting from £1 per item.
